Pairing should be fixed on Chess24 and delay active.
The names should hopefully fix itself.

Well done, a real credit to the unnamed player with the White pieces!

The steamroller could have been launched a move earlier with 15.b6. 21.Bb5+ had a cute épaulette mate idea of 21... Qxb5 22. Qc7, but all the same, bringing the R into the game with 21. Ra3 was even stronger.

For those wondering about the results, I can confirm that Aiden Brady came equal first - and that's all I know.

If you click on Lee Whalley's link to Chess 24 above, you can see all the placings there. Aiden Brady did come equal first with Hossein Ghodosi , both on 5/6. Mark Vucak came outright 3rd on 4.5/6. Next on 4/6 were Ken Stark, Ric Menoza and Eddie Ottschoffski. Tony Weller scored 3.5/6. On 3/6 were Craig Stewart, Luka Fon and Lee Whalley. You can see all the other reults on Chess 24.
