Hi all,

Just a few words to say that I am at a tournament in Germany while a few Scots, such as Clement and Alan Grant, are down at Hastings.

First round lost to a 2260 from a very good position but then had this game vs GM Skembris. Probably losing for me at some point but pretty unclear mostly. I was white.
