Mar-20-08  midknightblue: Mr Meyers, I dont know if you come to chessgames. If so, I would like let you know of my appreciation for your game Mayers Gugliamone recently published in NIC yearbook 86. Also, I am quite jealous that you travel the world playing chess tournaments. :) Best wishes for continued success.

  technical draw: Incredible auto-biography. Is this guy for real? So many accomplishments, so many adventures. And he's still going strong! But I don't think I can take 200 nutritional supplements per day.
