who was Merv Morrison by the way?

A long time member of the Auckland Chess Centre and great guy. Notable for being the only player I've ever seen on the rating list whose rating and number of rated games were close (both ~1100 later on).

At one time, Merv had played the most rated games of anyone on the standard rating list. His final tally was 1142 games and a rating of 1373.

Currently, Bob Smith has played the most standard rated games (1760) ahead of Anthony Ker (1414) and Russell Dive (1344). On the rapid rating list, Hamish Gold with 830 games leads from Peter Stuart (702) and Bob Smith (650).

After some issues, live games are online. But only 1 game is still going!

Next time I need to make sure network cable is plugged into the hub, as opposed to half plugged.
Just simply taking a glance at flashing lights would have saved lots of fiddling around and head scratching.

We're doing some experiments to better deliver tournament information online.

Revamping displays to become more basic so that they can be viewable by as many different devices as possible.
At the same time, preserving some traditional displays that people have got used to.

Vega generated tournament webpages should now be usable on tablets/smartphones.
Completed games PGN can now be viewed online thanks to integrating with pgn4web.
Somebody still has to perform move data entry!
http://www.newzealandchess.co.nz/live/Merv/MervMorrison/wwwMervMorrison/index.html

Live games are now viewable using pgn4web
http://www.newzealandchess.co.nz/pgn4web/nzlive.html

The traditional Flash viewer is still available.
http://www.newzealandchess.co.nz/live/Merv/tfd.htm

All the above links are available by clicking through from the main webpage for chess information in New Zealand.
http://www.newzealandchess.co.nz/

This may be the base standard for reporting all New Zealand tournaments in future. Obviously would depend on resource availability.

My game with Wang was one of the better games I have played in a while. Came close to winning, until i blundered with QxQ at the end to just hold the rook ending.
I'm surprised he missed my ng3 idea... Which just cripples white.

Would insert the game if i knew how.

Not bad, and you kept your composure after initiative changed hands.

Yeah it's tough going from a comfortable edge and with the mindset of worst case scenario I draw, to possibly losing. I was very upset after QxQ. But still had the courage to fight...
