Richardson 2012-13
From the 4NCL website
Quote:8.4 Where there is a difference of more than 80 FIDE rating points under rule 8.3 between two players in the same team, the higher rated player must play on a higher board than the lower rated player.

From Andy Muir
The 80 point rule stands until the end of the season and can only be modified by a captain's or AGM vote.

If you want such a rule in place as the 4NCL have, feel free to propose it and find a seconder - until then it is completely irrelevant; there IS no 80 point rule, therefore it cannot stand until the end of the season and Andy Muir needs to stop trying to use his position to abuse the tournament rules.

I have no idea why the other boards last year were played out of grading order, but my match-up with Neil was down to Andy Muir =o After some pathetic and disparaging comments from Andy Muir about an article I had written using a game I played against Neil, I was informed by an Edinburgh West player that 'Neil is looking forward to revenge' (partly tongue in cheek, I don't believe Neil to be the vengeful type!) to which I replied, 'That can be arranged', and there you have it; I played Neil. All Andy Muir's fault!

I have no intention of spending an hour before the game discussing this nonsense. Do what you like and we'll respond any way we see fit, but it's perfectly clear that Andy Muir is not a fit person to be in any position of power or influence within Scottish chess as he has proved time and time again.
