********************************************************************* What will GM Susan Polgar be involved in next, I ask you? And - you read it here first - that wily rascal Phil Innes a/k/a The Parrot over at has publicly declared (although not in so many words), that he has competing interests to Polgar's vis a vis certain Japanese business interests and therefore is he "distancing himself" from America's sole female GM. Is a competitor SUPER COMPUTER about to be unveiled - one designed with input from the nearly IM Innes? Stay tuned! LOL! I darn near peed my pants laughing. This one is MUCH better than last year's April Fools Announcement. Good job, GM Polgar and Phil!
