    You guys would make terrible detectives. The bottom entry on his web page might be an indication.

    I hope he sticks around. I enjoy his posts a great deal. I like his playing style.

    I think you are right! But how can I find the date that it was posted? Maybe it was from last years christmas? Ho ho ho.

    Hi Guys.

    Stop worrying, I'm alright.

    400 and out.

    I enjoyed doing it but there was a wee bit of strain trying to 'funny' every weekend.

    Looking forward to a nice rest and this weekend feels like a burdon has just
    been lifted from my shoulders.

    The sad news is I visited the Edinburgh Congress and there is loads of
    good stuff I could have used. But 400 was the limit I set myself.

    If I feel the urge I can always post on here.

    They have asked me to judge the brilliancy prize I'll post the top on here
    and you can guess which one I chose.

    (It will be the one with the most outlandish unsound sacrifice).

    ...but if it turns into a win won't it then be sound?

    Sad day. Been following GP's corner for years.

    Yes sad day, The Corner was great entertainment. Enjoy the free time GP.

    I think that depends on whether the game takes place in a forest or not.

    Updated last Corner with 3 games from the Best Games entry box.

    You should see if you can make the corners into a book...

    I noticed on Chessscotland.com they had a results page up before the congress started. I checked it out and saw I would only get 1/5 so I didn't bother to turn up.


    Did you do the same thing with the best games? You could of spent a few hours in Bells analysing the barmaid rather than those horrible master games:-)
