A hearty congratulations on behalf of the club and it's members to new MCC Champion FM Dusan Stojic. Dusan took out his first MCC title last night defeating IM Guy West 3-1 in a 4 game play-off. For the 70 or so people who watched the first ever Australian match broadcast online by webcam (or came in person) the 4th game took on a familiar feel with West gaining an early initiative and Stojic growing devastatingly accurate as the game wore on. Needing a final round win with white to force a rapid West showed that he can play just about anything and after 13 moves in the Barry Attack white had achieved a potentially decisive position: (check out the line with 13. h5!, Qc8, 14. Nxc6, Qxg4?? or 13. h5!, Qc8, 14. Nd7!)

Doing to them as a player what he's doing to them as a President- Grant Szuveges and the MCC are attacking with a superior force!
