  1. Not a bad player, Fischer! Cheers for posting.

  2. Pretty impressive, huh. I used to play the King's Indian due to the solid defense for the King to castle behind, but am only just getting back into it now as a reply to d4 instead of meeting it with d5 and consistently getting myself into trouble :'-D
