    FM Stojic is in!!!

    Already I can confirm that our first entry into this event is a big name player (and possibly the 2012 MCC Champion - depending what happens in the final game of the playoff match), FM Dusan Stojic!!!

    Get your entries in - you may get to play Dusan and you have the chance to gain 9 more points in the MCC Grand Prix!!!

    Reminding everyone this starts next Monday (the 10th).

    If you look at the memorable games page on the website you can see Anthony Hain's game VS Justin Tan from last years MCC Open.

    Current MCC Grand Prix standings: (these are updated on the website after every tournie)



    Also I'll be trying to get the DGT and maybe webcam working for this one. However without "young lekkas" really anything could happen including a barage of Katy Perry ads as per the West-Stojic webcam feed Once again, the MCC in no way shape or form endorses the work of Katy Perry and apologises to all offended or outraged.

    Our live games page is up and I'll broadcast the top board every week. See you Monday!
    (as always, if you have a smaller monitor press Ctrl and Minus to shrink the page so you can see the board properly)
