Sep-16-13  Everett: I have so many people on ignore, I imagine I am not first. Which gets me thinking; if you can ignore all the right users, you can be <first> on nearly every thread... Quite lonely though.

Congrats Grischuk!

Sep-16-13  Everett: Well, that's a first! Lets see if I can bring attention to some positions of interest for our fellow kibitzers, especially from my very favorite time control.
Sep-16-13  The Last Straw: (Not) FIRST!!!

Sep-17-13  jphamlore: It's too bad a place could not be found for Le Quang Liem to compete, the man who just recently defeated Grischuk in rapid play tie-break at World Cup 2013.
Sep-19-13  znsprdx: 39 great games and this is all the commentary?

This type of tournament is the only time we get to see Chess we less-than-elite players can ever hope to understand: watching 2700+ players miss mates in two etc...

Of which nine were Blitz (but designated for 4,5 years as Rapid in CG, who cares). Slips sent.
