  Sneaky: I'm sensing somebody who's name starts with an "A." Somebody close to you, you know somebody who starts with an "A"? I think it's A...nna. Yes Anna, or Alan. Amy? Arnold? Augustus? Oh you say your mother's name is Alina? Yes that's it, Alina. When did she pass away?

Alina is here, she wants to tell you that she loves you very much and that you should do your best always.

Oh yes, I also see a surgery. I see a surgery. Alina knew somebody who had a surgery. A man in fact. This man is very outgoing among friends but other times he can be very shy. I think the man's name has the letter "E" in it, or "A."

  tamar: <Sneaky> Psychic abilities a pretty handy tool for correspondence chess.

"I'm seeing a closed game, but one that may come open at any time. I'm getting the letter B in connection with a possible diagonal move..."

This guy is actually pretty interesting in his own right.

~ Jonathan Edwards, US Correspondence champ.

Apr-03-12  wordfunph: Jon Edwards won the 10th United States Correspondence Championship in 1997 and author of the book The Chess Analyst.

Apr-03-12  qqdos: He's also the author of a more recent book (2011) Sacking the Citadel - The History, Theory and Practice of the Classic Bishop Sacrifice (Bxh7+!) - all very deeply classified, what he calls a taxonomy. Don't offer the Greek (Greco) Gift without checking your assets with this splendid book!
