    Wanted: a capybara!

    As for the tournament itself, the Jaguar and Domagoj Dragicevic are probably equal favourites at the moment.... But Dom might want it a bit more because he is right up in the top few in the MCC Grand Prix. The Jaguar is way down the list, having missed at least one of the tournaments...

    Yes, you could tell that the jaguar was calculating well whilst stalking, but then his technique was atrocious later on. It took him until the 5 and a half minute mark of a 6 minute game / youtube video to actually do something decisive and of course the Capybara got away with a draw... There is a fine line between building up a position and procrastinating...

    Ive got a dark horse!

    I live in the southern part of Brunswick - pretty close to Melbourne zoo and I often take my little sons there for a walk around... When we were there today we found a contender - the Brazilian Agouti! He might be small, but Im telliing you, he looked pumped and ready to go! Rumaging around his enclosure - ready to have a crack at taking out the top prize!

    Ive actually heard that he drew with both Karl Zelesco and Justin Tan over in Brazil - so some of these players had better watch out... Domagoj and The Jaguar may have him covered, but there wont be too many others who would consider themselves a shoe in against him!

    Paul, do you have a photo of him in action by any chance? Or a youtube video or something?

    Get your money on the Brazilian Agouti! He is paying $15 - 1!
