A few of us have stayed at the Olympic Hotel before - it is OK. The Town Centre is a short walk - you just have to watch the weather which can get sub-zero a few weeks later!

Patrick's first win vs Ding, Tze How Dilwen (2397) - losing blunder by black 25...a5?? in even position, I can only wonder what on earth he missed.

Probably was not thinking about drawing and wanted to win..and forgot that white too can move...and play a4 and block his pawn on a5 :). It happens.

My opponent asked me for a draw one move ago before he blundered with 25...a4, which I declined. I am guessing he believed his position is hopeless anyway as my knight will be transferred from d2-b3-a5-b7-d6 follow by moving my king to a5. But he made it rather easy for me.
