Gary Lane took part in the 44th Doeberl Cup held in Canberra over the Easter Weekend.  Gary should be used to a seven round tournament held over the four day holiday having won many WECU Open Championships over the same period.  However, this time he was not so fortunate and finished down the field as did GM Ian Rogers.  The winner, after a long lay-off was Igor Goldenburg.

Gary brought off a nice finish in his game against Wright.  From the following position:

(1) Lane,G (2440) - Hu,J (2073) [B17]
