    This chick is so annoying. I think she may be retarted. Shoot me- these people half the time don't know what they're talking about.

    So the 'champ' gets to go all the way to Italy for a time forfeit 'win'![?] - 'good show!' ... What a 'suck-arse' ending! (besides that missed 'mate-in-one' by Elliot! ... )

    I believe the increment setting [at 5 seconds/move] was way too low for the final event there; perhaps I'm wrong, but I only feel that a chess match shouldn't allow to be resolved as such, but what can you do? - especially when you could've had 'that annoying Jennifer[!]' refereeing the game, 'live'! ...

    And that's the way I see it! ...

    can you just leave it on the chess board? i mean the 2-d one where we, THE VIEWERS, can watch the game?

    Watching them play from an angle that I can not see the board does me no good at all.

    ...playing like this? never.

    And the commentators seem used to soccer games, rather.

    Congratulations Elliott! I can't believe he missed a mate in one but still came back to win.
