    The MAP race to a million is just a couple weeks away. Just a few weeks ago, Krale had a comfortable lead but Zorro has pulled ahead by 2 thousand moves as of this post. I know this does not mean anything to a lot of members, but to those who do this is a MIND Boggling amount of moves. I have been at RHP since late 02 and I feel I have done nothing but play chess here for the last decade, and I barely have a third of these moves. These guys have to be clocking in a dozen hours day in, day out here to do this.

    Zorro the Fox - 992504 - 7496 to go
    Marko Krale - - 988666 - 11334 to go

    Nobody else is within a bull's roar of these two, and Zorro is the clear favourite with these numbers showing. Is there a prize on offer?

    For 1,000,000 moves there really needs to be a special star.

    Oh, I forgot to say, the subscription price triples when you hit 1m moves.

    Ever seen 'Up in the air'?

    When George Clooney reaches 10 million air miles he gets his own personal hotline to the airline and a visit from the chief pilot.

    It's the least you could do.

    Not comparable situations...this is more like a fixed price "eat all you can" restaurant. So 1 million move players would appear to be a bad thing initially.

    The difference though in this case is that for every move, another player has made a move too in response, so any 1 million move player would have added to the activity on the site in a tremendously positive way over the years.

    I don't think a hotline is required, that is site feedback after all. 😉

    Zorro has the bit between his teeth and is bolting away from the pack. 17003 moves in 19 days, compared to his rival's 9846. Z's at 996062 which gives him less than 4000 moves to go. Looks as if the trophy will be won before the end of September unless he breaks a leg. 🙄

    Dear Fellow RHP players! I just heard a saying from Abraham Lincoln: The chicken is wise creature. She cackles when she lays the egg. I appreciate the support from several RHP players. Like I mentioned before Marko Krale is formidable opponent. At one time, I was ahead by 6,000 moves and he was able to surpass me in no time. So, I am cautious. I thank all of your support and compliments.
