HD Bank International

FM Junta Ikeda was very light on his feet after his 4th round game in the 2012 ANU Masters. He played that game on the evening of the 29th of Feb  and the next day headed of to Vietnam to play in the 2nd HD Bank International. Fortunately the first two rounds were on the 2nd of March so he had at least 1 day to recover.
Joining him in the 9 round swiss are fellow Australian players IM Moulthun Ly and Peter Frost. After 3 rounds Ly is on 2/3 and Ikeda is on 1.5 although they both played GM's in the third round.

Richard was a regular at the Tuggeranong Vikings Chess Club until his health began to fail.

A gentleman in the truest sense.
