    And being now 11 points higher than Caesar salad, it looks like it will be a while before anyone dethrones her.

    What's interesting is that she is #1 highest rated despite resigning numerous games vs much lower rated players.
    Presumably if she'd played & beaten them, GM Michelle's rating would by much higher still!

    Don't worry. There is no GM Michelle according to FIDE.

    Maybe its spelled different? I only checked Michelle. No titled players at all with that name. And the Fide list includes inactive players.

    There are plenty of Michaels though right?

    Trying to wait for a mistake. It was pawn gridlock if white makes no mistakes which he didn't. Total draw.

    Caissad4 is a chick, i am playing her at the moment, I have one loss and one draw to her. I think she said that next time she would play blindfold to give me a chance. Lol, she's awesome, but prefers quite positional play, to sharp, double edged positions. Do i think that i can beat her tactically? Nope, but its a better to die quickly than slowly be strangled! Soooo theoretically, if I can draw with Caissa , and Caissa can draw with Skeety, i should also be able to draw with Skeety? Is it not the case?
