    LOL Thanks.

    Fair bit of work to do from here though, with Dusan showing his class yet again to be a whole point ahead of the pack.

    I was starting to psychologically prepare myself to play him next round, but suddenly had a thought that maybe Swissperfect won't want to float me up to a higher score again? I hope that's not the case, as I'd prefer to get a game like that out the way as soon as possible, before he gets any more momentum! Also, I'd have white, not that black seems to worry Dusan at all.

    Although I was pressing hard for much of my game with Mirko, he actually ended up just forgetting his clock and losing on time with material still level. I think with me having 35 minutes left and a lot of pressure that it would have been difficult for him to hold whilst on his increment, but Mirko is very tricky and it's certainly not like him to lose on time.

    Whilst any of the players on 4/5 could still win the tournament, with Dusan on a picket fence and plenty of depth in the field, they'd have to hit a rich vein of form over the last 4 games. If Dusan doesn't win it outright then my bet would be on a tie for first, possibly between several players. Then Dusan would go and win the playoff anyway... curses!

    Given that you floated up last round to play Mirko (he was on 4, you on 3), combined with the following rules from the Swiss (Dutch) pairing rules:
    Code:
    B.5
    No player shall receive an identical float in two consecutive rounds
    B.6 
    No player shall have an identical float as two rounds before
    I suspect any matchup with Dusan (while he is on a perfect score), might not happen for a few more rounds yet ...

    I should have the draw up late tomorrow night or Thursday morning, but will need to pair Zelesco & Michaille as if they had a draw, regardless of the actual result of their game.

    I should also have something up on my blog about the round later tonight or tomorrow.

    Some neuro-linguistic programming combined with the lure of a beer is an interesting mix of techniques...

    I'm sure everything will look different after 7 rounds of Ballaarat. Especially when Domagoj and Chris tie for first on 6.5/7!

    Hurray, at last (one of) the correct spelling (s)!!!

    From the History of Ballaarat:

    BALLARAT OR BALLAARAT?

    One of the most often asked question is "Do you spell Ballarat with four a's or three a's? It is generally accepted that the origin of the name came from two aboriginal words signifying a camping or resting place - "Balla" meaning elbow or reclining on the elbow and "Arat" meaning place.

    The first white settler (1837), Scotsman Archibald Yuille, called his property "Ballarat". We cannot know how a Scotsman pronounced an aboriginal word, but in 1851 another Scot arrived to officially survey the area and he recorded the towns name as Ballaarat. When the first local paper arrived in 1854, three years later, it was called the "Ballarat Times" (perhaps the typesetter ran out of "a's").

    Official government documents used the double "a" spelling and successive local councils varied the number of "a's" according to the prevailing fashion of the time,

    Prior to amalgamation of the councils in 1994, the municipality of the City of Ballaarat was the official spelling for the corporation that was the Council, though the official spelling for place name purposes of the area (then comprised of several municipalities) was Ballarat.

    When the new single Ballarat City Council was gazetted in 1994 the single "a" version was adopted for the corporation, to align it to the area's place-name,

    Therefore both spellings were legitimate at different times in the city's history and can still be seen on buildings and in historical literature.

    Unfortunately that beer might undo any programming you may have done, so I'd suggest doing that after you have the beer, which would of course mean you've won and therefore won't need the programming. Also, if you need any programming done, I'm a software engineer
