Another slow week for TCG that one. Well, being busy at work didn't help either. But our post on Peter Parr's chess by the beach did hit a few nerves and discussion is going hot. Please post your comments there.
A number of Australians are in action overseas. There's the trio in Aeroflot: Smerdon, Weeks and Attwood. Latest news is that IM Smerdon has drawn his final round game against GM Ahmed Adly of Egypt for a total point tally of 4.5 points. FM Manuel Weeks didn't really have a tournament to remember. He lost his last game to fellow FIDE master Ishaq Ahmed (2120) and ends his stint there on the miserable 2 points. And in the C section, James Attwood outpointed his compatriots to finish on 5 points overall.
Over in France IM Alexander Wohl is now in joint lead, on 5 points, after six games of the FIJ Open. Pinoy player IM Joseph Sanchez is also up there on a similar score.
Finally, I'm all set for tomorrow's City o Sydney. No prep, no nothing! I'm just going to turn up. Actually, I just hope I can avoid the drink tonight - else, there's no way I could drag myself early enough to travel all the way to North Sydney.
Have a good weekend everybody.
