    Go Victorians!

    Nice to see Guy West is doing so well!

    Bobby beat brazilian legend (I remember seeing Herman for first time in 1979 Interzonal tournament in my home town Riga ).

    Well done Victorians!

    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Daniel Shen is also doing very well on +2 and inflicting Solo's third loss in a row.

    Good to see that Tony Dowden won his Round 4 game. May many more wins follow this his first one in the event.

    Thanks Jonathan! I feel I've 'warmed up' after my dodgy play in the first two games. But no easy games here - everyone else seems to be massively more prepared.
