The "2700 club" list disappeared from Wikipedia, and I have decided to pack it up as well, in protest.

chessya11: Darn. I saw the first two moves, then lost instantly with 18. Qg8 (obviously Kxg8). I thought it was a smothered mate with the knight.

chessya11: <frogbert> And sometime before July, I think Kramnik was 1st (tied with Anand, 1st on tiebreaks), which means we've had 6 different numero unos (official or otherwise) in a very short period of time. Astounding.
