Bob, round 2

Round 2 had a few more live games that round 1. The notable item was that Steven has mastered (well, L plates at least) the new Vega system in place of swissperfect. (Vega is FIDE and ACF approved as the pairing system – doing it manually is so last century). The results and pairings will look a little different now. Players 33 and 34 look a little upset for now!

Bob, round 3

Only Dean has a perfect record after 3 rounds. Well done! Who can catch him, with just 2 rounds to go? There are 11 others no more than a point behind. Some of us are just bobbing along.

Bob mark 2

Firstly, a big welcome to Bruce, Regina and Geoff to the club for their first games on Tuesday, who join Sushant, Sarah and Matthew who each joined at the start of the year. Its great to see new faces at the club, so please join with me in welcoming the new players. More depth and player variety will only be a good thing for the club as a whole. See you at 7:30pm Tuesday.

And remember, if you cannot make it on Tuesday, then please LET US KNOW in advance; this is just common courtesy. There is nothing worse than coming along to only find out later that your opponent is absent!
