Another battle of wits. Actually, we played pretty well. There were definitely some small errors, lots of positioning, and we both moved way faster than we needed to. In the end ...
 
Igrupido (1) - Grim (0)
 
He is probably posting the same thing right now. I know it's his privilege to do so, and I'm stealing it ... I'm just so ticked at that last mistake. I went from a clear victory to a solid defeat in one move.

...two and half hour to go...scuffles break out as crowd members jostle for prime viewing sites...the combatants start their pre-match warm up routines...the mind games begin....the old doubts surface ("now how does that en passent work again ?"..."how do I combat 1.e4 ?"..."which one is the Rook?"..."how does the Horse move)...nevermind, the clock is ticking.....

Re: NOVA 2010 MATCHUPS, SCHEDULED GAME TIMES, AND RESULTS
Lets add some more tension. There is a lot hanging on this game; more precisely , a team point is at stake. If you don't know, a team point is infinitely more valuable than a game point in Nova scoring. Gladiator [Gee Dees] already won his game in round 2, and on paper Kastelka is likely to beat Dual Space [GeeDees] when they play, and Doorman [GeeDees] could be too strong for Raptor. What this all means, Spud, is that for the GeeDees to get a team point from this round, you have to win tonights blockbuster. Since the Geedees got a team point from round one, I have no option but to barrack for Albell.

...into the final hour and latebreaking developments raise the stakes...headlines from around world capture the mood..
 
The Times: " Betting ring smashed as Pennine lifts the lid on Team vs Game points scam"
 
The Australian: "Spud claims 'a Dingo ate my Bishop'"
 
The NYT: AlBell identified as third party in Brad Pitt/Angelina Joile split"
 
The Lancet: "Nova officals declare urine tests inconclusive"

I need ALL the help i can get.
Been trying to come up with excuses when i get dragged before my team mates for an explanation of my uselessness.
I did give blood this morning and to be honest..... feel a little weak and shakey!!
