I was just remembering some of the redhotpawn members that aren't around (for one reason or another) anymore.
tomtom232 ... A really nice guy who had quite a knack for puzzles. Unfortunately, he got into a heated argument (and others chimed in) which ruined his affection for the site.
Korch ... He was one of the superstars of redhotpawn. He hit the point that most of us do (overworked and worn out). I can't help but think he will be back.
Jie ... He was the yin to Korch's yang. Arguments between the two could be seen in virtually every forum. This provided hours of entertainment.
Hum ... The rising star who never lost a game even to banned engines. LOL He never spoke a word to me until I resigned both games on move one in our last match.
SAADGEORGE ... He was actually quite friendly. We agreed to a draw in one game, and he wanted to play it out. Naturally, he beat the pants off me before we called it the draw that we had agreed on earlier.
English Tal ... He RAN the seiges while he was around. We played one game. The funny thing is the opening of our game was in my book as an author vs Chessmaster 4000 test game. He improved !!!
Are there any more exiled/ self exiled players that anyone remembers and misses?
