Alaric - Hiarcs

Harvey Williamson on the game [7] [8]:

A draw was not enough we had to win so when we got into the Father type position I changed contempt to the value of 1 pawn this obviously messed things up. But we had to win to get 13/14 to be = 1st with Rybka. In round 14 we get by sods law the worst opening of the tournament.
