There you go, Jonathan. You're "sources" from now on: Leonard confirms :)
Not a totally reliably researched article though as it claims that Michael Adams was registered at the start of the season.

Howell isn't doing much better.
Only winning three games in a row?
Finishing on 7.5/10 and 3rd=. A very good recovery from the round three blunder.

Re: Tata Steel Wijk Aan Zee Fri 11th to Sun 27th Jan 2019

I note that the two female players in the Challengers failed to win a single game between them. (which is a bit sad, and something I can't remember happening before) True, although seven draws against that opposition (even if their rating performance was below their own rating) is still respectable.

I'm new to this - why can't I find these results on "Chess Results" - nothing on the "NED" page - should I be looking elsewhere?!

Re: Premier League Fantasy Football 2018-19

Week 21 and 68 of our 77 team league have passed the 1,000 point marker. In last position is Tom Thorpe who again posted the low score of the week with 30 points; also equalled by Lawrence Cooper. That news is definitely the icing on the cake this evening after losing a 4NCL player through illness ...

Player urgently wanted

Due to illness I am now down a player on Saturday & Sunday at Bedford Div 4. I would happily accept any player of any ability but below 2298 to avoid breaking the 80 point rule with our Division One teams.

Quite right too. A player who drowns has almost certainly left the playing venue during play.
For some reason I am reminded of the flood at Big Slick on seeing your comment :shock:

Cherniaev looks likely to end up on 7 points too, so that will mean a 6-way tie for first place (assuming Sulkis wins too).
Yes, you're right. Six joint winners, a great result for Conor Murphy.

Will there be a play-off if more than one winner ?
Not that I'm aware of. There are four players on 7/9 with the possibility of a fifth (from the Lalic-Sulskis game).
