  WannaBe: I will try to get a photo of him Sunday at the tournament.
Nov-26-05  sitzkrieg: Can't wait. YOu think his bodyguards will let u pass?

but seriously, amazing u can take pictures of all those GM's. Every tournament i go they are in areas I am not allowed. Not that i want to take pictures of GM's, they are often disturbingly ugly..

  WannaBe: <sitzkrieg> LOL. Don't know if you read my post from dated friday nov. 25th, ALL the GM/IMs were very very kind to my request of photo!

I have experienced smoking next to them while they speak in their native language, ate lunch next to their table at Burger King! =)

Jun-02-16  Howard: Just saw Adamson at the Chicago Open this past weekend. He got off to a poor start, however, and dropped out after four rounds.

He's now an estate-planning attorney.
