I think I had given up on TotP by then. The ITV chart show was a por imitation, if you asks me. Ringbark said that your LJ was a good one, so I dropeed in. I make him right.

Welcome!

Currently I'm watching the Corus chess tournament on the Internet Chess Club at the moment; I'm nowhere near expert enough to follow the games myself, but the annotation that observers provide really helps. Mickey Adams is a pawn down in a RPP-RP ending; apparently it's a draw in theory but white has practical chances. It was RBPP-RBP earlier but apparently taking off the bishops simplifies it considerably for black. Fingers crossed...

There's also a fascinating endgame in Svidler-Anand - Svidler has Q and 5 pawns, Anand Q and 4. They're just about into the seventh and final hour; Anand has about 15 minutes less, but is known as a fine rapid player. This one could go the distance and be a real bruiser.
