    I'll seriously consider playing. A bit afraid that schedule is quite strenuous.
    For private coaching (IM, four times VIC champion) call or SMS 0417519733
    Computer tells you what to play. Good coach explains why.

    Players on the ACF rating list without an ! after their name can still play a pretty good game.

    M. Baron 2321
    D. Bourmistrov 2209
    Z. Lin Wilson 2260
    A. Pecori 2136
    A. Sirota 2169

    I think I'll be joining this company soon
    I've never been so broke that I couldn't leave town

    Teo is currently top seed in the Croydon Open and recently competed in the Vic Rapid Championship so he's one player on your list who's more likely than not to get a ! back in the future

    Come on prez, don't forget you were the one who beat (fixed nicely I should say) Levon Aronian - no. 3 in the world these days, thus achieving one of the greatest ever victories in Australian Chess History!

    Levon will be facing world's no. 1 for the candidates early tomorrow morning our time (and I really hope he kicks Magnus's butt because I am a fun of V. Chuk but that's another story)

    So please leave all ideas of joining the retirees company behind and get on the board!

    Thank you Elliott for your kind words! I am not retiring just yet Here is the game against Levon Aronian http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1397295

    I hope to see Levon winning Candidates in London 2013 and after that beating Anand!

    I wish him well and will be barracking for him for the next 3 weeks.
