This is Ga’s Round 1 game against the Albanian Sahitaj. We noticed a few rounds back that his rating had increase for Round 2 to be 2235! A first for Gawain.

Today, it is Round 6 and he faces GM Viktor Bologan – (yes, the one who wrote The King’s Indian According to Bologan and The Chebanenko Slav According to Bologan.). He has been around 2700 for many years so is no muppet!

The weather here has completely changed. Today, it is grey and there is no sun :(. I’ve decided to stay inside today and watch the games online although I may have to venture out for a crêpes or two!

Clocks changed in the  middle of the night (daylight savings) and I’m wondering how many chess players managed to forget? The 4NCL is on also this weekend so good luck to Pride and Prejudice who face Guilford today! Live games here.
