As you see in the list of admin staff, this year Australia's Manuel Weeks takes over from Stewart Reuben as TD. But there's another admin member that caught my attention, and given the recent discussions in Queenstown about the slow update of the PGN file, I thought it interesting. Gibraltar has a guy named Henning Friese who acts as "games inputter". Other organisers should take note.
Anyway, we already have some hot action from round 1. Here's a top seed nearly losing his head. What would you play as white?
Position after 23...Kg8
The game eventually ended a draw thanks to white's incorrect continuation later on.
