  1. Congratulations to you all, UM sure this is a wonderful event!!! However, thats an interesting position yall analyzing,Black to move? Who’s better in that position? Sometimes the traditional chess science gets a little confusing when one tries to analyze with it , particularly when one is utilizing chessbase and they have an unclear symbol at the end of a line. Um not sure if the position is REALLY unclear or if the traditional scienctic methods (romantics, classics, hypermoderns, etc) simply doesnt apply to the position they find themselves in and perhaps it is beyond the current analytical tools they have available? Um “just curious”, perhaps you all may know or maybe ill email chessbase, Um sure they may have some understanding ,anyway nice tourny and look forward to seeing some new chess! Happy Birthday Susan!!! you using sprinkles on your cake! Peace.
