Re: live tournament
bizarre ...
 
Thorny attempted a Nimzo, which quickly went south. But somewhere in the 13th move, the timer for Caissa farked something up, and he was not allowed to input his move (or rather, he input it, but it didn't show on my screen.) He took the resignation when it timed out and declared me winner, though it feels a hollow victory. While I had an advantage, the game was not yet over.
 
Here's the game:

 
I'd play you again, Thorny ... if not a brilliant game (by either of us) it was at least entertaining. :)

ps -- after actually viewing the game, it does show that Thorn had moved the N as he revealed in the chat. Why his timer kept counting down is completely unknown. Would like to have finished that game.
