There's a very old thread where I posted a picture of a statue. Should I do it again?

Thought I remembered that one. You live near the shrine. If you've got the picture handy, I wouldn't mind seeing it again.

I don't have the picture handy. It was just a link, anyway.

Maybe when Spring comes I'll get my picture taken with the statue.

Gauss is...by far...the pride of the university here. Lots of Nobel prize winners, but the University of Chicago has more. Smile

Goettingen had Gauss.

Lobo, what of Ali and Tyson? I don't know much about the sweet sport, but it seems Ali could move and tyson packed a Mack truck.


They'd be up there. Really hard to say what Ali would have been in his prime without the 3 1/2 years he lost for his refusal to be inducted into the armed services. But he lost to Frazier the first time, and had his hands full the other two times. Tyson, also, seemed invincible (until Douglas vinced him). Robinson, as a welterweight, and Duran as a lightweight...the battle among the rest of the world -- for second best -- was never as clear. They weren't just better than everyone else; they were a full class above. There was probably a bigger gap between #1 and #2 than between #2 and #10, in their cases.

Heh heh. I'd probably make it Hamman, or Belladonna, but he'd be right up there on a short, short list. Major props to you, and R.I.P. to Paul.

I'd add Garozzo and Meckwell to the best-players list, but using masterpoints as the yardstick, it has to be Soloway.

I meant both for poker and gin rummy. But yup...3 main event WSOP wins (and 3 wins at Amarillo Slim's Super Bowl of Poker; I believe nobody else won both events even once each).

Put Geir Helgemo on the short list, too. Yup, Soloway for masterpoints, but he'll soon be third.
