Kasparov

Don't let his cover fool you. Underneath that pristine leather-bound book may be a dark and ugly story that will leave you feeling horrified. The attraction you have now is only skin deep and someone who seemed nice and likeable on your first chance encounter may become less attractive if you find flaws in the quality of his moral character and emotional depth.

<and a real threat himself.>

I agree, he has become a real threat to his parents and young kids and adults who continue to idolize him.

  LucB: 1) Naka
2) So
3) Kasparov
4) Caruana
Apr-26-16  MCDreamz: 1) Nakster
2) So'er
3) Caru'er
4) Kasper
Apr-26-16  morfishine: Biorhythms are the key to everything
Apr-26-16  RookFile: Hard to imagine Naka not winning the blitz tournament.
Apr-27-16  jphamlore: It's good Caruana keeps getting these decent paydays after winning. The FIDE Grand Prixs pay so little Caruana can't even afford to take his second to the events, just pathetic on FIDE's part.

  WorstPlayerEver: It was a very nice tournament indeed. Let's hope Gary Vaporax is not coming to spoil the fun.

tuttifruity or trulyfruity?

Evidence please? Just because he broke away from Susan Polgar's school? That he prefers his "adopted" family in America rather than his original one in the Philippines? Neither of these qualify to me as worthy of your black statements.

Apr-30-16  epistle: Oh no, not that email again where he called his mother a whore and that chessbase article with his father's head with stitches like he was embalmed or something.

Do your homework and it will clear your foggy state of mind.
