  1. oh yeah i was on the when this match took place and it seems mignus proved to be a bit better than Sunils Sun in the fast chess, actually i wuz kinda surprised by the easy in which he won the match. I guess ur right Daaim seemed like a good warm up match of whats to come. OH one more thought, naka doesnt study chessbooks and Mignus does or has had some training from someone who has that seems to be the biggest difference in the match from an ULTRMODERN point of view, dunno, Adia , tricktalkin Bufflalonians yall got anything to say now, drummas they eerily quiet nowadays around these parts after all them years of gm talkin, they funny ,lol , DO DA WORK!!!!! ULTRAMODERNIST.

  2. I think I read somewhere, Naka remark that he was at his best at bullet or speed chess when he was around 18. It’s like saying it’s rigged before it’s over!(lol)
