Happy Birthday Gawain!

It’s Ga’s birthday well it’s 12.11am Dec 11th here (though of course he was born in England). We’re up not just because of that but as he is doing the commentary for the London Chess Classic starting @3am. He’ll be commentating today on Howell-Carlsen, McShane-Kramnik, Ni Hua- Adams and Nakamura-Short. We’ve just been eating awesome NZ ice-cream (Google Kapiti Ice-Cream) and we’ll take a quick nap before he starts and I’ll do some cooking (birthday cake) and cleaning for our guests that we’ll have around in the evening.
