Hi Greg, fun game. For the Nalchik I'd like to see Kasimdzhanov or Svidler amongst the other 'good guys' you mentioned - to see how they start out at least. Looking forward to your coverage.

You may not like his style, but Gata would be my pick to watch.

Ivanchuk of course, I often see interesting and deciding games from him.

And pretty sad to win that way cause you played real good and it would have been nicer to see you continue outplay the guy..=)

The 400th video special, contained 1/3 ranting; 1/3 opinions about GM's; and only at 28:35 the chess match starts. IDK, I guess after waiting some time for this "special video" I was hoping for more. :cry: As always, thanks for the post.
