Good luck to all the English players in Paracin.

Unfortunately the tournament has started about a week too soon for Matthew Wadsworth to have been able to play as an IM.

Wins for Justin, Matthew, Joseph, Marcus, and also Carl Strugnell (apologies, hadn't spotted him earlier). Draw for James and a loss for Sam. Round 2 tomorrow at 0830 UK, round 3 at 15.30 UK also tomorrow. No doubt the lads will all be early to bed given early round time and double round day.....

Ah, Carl Strugnell. Another one of the group of players who have all the norms but haven't yet hit 2400.

McPhillips (3.5) is White on board 2 against top seeded GM Ivan Ivanisevic (3.5) in round 5 tomorrow morning (9.30am start). None of the other British players is in the leading group, and Wadsworth is only on 1.5.

Joe drew that one, good result, and followed it with a draw against an FM; he then lost to a 2400+ FM

Ivanisevic is joint leader

two all-Brit/IRL pairings in the last round, in case any of them want to finish early.

Joe won to finish 8th which as 29th seed is a good result; he seems to be playing very well at the moment

Ivanisevic won

Great result for Joe (6.5/ 9), and good tournament also for Marcus (6). The guys fly home tomorrow.
