    Hey George

    No, I only drew that. Here is the crosstable and pic.

    Obviously you had little trouble in your last game. But I would suggest Nf3 before e4, otherwise Black can counter with ...e5; cf. Alekhine vs Marshall, 1925.

    Congratulations to Craig and Jono for winning the Logan championships as well as John, Aaron and Tony for taking out the rating divisions.

    Thanks for the hint about the Marshall.

    Cheers
    George.

    Glad to see Joe Wycha back. He has done much for the club in recent years, with the study group, personalized scorebooks, compiling a history.

    Might not be so silly. Our premier tournament after the Club Champs was a time handicap tourney called the "Logan 2000" last century, but we haven't agreed on an appropriate name for this century.

    well you're naturally most welcome to use it........seems too cute to miss, from a marketing angle at least.

    2008 is under way at the Logan club, which combines a good social atmosphere with strong competition as shown by our second place in the 2007 QLD Interclub. See our 2008 calendar, which also has the dates for the CAQ Teams League and Queensland Teams Championship.

    Jono, a mate of mine is now living not far from Logan ... I will see if he's still interested in chess ... if he is, I'll put you in touch with him. Very friendly chap, about 1200 ACF rating approx, also very helpful if club organisers need a hand with setting up, packing up, that sort of thing. Will PM you details if he agrees.

    Thanx Spiny. We can certainly do with extra helpers, that's for sure.

    Current Australian Champion, IM Stephen Solomon, led his team to victory in our Lightning Teams Champs on Friday 22 Feb by a convincing margin. As expected, he was the top scorer on Board 1, but it was quite close:

    Code:
                    1     2     3     4    T     
    1. Solomon     XXX   1 0   1 ½   1 1   4½   
    2. Sarfati     0 1   XXX   1 0   1 1   4
    3. Klein       0 ½   0 1   XXX   1 1   3½
    4. Korenevsky  0 0   0 0   0 0   XXX   0
    
    Craig Stewart scored 6/6 on Board two, and was the only player to score 100%.

    well done Jono,

    you often take a point off Solo.

    Commiseration to poor Oleg
