Sort of.

Jul-26-13  Krogerman: Thank for posting all the games they can for the World Open 2013. Had to work and hopefully it will be in Virginia again next year and I can go to it.

  FSR: Armageddon games are stupid IMO - especially when Black "wins" by drawing the game. They should just have co-champions.
