As Sylvester is listed on the Fide list for Hungary, we already have 3 countries represented in the event. Likely participation of Dizdarevic and Nam will bring number of countries up to 5. :)

Surprized to see that Nam did not win on board 5 in rd 3. When I was at the club and watching the games, his position appeared to be totally winning

Why are some players given 3 half points Byes. As per the tournament details, only 2 half points were allowed.

Wow, 3 byes in 4 rounds beats my 'record'' of 3 byes in 6 rounds :). Or well, there is always next time - I will be back in contention :)

Do i win something even though i came 2nd in the brilliancy prize? And for all those of you that are wondering, no my parents are not humongous fans that they decided to name me after Ridley Scott, my dad just thought it was a cool sounding name.

Hey Sir Ridley:)

Second in the brilliancy prize is only an honorary mention at the moment, but well done and keep trying. Gotta be in it to win it!

Kudos to long-time member Tom Kalisch too, I've always liked his style and the attacking ideas he comes up with.

The Tom Kalisch game was pretty interesting.

My score was the same as the last time I played in this event, though then there was a Morris and a Baron in it.
