Congrats Jesse!

Pinoy visitor, FM Jesse Sales, has won his second Australian event - the ANU Open, in Canberra. He finished on 6.5/7, a half point ahead of FM Bjelobrk. Their respective placings here are the reverse of last weekend's Fairfield Winter Cup.

Three weeks ago, FM Sales was also victorious at the Australian Masters tournament in Melbourne. That win earned him his first ever IM norm. Watch this space for annotated games by FM Sales himself!

I gotta say that jesse worked hard for that tournament win. He studied hard to beat Bjelobrk. His enthusiasm for chess has inspired me even!
