    What happened to the game between killian vs kalinins ? I thought that was going to posted on this website , after all he handed over the score sheet same day as match to be posted , no need for annotation ,it would be great to see the game on that chess video thingy you use same you did for philip doyle.

    Going to bray rapid this saturday , if anyone rated over 1500 and wants play couple round of rapid 20 min +5 seconds ( I have the clock ) this thursday let me know .

    I hate raisins , can’t stand them and yet some people love them !! looked under the list of phobias and it is not listed , so I am going to call it ( Lil-grape-corpse phobia ) if any one has a better name let me know so I can submit it to wiktionary.

    Shahram – The scoresheet I was given was missing a few moves. I’ve asked Killian if he can fill in the blanks

    I am surprised to hear that , I think it is always best to write down the move as soon as it is made whether it is you or opponent before making another move but seen many times players make a few moves then try writing them down.

    Bray rapid tournament yesterday was a complete farce for me !.I was going to give it my best but destiny had a different plan for me. First game against alex mulligan an easy win then another win against bernard plamer and 3rd round I am against anthony fox , we are in the middle game and I have much better position than he has , I move , hit the clock and now is my opponent’s move and he just sits there for ages both hands under the chin and I am wondering why he is taking so long and look at the clock and to my horror I find that it is my clock which is moving and inquire as what has happened and another player sitting beside me called stephen moran states that he pressed our clock by mistake and I just get back to my game without getting my time back on the clock and stephen proceeds to pressing our clock 5 more times during the game !! in confusion and repeatedly protesting to stephen I even missed picking up free material to win the game and blundered and lost ,I threw in the towel for competition and totally lost interest , I played against rathmines junior player mathew gallagher and after 6 moves gave him a queen for a bishop and tried to fight back and in the last round against another low rated junior he knocked his water bottle over onto the board in middle game and we had to figure where pieces were and after resetting the board I moved my bishop in L shaped fashion just like a knight over the pawns and awaited his protest so I would resign but none came and he just kept playing and I immediately resigned after his move. what a waste of a day.

    Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having
    problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
