    are yous holding each ethnicity separately. ... and then a combined one of the winners from each at the end
    .. this Caketin is full of little spiders and watermelon seeds.....

    ..Chess is all about fear and psychology

    ..Chess is like an exam..... you havent studied for

    ..If you're good at Chess it means you are very intelligent and could potentialy do great things
    ..... but that you might have wasted that playing way too much chess

    He should do well, since he has the record of the best Aussie performance at an Olympiad.

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

    Looking forward to this tournament starting in a couple of weeks.

    Organisers to be congratulated for attracting entries from a wide range of Federations. As usual, the host country dominates ... but not as much as in recent tournaments. In the Veterans and Seniors combined, New Zealand accounts for 22 of the 54. Australia is next (somewhat disappointingly low) at 5, together with Philippines. There are 4 from each of Iran and Nepal; 2 from each of Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Myanmar and Singapore. And 1 from each of Brunei Darussalam, Guam, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea (but he possibly counts as Australian!), Thailand and Uzbekistan.

    There are 4 GMs and 4 IMs.

    Also a bit disappointing (but as per usual) is the low number of female entrants - I see only 1 so far.
