Jan-09-20  posoo: now dis - DIS - is a true smashing in da finest Posooian style! sum say dat da man MORUZEVCH is merCURIAL and not suited for da rigurs of chesse.

But DIS proves dat he is still SLEDGHAMERING his way through weak playors, which is all dat matters.

WHO WANTS to become world champion? It is a waste of human effort and precious resources. Keep smashing, keep SMILING.
