Hi, when will the draw/schedule for Monday night come out?

Hi FW, Assuming you have entered, Round 1 draw will be out tomorrow night approx. 7pm after entries have closed and the tournament has been 'organised'. Subsequent round pairings/draws will be released here on chess chat by the arbiter Alexei Wed/Thur if i'm not mistaken. Look forward to seeing you there.

Just a small correction, James played 8.a3 against me, not A4 as the above interface has it.

Thanks - this has been changed. Not sure what happened with DGT transmission as 8.a4 was the move recorded.

Quick Announcement.
MCC will provide free hand sanitiser and hand wipes for players starting round 3.

HAHAHAHA

Knights on h5 and a5 was probably not a very good idea for black in Lim-Yang...

Bf5-Bd7 and Na5 seemed to give a lead in development which was transformed into an initiative (down the g file.)
In other words e6,Be7 (d6) and Bd7 (without Na5 and Bf5) followed by 0-0
But psychologically I know the sigh from black after move 3. ;)

Thanks for the update. Heard rumour that the club was going to stop competition due to the COVID-19.

Round 6 is proceeding but yes the Club will temporarily close after that.

See statement from MCC linked to in another Chesschat thread - http://www.chesschat.org/showthread.php?15037-M-C-C-Announcements&p=463282&viewfull=1#post463282

A difficult decision but there is not much the MCC could do

Given that much larger events (Doebrl etc) are still not cancelled, MCC had options...but understandable decision indeed.

Any word on the pairings at this point? Was hoping to potentially rearrange my last game, or at least start it earlier with my opponent, but that's not going to be possible now :(
