Personal Notes

organiser of the 2003 Australian Young Masters and NSW Junior Masters, held at UNSW 23-27 April. "finger AUS-YMasters" for details.

I'm becoming more involved in administrative chess stuff of late. If you want to know what's happening chess-wise in Australia, chances are I'll know something, or someone who should know more.

There's more to me than Chess and Hip-Hop ... a lot of people don't seem to realise that!

I no longer have any chess achievements. It seems for every good game or move I play, there's many more bad ones that follow.

If you're from Australia and play tournament chess, let me know, I might know you, or you might know me. I'm also the operator of the Australian group (channel 366) g-join Australia if you are an Australian (or NZer) and want to be in.

Friends include: Chumpy, c#*@#& (censored due to 'anonymity' request), lemonruski, wally, ghostly, Demon, maninblack, smurfo, MegaZZ, Arianne, agro, AlanG, Illusion, hophip, Farkov,

I've met a few GMs - Rogers, Johansen, Benjamin, Milov, Nikolic, Ftacnik, Shirov, Anand, - though this is obviously no indication that I can play chess, simply that I know 'the right people'

Can anyone pick the cynic on this server? Try port 9870 for a more sedate alternative. Trying to remember how to play chess well ... Maybe the memory is returning ... Schroer (13:48 07-Oct-01 EDT): Congratulations on your fine victory in our simul game, Hip-HopBandit!
