I think a lot of people don't realize:
how god awful durr is at chess.
how great curtains actually is (even though he is rusty).
how hard it is for someone at durr's level to even get to the 1200-1400 level (for most people).
how much the clock plays a role in the odds making. ie, greg might be even money against a 1300 down a knight at G60, but a huge favorite at 5 minute blitz chess, and a dead lock at 1 minute chess over the internet.
i think maybe the first few dozen posters didn't realize these things but at this point they're all abundandtly clear - especially the durrrr sucking at chess part.
he has teh gambooool tho.
