    Also, there is no longer any active player above 2400.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I can't imagine anything more pathetic than cheating at chess on the internet.

    Big Ron has dropped off due to inactivity.

    Skeeter is third....Jesus Wept 😉

    Be good to have a No1 that actually posts in the chess forum.

    Go Skeets.

    You are joking? Right?
    Tell me you are joking.
    You´ve got to be joking.

    Oh my Zeus you are not joking.

    (Look at Capa Preta´s opponent who resigned his last two games. The last one just yesterday)

    There's a reason to always challenge the top guys on the site at the slowest possible time control!

    If you drag it out long enough, they could get banned!

    * No offence to the new top player was intended. I have not looked at his/her games and am not making any insinuations.

    I always like looking through banned players game to see their losses. In this case I actually feel a bit sorry for Mariska Angela:
    Game 7772470
    She was going to win this one. I can feel it.

    The final position is absolutely delicious!

    Edit: I have to have that position on a blitz game. I just have!

    And it is a beautiful game, too. The white side reminded me of Larsen, which is a great tribute to the late GM and patron saint of all chess free-thinkers.

    Both players cannot move.
    One has to wait for the other to move.

    Eventually a skull will appear and there will be nobody there to click it.

    I don't know how long the skull remains. I would have thought it stays forever.
