  perfidious: In the first round of this U-2400 section, Judith was Black vs an old clubmate from my Boston days, Alex Cherniack, and he played his favourite 5.f3 in this opening; I recall being amazed at this little girl with a teddy bear alongside, methodically taking White's game apart.
Jan-16-09  WhiteRook48: a toy elephant wins. Hmmm.
