Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-02-04  alexandrovm: he was junior world champ some years ago, so I expect to here from this guy in the future, fighting for a position in the top ten chess players
Oct-30-05  soberknight: He can beat good players. He has an Acs to grind.

He's also got the <formula> for success (Acs = American Chemical Society)

Jan-23-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Acs Peter is lucky to be from Eger, it's a beautiful historic city, right in the middle of a great wine region most famous for its Bull's Blood (Bikavér) wine.

May-07-06  BIDMONFA: Peter Acs

ACS, Peter

Aug-07-07  Tomlinsky: I admire Acs creativity when he is sparking, he has quite an interesting style although rarely plays these days. It's good to see him performing well at the Marx György Memorial beating Harikrishna and Hou.

Korchnoi usually has his card marked, as you would expect, but they are often interesting tussles so will look out for that encounter. It is good to see he can still mix it up against good opposition despite his being virtually retired from the game.

Dec-03-18  Count Wedgemore: <perfidious: Believe the pronunciation is the same as the English word 'arch'.>

The way an Englishman would pronounce it, yes. Without pronouncing the 'r', like you Americans usually do.
