Re: British Championship Congress 2019

Charlie, I have no idea why you expect an apology from Carl. That seems to me to be quite beyond the pale. What I would say is I hope you think again and post on the Forum in the future because your posts are often entertaining and informative. But I think that this is certainly enough about the Lor...

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

Jack, I think that a well done is called for. Charlie obviously feels very strongly about this issue but his post was certainly pushing the boundaries.

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

On the commentary it was suggested that next year's event might be at Great Yarmouth, Scarborough or Liverpool. Out of interest, do you believe it will end up in any of these three places? Alex, why would you expect Matt to have a clue. Scarborough has always worked well and is a reasonably pleasan...

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

Is Adams still our best player? Yes, and by some distance, whatever the ratings may say. He has not just beaten people in this tournament - he has destroyed them. Howell will overtake him at some point. That point is not now. Yes, if there was a team event tomorrow, Adams would still be on board 1 ...

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

Dan Fernandez had another shocker today to finish on 50%. Slightly surprisingly, at least to me, he only dropped 13 Elo points overall.

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

Andrew Smith draws so at least he's broken his run of losses and, I imagine, he's still gaining elo points.

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

When Lorin was defaulted, does Charlie get the rating points. Just a thought.

I see FatLady has a view about this pairing on the ChessBomb coverage.

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to the number of move(s) that will be played on board four in the Championship in round 7 ? There are previous Richard vs Nick games in the db and total number of moves is 8 + 9 + 1 = 18 Could we break the Miles - Reuben record ? Pert-Pert sounds like a teleph...

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

Lorin admitted in his post that he made a mistake but it seems that his major concern is about his opponent's approach. However, perhaps I'd better say no more in view of Matt Bridgeman's post on the previous page of this thread.

Re: British Championship Congress 2019

Lorin, I am sorry to hear what happened. You, of course, made a mistake but, from what you say, your opponent acted in a way that is totally reprehensible. I fully understand why you don't wish to comment further.

Charlie Storey is a member of this Forum and no doubt he will reply at some point.
