Doeberl Cup Blogging

While I will be busy being a (paid) arbiter at the O2C Doeberl Cup, I will try and provide coverage via this blog throughout. Apart from the end of round (or day) summaries, I'll try and use my Twitter feed to provide up to the minute updates. While it won't quite be as interactive as the ClosetGrandmaster's live blogging exploits, I at least have the advantage of being allowed near a computer during the actual rounds. If you wish to 'follow' the feed, just click on the twitter link on the right of this page.
Of course live game coverage (of the top 4 boards) will be available from the official website. You will also be able to catch viceo coverage from the event, with end of round summaries from GM Ian Rogers, and interviews and analysis from other tournament participants. This year the entering of games will also be faster and it is planned to have the games from the Premier (and hopefully the other events) in replayable form as soon as possible after the completion of each round.
Apart from the official web site, I also plan to post results and draws for the Premier and Major at and indeed this may be the quickest way to get crosstables etc
