A big thanks to all those involved in running and organising the tournament. This was by far my favourite Scottish Championships. I thought the venue was absolutely superb - being able to watch the games from the balcony was a real perk.

I think money has to go to getting titled players involved, because it allows norms, and a better tournament to watch and take part in. Looking forward to some of the tasty pairings tomorrow with them!

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, saw that article.. well the headline anyway. Stronger players make for better viewing, however......

Quick draws: On reflection, and having witnessed another quick tactical draw in a later round I think the tournament would surely benefit from a clause or Sofia rules.
