(11:56:01 PM) Cynthia: ahhh stampede of old guys!
(11:56:02 PM) Me: this is what you have gotten yourself into, Hikaru
(11:56:41 PM) Cynthia: imagine if he didn't go to that class and didn't even know these simple things yet
(11:56:43 PM) Me: Hikaru is still treating this like just a game
(11:57:32 PM) Cynthia: wow
(11:58:53 PM) Me: BAM
(11:59:08 PM) Cynthia: ohhh the dramatic music
(11:59:29 PM) Me: I'm glad they stop with the lengthy board shots later
(6/14/2011 12:00:33 AM) Me: I like that flip of his wrist when he picks up the first captured stone
(12:01:00 AM) Me: I'm pretty sure that clock has been stuck at that time since last episode
