Quote:I think it's more than just the games - it's the chat in between that make or break the magazine. On that point, I enjoyed the report on the Czech Open - someone who knows how to use an apostrophe...and the strength of character to ignore all possible puns using the word "Czech".

I'd thank you for that, but given that I usually proof-read the magazine I must unfortunately take responsibility for the articles in which apostrophes are incorrectly deployed as well. Got the puns out of the way on the holiday.

I have no comment to make on Geoff's post.

Cracking game from Colin there outplaying his opponent all the way through and a nice finish to tidy it all up.

I like this 8)


don't understand why the a8 square seems to be blinking though ???

The blinking square A8 indicates an error in the PGN data provided.
If you click the square you get more info to correct the mistake, in this case the error message is:

"error: invalid FEN (28) invalid active color in game 1"

this is because the supplied FEN string is not fully compliant to the standard; I think it should be

"8/1K6/2P2p2/B7/8/3k2b1/8/8 w - - 0 1"

instead of

"8/1K6/2P2p2/B7/8/3k2b1/8/8 - 1 0"
