Thanks for that, Burgo, and the explanations on the phone, and sorry for post #2 which was a little shirtier than intended.

And congratulations for assembling a top-class field again - almost as good as 2008.

P.S. You might want to rethink your line-to-content ratio.

Not yet recorded on the score table is the drawn game result between Illingworth and Rej as reported in my Sydney Morning Herald column on 13 June.

The game between the top two seeds Smirnov v Xie scheduled for 24 May has not yet been played as at 12 July – Strange but true!

The players have not yet been advised if Berezin (Ukraine 2370) is eligible for the title on residential grounds. A firm decision before round 1 is essential to avoid the problems of the 1972 joint winners!

The leading scores appeared in yesterday’s SMH (http://www.chessdiscountsales.com/news/newsindex.htm).


Illingworth 6.5/8, Smirnov 3/5, Berezin and Xie 4/6

Round 8 is tonight.

Congratulations to Max on fiishing the NSW champs on 7/9 and at least sharing the first place. The interim calculation of Max FIDE rating is 2415. It makes him highly likely to be on the next Australian Olympic team. :clap: :clap: :clap:

3 from NSW, one from overseas, the last spot? Maybe Victorian, maybe not. :lol:

It looks like that means Max is at least equal first with George (if George can beat both Vlad S and Victor) or else outright first. Well done Max.

So what's the latest? Can George and Vlad S not be persuaded to play before the last round on Tuesday?

They've have had the entire length of the tournament to arrange it, after all.
