So they all got to the Emerald City in the end and then went their separate ways.

Perhaps the 3 points for a win rule is a bit like having to click your ruby slippers one extra time in order to get back to Kansas!

Hehehe, finally found this - knew there was a photo flying around somewhere. Speeches during the finals of the Tie-break competition...

Amazingly the Classic is already up on the fide site.

It's the only event shown for both players.

Luke http://ratings.fide.com/individual_calc ... 2011-01-01
Nigel http://ratings.fide.com/individual_calc ... 2011-01-01
Well, if Luke is the new number two, that is fantastic, but it won't make Nigel feel any better about that horrendous tournament result. From being England number one to going back to two and then down to three. Will Short still be in the top 100 in the world?

LIKES this ... Carl can we have a like button like facebook.

Not as good as Ray Morris-Hill's photos on the official website, but I've posted a wider range of subjects here: http://tinyurl.com/36u5ogj
