Juga will perform Oh Capablanca at Batumi. I don't think I'm going out on a limb here to claim this is the one of the best songs about chess ever written. In addition, the YouTube video could easily be the opening credits from a Bond film.

My favourite remains the Half Man Half Biscuit number here.

Good spot - a bad result today, but overall a decent tournament and 20 points closer. I hope he can keep the form up next week, is it?

Yes, that last round loss will have cost Alan quite a few rating points Result

It looks like it also clinched an IM norm for his opponent.
