Currently on but I didn't make the trip up this time (first Burnie weekender I've missed in c.12 years) as a result of clashes with a large number of other things I wanted to do. (I have a lot of these clashes, and often miss a lot of other things to play chess, but sometimes the other things win.)

29 players which is a very encouraging size of field. 14 juniors. 4 players playing first rated games (I think). Top seeds Dowden 2011 Frame 1794 Dyer 1738.

Was not there. Have seen nothing on unofficial BCC website, nothing on ACF Grand Prix website and nothing in my inbox as yet.

I have heard the following:

5.5/6 Tony Dowden
5 Alastair Dyer
4.5 Russell Horton, Tom Krasnicki

Tom Krasnicki (UNR adult) got the bye in the first round and subsequently drew with Dowden and defeated Nigel Frame. His only loss was to Dyer.

Dowden defeated Dyer.

I have also heard that Hobart junior Jamie Briant (1041) defeated Phil Donnelly (1600!!) :owned: :owned: :owned:

I've heard Dowden's draw with Tom Krasnicki was in the final round with Dowden only needing that for outright first.
