AMENDMENT Arthur has kindly sent the PGN for his game against Peter. He writes: "The basic theme is White plays too passively and Black can just improve his position on either side of the board (for instance, 24. … Nb6 followed by 25 … a5 is also good)". Arthur was pleased that the result pushed him up to 50% overall. Peter can be happy with his performance overall, though, he was just a bit unlucky only to get draws with Nijman and Nyberg.
Russell seemed almost back to his old form with his victory over Andrew Stone, so I hope he will be fighting fit for the crucial game this week.
I was pleased with my victory over Bill, as my form has been pretty poor since the first 2 games of this tournament (against Nijman and Nyberg), and I played this game not too badly.
