Heh. I noticed Sadler's registration. Good to see that it was a serious one. No sign of any 2700+ super GMs that haven't played in previous rounds?
Ivanchuk and Shirov have survived the Wood Green cull.

Fressinet arrived yesterday so I assume he will play for Guildford. Brian Smith is missing the captains meeting today so I assume that means he is going to an airport to bring someone else in for Wood Green.

Or it may be because he's no longer a captain :lol:

Bizarre. Ivanchuk's not playing today, he's in the bar with Fiona from Cheddleton following the live games on a laptop.

Not an unreasonable choice from his point of view :)
