  mistermac: I also read "Scoop" by Waugh, and it too is a hoot. (Hoot may be a new word for you. It means really absurdly funny).

But, my main reason for writing is to tell you that there is snow and cold in Eastern Australia. It has caused widespread disruption to the main roads. Winter here is never warm, but this is really cold, and miserable.

Pity us, my friend!

  hoodrobin: <Hoot!> This <is> my name, courtesy of the Premium Member <jessicafischerqueen>. Here it is never cold even in winter but now in summer (this year) it is really really hot! No disruption but big discomfort.
Premium Chessgames Member
  mistermac: Well, Hoot, congratulations on being the leader of Team White. It is also a huge responsibility.
Premium Chessgames Member
  hoodrobin: <mm> Yes I know, I'm well aware of that!
Dec-25-15  WinKing: Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays <hoodrobin>! :)
Dec-25-15  wordfunph: <hoodrobin> Merry Christmas!

  mistermac: Well, Hoot, congratulations on the deaw.
Premium Chessgames Member
  hoodrobin: Hey <mac>! Team Black played very well.
Premium Chessgames Member
  mistermac: You asked in a post to my forum my opinion on Magnus Carlsen.

I have to say that, in terms of technical ability, I feel he is not all that far ahead of other Super GM's.

Where, however, he shines is in his enormous competitive spirit, determination, and stamina.

Those qualities may well see him stay at the top for a long time, and anyone who might best him, will find that Magnus would come back even harder to attempt retake the title later.

The coming match could be very interesting. But, Magnus has to be favorite to retain his title.

But, that is all a patzer's opinion. He may indeed turn out to be really great.

Premium Chessgames Member
  hoodrobin: Thanks for sharing.
I can't see for now any serious competitor, and that's all I can say. Karjakin? We'll see. I think Anand was really great.
Premium Chessgames Member
  mistermac: Have a beer, Hoody.


Premium Chessgames Member
  mistermac: What do you think of the match?

It has been quite interesting, even the draws.

Premium Chessgames Member
  hoodrobin: Just read your post(s) <mistermac>. Prosit! The match showed that Carlsen was always in control imo. Happy holidays to you!
Premium Chessgames Member
  mistermac: Thanks, hoody. I am not currently a paying member, so I presume all teaces of my Forum havd gone.

I may resume if i can be persuaded of its usefulness to me.

Premium Chessgames Member
  hoodrobin: It is useful to us! But you can post as a normal (not premium) member. Always <welcome to my forum>, of course, <mistermac>!

  mistermac: I have returned as a premium member. So, I will be here for a year.

Looks like the next White vs Black match is not yet in planning, and the avaiable GMs wanting to get beaten pool has dried up.

Premium Chessgames Member
  mistermac: We are in opposite teams, I see.
