When I saw it before the tournament it was zipping along at 200 knps.
This is double what Nimzo does on a P6 200 in my office.

On the playing screen was not the name Hydra, but the name Nimzo. Do you
think the team is divided ?   :)

Chrilly made a special case of pointing out this name to me, and he
marks his PGN output Nimzo 98. Something strange going on ?
