Out of curiosity, is this tournament named after the well known variation in the Sicilian Defence? If yes is it a thematic tournament? Cheers and good luck!

If Patrick can get the scoresheet, the game on Board One between International Master Brodie McClymont and FIDE Master Gene Nakauchi would be great to see!

Played like a Pelican B! Tch fit: He could have resigned on move 27 which would have brought me much closer to 2500 acf lost like a patzer :( I have beaten him 9 in a row and lost the last 3 from winning positions 3 times 9 = 27 :) will upload some games soon on my blog (with whining bitch fit annotations) lol still having lots of fun in a tournament that should have more players next time!

Played like a Pelican B! Tch fit: He could have resigned on move 27 which would have brought me much closer to 2500 acf lost like a patzer :( I have beaten him 9 in a row and lost the last 3 from winning positions 3 times 9 = 27 :) will upload some games soon on my blog (with whining bitch fit annotations) lol still having lots of fun in a tournament that should have more players next time!

does anyone have a link to brodie's blog?

Gene wins again! Congrats to him! What an interesting Morra Gambit by Hughston against Brodie too! Loved Elliot Renzies chessic moment photo as well!
Now our attention turns north to Gladstone this coming week-end and Townsville the following week-end, with the August Open in Rothwell and the Queensland Open in Bundaberg also not too far away!
See you in Gladstone!
