    We had a few players unavailable tonight, but they will join the tournament next Friday. If you would like to play, please contact Shane and we will see you next week.

    Multiple Grobs (and Double Grobs) have been played - Jacob Edwards currently leads the Grob challenge with 3.5 from 4 attempts.

    It was also good to see numerous beanies and pyjamas. See you all next week.

    Very good turnout!

    Are there any games available?
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Congratulations to David Smerdon who has taken out the 2018 Marcus Porter Memorial.

    Well done to Joe Lin who won a beanie for the best placed under 1100 prize.

    Congratulations to Tom Maguire who led the way with 7 grob points from 8 attempts and walked with the coveted grob prize. David was second place with 6 grob points from 6 attempts and Jacob Edward third with 5.5 grob points from 8 attempts. Once again a number of players embraced the grob theme and the grob or reverse grob was played 74 times.

    The prize for best dressed went to Tyson Walker who was definitely ready for bed in his pj's and shark slippers.

    Many thanks to the Porter family who once again donated a beautiful clock trophy for the winner.

    Thank you to everyone who played and hope to see you next year.

    Round 8 wasn't so interesting and I can't remember it anyway. I think these were the final moves:

    FEN Viewer


    White should play fxe4 and struggle on, but instead he played Ke1, when after e3, Black should be just winning. My young opponent lost on time either here or on the next move.
