    Round 1 Results

    Hello, everyone,

    Can barely keep my eyes open owing to tiredness and Flu.

    Will speak of some of these Games soon

    Code:
    Round 1 results
    
     1 Peter Froehlich  2374 [0]      1:0    John Davenport    1611 [0]  
     2 Alex Kaplan      1601 [0]      0:1    David Beaumont    1926 [0]  
     3 James K Hislop   2089 [0]      1:0    Patrice Fortin    1600 [0]  
     4 Adel Ghobrial    1597 [0]      0:1    Pano Skiotis      2050 [0]  
     5 Malcolm Pyke     1988 [0]      1:0    Robert Brooking   1512 [0]  
     6 Nick Ivanov      1451 [0]      1:0    Thai Ly           1953 [0]  
     7 Richard Voon     1901 [0]      1:0    Adam Lovegrove    1438 [0]  
     8 Luke Cutting     1365 [0]      1:0    Jim Papadinis     1788 [0]  
     9 George Zileski   1743 [0]      1:0    Steven Doon       1328 [0]  
    10 Sebastian Wojnar 1300 [0]      1:0    Barboros Kara     1728 [0]  
    11 Roger Beattie    1705 [0]      1:0    Wendy Smith       1210 [0]  
    12 Paul Sanderson   1163 [0]      0:1    Paul Kovacevic    1684 [0]  
    13 Richard Mc Cart  1682 [0]      1:0    Jean-Luc Tambasco 1050 [0]  
    14 Ben Henzgen      1000 [0]     .5:.5   John Beckman      1613 [0]  
    15 Emanuel Ruzeu    1344 [0]       :     Guy West          2369 [0]
    West postpones owing to forgetting the event started tonight, and Manny Volunteered to play him later on Saturday at 5.pm

    A provisional draw based on West winning might look distinctly like this

    Code:
    Very provisional pairings Round 2
    
     1 George Zileski    1743 [1]       :     Peter Froehlich 2374 [1]

    15 Robert Brooking   1512 [0]       :     Paul Sanderson  1163 [0]
    The reason for the emphasis on very is the desire to try and get a few late entries. Any interested party should contact the club

    Take care and God Bless, all, Macavity

    You and me both ... I managed about 1 hour of sleep last night, due to runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, hacking cough ... so am at home having a (rare) day off work.

    Both of you, all those blessings have not done any good.

    Yep, we're obviously being punished for something or other ...

    Heh, alas I am not playing in this tournament although I would enjoy the challenge of playing against some of the guys in this field.

    Apart from FG7 & macavity, Guy West is an infrequent BBer, not sure about the 4th.

    Maybe it requires a houdini like effort to find the 4th player.

    Cheers Fg7

    News flash!

    Myself and Watto are both bb'ers who are playing in the event. Late entries.

    Watto recently pointed out that if we combined our ratings we are the strongest player in the world by a long way, so watch out!

    What is the story behind the story that DB cannot play certain rounds in certain places?
