It didn't work too well for me...would be interested to know if others had issues.
(Boards 1 to 4 were generally OK, but not the lower boards.)

You appear to be right, I watched Hebden win but went to bed early so some of the games appeared not to finish

Dave??

Having the nerve to play 2. Bb5 on board one deserves some praise

Hi

Yes, we had a problem with the lower boards during round 1, but we fixed it later on. Unfortunatly duplicate score sheets were not in use yesterday so I cannot be 100% sure we captured the end of the game correctly (sometime players will contine after the end of the game and reset pieces etc. and the computer doesn't always detect the game has finished).

Everything looks OK from here for the 11 games going out in round 2.

Everything OK out there?

Dave

Mark Hebden may well 'convince' his opponent out of this one

Rabbitte-Cannon is highly amusing if you are not the first mentioned

Are there full results/pairings available? I wanted to track progress of some of our county players but could only find pairings for top few boards in each section on the congress blog.

Still waiting for Marco Fu v Mark King to be played in snooker, then it'd be a Fu-King match...

Hebden-Merriman 1-0 in six moves in round 5, mobile phone perhaps.

Very sad for John Merriman who's a nice guy - his game in round 4 was very impressive.
