  Peligroso Patzer: A nice game, indeed. Obviously, it didn't matter, but if the game score is accurate, Schiller missed the most convincing win at move 47 (47. Bf5+, forking King and Rook).

  Eric Schiller: The People's Open is held annually in the People's Republic of Berkeley, located across the bay from San Francisco. It is known for the traditional loud drum circles circling the building and great food and drink within walking distance. It is one of my favorite events, and an annual (Impeach) President's Weekend pilrimage.
Nov-13-06  BadTemper: This is chess. I love it.
