A great field of players in Johannesburg (South Africa)
In February, we had 21 tournaments (20 "regional" and 1 played with the old rules). Some of the events were great, many were played in Swiss system so that everyone had 4 games. In Italy, the club of Catanzaro had a fantastic tournament with 20 players. The guys in South Africa were very active with 8 players competing in Pretoria and 20 in Johannesburg where, for the very first time, team matches were organized between Johannesburg TFC and the Pretoria Flickers. We were glad to see action in Indonesia where the only foreign player, Majee Nolizam (Malaysia), took the honors. Cyprus finally held their third tournament of the season. Finally, the English club of Harrow held a tournament with the old rules and it was a success.

Singapore players had the visit of Frenchman Emmanuel Miranda
The number of ranked players is slightly down to 1624 and 41 nations are still involved.
