Sep-06-04  Knight13: This guy is a sicilian Genius.
Sep-06-04  Calchexas: Heh, love his record.


Now, if only his rating were 2455...

Sep-06-04  Knight13: I guess this guy only play with people near his rating.
Sep-06-04  Giancarlo: Some one explain to me the formula: If he has 55 wins and 110 total games that were not won, how does that make his winning percentage 50%? Am I reading the formula wrong? Seems to me 55 wins + 55 draws=110/165 right?
Sep-06-04  Shadout Mapes: It would be (55 wins + 55 draws / 2) / 165
May-16-05  soberknight: Slobodan Martinovic never played Goran Milosevic. Oh well.
Jul-25-05  Knight13: Happy Birthday to Slobodan Martinovic!
