GM Rogers on Comeback?

Courtesy of Peter Parr's latest column I've just now learnt that GM Ian Rogers saw OTB combat last month in the 22nd Mohd Badshah Memorial Open Chess Championships in Fiji. He finished the event with a perfect score.

As far as I know this is Rogers' first serious action since he announced his retirement nearly 2 years ago at the Lidums Checkmate Open. So, is GM Rogers making a comeback? We'll have to ask him tomorrow.

As a matter of fact, GM Rogers' appearance in that Fiji competition was an exhibition only. He is not making a comeback.
