* The Womenâ€™s Invitational seems to have been completely overlooked by the ECForum in their Classic discussions. One of the bits of admin the uploader did was to prepare Gulishkan Nakhbayevaâ€™s WGM norm paperwork. Well done indeed to her â€“ she won her last six games on the trot to exceed the WGM norm requirement by half a point. Well done also to Dagne Ciuksyte, who shared first place with her two points clear of the field.â€
From a personal perspective, I would have liked to have watched and commented more on the Women's matches as well as the Open section matches. However, there just was not enough time to watch it all. There was commentary provided by the Classic on the main event and so it was easier for me to watch that alongside the games as that did explain much of what was going on.
Perhaps, for next year, you might offer some kind of round-up or commentary on the Women's Invitational as well as the Open and then it helps people like myself to watch and understand a little more and then we would maybe be able to contribute a little on it?
Well done to Dagne and to all the participants and winners. Overall, I have enjoyed watching the Classic when time permitted. Many thanks to all who have helped, to Malcolm, yourself, Sabrina, John, Jack, Tim, Alex, Neville, David, Laurence, Laurence, Danny, Stuart, Stephen, Chris, all the many people I may have forgotton to mention who helped make it such a fantastic event!
