It's a reference to the movie Troy. After Achilles easily slays the best soldier from an opposing army, he arrogantly shouts "Is there no one else?!?""Is there anybody else?"

I dont get the joke, but, i just won a game ... :-O

Reminds me of Lurker. That man was born to end [chess] lives.

Here is a rare photo of Steve wearing his gear at a chess tourney:

LOL!

Congrats on the chess victory! Be sure to send me the PGN so I can record it!

Someone must have taken that picture when I was unaware.

Is that your "gimp" suit?Someone must have taken that picture when I was unaware.

If I knew what a gimp suit was I would answer you.Is that your "gimp" suit?

There is a link called 'View PGN for this game'. Click on it then do a copy and paste to a post. PGN is a file format for some chess databases.

Good game, KC. It was that quiet pawn move (46...f3) that did the trick for me.

I think four of them dropped out, didn't they? Shouldn't we have 10 games and not 9?Here are the standings for the combined rounds (to date):

Yeah, that list includes everyone who signed up for the first round; many of them are no longer playing.I think four of them dropped out, didn't they? Shouldn't we have 10 games and not 9?

We only played one game a piece in round 1 because this was going to be at least a three round tourney. However, with all the drop-outs, we just did a final eight game round robin. Altogether, we will have played 9 games apiece.

Ah yes, forgot this I did.We only played one game a piece in round 1 because this was going to be at least a three round tourney.
