Ponderous Hippo

We are all very proud of the imprimateur of NM Peter Radomsky (click red for web-link), who very kindly prepared the game record ready for publicaton at our blog. Peter ranks 415th out of 46,161 USCF members nationally, or an even more impressive figure, ranking 15th out of 815 rated players in the state of New Jersey. Notice how he demonishes his opponent, Candidate Master Lev Zilbermintz, who while also very much at times a most forminable force, falls ill to Peter by his preturnatural yearning for the idiosyncratic!

Since this game stands on its owns so well, we will wait a few days till we furnish Peters second game, equally impressively and therefore shown seperately.

[Peter wishes to correct the error in our recent post, 'Next Up, and Spring Results'. He did not win his section in its entirety, but tied with Juan for 1st. Now let us also extend our congratulations to Juan also! Thank you Peter.]
