Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-31-19  PhilFeeley: Lots of interesting chess here, but also lots of short draws. Are tournaments finding the no-draw-before-30 rule unpopular with players?

  woldsmandriffield: Any chance of an update - the tournament is stuck in round 4. Thanks!

  Tabanus: Congrats Mickey.

Palliser had w/o wins in rounds 3 & 4 (so only 7 games). Arkell did not play his rd. 4 game (vs Palliser), and Pert did not play his last round game.

Dec-15-19  paavoh: What economy by Adams, average moves per games less than 28.
