    Yes, I originally wrote that I'd discovered snails that moved faster than Duxbury. But when Duxbury suddenly resigned for no readily apparent reason except that his position was somewhere near as ugly as his clock, I wondered if he might have been unwell or something during the game, and decided to delete my comment in case something of that case was true and I had unknowingly been insensitive.

    The Chandler-Smerdon match just ended in a draw, each player had around 5 minutes on clock. Chandler had a knight for Smerdon's Bishop, and equal in other material.
    Ultimate Patzer!

    Lane managed a win over Bjelobrk with the extra pawn at the end. Bjelobrk's position is quite interesting, as his King managed to run to h6, a hotspot for Lane's Queen's attacking sequence, forcing mate or severe loss of material for Bjelobrk.

    Wallis-Frame - double knight ending where Wallis sacrifices a knight, leading to a fascinating ending where Frame has a knight but Wallis has nasty pawns.

    Earlier Frame missed 26...a6 which appears to win a pawn.

    In the ending, instead of 55...Kd8, 55...Kc8! 56.Kf7 Nxg3 appears to draw although I am not completely certain of this. Now the pawn does not give check, so Black has time to rip off the g3 pawn and get back. 55...Nxg3 56.Kf7 Ne4 doesn't work because after 57.Kxg6 Kd7 58.Kxh5 White wins so Black has to play 57...Ng3 58.e6 Kd6 59.Kf7 Ne4 60.e7 with e8N! to follow after Black moves the king and what looks like a winning knight ending.

    In the end Wallis missed or discarded the underpromotion idea: 60.e7 (in the game, not the variation given above) Ne4 61.e8=N! and an apparently won knight ending.

    After this it should have been drawn had Frame played 68...Ne7 instead of 68...Nxf4+ which loses.

    Comments on the above welcome because even with computer assistance some of these lines are extremely hard to work out.

    I see the draw gives Frame a bye for tomorrow and Levi is absent from the draw. Does this mean Levi has withdrawn? If so is this an approved or unapproved withdrawal?

    The website uploading problems havent been solved, therefore the games will be updated every five minutes from the first moves.

    The extra four dgt boards have arrived, so we should have four more boards starting with round seven of the juniors (tomorrow).

    Wow! Look at Ftacnik's 21. dc6! Beautiful possibilities on e6. And look at Xie - Solomon. Those c-pawns are looking menacing in both games.

    Levy has requested to withdraw

    According to the web site Levy has asked to withdraw.

    I like it that they are getting extra DGT boards.

    I was watching Sally Lu's game when she blundered. Her previous move was not the best reither. Still she missed a queen sacrifice forcing checkmate at Ergas against me. So I am not complaining.

    On what part of the website does it say that.

    Did Solomon really lose on time as indicated by the online clock or did he just resign.

    He must have lost on time because I don't think he is really losing?
