    OK, I admit it, I've based my whole chess career on yours. Now where's my rating points?

    By the way, I picked up "Streetfighting Chess" this week on the strength of your review, greenpawn, and it's an excellent piece of work. Cheers for that too!

    I was looking for it (at the London Chess Centre) but they must have sold out! It's getting bought when I get paid, or tonight when I win the lottery. I'm in Scotland at the end of the week. I presume it's stocked in every bookshop, newsagents and greengrocer's up there?

    Rampant what? never heard of it ; )

    By the way Greenpawn, did you know that Elisabeth Paehtz has a signed copy of Streetfighting Chess? It's true : ) [Unfortunately she also has a boyfriend who is a Grandmaster : ( Oh well, she probably snores anyway]

    Hope you enjoy the book hunterknox! Any feedback is always much appreciated. And DO get Rampant Chess - it's excellent. I read it all in one sitting!
