London Chess Classic - Aussies in Action

Magnus Carlsen wrapped up first place in the 2012 London Chess classic with a final round draw against World Champion Viswanathan Anand. He finished half a point ahead of Vladimir Kramnik, who would have had the critics raving over his performance, if he hadn't been overshadowed by the Norwegian.
But apart form the main event, there were a number side events, and these featured good performances from visiting Australians. In the FIDE Open, Ari Dale picked up a prize for the best performer in the 2000-2200 category. Interestingly, the prizes in the rating categories went to the player who had the best rating performance compared to their starting rating, rather than just on who scored the most points. Justin Tan picked up a prize in the junior category, although in this case it was awarded on total points.
There were also a couple of weekend events, and IM Gary Lane tied for first in the second of these events, with 4.5/5. And if that wasn't enough chess, there were daily Blitz events, in which a number of Australian players, including IM John-Paul Wallace took part.
If you wish to wade through the crosstables of the various events, then follow the links on the left hand side of the tournament website.

The very crux of your writing whilst sounding reasonable

in the beginning, did not really settle well with me personally after some time.
Someplace throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while.
I still have a problem with your jumps in logic
and you would do well to fill in those breaks.

In the

event you can accomplish that, I would definitely
end up

being impressed.
