The other Ashes

Forget the cricket (especially if you are an Australian), there is another UK v Australia rivalry to focus on. GM David Smerdon (local boy made good) is up against English GM Simon Williams in a 'deathmatch'.
A 'deathmatch' consists of an hour of G/5m, then and hour of G/3m and then an hour of G/1m. Each time control also has a 1 second increment, just to remind everyone this is internet chess. Based on previous matches there will be about 30 games, with the results of each game weighted equally.
The match starts at 9pm tomorrow (2 November) 3am 3 November! Canberra time (I'm guessing), and can be scene at
