Gawain left earlier this morning to catch a flight back to Pisa, Italy where he’ll be playing in Lucca. Please bear with me for the time being as we’re in the process of moving (who knew we had so much stuff) so updates may be infrequent. Gawain has very busy schedule flying back Sunday evening from Pisa before catching a Monday evening flight to Johannesbury, South Africa for the Commonwealth Championships. I see our friend GM David Smerdon has made it there after the trouble with the Volcanic Ash Cloud in Chile..

Gawain returns back on the Friday and then attends a simul in Lincoln! There is a few weeks before the British starts up in Sheffield and we’ll be all watching that!
