Nice game Greg. It's the first game I can remember you losing. That game goes to show that for all the pressure you have aimed at the enemy king, if you dont freak out and play calmly you can defend these type positions. I'm not saying that he was better than you or anything (nor am I taking anything away from him), but not knowing the time situation has got to factor in on your mind too.

Interesting game, Greg. I appreciate your willingness to make speculative sacrifices. It makes for very exciting chess.

What an arrogant guy btw... why is he telling you, an IM, something you play is bs, when he's only 2100??? Shame you couldn't finish him off, better luck next time!

Oh and you're definately one of my fav Americans. Atleast you have any clue about the mass murder your country is committing and THINK about some of the other issues.

26.Rg3! was interesting like the computer says. Would like to add though that 26...Bg5 is answered with 27.h4 according to the computer as 27.Qxh6 loses to the counter 27.Qxg3!

And what a big jerkoff...scores a rare win and says "bullshitzky attack" what an arrogant prick....at least have some rating to back up your arrogant god damnit! It was not more "bullshitzky" than 26.Rg3 practically winning, LOL.

I like the game very much too it was very nice to follow..And I like that you try to play entertaining chess for us..=)

And RAU4ever..I do not think your comment about mass murder is suiting. If nobody fought back then there would not be any deaths right? And you are forgetting about the suppression that Saddam had against his people and all the people who died during his wars (over a million people) and the same thing with Afghanistan.

I think it is a poor decision given the circumstances but it is right in a way too. If the support was there from the world then I think there would come something good from it. Now there are just too much politics and such.

Sorry for not a chess related response but it was deserved..=)

I agree that was totally uncalled for (especially in blitz where no one can calculate everything), but let's not forget that 2100 even on ICC 5 0 is a very high level. It's only because we're lucky enough to watch Greg play that it seems less impressive. Anyway, I enjoyed the video.

Obviously my opponent is a blistering idiot for his comment after the game, but that was too obvious to even bother talking about.

Google "Iraqi bodycount" please. Your country (I'm presuming your american) killed approximately 1 million Iraqi too, so there isn't that much difference between the big evil dictator and the mighty US, only that Bush can dispose of humas much quicker. Oh and if you invade, they aren't allowed to defend their own country? If firefighters fight fire, what do your freedomfighters fight? Anyway, it's electionday (of the world, only a few percentage is allowed to vote however...), so please forgive me for showing my anti-american sentiment. Just note that it's the way the rest of the world sees you. I do take responisibility for my excessive radical language, that was/is unnecessary.

p.s. If you're all voting for Mc Cain, we'll bomb you. No pressure!

A million may have died but the us didn't kill them all. You seem to forget about the anti-freedom fighters and terrorists that plant bombs in markets, schoolyards and on busy streets, and lets not forget the suicide bombers. You seem to forget that Iraq violated many U. N. sanctions and that they posed a threat to the middle eastern countries. They did defend themselves and they lost. Many of the fighters cross the syrian and Iranian borders. The new Iraqi government doesn't want them there and we'll protect them until they can protect themselves. Only a few allowed to vote? You really know nothing about the USA. I don't care that your anti-american. I only care to enlighten others to your idiocy. Nor do I care what the rest of the world thinks.

p.s. I did vote for McCain, but sadly blacks would rather vote for skin color rather than vote on ideas or for someone who will protect them. The worst part is the media ignors this fact and says that race isn't a factor because whites voted for obama. Even worse my state now has to live with all the horrible socialists that ruined the state because blacks voted the democrate party line.

Funny that you use the word "idiocy" when you go on a rant assuming black people only vote for Obama because he is black too. Did you ever consider that perhaps these people too thought that Obama would in fact be the better president?

There is no way that the US killed 1 million people nor that the US is responsible for it either. It is always the person behind the gun or whatever he is using that is responsible for a killing. So I agree with previous poster.

And btw..I am from Sweden..=) and the media here is so subjected and against everything that the US stands for and they only write and show what they want to show to get their beliefs out to the public. It actually makes me sick and I really wonder why people do not see through all those things and get a broader picture of things...

Its hard to consider that when 95% of them voted for obama, I find it hard to believe that 95% of a voter group would pick someone because of there ideas. Kind of a statisical improbality. So, there must be something else that made the most of them vote that way. Also, I didn't say all blacks voted on skin color just that most of them did and that those who did just voted the party line which put people back into power that shouldn't be. And number two: I don't think that what i said was much of a rant; more of a wish that blacks would vote for ideas so that my region would get better. I don't really care that they voted for obama its the state races that concern me.

Although Blacks are predominantly democratic, it's likely that many voted for him as a symbol of how far we've come in terms of civil rights and what's possible in America. It's not so much about skin color as it is the idea of making history. In fact, the numbers were fairly close when it was between Hillary and Obama but Obama looked like a distant probability. In any case, Obama won and won by a big margin with more than twice the electoral votes and a 5% lead in the popular vote. The Black vote helped him but did not decide the election. Most people, including myself, considered him the better choice for the current situation.

Median household income in 2007 (According to http://www.census.gov/prod/2008pubs/p60-235.pdf ) : $50,233
Median African-American household income in 2007 : $33,916.

Find a statistically significant group of Whites with a median household income of $33k who voted predominantly for McCain, and we'll start believing your racist "but the dumb blacks did it!" hypothesis.
