  offramp: There are some pictures from various Linareseses at chessbase, http://en.chessbase.com/post/linare... It is interesting to see the orientation of different players' knights. Most seem to face forward. Some both face left, oddly.

My knights both look towards the king.

LOL at the photos of a long-haired Kramnik!!!!
