    Congrats to both Omar Khaled and Ethan Hooi who share the brilliancy prize for 2018 MCC Semi-Open for their hard fought draw in round 8 of the Swiss event.

    They share the prize and thus are each entitled to a $20 voucher from MCC towards the purchase of chess books.

    Ethan was close breaking through but Omar found a resource which turned the table before acquiescing to a draw.

    Thanks Thai. In fact, at the end of the game, Ethan showed that I could have checkmated him by playing 26. Rf8+ (instead of 26. Qxh6)......Ke7 27. Ba3+ C5, 28. Re8+ and Black loses his queen in the next 2 moves. I somehow missed this calculation and instead thought I had a winning chance by trading my queen for his rook! It proved to be otherwise!
