I've played in this tournament in the last two years. I can say that I have enjoyed the tournament in both years and am looking to play in it again this year... I would really recommend this tournament and hopefully the numbers will be greater than last year....

Is the tournement near a train station?

Yes, it is very close to Footscray train station, about 3-5 minute walk... I played at this venue last year....

justin tan beats bosko !

840 rating !, what happened in the game??

To be honest, I didn't get to see much of that game, but the little bit I saw, Justin played well... I saw at one stage he was 2 pawns down, but was active so he must have sacrificed them.. I guess he just built up a good position....

I have played justin tan he is much stronger than his rating, it is also probably my nicest looking game.

I have played justin tan he is much stronger than his rating, it is also probably my nicest looking game.
I've played him as well. I ended up being satisfied with a hard fought draw against him in the SIO in April when his rating was 367.
I'd noticed him in Ballarat the month before because he'd had some good results and pushed some much higher rated players (Garry Lycett I seem to remember was saying he was lucky to have won.)

Macavity has kindly tried to explain to me how to post pictures. If it all works, here are some photos taken at the prize-giving.

Mark Salanowski (event organiser, along with Jake Kostrzewa, who was a bit camera-shy), Jamie Kenmure (arbiter), and humble champion, Jesse Sales.

In the other, Mark, Igor, Jamie, Edsil, and Domagoj.

Congratulations due to all winners, and to the tournament organisers.
