    Caesare (how do you prnounce that?)

    Has not played a move for 80 days he only got to No.1 spot
    because Skeets and Pawn Riot dropped a few games.

    I think he will vanish from sight after 90 days without a move.

    top players seem to be vanishing all the time, perhaps once you reach the summit, its
    like falling off the ends of the earth and you fall into tartarus where the goddess of
    chaos sends her sea monsters to get you, or worse still, you find out that shes really
    skeeter and youve noised her up and she doesnt find you attractive in the slightest
    meh, who cares, why skeet on thin ice when you can tango!

    This is silly. I'm fed up trying to figure out who is who.
    It has become plainly obvious players are lacking in the naming department.

    New RHP rule No. 158

    From now on when you join RHP you will be allocated a name
    drawn from a massive pool of fictional characters.

    The player will be given a choice of four to choose from.

    The screen will read something like this.

    Choose a nickname.

    1) Foghorn Leghorn
    2) Captain Pugwash
    3) Cut Throat Jake
    4) Magna Carter.

    This will come into effort as from tomorrow.

    I'm way ahead on this one, anyway.

    Dibs on Magna Carter. That cracked me up (Econ/Poly Sci undergrad, I can't help it).

    Boy it seems like not to long ago she was almost at the top of the list, yet not quite there.
    I think it's dedication that gives a player of that caliber an edge over the competition.
    To be sure, some talent must be involved as well.
    Can anyone think of another player who has been able to retake the lead after dropping in the standings?
    How often do we ask ourselves "can I really improve to the point where I'm that good?"
    Can we?
    Honestly?
    Every game is a struggle, but nothing compared to the struggle of improvement.
    Are we at our best when we're winning, or when we do what it takes to win?
    Time and time again I myself have hit personal slumps and have wallowed in the mire.
    So I think that we should take our hats off to Skeeter, who has overcome adversity to yet again reach for the pinnacle!

    No it's not. It's 'Kar-e-saree' which is from the Apache talk.

    Kar-e-saree is Apache for "he who castles King-side."
