    I fear I may have opened the flood gates on strange openings.
    I bet now I get sent dozens of games from all over the world.

    Ah well...

    I wonder if Korch really is a coal miner?

    You have to read the "Korch's Korner" section in the article that greenpawn linked to.

    Yes, I had read it. And I still don't

    And let me ask a question please (sorry for an off top). If I'm not a subscriber, can I set up opponents' ratings' diapason when creating an open seek? Looks like I cannot.

    click on the 'advanced options' and the min/max rating fields will become visible.

    I think you can do it after you stop being provisional, but don't treat that as reliable information.

    Why did you tell them my real profession?

    Ha, the Goose opening! I've seen a lot of weird openings around here (and I'm too conservative to try them out, except the Hammerschlag) but not this one.

    How could you forgot that I have beaten you in blitz so many times?

    P.S. Magnus Carslen is good example of your ability to evaluate someones chess strenght.

    Thanks, that's probably how it works. Cause "advanced options" are locked for me so far...

    Hi Korch, It's 22:45 here in Scotland.
    Your shift down the mines starts soon and I still have not got
    my double Rook sac.

    Will send latest CHESS magazine anywhere in the world
    if you supply game.

    He's just a patzer who has been lucky. And remember, he's still only 2nd in the live rating list. What's so special about that? (Edit: Oh, I just noticed he has dropped to 3rd. Definitely a patzer!)
