We are guaranteeing $300 for first prize, but that is all we are guaranteeing. Considering how small this event is looking like being, don't expect very much prize money.

MCC has made a commitment to trying to increase numbers in our smaller weekenders - that is why we have the guaranteed first prize. However we don't want to be running tournaments at a loss, so I would expect most of the prizes to be very small - that is, if we don't get many more players. If we get a surge of entries in the next day or two, the prizes may be a bit bigger.

I would be very happy if we got 20 players in this tournament. It clashes with the Australian Junior Champs, the Oceania Zonal Champs and the Wednesday games have put some players off. That said, hopefully there are 20 people willing to play...

ER
21-01-2011, 02:04 PM
Actually I just thought of something which you might find silly but I 'll say it anyway!
If we can attract a No. of Allegro players to play in the weekender, we can have a break somewhere in the middle of the week and play all in the Allegro as well. We can make this weekender a tremendous chess event.
I am willing to play in an Allegro any day of the week!
This is only a suggestion and not to be considered as a serious proposal!

Lekkas is very dangerous! Positionally he is not that strong but tactically he is one of the sharpest players at MCC so when he gets an attack he is almost unstoppable. I would be really scared to be on a recieving end of his attack even without time handicap :(

Hi all

The first round has begun, with Frank Lekkas sleeping in and taking a half point bye! We are still happy to take late entries if anyone can get down here for the second or third round, as the tournament is very small (13 players only). Here is the draw for round 1...

Ashlock vs Baron
Jager vs Bekker
Renzies vs Dragicevic
Urban vs Hughes
Kolak vs Dowling
Mortensen vs Feaine

Lekkas - .5 point bye

Damien (Feaine) blundered a piece and it was allover. He has some original idead but he needs to be careful with his tactics. Listen who's talkin' hehe! :eek: BTW he played an early Maroczy Bind (is it still a MB after 1.e4 c5 2. c4?) I remember someone played this opening against me donkey's years ago at Peter Parr's Chess Centre in Sydney and it was a draw!

Interesting draw - JAK on board 2 ahead of Jager and Dragicevic.

My game with Jager was absolutely crazy and it went for 80 moves or so. I was probably lost...then winning then drawing than won. Spectators were entertained by the unusual material inbalance (even though i think both of us made quite a few mistakes)

Hi JaK,

Your reputation precedes you!

This morning, our Danish chess expert Henrik Mortensen said to me:
"Gary, you are doing very well. You are only 1/2 point behind JaK!"

I explained "Er, I think I'm actually higher rated that JaK".

He replied with something like "Oh no, That's not possible.
.. his forum posts are much stronger than yours!"

Now, with all other final round games quickly decided or drawn,
JaK is fighting out a good position against Jesse Jager.

Cheers,

Gary :-)

Michael Baron has won the event ahead of a very strong albeit, small field. Baron had wins against Dragicevic, Jager, Urban and Dowling, only conceding a draw against Danish visitor Henrik Mortensen in round 6. It didnt matter though as he won the event with a round to spare! 4 players came equal second and Gary Bekker won the rating prize. Overall, a very enjoyable tournament to run, with a friendly atmosphere and no disputes whatsoever!

Henrik, I don't think I can make it for the Allegro but don't forget we have the Blitz championship on Sunday!
As for the Bxf4 instead of Rxf4 I agree! It was a most enjoyable game for me anyway!
What about Bxf7 :(

Of course, that should have been played before it actually was!
oh ok hold on, I know what you mean! Bx7 now and not one move after that yeah?

What other side??

Anyway, I'm not coming to watch people play blitz... And even pay 5 $ for it...

Yesterday I became lunch so late, so I couldn't get the Allegro in time, but maybe next saturday(!)
