The first leg of the Big Board match was played at norths on Tuesday night. I don't have all the scores but I can report that over approx 40 boards norths take a 9 point lead into the second leg at St George in October. GM Zhao played Board 1 for St George and FM Malcolm Stephens played Board 1 for norths. Before long (and maybe already) either Bill G or Rincewind (NSCWCA Ratings Officer now) will no doubt have the full list of results. Norman Greenwood told me that the chief area where norths was dominant was in the 1800 - 1600 rating range. Charles Zworestine (St G) and Norman G (norths) jointly ran the night very efficiently.

There were 48 boards, the final score was 28.5:19.5. Only board 1 and board 26 (Anton was raised to get a better match up) had rating difference in favor of St George. Every other single board was in favor of North. The difference was gradually deacreasing from about 300 points (on board 2) to about 100 points on the last boards. So on average it was probably about 150+ rating points difference.

Thanks, Barry for the full list. I left before the night finished so did not know quite a few results.

Geeze, things are rough when Charles is Board two for St George. :( St George should be happy they are only nine points behind.

Oh well, not that St George has anything to prove. They owned the grade matches a few years back, inlcuding winning every grade a few years back.

(Yes I know the U1400 was equal first...;) )

Hi Lee. Where are you playing these days? Its time for another Forace - Adams classic!

Maybe there should be an Australian Club Championship! (If there is already I've never heard of it...)

Maybe there should be an Australian Club Championship! (If there is already I've never heard of it...)

An attempt was made by Graeme Gardiner to get one going some years ago but it faded out after a short time. It was a face-to-face event which may have been regarded as too costly by the players. Perhaps an internet-based one could be tried though a similar attempt at inter-State internet matches more recently also has fallen by the wayside.

Many years ago inter-State telex matches were quite popular but they too have long since stopped. Perhaps the current social climate militates against team competitions.
