    Alana next!

    Speaking of Alana, her interview shapes up as a really important one! She is the second junior player, after Sally, expressing her views here, and we all have something to learn from those views! Juniors, not only from ACT where she hails from, but from other States as well are encouraged to participate in the discussion that will follow the publication of Alana's interview!

    Yep, even though no juniors (apart from Miranda and occasionally Feng/Sally) actually read this!

    Thirded or fourthed. JaK your interviews are great reads and obviously represent lots of time and effort on your part. Well done and keep it up. Thanks to Gattaca too for giving a not insignificant amount of time for this multi-part interview. (I, too, enjoyed that film.)

    Thank you Jonathan, and all for your kind responses!
    Alana many juniors (Alex amongst them) are reading this thread as I am sure they read and post in many other threads!
    The participation of juniors in the Chess Chat is amazing and their contribution apart from inspiring the rest of us to be careful about the language we use and the things we are talking about is immence!
    IMO The most important factor of their involvement here is that their own views are heard and discussed and not just implied or just expressed by adults as it happened in the past.
    Also by publishing their games here juniors are given the opportunity to have their performance analysed, their efforts praised, and their mistakes corrected by some of the strongest players in Australia.
    Keep up the good work!

    There you are, organise them so they will! Don't you agree that this Forum here contains useful information about ACT??? Look at the tremendour response and discussion generated from the recent and earlier Doeberls. Also some of the very well known ACT Chess personalities DO post here!

    I actually remember this game, it was played 16 years ago in Vic Open (my first tournament in Australia). Guy won outright if front of of all top Melbourne players (including Darryl Johansen, Mikhail Gluzman and Robert Jamieson).
