Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-04  ashalpha: This girl would be very distracting to play against. Probably would have the same affect as Kasparov's stare.
Aug-08-04  Lawrence: Does look like Angelina Jolie, doesn't she?!

Aug-08-04  tomh72000: Well, I guess she does a little, but she's no Almira.
Dec-12-06  Maatalkko: <ashalpha> She would have a very different effect on me than Kasparov would. But whatever floats your boat I guess.
