"A always
B be
C closing"

May-26-13  Tatumart: I had the wonderful experience of watching this game as it was played by these two great players. I had skipped playing in the tournament that year, deciding instead to be a spectator. I can't believe that I stood for five hours about two feet away from Gata's right side without leaving. This was @ one of the many tables in the large hall that day. When playing if anyone stood that close to me I would ask that person to stand away. They most likely never even noticed me. True, I did not move nor make a sound but i was soooo close. A few minutes after the game finished I was in the central hall, where many people were about, when I noticed young Kamsky walking through. He made a quick skip or two then returned to his regular gait, a slight smile which had appeared then left his face.
