Just letting the wider chess community know that this event has started - over seven Tuesdays from 7.30pm at the club. Games are 60 mins and a small increment per move, 1 game per night. Most of the first two rounds are now completed, with quite a few upsets, if ratings is used as a guide:)

The first round draw produced some exciting match-ups. Carla went down after a good fight against her coach, Dr G, but the marathon game of the round was between Ruihong and Ethan. Ruihong showed that her time off last term has not left her chess rusty. The game illustrates the power of two bishops versus two knights when they combine to work the long diagonals.

All the match-ups in the fourth round of our club championship are interesting and a number of the results could prove to be crucial in the run up to deciding the first, second and third placegetters for both adults and juniors. But we will have to wait until Tuesday of next week (18th Aug) for these games to be played out.

This Tuesday we have a 'rest break' from the tournament for social chess followed bythe Club AGM. Here is the draw for Round 4 of this seven round contest (with progress scores in backets):

Our coach, Grant (alias Dr G), hit the front on 4 wins with a convincing win over the club secretary, Paul, last Tuesday but the Treasurer, Stephen, is hot on his heels on 3.5 after winning against Scott. They meet this Tuesday for the showdown! There are three juniors level on 3 points - Damar, Ethan and Ruihong - but scores are close all round.Here are results thus far from Round 4 and Standings with two games postponed:

Everything was thrown into confusion, both by the wild weather and by the results of Round 5 thus far. The stormy weather caused a number to phone in asking for their game to be postponed (and they were).

Of the games that were completed, a notable draw was gained by Stephen against the scoreboard leader, Grant. This leaves a slight possibility of others catching up to him in the two remaining rounds.

Also interesting is the tidal wave of juniors looming just behind. Denise is leading the pack on 3.5 but among the postponed games are Damar V Ruihong and Aidan V David. And then there is young Ethan who really stretched Paul and is sitting, with Jonathan, ready to pounce on 3.

The postponed games will need to be played this Tuesday (1st Sept) at 6pm just prior Round 6. Here are results thus far:

After six hard-fought rounds it all comes down to the last round to be played this Tuesday (8/9). Dr G leads by half a point on 5.5 followed by Paul on 5. Scott and Frits are next on 4.5 with Scott taking on the leader after his sixth round escape in time trouble to defeat the promising junior, Denise.

It is a five-way race for the honours in the Junior championship. Ethan and Ruihong are on 4, followed by Josiah, Denise and Carla on 3.5. Ruihong has a tough final match against Stephen, which leaves the others up against each other. Another four juniors are all equal on 3 points and this shows how close the competition has been.

Next week the prizes for best game between two adults, best game between two juniors, and best game between an adult and a junior will be awarded.

Here are the results of Round 6, followed by the Standings and the final round draw:

In a nail-biter final round full of surprises Dr G, despite being the exchange down, drew his game against the rapidly improving Scott Humphreys in a blocked position. When Frits Van Scheepen won his hard-fought game against Paul Bearup, who gifted a queen in time pressure, this meant that Grant Lambert became Ranges Club Champion for 2009 on 6 points, a half point ahead of Frits.

The Ranges Junior Champion title was secured by 8 year old Ethan Lim who ended on 5 points after winning against Carla Johansen. His sister, Denise Lim, won a mammoth struggle against Josiah Hilbig to come second on 4.5 and another girl to perform well during the tournament was Ruihong Lu who gained third place in the juniors on 4 points, just ahead of last year's junior champion, Damar.

Here are the final results:
