Well, this devout believer must have been blessed by his Creator for he has just won the 2006 Coffs Harbour Open played over the weekend. Xie topped the event on 6.5 points out of 7 rounds. His run included a win over visiting grandmaster Dejan Antic.
Black lost on time.
Of note also was the performance of Sydney junior Max Illingworth. He collected 5.5 points, including a draw also against Dejan Antic.
