    Yeah Nyzhnyk carries around a teddy bear with him when he gives simuls. Lose to that.

    Sorry, but Nicky is a USCF master, but not a Fide master. Still mighty impressive, though.

    Yep, I'd heard that also. I don't mind getting beaten by kids - It happens to me all the time. But darned if I'm gonna let myself get beaten by a kid carrying around a teddy bear. That's just sick!

    Video proof of the teddy:

    like most prodigy's he'll probably fall off when he's older. probaby plateau at a point here soon, from their he won't get to much better.

    Very few keep improving beyond a certain age (untill they're much older)

    Yeah, like the way Magnus Carlsen is plateauing?

    Maybe Eric Schiller's been reading too many of his own books.

    Game 2 was particularly awful.
