    Hmmmm......what's the catch?

    But I'd like to thank everyone else. Yes everyone.

    It would be pretty boring if I had nobody to talk to.

    I would also like to thank greenpawn for his fantastic input, SwissGambit for his insanely hard and annoying puzzles and anyone with the word 'Rook' in their username.

    Oh! I would also like to thank Gruve, Sever, swagmonger and USArmyParatrooper for being excellent Chess gaming partners.

    If anyone is looking for a fun and challenging game, definitely choose these guys 😀

    On the subject of GP- I only recently stumbled onto his youtube piece about the Opera Game. Simply brilliant, I find myself saying things like -

    "and he just snapped it off, snapped if off!"

    Really we should be thanking that unknown group of Spanish Nobles
    who took the game and jazzed it up by increasing the powers of the
    Queen and the Bishop in the ealry 1400's.

    Without them I doubt chess would have caught on like it has and none of
    us would ever know each other.

    I cannot imagine what my lfe would have turned out like without chess.
    It's not something I did and do in my spare time.

    Getting got married, having kids and working......these are the hobbies.
