  1. David Goggins says:

    I wish people would bother to let me know if they want a postponement 😦

  2. shahram says:

    Ok , In my last game diversion was an important strategy , to defend a pawn in the queen side I brought my queen out instead of using another pawn, then I markedly tilted my body and head to other side and just kept staring at opponent’s king side ( if I tilted anymore I would have fallen off my chair) for prolonged period , since queen was brought out to defend a pawn and my body posture was leaning kingside , opponent became desensitized to queen in the distance and thought of it as defensive piece and only focused on his kingside where he expected an attack,,,, then BAM . lesson over

    David, apologies – late notice is not your opponent’s fault. I knew about the availability issue since last week. Will arrange an alternative that suits both of you.

  4. Group C results does not reflect Round3 postponed game results.

  5. mjdkennedy says:

    Sorry Arda – your postponed R3 win against Tom Butler is now updated. Standings:
    1. Mahfuz 4/4 2. Arda 3/4 3. Dee 2.5/4, etc.

  6. shahram says:

    I only got a text at 11 pm last night stating that my game is postponed because my opponent has exams , first I like to know what school makes their students sit exams after 7pm in the evening ?!, secondly why was I not notified much earlier ? I was all psyched up for a quick win tonight and now won’t be able to reach the same level of mental climax & preparation for this game again 😦

    Cool , Arda has a photo of homer simpson which I assume showing homer in the famous painting of ” THE SCREAM ” , how do you do that , tell me please , I want one .

  7. Thanks for the update.

    Shahram, you need to open an account at gravatar.com (globally recognised avatars) and when you pick an avatar picture there, you can map it you your wordpress account which will make it shown here.
