I like Gusti. He seems like someone who'd be fun to hang out with--intelligent, articulate, playful, and a nice guy.

What's going on? Didn't they shut the door? It's getting Gusti in the playing hall!

It is great that Peter has arrived in Dortmund because we have been starving for his outstanding videos have started. Please get an interview with Mamedyarov. I heard that he really entertained at the blitz on Thursday. Gustaffson is a really good speaker. Thanks Peter.

Thanks for the video Peter!
Strong combination of content, form, imagery and sound.
Indeed Gustafsson is talkative, how nice to see and hear that.
Good luck with the rest of the rounds.
