Mar-10-12  wordfunph: "The only problem with the Sicilian Defence is that you sometimes get mated."

- IM Erling Mortensen

Mar-10-12  brankat: I have a funny feeling that he is still very much active. Right here at CG! :-)
Mar-10-12  brankat: <wordfunph> <"The only problem with the Sicilian Defence is that you sometimes get mated."

- IM Erling Mortensen>

The same seems to be the problem with every defense ;-)

Apr-05-12  wordfunph: <brankat> amen :)

<Danish IM Erling Mortensen quoted Larsen in calling the Wing Gambit 'the most logical way' to meet the French.>
