Default HOW'S HUMPY DOIN?

Haven't seen any of the good Dr.'s posts lately and I've kind of lost track.
Is Humpy contending for the world championship yet? Just curious.

Humpy Had a big fall.

Hit his head.

Now his big hope is the brilliancy prize in the under 1300 section.

Koneru Humpy is an Indian GM and former World Jr.
Champion. He first came
to my attention when Dr. Jai Maharaj began regularly
posting (some might say
spamming, but I personally don't think a few hundred posts
in all caps is
that offensive) his results on this and other newsgroups. (Google on
"Humpy+chess" or "who the hell cares" and you should get a
decent sampling.)

Looks like Humpy hit a bumpy.

He's got a cool name, though, so I'm rooting for him.


Koneru Humpy is female.

She`s not a "he", she`s a "she".
But she is having a poor result so far in her current tournament (4 losses
out of 4 games, ouch). However, no shame in losing to folks like Dreev.
