Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-20-06  xenophon: who he?
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: Switzerland's #5 GM, rated 2520 (Jan. 2006). He also plays in the Bundesliga for the Godesberger SK.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chnebelgrind: The most talented player Switzerland ever had (Don't be annoyed Yannick, my assessement is not sacrosnct).
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: <Chnebelgrind> <most talented player Switzerland ever had> What do you think, Severin Papa might have just as much talent if not more. Don't forget he's five years younger than Jenni and already has a ranking of 2445.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chnebelgrind: <cu8sfan> you are right. Sorry Severin. As I noticed before <my assessement is not sacrosanct>
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: <Chnebelgrind> Of course it's difficult to judge, it's just with Severin being five years younger... And by the way, I didn't mean to belittle Jenni's achievements!
Jan-20-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Did you ever meet this player, <cu8sfan>? In Biel perhaps?
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: I never "met" him but I've seen him play at the Christmas open in Zurich. And we were playing in the same hall for a team event once. I was the last board still playing of our team and he stopped by but left after only a couple of seconds. That's when I knew I was really in trouble. (-;
Jan-20-06  EmperorAtahualpa: LOL <cu8sfan> and did you actually lose that game?
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: Yes, I did. )-: I remember the game because after 25 moves there were still all pieces and pawns on the board. Btw, Jenni won his game if I remember correctly.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: Congratulations for winning the Swiss Championship!
