There was a festival, but we played not well

We decided to took part at the yearly blitz tournament with the control 5+1. Grandmasters Popov and Lugovoi, international masters Novik and Martynov and your constant commentator showed average results. Dozens of grandmasters took part in the event, including sufferers of the KO Championship Volkov, Matveeva and others. Still, they did not win as well. One of the winners is hidden under the handle Sapog. Another one has a super high rating over 3200. Even newest computer programs cannot reach this figure. We drank a sea of coffee and ran sprint because of bad connection. That is, we had to run from site computers to computers of the neighbouring night restaurant. Nevertheless, I dont want to explain our poor achievements with these adventures only. At last, the struggle is the most important thing.

Play on the ICC. Its interesting, though dangerous. Time elapses insensibly. Its just a new sort of drug.
