I just wish p...

Re: The explanation is simple: The myth would come to an end

I agree about GM Tang being a good sport. Indeed, it was nice to watch him obviously having fun while trying to get a win off Leela. While watching Tang play without even coming close to losing his cool and whose ego appeared to remain intact while losing multiple games, I couldn't help but think ab...
