    ...

    which, as best I can tell, is from the Latin "postscriptum". so perhaps it doesn't even belong in the Queen's English?

    I believe that players are still able to enter the major today; no draw will be conducted until entries for the 1st round have closed (ie entries on the day are still being accepted but these players will receive a half point bye in round 1).

    A draw for the major was posted in the analysis room at around 11am this morning. However, still nothing on the website now (2pm).

    And speaking of draws:

    7 1975 2044 Marner, Gavin (0) ½ - ½ Cox, Barry (0) 0 1701

    Good start.

    Excluding the unrated players, 4 upsets and 4 draws from 29 games in the Major.

    Tomorrow Ian Rout has a shot at Sheldrick on board 1.

    Thanks. The game finished around 7 then 30 minutes or so post mortem - a tough day at the office but satisfying.

    Check the PGN file at the bottom of the Rd 4 pairings. Since these files are updated as games are entered, you will often see a lot of results there before the whole round of results is updated in the pairing page itself.

    Hey, something odd...

    Dizdarevic - Davidovici in Round 5...

    The pairing has Davidovici as black.

    The game in PGN, has black winning the game, 0-1.

    Yet in the results on the site and pairings for tomorrow, it has Dizdarevic as having won the game.

    So.... something is screwed?

    And the position is certainly winning for black.

    Yeah, well.. if they don't catch it, it messes up the pairings, so hopefully someone will read this and investigate.

    Also I'm pretty certain Victor was black as I've seen him play that system before.. him and his son.
