One surprise entrant in the current ANU Chess Club event was Jeremy Reading, but only because he had been locked away for the past month as part of a gaggle of geeks on the reality TV program "Beauty and the Geek". As the show has yet to go to air (it begins on Channel 7 tomorrow night) I expected him to be held prisoner by the producers until the final episode made it to air.
However it seems that the various non-disclosure agreements he presumably had to sign are protection enough, as he declined to tell anyone (including his own brother) how it all turned out. But I will hazard a guess and say that he didn't spend much of the time away working on his chess, as he was held to a draw by an opponent rated 400 odd points below him.
