  1. Hi Ben,

    it looks like they had problems with the broadcasting equipment.
    Friday I drew with Burrows, 196. A very intersting game where I should have had the edge but couldn't find it.
    Saturday morning I played Cannon, 185, and had a very, very promising postion after the opening. Both players were in time trouble and I lost.
    In the afternoon I played Padillo and drew after 3h comfortably.
    Sunday morning I had to withdraw from the tournament because my wife was ill and we had to drive back home to Taunton, where we had to attend the A&E department. She is fine, so don't worry!!!
