    Any Olympiad appeal?
    “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

    It's great to see so many strong players from New Zealand selected to play in the Olympiad. If any of the selected players are looking for an event to play in the lead up and wish to participate in the 2020 Gold Coast Open, please get in touch scurtis@gardinerchess.com.au
