    I visited the tournament today (at least partly to give Charles a lunch break!) and when I left Gary Lane had won on Board 1, Board 2 was still going, Cabilin had won on Board 3 and Murray had won on Board 4.

    What is the time control?

    Post 1 says it is "90 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 30 minutes for remaining moves, with an increment of 30 seconds per move from move 1."

    However the tournament brochure says it is "All moves in 90 minutes + 30 seconds increment per move from move 1."

    Post 1 is incorrect - I had not noticed that until now, but as far as I know is the only place where the time control was advertised as such. The games were played at 90+30.

    Now, I have all the time in the world to prepare for my next European summer vacation!

    BTW a wonderful tournament - well that's a North's tournament you expect the best! Thanks Brian, thanks Paul and above all thanks Charles and all participants!

    Also, the weather was absolutely brilliant, apart from chess I enjoyed my roaming around NSW I took 100s of photos, I met old and new friends and going back to Melbourne for a bit of a rest now before the new ventures!

    (*) Regardless my poor results I am happy with my performance. In a couple of games I lost from winning positions. The ones I won, I played better than my oponents! The other three I was completely outplayed!

    Congratulations to Gary! It is all very well to be the top seed. You still have to win the tournament and he did!

    As Adamski already congratulated Gary, I will take the pleasure to congratulate and thank the tournament organizers as well as Robert Smith who made the tournament interesting to follow by providing Gary with cut-throat competition for first.

    Round 7
    White Norman Greenwood
    Black Elliott Renzies
    Result 0-1

    Last round game. Both players need to win to avoid the wooden spoon! I gambled with the Englund Gambit. I know that if White knows the opening and plays correctly Black is doomed. However, not many players know the winning line and this inferior opening once again saved me from disaster.

    Here we go!

    Check Mate. 0-1.

    I must add that I won the game but Mr Greenwood won the analysis - very convincingly too!

    6.Qd5? and 7.Bd3? - and the game is very much but over!~ Nice pin on e4 by black. Not quite sure how black could possibly win the analysis after this

    Thanks for the input Michael.

    We analysed a couple of lines where White handles the opening in a more theoretically acceptable manner such as

    Analysis shows that White gets the better in those lines!

    Arh I see, well around move 4..why usually has decent positions in all openings. And yes, 1..e5 is extra risky.

    I didn't know the idea of the Englund Gambit was to go poisoned pawn hunting and leave your king on an open file in the centre. Doesn't sound like much of a gambit.

    You are right. Qe7-b4 may work against Budapesht gambit but here it is dubious is black is too much behind in development. Ne7-g6 is also a bit too slow. Therefore, 3...d6 may be the way to go trying to complete the development fast and gain some active play.
