    Default Don't Look Back


    I finally see the dawn arrivin'
    I see beyond the road I'm drivin'
    Far away and left behind

    It's a new horizon and I'm awakin' now
    Oh I see myself in a brand new way
    The sun is shinin'
    The clouds are breakin'
    Cause I can't lose now, there's no game to play

    Thanks for advertising that the only busy player playing in Victoria rated over 2000 is NSW Greg Canfell and the only other 2000+rating is a Queenslander Solomon. the rest are soldier bee plodders

    Victoria have more tournaments than the other states. It helps that Melbourne has a great clubbing scene.

    I am still waiting for a Victorian GM to enter the Oz Open. what has happened to The Man, has he returned to OZ. Why isn't he kicking Michael Baron's butt and grabbing the loot?

    He is playing the Hjorth Open. He lost to Christopher Wallis, which answers your question. The Man just doesn't have the goods to beat up those pesky 2300 FMs.

    He also drew a game before that. So we should be looking to the Victorian 8 and 9 year olds for their future GMs.

    Dude....with due respect to your totalitarian opinions...."The Man" is a beast who is simply being destroyed by the Australian chess scene. A chess scene that caters for casual dilettantes instead of real talent. If I had my way he would be frog marched fairly quickly to Siberia and de-programmed immediately form his bourgeois Strayla habits. "The Man" needs to play in Europe and accept his fate!

    The talent needs to be released........

    maybe some of your European tribe could put him up at mates rates for their Uncle. On the other hand isn't it pathetic that we still don't have a European base camp for all the aspiring young talent given how many rich prats play the game in Oz!

    You mention rich prats -were you referring to billionaire Richard Pratt from Sydney who poured heaps of money into junior chess in NSW. But after his death his mistress and kid claimed much of the fortune so big dong with the missus who looked about twice as aged worse for wear as myself. They did not want the mistress and boy at the funeral. I think she got one mansion and great living expenses out of it.

    my tribe are in Lebanon and USA

    Who is too dumb to donate? The property owners?
