John Donaldson is a class act! One little story about him: He took a photo of me competing (on the bottom boards!) in the 1978 World Junior in Graz - he was Yasser Seirawan's second - and then later sent it to me by post across the other side of the world when he absolutely didn't have to.

That shirt Fabiano is wearing at 2:52 made me laugh

Seems like an interesting shirt to wear in a crucial last round game....Where can I get one? ;-)
