AnimusEtOblivio: <OhioChessFan> I can't speak for others, but most of my time solving is generally during on the front half of the competition. This year I wasn't able to show up till the 10th clue, and there weren't too many clues left before Christmas was closing in. It's kinda weird

AnimusEtOblivio: Merry Christmas all!

AnimusEtOblivio: As <Penguincw> mentioned, it seems the Klu banner doesn't display on the home page. (At least at the time of the first Klue)

AnimusEtOblivio: Merry Christmas <wordfunph>! Hopefully the holiday season finds you well, and full of good cheer.

AnimusEtOblivio: Is there a particular reason the Holiday Contest banner appears on most pages except the homepage when a clue is unsolved? I don't remember this being the case in past years. Perhaps it is just a minor glitch? Just thought I would bring up the subject, in case

  eternaloptimist: Hi <Animus>, how have u been doing? I c that u r doing very well again @ chessbookie & r @ the #2 spot. I'm glad to c that u r doing so well again. I remember @ the end of the championship leg that u won that u said u were looking forward to me being in the top 10. I did indeed make it to the top 10 (as high as #7), but unfortunately for me i didn't stay there a long time & dropped out of it. Although, I'm going to give it my best shot to get back up there. I'm sure that u r as excited as I am about the candidates matches! I hope that u r doing well.

  AnimusEtOblivio: @EternalOptimist- Great work, and keep your head up. I have been doing well, but as I am sure you can tell, I have had quite a few rough bets as of late.

@Wordfunph- It is a shame that Aronian's play was so lackluster. Perhaps it had to do with his illness? Regardless, that proved to be a major setback in terms of betting. Congrats on your current results; I hope you can work your way up to the top 3.

  eternaloptimist: @Animus: thanks! i'm trying to keep my head up. i just turned 42 on may 31 so that raised my spirits a lot spending time with friends & family. although unfortunately it's not always like that. i see that you have had some rough bets indeed. i'm willing to bet you will rebound really well eventually from them though. you are really good at chessbookie. i'm glad to hear that you are doing well.
