    Thanks Patrick for doing a top job as DOP and for placing updates on ChessChat!
    Congratulations once again to BRODIE McCLYMONT for winning his umpteenth Queensland WeekEnder with a perfect 6/6!
    Great to see Year Twelver Yi Liu make a top return to tournament chess. Charles Tsai's draw with IM Moulthun Ly was a big achievement too and Redcliffe's Michael Cashman performance was impressive, pushing Brodie all the way to the finish line.

    All eyes now turn to the 2014 Queensland Chess Champs starting this Thursday night at Brisbane ChessClub at 7:15 pm!
    The Reserves Championships for Under 1700 players starts on Saturday at Nudgee College in Boondall.
    SEE YOU THERE!

    Brodie should be on track for Olympiad selection if he keeps beating recent Olympians.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Of course he would also have to apply.

    Congrats to Brodie for the emphatic win.

    Probably true. But one kind-of recent Olympian he did not beat - indeed lost to - last weekend is our good friend Dr Tony Dowden who played for NZ. But as I have said in relation to Max I, everyone is allowed to lose a game occasionally - especially to other players who are also good. (But it should not lead to pulling out of a tournament. If I did that every time I lost I would never complete a tournament!)

    I'd say that if he is interested, he'll need to get more runs on the board at longer time control FIDE-rated events as well as the weekenders he is so consistent and reliable in. And also stop withdrawing from tournaments. Whatever the reasons, a player with a history of withdrawing while performing badly creates an impression that if they start an Olympiad poorly they will collapse in a heap.
