Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-18-05  AlexanderMorphy: i think that Guy West is actually a member of this website!
Oct-18-05  Runemaster: Which member?
Oct-18-05  AlexanderMorphy: well i think he has named himself Guy West :)
Oct-19-05  Runemaster: But according to his profile under that name, Guy West hasn't posted since last year and he only posted a few times anyway, so we can't assume that he's still a member.

I thought you were going to tell us that <Hayton3> was really Guy West or some other scoop like that! But then again, we all know that <Hatin'> is really <WMD> with a New Zealand accent and a bigger thesaurus (just joking, guys).

Oct-19-05  hayton3: I don't think <WMD> would approve of comments regarding the size of his thesaurus.
Oct-20-05  Runemaster: Quite right - let's not get competitive, boys. We all know that size doesn't count.
Oct-20-05  Norman Glaides: I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
Nov-01-05  Guy West: Yes, I am a member. Just haven't been on here for a while :-)

Cheers, Guy.

  IMlday: Hi Guy,
As I recall we played at Islington, 1980, the strongest weekend Swiss I've ever encountered~last event of the British Grand Prix. A game I would have liked to sit in on the post-mortem was G West vs A S Segal, 1982 Forewarned (?) Segal switched to 1.e4 Nf6 against me at Dubai '86. Belated congrats on your IM title! :-)
Dec-05-05  alexandrovm: <Guy West: Yes, I am a member...> it's really great to have you here, see ya...
