    Does anyone fancy playing in the Oxford University Rapidplay this Saturday?

    I'll be playing, and doubtless drowning my sorrows in the White Horse afterwards:

    You could set up a live cam for people to see the games. Its not hard to set up a webcam attached to a laptop and then just give us the link.

    I had to withdraw from this tournament due to my wife wanting to go shoe shopping, which was good news for GM Peter Wells who managed to win it in my absence. One of the competitors was the guy who was on Mastermind last night answering questions about Bobby Fischer!

    That is a shame it was today, as I might have come along otherwise. I had to do exam invigilating though, so I probably earned more by sitting in silence there then I would have in a chess tournament, he he.

    That sounds like a lame excuse. Drop your wife off at the shopping mall and then go and play chess. Then pick her up after chess is over.
