Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-23-13  waustad: It is a pleasure having him do the commentary for the Vienna Open today. He is much easier to understand than any of the others who have been on. He sounds Austrian but he speaks clearly and slowly enough that I have a chance to understand. The others they've had might be fine for native speakers, but I'm not even close.
