Hey Foggy,

Just paste the PGN here (click 'View PGN for this game' and copy and paste it here). I'll do the rest.

Congrats!

Hey hey heeeey.

Cant we talk about Mats win in a smaller case lettering or something????

Seriously, our two games were ugly! I'll need to run both games through Chessmaster 9 or whatever i have, but from memory we both missed mate or check mate 2 or 3 times in our games. And thats not including one move that moved Mat to write me during our game explaining his last turn might have been the worst move of his life - and thats saying something because i was trying to bait Mat into talking Celtics basketball with no reply :)

Agreed - go the Celts. I followed them since i was 7. I sent a couple of messages about lucking out with a top two pick, then tried to mention the Allen and KG trades just to get you to stop thinking chess for a minute on my games :)

Not to date myself but the Celtics won every championship but one till I was
10 years old - very spoiled:halo: The 1986 Celtics arguably were the best basketball team I've ever seen:D

I'm guessing Wayne is on vacation - the odds of him trembling before playing us are quite remote:halo:
I think Wayne sometimes gets in over his head with too many CM games going at once and has little time left for chess.

I think he needs to get his priorities straight! :D ;)

Okay, I got in touch with Wayne and he has resigned all his games. Thus, the final results are:



and



As you can see, there now exists a tie between Foggy and KC for third place! Do you guys want to have a play off for the bronze? If you do, let me know and I'll assign the White pieces randomly.

Bummer - give KC the white in 1 game and let's finish it :)
