Yesterday was a good day for me. Didn't lose a game in the major. But I admit, the draw against Sally Yu was unimpressive. Later that evening, I did win a prize in blitz - $25 for the U1800 section. Good enough to win my money back plus a little interest.
A popular past-ime here is chatting about politics. The names Bill Gletsos and Garry Wastell punctuate our conversations. Popular blokes those two. From one account, at least, chess in Victoria is a near disaster. But that might be stretching it a bit. Who knows?
