    I was so amazed with the way Will came back in my game that I have attempted to remember the moves which (up to 25) I think went …

    I struggled on from there but lost on time either just before or just after reaching the increment on move 40.

    Nice effort to remember all that. After thinking about it for a while my Stockfish says that white has a draw on move 22 (including against ...Qa5), and that black's last chance for an advantage was 21...Qb3 after which white plays 22.Nf5! Even in that line the position is messy as the knights are very annoying. The first exchange Will lost was a mistake but the second was a very good sacrifice.

    Surprised his rating is that high - he played in one of our Tuesday nights blitz events at MCC - and we did quite well against him - from memory he scored something like 6/9 and that week the tournament was not that strong

    It's been discussed above - those are ACF Quick ratings and his is based on just two events. He is very good by Tasmanian standards though (FIDE 2087).

    Didn't see Will's win over Thanh but it was pretty quick. As was mine against Will (it was a Rossolimo). This was Little - Bonham.

    Pirotais - Bonham

    Chris had a lucky break Adam - he was down to one second (albeit with increment) when Adam completed an illegal move.

    I suppose that Black just has to move the K on move 13, and try to castle artificially, and hope to survive because of the exchange of two pairs of minor pieces. Hard to develop the Q-side as well, but at least no material loss with a depressing position on top as per the note to move 14.

    Yes. I had the feeling that equalising couldn't be as easy as it appeared to be and there might be something hanging in the air but I simply did not see Nxe6 until Jerome played it. It was a very unpleasant surprise!

    I suppose that if he and Prof. Em. Small play in the Tassie Champs, it will be the strongest ever?

    Have not heard that either is playing and have also heard Martin Friebe isn't. Anyway we'll find out today as this is the deadline of entries.

    Otto Weber in the 1940s-50s was at least strong FM if not IM strength based on his Aus Champs results. Yet the locals were good enough to hold him to only 13 of the 16 state titles he contested, so I think there must have been some very strong fields back in those days.

    Sorry, unfortunately I have a large number of grant applications to review before a trip to NZ on the 26 March. I think I am busier post-retirement than when I was working full time. So a trip up north is kinda out of the question. I will also have to take two breaks from junior training as well (sorry Ian), as I will be away in Jérôme’s beautiful country for 6 weeks from April 17. Free when I get back though! David
