I had a look as well. Logged in spot on to see a game of Kurt, playing the Sveshnikov Sicilian with Black - as I do in real life :D

Good job that you offer broadcasts recently.

Well it's no real hassle on my part providing these live broadcasts. I just wish that more enthusiasts had the technical know-how to use TLCV and join those already there.

Maybe you could write up a short howto to encourage other testers.

I enjoy kibitzing at Oliviers tourney, for example. There's always a nice chat to be had.
