Re: Sue Maroroa Jones

There are times when I really don't know what to say, but I'll try.

Sue was a wonderful woman, devoted to Gawain and latterly to their family.

RIP

Re: David Sedgwick health update

Thanks again for all the good wishes both here and elsewhere. I am continuing to make steady progress, although it is frustratingly slow at times. I am not yet ready to return to playing chess and when I do it is likely to be online initially. On Wednesday 22nd March I signed a contract to remain pe...

Albert Vasse

Earlier this afternoon I was deeply saddened to learn of the recent death of Albert Vasse.

He was the Co-founder of DGT and a distinguished International Arbiter with whom I had the pleasure of working at the London Chess Classic for nine years.

Rest in peace, my friend.

Re: David Sedgwick health update

I never expected to see a thread on this forum displaying such complete unanimity as this one has done. Still less did I imagine that I would be the subject of any such thread. I am extremely grateful for all the good wishes which I have received, both on this Forum and elsewhere. I am making slow p...

Re: FIDE World Rapid & Blitz 2022 Almaty Kazakhstan 25-30 December

Then, at the European Individual Championships earlier this year, Ukrainians were permitted not to play Russians, including FID players. That's not been applied at this event - there've been 6 Ukraine vs. FID pairings so far and all games have been played. I understand that it was made clear before...

I understand it was a JustGo/Admit error. No biggie.
I only noticed this thread after I had reported the triplication to the ECF. I wonder how many similar emails they received.
