will decide the rest.


We had a record 20 players for this online event so thanks to all for their participation and support.

Our next tournament start on April 2. Watch out for further anouncements

You can find the Round 5 games below with comments on some. John Wright provides some Queens Gambit history in the Hamlet/Axel game as well as his own. Larry Stevens annotates his game against a Gerald Ruiz, a draw that had its share of excitement.

  1. John Roger Wright

    One of the more unusual positions I have seen was in Larry and Gerald’s game after the forced 32 Kh1. Mutually trapped Kings! Good commentary Larry.

  2. Russell

    Thank you for the annotations. Very helpful and much appreciated.
