    Narelle is one of the few women in Australia who bothers to play chess regularly. She deserves it.

    One might argue that there are other women in Australia who are stronger then Narelle and should get it before her (e.g. the person who was working with her at the zonals ), however Narelle played, the others either didn't play or played worse than her, so she won it fair and square under the rules.

    and as i have said many times before it is the rules that i believe are at fault. Will this mean she gets free entry to tournaments?

    Given other WIM's get free entry then I think the answer is obvious.

    My goodness - free entry to tournaments ....

    Before we know it, we will be going bust on the strength of these undeserved awards being thrown about!

    Pull your head in Garvin. Maybe you can arrange to ship Steve Bradbury's Winter Olympics Gold Medal back as well????

    Can't we just be gracious enough to congratulate a player who competes within the rules and achieves something as a consequence?

    my problem is not with the player, my problem is with the rules. You are telling me to pull my head in here, but you arent doing the same in the mt buller thread and it is getting really tiresome.

    Play nicely both of you!!
    Garvin; failure to provide service = dissatisfied customers
    Libby: Female titled players = threat to some men's egos

    Garvin, Libby may be justified, and Libby, Garvin may not be, or vice versa, but let us not just snipe at each other?
    I actually will reiterate well done Narelle, and of course she gets free Entry
    Take care and God Bless, Macavity

    please dont misrepresent my position. My position is not in relation to egos at all. I have a big problem with a player who has an acf rating of 1700 getting free entry to tournaments when a 2100 player does not. Maybe if this is going to continue, the free entry for titled players needs to change to giving free entry based on ratings instead of titles.

    Not for the zonals, which is what GG is whining about. Maybe he is a misogynist, as well as a miso-junior-ist. (although of course you are right - their FIDE ratings are much more respectable than the ACF ones. )

    jenni,

    i'm merely saying that the local acf ratings have nothing to do with titles and that gg has no grounds for attempting to "enterprise bargain" a free entry deal for anyone who has a better rating than what narelle has

    i sense a few too many behind the scenes feel they have carte blanche to deride her

    i say good on her and well done!!

    Hello Jenni,

    Can you please define what you mean by both these terms?
