Player Stats Updated

The player statistics database has been updated after the recent results from the SA Open. Feel free to take a look to see who have been the top performing players over the last 12 months

Updated Statistics to 27 Feb 2007

As usual, any comments and suggestions are encouraged. Note that some of the tables have minimum game requirements, e.g. that you have played 10 games as black over the last 12 months. So some of our top players who are not that active may be missing from some of the tables. This is somewhat unfortunate, so any suggestions on how to overcome this would be welcomed.

Directions to Soweto Club (hosts of the SA Open)

These are the directions from most places around Joburg and Pretoria, for those of you coming from elsewhere, at some stage your directions will probably fit in with these (e.g. you’ll already be coming from Main Reef Rd for example)

* Follow the N1 South
* Take the Maraisburg offramp, and turn right (Maraisburg Rd = the R24)
* Carry on some distance with the R24, it changes names a few times (to 10th, then Maud, then Lola, then Kathleen, then Hamberg)
* Turn left into Westlake Rd (the R564)
* Turn right into Main Reef Rd (the R41)
* Turn left into Roodepoort Rd (the M77, also called Dobsonville Rd on some maps)
* Carry on some distance and Turn Right into Main Rd
* The venue is on the corner of Luthuli Rd and Main Rd, the Kopanong community centre.
