Briefly the same problem cropped up on Jones-Turner, though it has gone away again.

So Jones did convert. Howell-Jones on Monday I suppose, which we all called as the critical game before the championship.

Just for a moment I thought Walker v Weller might give us the Arkell Ending, but it's not going to happen.

I assume the moves broadcast from move 45 onwards are wrong assuming black didn't blunder a piece, white didn't allow black to win her queen and then black didn't play it and they then agreed a draw with white a piece up :shock:

Can anyone tell me what has happened with Adair-Bhatia, my board has no clocks and doesn't seem to be showing any more moves after 27.Kf3

Another case of the players looking at an amusing variation on a sensory board I suppose. Maybe we should petition FIDE to make it a 00 offence

So we're down to Surtees-Roe and Shaw-Palliser?

They started analysing before me or another arbiter could get there. Moves corrected.

In Surtees-Roe, White played 48 Qg1, but 48 Rb8 Ra1 49 Qb7 Qe7 50 Re8 looks decisive - what am I missing?

No "maybe" about it! 48...Ra2, of course. Thanks.

maybe means me not Rybka :) I'm not sure I am willing to take the risk of trying to work out what Mike Surtees is thinking on a regular basis :)
