Sep-25-08  Woody Wood Pusher: Karpov crumbled the Berlin Wall here, if only GK could have done the same...
Sep-25-08  Petrosianic: Both hands on the keyboard, Woody. When even Karpov games start giving you a woody for Kramnik, it's time for some saltpeter.

  fredthebear: Was it the saltpeter?

Woody made 6,000+ posts in less than a year's time (no easy feat), and then collapsed before Kramnik's WC rematch:

Bobby Fischer (1943-2008) left the world that same year. Anthony Miles passed early (1955-2001).

Long, long-time members Gypsy and Petrosianic live on!
