Congratulations to IM Brodie McClymont, winner of the 2015 August Open. He drew with fellow IM Moulthun Ly in the final round to secure outright first, but was slightly fortunate to survive that game. Moulthun shared second place with IM Paul Garbett, who dropped in to play the tournament while on holiday from New Zealand!
The first rating group was shared by David Liu, Michael Ostapenko and Mark Stokes, while Matthew Pollard, with his new ACF rating of 193, won the second rating group outright, gaining some 1300+ point upsets in the process...
Thanks to Gail Young and the QWCL for organising the tournament, the players for attending (special mention to the juniors who were playing in their first open tournament), and Mark Stokes for securing the venue.

Congrats to "The White Caviar" for winning yet another Queensland WeekEnder outright! Brodie had a half point lead over Moulthun as they played their crucial last round encounter, so Moulthun needed a win to win the tournament whilst Brodie needed just a draw. Moulthun had White, started with 1d4, and a Kings Indian was soon on the board. Moulthun had a big attack on Brodie's King BUT Brodie was a piece up. In the end Moluthun conceded a perpetual check draw to Brodie, which was all Brodie needed to take the First Prize all by himself. Moulthun had to be content with a share of equal second with friendly visiting New Zealand IM Paul Garbett.

The amazing score of 4 points by Year 10 Saint Patrick's Shorncliffe student Matthew Pollard showed that his rating of 193 is way way off his actual playing strength. Matthew easily won the Under 1000 Rating Group prize and in fact his score would have also won the Under 1600 Rating Group all by himself! Congrats Matthew!

This tournament was sponsored by The Queensland Womens' Chess League and Gail Young in particular deserves a big thank-you for getting this event organized and run. Michael D'Arcy did a superb job as Arbiter once again and his up to date knowledge of the rules and friendly reminders to players to be aware of recent rule changes was well received by all the players.

We now all look forward to The Queensland Open in Bundaberg on Saturday August 22 and Sunday August 23. It has a great prize fund for all players so do not miss it!

Can anyone please tell me how to convert pgn to interactive games for my blog that I am trying to set up?

You will probably need to install a chess game player module in your blog software. The chess player used here was written by the site owner but blog software like Wordpress have modules for chess game viewing. I've never set it up so while I know they exist but I don't know how well they work. If you happen to be using Wordpress then this one might be of use

https://wordpress.org/plugins/chess-game-viewer-control-panel/

But there are probably other options too.
