    Well done everybody!

    It's great to see that some players who no longer play OTB are still playing serious chess.

    No surprise to me, considering his strength in correspondence play shown on this site.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. 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

    Quite interested to see Tasmania had a team, which did okay, as I don't know much about the current Tasmanian correspondence chess scene. Are there residency requirements for representing a state?

    Apart from the Henri family, Tasmania has a few stronger players in the wings - Derek Roebuck currently lives in London: Steve Mazza is now a resident.

    Birth or residence is the qualification requirement

    Yes of course Vlad, all ICCF events allow the use of books, databases and engines - do you want to join CCLA and play for Australia?

    Just register as an aussie at www.iccf.com and join Max, Yuan and David who are all CCLA members!
