Peter Fenwick or John-Paul Leko?

As I was reading the Forum section of the latest New in Chess Yearbook (#76) I discovered, much to my surprise, a letter from John-Paul Fenwick in which he outlined crushing a hapless ICCF E-Mail Jubilee opponent (my words) via an innovation in the Breyer. It's nice to see Australian chess influencing play at the upper echelons of our fine game, as Peter Leko subsequently brought out the "Fenwick Variation" with a similar result against Nigel Short at Wijk aan Zee 2005. Nice work J-P!
NIC Yearbook #76 has a distinctly Australian flavour, as it also contains another letter (together with a nice photograph) from Max Illingworth.
