    GM Sergei Shipov is the top seed in the Sydney International Open to be held in Parramatta after Easter. He has been in the top 100 players in the world list for many years and still has a world rank of 163. As a comparison Australia’s 2 GM’s have world ranks of 525 and 1,196 respectively.

    He is also a master Blitz player and believes Blitz is very democratic, as it allows a more level playing field. He studied Physics at University and turned professional after gaining an Engineering degree.

    This is a fantastic opportunity for Canberra players to attend a short lecture and then pit their skills against him!

    GM Shipov is sponsored by Stratagem Computer Contractors P/L

    Sergey has 3 lecture + simuls arranged at the moment. One is in Canberra and two are in Sydney. In principle he has some spare time after the Sydney International Open. So if somebody interested in organizing a lecture + simul in Melbourne pls contact me.

    Bloody hell! Normally they put the tables next to each other.
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    I seen/saw Ian Rogers do a simul with juniors, a junior mixed up the whole board shortly after Ian had moved on but had not noticed, Ian proceeded right around the hall making about 40 moves and then returned and set up the board again.

    (seen/saw is due to not trying to fluke two winners in one night)

    So far the results of the simuls for Sergey are as follows:
    Canberra + 30, = 2, - 0;
    North Sydney + 20, = 2, - 0.

    Congratulations to 9-year-old Oskar Wang who produced a powerful strike that the grandmaster missed to transfer the game into drawn endgame.

    The last chance to play Sergey is in the St George club on the 17-th of April. I hope the St George will be more ambitious. Sergey is not that hard to beat. We had a match of 12 blitz games yesterday and I managed to get 3 scalps. Ye-e-e-s-s-s!
