------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks Bob. Nigel is looking good.





------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nigel is an inspiration to the juniors.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At this tournament last year Nigel gained 15 grading points.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

15 grading points wow!




------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What do you mean.

QUOTE: "Nigel is looking good."

The games have not started yet?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Hey! I just turned on Fritz 12 and it says
Black is 0.09 pawns ahead and nobody has moved yet.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


That's it they have started.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nigel is looking good.





------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I wonder if Luke is going to play the Grunfeld again.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Luke is an inspiration to the juniors.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Luke has gained 32 grading points
since taking up the Grunfeld.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


32 grading points wow!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm going to enjoy this.
The Grunfeld in Luke's hands is a Killer.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


A Killer Diller Smasherooooo!!!




------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Go Luke Baby.
Just smash that White centre.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Luke is White today.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm going to try out that Grunfeld tonight in a league match.

We are playing Tooting II

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From your house to Tooting take the b69, turn right at Mandela Junction.
Take the 5th turning on the right and you are there.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Tooting board 6 player is graded 1712,
last year he was 1701. That's a rise of 11 grading points!!!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


11 Grading points Wow!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OH NO!

Keith has double pawns and it's only move 4.
He must be lost in the ending.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keith is an inspiration to the juniors.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's OK. I'm at work. I cannot get near Fritz.
But if Keith plays.
5.cxd4 Bb4+ 6.Bd2 Qb6 7.Nf3 Bxd2+ 8.Qxd2 Ne7 9.Nc3 Bd7
10.Bd3 Nbc6 11.a3 Nxd4 12.Nxd4 Qxd4 13.0-0 Qxe5

I think he will be 1.09 of a pawn ahead.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's a pity you cannot get near a computer.

Fritz is such an inspiration to the juniors.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Keith was only 1.08 of a pawn ahead v Kamsky and won
He gained 6 grading points.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


6 Grading Points wow!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Have you played over the Arkle - Kamsky game?


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


No. But it did gain Keith 6 grading points.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Well done Keith. Wow!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I remember that game. It won a Brilliancy Prize.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------


.....and the 6 Grading Points.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Do you actually play over any games?


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


No. Not recently.
Kamsky lost 9 grading points for losing to Keith Arkle.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Do you have any Chess Books?


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I have a Grading List.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hubba Bubba!!

Mark Hebden is playing a Queens's Gambit.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mark is an inspiration to the juniors.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He played it against me last year in a simul.
He smashed me up in 11 moves.
I think he must have prepared the game for me and now
he is putting the preparation to good use.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ha! He probably does not even know who you are.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Yes he does, he signed the score sheet.






------------------------------------------------------------------------------


You don't lose any grading points for losing a game at a simul.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


You lasted 11 moves against Mark Hebden. Wow!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Luke's game is hotting up.
Can he play Bxh7+ and mate in 3?



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

YES!!!

Go Luke baby smash him with the Bishop sacrifice.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Yahooo!!! The Bishop sac is sound.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Grading points for Luke alright. Lots of Grading Points.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Lots of Grading Points. Wow!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Luke has agreed a draw.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Surely you turn left at Mandela Junction to get to Tooting?

I turned left there last season.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Yes but you come from the opposite direction.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


No I don't, I've lived there for years.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey!

Look at Stuart Conquest's game.
What does Rc7 look like?




------------------------------------------------------------------------------











------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Board 11 is finished already!




------------------------------------------------------------------------------


These quick Grandmaster Draws are ruining the game.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Any juniors watching this will be put off playing the game.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Never mind the Juniors.
Sponsors. What about the Sponsors?





------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Something must be done about these short GM's draws.

Grrr.................


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Board 11 actually ended in a checkmate.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Mickey Adams has not made a move yet.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mickey is an inspiration to the juniors.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Maybe he has slept in.






------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Mickey slept in at Barcelona 15 years ago
and it cost him 12 grading points.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


12 Grading points Wow!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Has anybody got Mickey's mobile number.
Give him a call to wake him up.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


David Howell is playing his 17th Ruy Lopez of the season.

(Mickey's mobile number is 07598885552321).


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

David is such an inspiration to the junior player.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What great games and I'm at work.
I cannot get near a computer but if David now plays

15.Rac1 Bc6 16.b4 a6 17.a4 Qb8 18.b5 axb5 19.axb5 Bd7 20.Qb2 0-0 21.Re3 Nf5
22.Bxf5 exf5 23.Rg3 g6 24.Nxd5 f6 25.Nxf6+ Rxf6 26.Qxf6 Qf4 27.Rgc3 Rf8 28.Qe7

He will I think be +1.02!!!!!!!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Boys I do not think it's a good
idea to call Mickey on the mobile.





------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Hey that mobile number you gave out was wrong.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Last year 115,089 mobile numbers were given out wrongly.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


115,089 Wow!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


ERK! Nigel has lost.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


That loss will cost him 11 grading points.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


But how could he lose that position?
He was a piece up????

(11 grading points. Wow!)


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hate work. I'd just love to see what Fritz would say.

But I think Nigel was winning.

10.Qb5+ Nc6 11.Qxc5 Bh3 Threatening mate: Qxf1 12.Qe3+ Ne7??+- solves nothing

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Nigel's mobile went off.
He has been awarded a loss. He is fuming.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I'm closing down the live feed.
