  Sally Simpson: Time for a re-cap:

(and cap being the appropriate word)

Wesley and Anish tied for first place and Wes won the tie 1½ - ½.

Anish later said he was kind of glad he did not win because he escaped having to wear that hat.

Vid of the award ceremony and you will see a relieved Anish watching Wes getting fitted up.

Nov-19-15  Fiona Macleod: ...which is precisely the reason the likes of you are still here.
Nov-19-15  Fiona Macleod: <iking: fancy elephants, they did not know what they done was an attack on the farmer ...>

and while the farmer had driven away the gentle elephants he has in his farm a lot of snakes and scorpions.

Lol! Talking crap by your definition is not going "Bless you Wesley!", "Go, Wesley!", "Idol, Wesley!" Yada yada, Wesley? lol!

This is a chess site. Put up your own site where you can sing hossanas to your idol and burn offerings if you like.

Pick someone your own small size, man. I have bigger fries to fish. You try to sound like a gong, but you're just a kama-soft and fluffy.

Nov-19-15  kamagong24: @gokumodta hello fan dont forget your pills, or your bubbles will burst

@pulo y gata yes idiot! this is a chess site for chess fans, you dont scare me, you're just a crab whose envious of other people's achievements, the way you talk shows your insecurities, you're nothing!!!

Nov-19-15  Fiona Macleod: The virus is innocent. It didn't volunteer. It was <caught.>

Well, let's set the record straight: I won't ever dream of cursing my mother and calling her whore and denouncing my family. So I envy nothing.

Meanwhile, you, have you taken the same path as WBS and did the same to your parents? Or perhaps your children cursed and denounced you yourself? Bless you, Kama.

  iking: <Fiona Macleod: The virus is innocent. It didn't volunteer. It was <caught.>> ... maybe blame the english idiom ... he was 'infected'by it...
Nov-25-15  Fiona Macleod: I don't think it's the english idiom either. Look for example what you've written at the So page:

<iking... bring it on ... Wesley will be apt to the challenge>

Being "APT to the challenge" is not even an idiomatic expression. First time I've heard of such strange utterance.

Dec-01-15  posoo: Also known as da most BOARING tornament of all time! Da players should be ASHOMED of themselves!
Dec-01-15  Dr. Overlord: That's what you get for inviting a douche, a weirdo, a chink and that guy that looks like he's wearing a toupée.

Trump outs himself! The reference to a toupee is clearly intended to throw us off the scent.

Dec-01-15  Dr. Overlord: <keypusher> BUSTED!! LOL. No, seriously, don't tell me this can be his real hair:

His hair looks fake!!

Dec-14-15  kamagong24: Meanwhile, you, have you taken the same path as WBS and did the same to your parents? Or perhaps your children cursed and denounced you yourself? Bless you, Kama -- im not surprised crabs can come up with this, its the way they simply are!!!

Happy Holidays!!! and

BLESS YOU WESLEY!!!

"I think Wesley is better than me in fast chess." - Anish Giri, Bilbao Masters 2015

"He's still stronger than me." - Anish Giri, Tata Steel Chess Tournament 2016 Press conference

I agree with you GM Anish. With all my might!
