That's a very illustrious sounding title to have.

Defending Australasian Masters 2009 Champion Stephen Solomon will miss two first rounds of this year event due to his coaching commitments in Perth.

Stephen will play his first two rounds games later on next week.

Victorian International Masters Mirko Rujevic and James Morris very kindly agreed to play against Solomon later on next week giving International Master norm aspirants the opportunity to play one game per day as originally planned.

Big thank you to Mirko and James!

To achieve this we have to swap round 3 with round 1.

Levi-Cheng

Gorka-Steadman

Rujevic-Teichmann

Morris-Solomon ( postponed )




Round 2 pairings(December 5th)

I understand that Illingworth has not agreed to play Solomon at a later date - which would involved playing two games in a day - so the draw may need to be redone or rounds switched.

It was a serious mistake by the organisers to announce the pairings without checking that the players due to play Solomon in the first two rounds would agree to play a double round on a single day.

I hope Ian is not barred from this board. It was good for him to pick up this discrepency which enabled it to be rectified.

Why oh why is it so attractive to whinge about organisers? What possible positive result could you hope to get from whingeing?
Just a thought: do you hear Zhao whingeing about organisers? Or Smerdon? Or Xie? Or Johansen? Or ...? Is it just a coincidence that they're successful players and charming people?
In life coaching we say: how you perform in one area of your life is probably how you perform in many other areas of your life. To put it bluntly, if you're a loser on chesschat, you might like to ask yourself if you're also a loser at the board and/or in life.

antichrist's post is largely a direct (albeit sloppily presented, as per usual for antichrist) quote of a public post made by GM Ian Rogers on another forum.

The only part of antichrist's post that was new content was:

Nice bishop ending by Carl. When it first arose I thought Black could hold it by blockading one pawn on black, winning it, then giving up bishop for the other, but it turns out this is not the case as the KBP v KB ending that results is won for white.

Just a one-move blunder (perhaps fatigue-generated!) in an ending that had otherwise been drawn for a very long time. But black reaps the rewards of playing on to try to win it when many others would have agreed a draw much earlier.

This tournament is hard work! Thanks to Max for delaying today's game by 30 minutes to let me finish work, and thanks also to Vlad for agreeing to the same for Friday's game.

I'm blogging (http://gorkachc.blogspot.com/) about the event, though it is a highly personal account as I don't have much time for anything else.

Crosstable can be found at http://www.chessvictoria.netfirms.com/2010_australian_masters_2.htm

Teichmann is leading the norm charge with 4/5; for Illingworth, Smirnov and Cheng on 3 it is still possible but they'll need lots of wins.

Is PGN for round 4 anywhere? Carl's blog says four queens were briefly on board in Steadman-Rujevic.

Round 4 was played away from the DGT boards in a side room. I know Leonid had a full days work today before he arrived at Box Hill CC, so perhaps he'll get the round 4 games published soon. :)

Go Max! An IM norm here would be a terrific start to his gap year playing chess. Also, go Vlad! Max and Vlad can't play each other again here - they played in Rd 1 - a defeat Max has bounced back from well. So, go NSW!

I second that! Max as well as Vlad who have won major tournaments in the past in Melbourne, are very popular here! :clap:
I didn't know Max, who is a very polite and nice youngster, had taken a year off to improve at chess! That's dedication! I hope he does well and the gap year does't have a negative effect on his studies!
So GO NSW but also good luck to ALL participants! Play your best, enjoy the rest of the games and the titles will come! :)

Can someone point me to the schedule for the remaining games for the Masters? I can't find it on the CV website. When I go to the Australasian Masters page and links provided on this forum and the other forum all I get is a list of players, no crosstable, no schedule... so what am I missing?

Thanks.

Does anyone know if any games will be live this afternoon ?

Quite okay and no complaint if there isn't just means I won't head home early to watch them.

Only 2 now vying for IM norm:
Bobby who has black v Solomon and white v Illingworth.
Erik who has black v Morris and white v Smirnov.How do you rate their chances?
Firstly, isn't Bobby Cheng already an IM?
Secondly, a comment on Teichamnn - Illingworth. FWIW, from my albeit limited knowledge of the Sokolski/ Polish/ Orang Outan (my favourite name), and also on general principles, 2... Bxb4 is a small mistake. A central pawn is generally worth more than a wing pawn. However, a number of old genral openings books, such as MCO/ BCO and even NCO, do appear to suggest the line as a "main" one for Black (insofar as anything in 1 b4 can be called main). It should not be.
Bad luck Max ( recover well in the last rounds please) and good luck to Erik in his quest for another IM norm. (I do have a bit of a soft spot for anyone who plays 1 b4 regularly, as I used to myself.)

I think I can answer these and get it at least 1.5/2 :cool:

Firstly, Bobby Cheng is an FM (and a World Champion!) but not an IM. Are you thinking of IM James Morris instead?

Secondly, 2...Bxb4 (after 1.b4 e5 2. Bb2) is considered to be OK because after 3.Bxe5 White will probably opt to use a tempo to retreat the bishop and, after a subsequent ...d5, Black often has good chances of getting central pressure down the d and e files.

One of my favourite games in this line is a crushing win as Black by FM Jonathan Sarfati (maybe against Hilton Bennett?). Unfortunately I'm not too sure how to find it as I haven't figured out how to use ChessBase Light (sad!!) but hopefully some obliging soul will dig it out for us.

All very interesting. Thanks Tony and Garrett. Tony is right of course, including on IM James.... 1..b5 for Black is seen occasionally. Erik would probably regard it as quite playable.

Pretty much anything is "playable" if you understand it and your opponent doesn't. Erik's games with his specialty 1.b4 in this event have been showing that very nicely.

There is a line 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 b5 that is completely reputable by the way (thread here (http://chesschat.org/showthread.php?t=4357))- now and then seen from top level GMs.

Max had a nice win yesterday v Mike Steadman. I watched quite a bit of it live and predicted he would play Qh5 and sac on e6 (in the shoutbox) and he did both. I think the sac was winning. Especially since once e file opened, Bishop on e7 was very vulnerable. Mike played O-O-O to try to minimise his losses but then faced a mighty pawn on f7 along with open e file and the R came to e8 winning significant material.
You can still see the game on the live boards at the Box Hill web site.

Yes, unfortunately they need 6.5 and none of them can get to that.

In Steadman-Morris after 31 moves a very complicated endagame has arisen with players having two rooks each plus opposite colour bishop and 4 pawns each.

In Rujevic-Levi game

looks like very unclear crazy game to me...

Black---- Kb7,Bd1 pp.a5,b4,c5

white to play...

Hi Pres, first of all congratulations for running this excellent tournament which (despite some initial whinging :P) turned out to be a very interesting and successful event! :clap: :clap:
I am also very impressed by your PGN improvement! :clap:
However re the above position, what do you think of Black's connected passed Pawns. Aren't they sufficient compensation of the piece?

I know your question was addressed to Leonid but I don't think they are. At this stage it's unclear if they will even live. Even if they do they look easily blockaded and in the worst case that white actually has to give up the bishop for them, white is still a pawn up on the kingside.

Great job on the updates Leonid!

Great job on the updates Leonid!

Fritz seems to think otherwise. The pin on the bishop, the threat of back rank mate and the connected passed pawns make the position equal!

Ditto from me. A terrific effort by both. Solo winning the event with a round to spare is particularly impressive and to cap it off he won his last round too!

Bobby Cheng is obviously a very talented junior and will go far. (It must be the NZ connection!)

I really enjoyed playing in this tournament this year, so nice one Leonid and the Box Hill CC for making sure the tournament ran smoothly. And to all the players, good work on making this a highly competitive, but very friendly tournament:)

Thanks very much everyone. I have annotated my game with Teichmann on chessbase. How do you get it here on FEN? I thought the instructions used to be in Help and Feedback but can't find it there now.

That was my best performance since the IM tournament in Auckland in 1997 where I scored 8.5/9 and a 2799 performance.

Instructions are in News/Announcements:

http://chesschat.org/forumdisplay.php?f=32

Note that FEN is now only used to post static positions. To post a non-standard starting position then a move sequence see the "PGN Viewer (Non-Standard Starting Position)" thread.

I think it is a simple matter of having the game open in ChessBase.

Go edit -> copy.

Go to post a reply in this thread.

Go right-click -> paste.

That's how I did it with the Sarfati-Bennet game in this thread.

Thanks !

I forgot to mention the [pgn] tags to make the board appear.

I am not sure at this stage why the peices wont move on my board above (edit - in deleted post above).

I am busy at the moment but will get back here later if no-one else knows the answer in the meantime (edit - yes I am now in trouble).

Evaluations turning into dollar signs etc is a common problem. In Fritz and presumably other chessbase stuff there is an output setting you can choose that stops this happening. If I find/remember details soon I will post them.

From memory SCID also has the option to export annotations in $# format or !? format as a checkbox on the export to PGN dialogue. I'm not so familiar with chessbase products but one would assume it would be either in the preferences or a checkbox on the export dialogue.
