The white pieces did not do well in the first round.

So I can't beat a 1200 in Hales Corners, but I can hold Kirsan Ilyumzhinov to a draw in blitz...well OK then...

Who is Keyser Soze (Kirsan Ilyumzhinov)? And what does it have to do with Hales Corners?

Chris said...

Kirsan is the president of FIDE and it's me being amazed that I can't hold off a 1200, but I can hold off a former ntional champion of his home country.

However, in a truly ironic twist (for fans of the Usual Suspects) I played Kirsan in Skokie...
