Congratulations again to Robert Smith for becoming the 2nd Australia player to win a FISTF tournament, 15 years after Gary Hosie's triumph in the Australian Grand Prix. Well done Robert! On the pictures, Robert was wearing the green subbuteo t-shirt during the Challenger and the yellow jersey during the Satellite. Great job!!!

The Singapore association hosted two tournaments this week-end. Besides the great field of local players, representatives from Hong Kong, Malaysia and Australia were taking part. In the Satellite, Den Mulia confirmed he's still the best local player as he beat Rob Smith (Australia) in the final. Smith was in a great shape though as he won the other tournament of the week-end, beating Den Mulia in the semi-final and Tan Kok Wee in the final. This is the first international victory for Australia! Let's hope many more will follow and hopefully the next victory will be celebrated after a tournament held in Australia.

There was some action last saturday at Brett Davis's place in Penrith (Sydney) as Mike Newton and Steve Dettre paid a visit to have some games. Steve beat Brett (2-0) in the first game. Brett learned a lot from his opponent and he knows the offside rule by heart now (!) before Mike beat Brett 6-1. In the last game, Steve beat Mike (1-0). There should be another meeting again in december, probably at Steve's work, as it is more roomie and in a more central location. All players in the area are welcome to join.
