Jun-10-06  independentthinker: This match ended after one move, as the opponent didn't turn up - he was away with Gormally's girl hehe
Jun-10-06  cotdt: hehehe... should it be 1-0 then?
Jun-10-06  independentthinker: Gormally wrote 1-0 on his pad, but was later intimidated into accepting a draw. I think the fued with the Armenian mafia goes back a long way...

Jul-26-08  FizzyY: a3. . .wow black was quite lucky.
