We are thinking about organizing Australian Young Masters (AYM) in October in Sydney. Please see the information about AYM in 2006 to have an idea about this tournament:

http://www.netspeed.com.au/ianandjan/IansPage/YoungMasters/2006/Players.htm

The approximate starting date is straight after the Ryde-Eastwood Open, i.e. October 6. It is planned to be both ACF and FIDE rated event.

Juniors with ACF ratings 1600+ or FIDE ratings 1800+ interested in playing in this event should contact me via e-mail v.smirnov(at)econ.usyd.edu.au ASAP. It will be based in Sydney, juniors from other states are welcome.

It would be great to see this tournament happen again. I wish you all the best in the organisation of the tournament. Excellent work.

I want to enter, but my rating is too low.
Maybe, there could be a challengers division for Juniors with too low a rating.

I'd be interested in playing and I qualify because of FIDE rating, but I'm due for a playoff match with Joshua Lau on the 6 October, but maybe we could work something out to solve that problem.

Is this within school holidays?

Mischa
02-09-2009, 10:55 PM
this is the first week of the VIctorian school term
tho probably good for other states
Is your idea to encourage all kids from all over Australia?
If so we may need to re think the dates

What is the particular point of the event?

Maybe a Scheveningen-style event with young (under-rated) vs old (over-rated) would have a point.

But why not get all these young masters to play in the Australian Junior in Hobart?

Hi Misha,

That is a bit unfortunate. The term in NSW and ACT finishes on the 2-d of October. As the majourity of kids will be from NSW and ACT I do not think the dates could be changed.

It would be great if James could come. At the end of the day it is just one week off studies. He probably will be more than happy.:)

They will come to Hobart as well. The main point to give juniors a chance to play in round-robin events. As you can imagine it is completely different experience. The experience from the past is that all the juniors playing enjoy the AYM a lot!

School dates are available from http://www.dest.gov.au/portfolio_department/calendar_dates/school_term_dates_2009.htm

It seems that the tournament will be in the school holidays for ACT, NSW, SA and WA, but not QLD, VIC and TAS. A pity. If the tournament was held one week earlier then all states apart from Tasmania, which runs a 3 not 4 term year, are catered for. However I am guessing there a good reasons it is not being run a week earlier and a change is next to impossible.

Unfortunately there is a lot of "only one week off studies"
James is in year 10 so one week is a bit much.:(

To accomodate the players from Victoria and Queensland I think it would be a good idea to adjust the timing to include a weekend, so the kids from these states would only miss 3 school days. I am thinking about changing the dates to October 7-11.

Could you post some good games that occur on this thread. I'd like to see them.

How long would this tournament run? 3-5 days? Is there any chance that this tournament could start on the 7th? If not, then I won't be able to confirm my participation, because my playoff match really can't be moved again.

Thanks for yur quick reply Vladimir,

At first I didn't notice you were thinking of running it in October (during schooltime??) and so I assumed it would be on in Dec/Jan some time.

I think i would prefer it if it was kept on the 6-10 of October. I am most likely going to play in the Ryde Eastwood tournament as well, so if i was to stay in Sydney until the Australian Young Masters, i would miss those days of school anyway. Staying an extra day would mean possibly paying more accomodation. However I dont really mind if it suits everyone else :)

Vlad
03-09-2009, 07:52 PM
Sally, we will make all the effort possible so that you do not pay anything for accomodation.:)

It looks like too many people (including the arbiter Charles Z) strongly prefer it to be 7-11 October.

Sally94
03-09-2009, 07:53 PM

Yesterday there was NSWJCL meeting and unfortunately it looks like we have to stick with the original plan, which is October 6-10. I am sorry for any inconvinience.:(

Mischa
04-09-2009, 10:47 PM
:( then probably a no for James...(do we still get help with accommodation for the Ryde Eastwood?...please?)
What was the NSWJCL motivation for not changing the dates?

Vlad
04-09-2009, 11:09 PM
Actually there is another option...

NSWJCL was mostly concerned with the dates for the Yunior Masters because most of the NSW players are playing in the Yunior Masters, and there is a team event on the 11-th of October. So we can possibly have Yunior Masters on 6-10 October, while Young Masters and Girls Masters on 7-11 October.

Mischa

This is not fair. The major events in Australia (Australian Open, Juniors, Championship and zonals) are not run directly by the national body, but by state associations or clubs ussaully. Why cannot this be the case with these Australian Young Masters tournament?
AJCL president Charles Zworestine is involved in the running of the event and the Vlad has offered billeting to interstate players and is trying to get information to as many of them as possible. Appears like a national focused event to me. The school holiday problem is unfortunate, but it not Vladimirs fault holidays are not standardised accross Australia.

Congratulations!

I was in no way complaining about Vlad!!!
I think it is great that he is organising the event and billeting...he has put James up for us in the past enabling James to play in an event.
I was just lamenting that Vic kids will find it difficult because of the holidays.
Of course I'm not blaming Vad!!!

Maybe a Scheveningen-style event with young (under-rated) vs old (over-rated) would have a point.

But why not get all these young masters to play in the Australian Junior in Hobart?



That would be interesting. I really want to play in a junior ACF rated tournament, but I'm too low rated (and I'm sure I'm not the only one).
It would be awesome if there were a challengers or minor division open to U1600s. Please. Please. My JCL rating is not bad (750).
I should be around 1200 ACF but I've only played two NSW JCL champs.

Mischa
05-09-2009, 09:54 PM

Are they chick (no pun intended :P)ening out?
Vlad and the committee are doing their best to accommodate everyone, so there is NO EXCUSE!!!
Just go there and prove to them what you are made of!
You are not going to let them NSW and other State boys and girls cruise with the prizes while you are staying in Victoria following the games online!

Mischa
05-09-2009, 10:14 PM
Of course he will

It goes like this
it is inconvenient for the NSW kids to have it earlier and it is very difficult for the Vics and Queenslanders and TAssies to have it as it stands
I know that Vlad tried his best to have the dates moved
maybe we shold lobby the government to aim for consistancy
Oh hang on
the tourist industry would be annoyed

aransandraseg
05-09-2009, 10:20 PM
Ha ha. tourist Industry. I get it. Wait do I? :hmm:
Anyway lets try to sue the govt. and see what happens. i wander if they would ban Chess in Australia. I mean they don't really support chess like in some other countries. They don't even recognise chess.

Wait am I going way off topic?:uhoh:

Ok. I have an idea. Why don't you stage half the days on public holiday like queens birthday. :hmm: No. There'll be other big tournaments than. Hmm. Oh well. NSW is the host state (and the best) so it should be on NSW public school holidays.

So far we have the following juniors interested. I just want to stress that this is an invitation only tournament. In particular that means that once a particular subsection is full we can't accept entries anymore. Currently we are very close to getting 10 juniors in Australian Yunior Masters. We still have a bit of space in Australin Young Masters and Australian Girls Masters.

Young Masters

IM James Morris 2160, 2194 (FIDE) (hopefully)
Yi Yuan 2129, 2097 (FIDE)
Blair Mandla 2095, 2157 (FIDE)
Andrew Brown 1974, 2096 (FIDE)

Yunior Masters

Jack Ruan 1785, 1871 (FIDE)
Harry Ruan 1725, 1812 (FIDE)
Sally Yu 1715, 1841 (FIDE)

Anton Smirnov 1668, 1817(FIDE)
Jerry Xu 1568, 1861 (FIDE)

Is there any reason why you keep calling it Yunior Masters instead of Junior Masters?

For Australias chess standard to go up there needs to be more big tournaments.

aransandraseg
06-09-2009, 05:25 PM
BTW did you consider my challengers idea?

If there is any spare space right before the tournament you know who to call (or pm). I know my ACF is really really low, but my NSWJCL rating is pretty decent (721 on latest count [according to ratings officer]). I know JCL ratings are unreliable but I think I am under rated. I mean I've just gone up 84 and I've beaten almost all the 700s i've played.

Nicholas D-C
06-09-2009, 05:38 PM
For Australias chess standard to go up there needs to be more big tournaments.Australia does have its fair share of tournaments, e.g. Freytag Open, ANU Open, Doeberl Cup, SIO (if it continues), Elwood-Bendigo (although it was cancelled this year), Surfers Paradise, NSW Open, VIC Open, Melbourne Chess Club Cup, Australian Championships etc. The problem is that chess isn't as popular in Australia as Europe and Asia (even America), and there is not enough money to be made from becoming a professional.

aransandraseg
06-09-2009, 07:05 PM
couldnt agree more. There needs to be more big sponsors. For that chess needs to be more recognised. For that there needs to be some coverage by some news groups and more publicity. For that they're needs to be more funding. For that there needs to be sponsors.

For chess to really kick off in Australia it needs some funding. The funding will help get sponsors.

I reckon there needs to be more sponsorship oppurtunities. IDK. Who am I to talk. I am only just getting into chess. I reckon chess should be seen as more than just a board game in the eye of the public. I live in England from the age of seven to eleven (making me a British and Australian citizen:P ). i remember there was once a book shop signing for Karpov and there was a queue that was over 20m in length. We need something like that.


If you have any sort of life don't read this pointless ramble. If you've already read it, your life is just as sad as mine. :P :P :P

Vlad
06-09-2009, 08:00 PM
BTW did you consider my challengers idea?

Well, I have talked to Charles and he was very keen on NOT running any challengers events. Sorry, possibly the next year. At this stage we just want to revive the tournament. Building up is the agenda for the future.

Hey guys id like to register my interest for the Young masters but just wondering whats the difference between the two is young like 2000+ or something? If not id prefer to go in young.

Also if James needs people to billet him an aspiring CM would be more than happy to billet him only if James still needs a billet.

Hey guys id like to register my interest for the Young masters but just wondering whats the difference between the two is young like 2000+ or something? If not id prefer to go in young.


Young is the top 10 we could possibly get. At this stage any juniors with ACF 1900+ are welcome.



Also if James needs people to billet him an aspiring CM would be more than happy to billet him only if James still needs a billet.

Great, thanks for doing that!

But why not get all these young masters to play in the Australian Junior in Hobart?QUOTE]

1. Quite a lot of these players will be playing in the Australian Juniors.

2. Some (or at least one XD) of the players is ineligible to play Aus Juniors because they are too old so they run these types of events to encourage the older players to keep playing. It's a good chance for some very competitive chess, and is also great for catching up with friends.

I think the Junior Masters is very wide open, probably they could all win the tournament. I don't know much about Peng Yu Chen, but winning the NSW juniors is a great result. From a biased SA perspective I hope Alistair Cameron wins it.

Well, given that the top two have a fair chance of being moved up to the big boys and girls, the rating difference between the top seed and the bottom seed would be just 157 points. In such an even field everybody has almost equal chance.

Ok. I guess I don't even get to voice my opinion without being hit by the tremondous backlash. Far out. I want to say something funny about communists but i am afraid that there will be a bigger backlash. Don't get me wrong. I don't dislike communism. I mean the ideal of equality sounds pretty good even though it is impossible to implement.

Anyway getting back on topic before I start talking about my theory of how France was on the brink of turning communist before Napoleon took power (I mean the bourgoise were all for an 'equal society':).

I think Peng-yu is capable of winning. I thought Peng-yu would beat Adrian and he did so, I was going to try doing that again to see what happened. Anyway, it's a very very close field, so there is no saying who's going to win it. All i know is a NSW player is going to win:D :D .

I tried to convince my parents to let me go, but they're concerned that I'm missing too much school due to chess - I miss 2 weeks over the exam period to go to Turkey for the World Youth, so I will end up having my exams in week 5 instead of 7. If I miss another week of school at the beginning of the term, I will have had 4 weeks to learn what everyone else learns in 7!

Also, I am going to France on an exchange year for 2010, so will be unable to go to the Aus Champs or Juniors. This means that probably my last tournament in Australia will be the MCC Melbourne Cup Weekender!

Hi Drug,
Anything has exemptions.
You see Daniel FIDE rating was estimated over 1800, one of his oponents did not arrive for the game, otherwise this rating above would be confirmed.
Daniel is only 10 Year old and his ratings is at the moment close to 1500 but he plays for 1600 rating player. If he would have a Father your strength, he would be until now 1800 ACF player.
Secondly, he is keen on chess and his Family.
I would like to ask you to take all these points in consideration.
Reward him with a wild card as Australian Tennis Open does!

Please see 2006 Masters for the information regarding round times, entry fees and prizes. The location is in Rockdale. Once Charles confirms that he booked the venue I will post the address. There will be no rest days. Some players can't come on particular dates, we try to accomodate them. Other that that it is 6-10 October for Junior Masters and 7-11 October for the other two tournaments.

Why is the 2 other tournaments on seperate days? if this is so... NSB might have problems in the NSW qualifying matches at St George Leagues Club held by Charles. This is due to the fact that Oscar and Jack both have to play their final round on the 11th of October in the Aussie Young Masters but our playoff is on the same day.

I will see what I can do. But as you can imagine at this stage chances are not very high.

This not a good answer to me.

You should be sending Daniel Lapitan an invitation without further questions, as a wild card entry. Daniel is on of the most promising juniors and for sure should be in. This should be fun for Juniors in the future:
Let's say, Daniel will say: " Hey I got a wild card entry, it is like a jump in the train in the last minute"
We should not ask us self: why we have only 4 Grandmasters.
You just used 2006 brochure without thinking if anything needs to be updated.

Daniel is definitely a talented player, but there are other talented players (in the rating bracket) who aren't playing. Daniel is Under 12 I believe? Maybe there should be an Under 12 masters as well, to give some of the younger, less experienced players a chance to compete.:hmm:

I find it interesting that for everyone who has a FIDE rating, that rating is higher than their ACF rating.

Nicholas D-C
30-09-2009, 04:27 PM
Most juniors are stronger than their ACF suggests, because they haven't played enough ACF-rated tournaments to build up from their starting ACF rating to their actual standard.

Most juniors are stronger than their ACF suggests, because they haven't played enough ACF-rated tournaments to build up from their starting ACF rating to their actual standard.

Lower starting rating on the ACF system is probably part of it. Many players don't play FIDE-rated events until they are already quite strong, so even though the FIDE system is not dynamic enough to deal with junior improvement, their start ratings will be higher. The ACF system is much more dynamic but if players are improving rapidly while not playing that many tournaments, it can still struggle to keep pace.

Another part of it is that there are a lot of overrated players around FIDE 1800-2100 as a result of the way FIDE used to handle its "rating floor" system. Back when the rating floor was FIDE 2000, it was common to have adults who were FIDE 2050 (or so) but only ACF 1800 (or so).
