2011-11-23 19:00:04LowScore1575and going steady at 1750 for the past 3 years...amazing. 
2013-10-11 19:42:38Bisonratte1501went wrong, although the first move was okay. when i saw the solution, i didnt know who is better. 
2014-03-14 17:30:55LowScore1575this problem has been sticking to its rating for more than 5 years now, and it's certainly seen many tacticians come and go. This talk of "too high" or "too low" is complete nonsense!
