Great to hear JaK will be making the pilgrimage south but I can't make it to the Open this year, sorry :(

I have little idea of the fields at this stage but will be emailing the usual suspects shortly.

Hi Kevin. As you know, Guy and I were keen to come down for this but we'll have to give it a miss unfortunately as we are no longer able to come down that weekend. We still plan to visit Hobart for a chess event so hopefully we can do that sometime in the next year. I've already found the hotel I want to stay at!

Hope it all goes well.

No problems. Based on recent field sizes down here I wouldn't expect a lengthy queue!

Graham Richards collects another round 1 upset; that's blown his Swiss Gambit for the ratings prize for this one. :lol:

Elliott and I had a tough game with opposite side castling and so on, will be interesting to look at it in depth later. Once queens went off I seemed to be better but it still wasn't straightforward.

Not sure yet what happened with Law or indeed whether he was an entry at all (I got a cheque made out to HICC addressed to me but without an entry form.)

Great venue, fantastic hospitality, friendly and very relaxed conditions.
Mainlanders are encouraged to make Tasmanian tournaments a must in their calendar!
Unfortunately I can't make the blitz tournament tonight due to social obligations!
Gotta run now see you all later.
Actually, chances are that i am extending my stay here but I hope I will be able to make it at Box Hill's tournament next Friday!
If not, I will let you know by Wed Captain!

Kevin Bonham and Denis McMahon are the joint 2011 Tasmanian Blitz Champions. Denis has been working in the state for about a year which makes him eligible. Bonham previously tied for the title in 2004 but has never won it outright.

As usual with blitz all kinds of strange things occurred, including:

* McMahon beating Ross George from a queen down in a time scramble after Ross ran out of time with one opposing blocked pawn still uncaptured.
* A game where the mating move was illegal but the "mated" player accepted the result not noticing the illegality (had he noticed he could have claimed a draw).
* Mason Carter bashed out something diabolical from his home preparation against Neil Markovitz and won very decisively.
* Kevin Bonham not just held to a draw but lucky to draw against junior Matthew Barnes (and also lucky to win against Bradley Vince who made an illegal move against him while a pawn up).

Great to hear you are enjoying yourself JaK. A pity I can't play this time.

My pick is for KB to win yet another Tassie Open title with Mason as the dangerous spoiler.

I was expecting it and was just going to play 53.Rh6. He actually can't even save the d-pawn then because ...Rd7 54.Ng4 Rd8 (forced) 55.Nf6+ Kf8 55.Rh8+, and swap rooks then g6 will queen.

I only just saved my game with Nigel - was pushing for an edge in the late middlegame and missed a nasty reply, had to go a pawn down, managed to find a swindle that still only got me a very tough ending with minor piece for two pawns.

Correct - I was entering the Lightning crosstable in a great hurry last night and forgot to label it as such to avert confusion for those poor souls who could not figure out for themselves that something with nine rounds in it was not the Open.

Carter - Bonham was headed for a draw when Mason tried something that didn't work. Frame - Chadwick a long draw, Nigel had N+2P for B+P for a long time.

I didn't feel that my position was all that strong during the game but Fritz (which has the benefit of not requiring sleep in order to play chess) thinks I was actually just about winning. Anyway I was happy with a draw to at least tie for open #8.

17.Rad1 with black just marginally better (according to it) after ...Nxd3 18.cxd3 and either 18...Qc5 or 18...Nd6.

Graham Richards collects another round 1 upset; that's blown his Swiss Gambit for the ratings prize for this one.

He won it anyway. There are two things Graham really likes in weekenders and the first one is scoring upset wins against the big guns in round one and the other one is winning ratings prizes. This is the first time he's managed both in the same event. Needs to watch out though, beating Neil is not a good way to stay below 1500. :lol:

Eight. At some stage I decided that Otto Weber's record of thirteen Tas Championships was clearly way beyond me so I would try to see how many of the other one I could collect. A few more and it may become a record nobody else will ever beat let alone actually care much about. :lol:


and 2. Given that air travel out of Tassie is out of action, will JaK be playing in the Hobart Weekender? ;)

He's here for another week and a bit travelling around so who knows. It was great to have him down here for this one and he seems to be enjoying the trip.

I think Black could build up an attack after move 15. The mistake was surrendering the centre instead of 16... Ba7. Then Black could continue as in the game and improve his position, while it's hard for White to generate counterplay.

I'm unsure it makes a huge difference but it does give black some different strategic options. Most of the sorts of things I did in the game I could have done anyway. (That said my play in the game was quite conservative anyway - 18.Nc3 which can't be played if he hasn't swapped pawns may be stronger than Ng3)

I can't play Bf4 (obviously) without the pawn exchange but I can play Qd3 first then Bd2 which is more solid anyway. One difference here is that he may have the idea of ...Nf6 and ...Rxg3 getting e4 but he will probably drop either the a-pawn or the h-pawn in the process of executing this. Still may be good for a drawable ending for black.

I also can't play Qc3 but that was an (over)conservative move anyway; by that stage I have play on the q-side without a Q swap whether the centre swap has happened or not.

An interesting plan that is made possible by not trading in the centre is shown here:

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bb5 Bc5 5.0-0 d6 6.h3 Bd7 7.d3 h6 8.Ne2 a6 9.Bc4 b5 10.Bb3 Na5 11.c3 Nxb3 12.axb3 Qc8 13.Kh2 g5 14.d4 g4 15.hxg4 Nxg4+ 16.Kg1 Ba7 [Game continuation 16...exd4 17.cxd4 Bb6 18.Ng3 Qb7 19.Bf4 0-0-0 20.Qd3 Rdg8 21.b4 h5 22.Nh4 Kb8 23.Ra3 Bc8 24.Rfa1 Qc6 25.Ngf5 Re8 26.f3 Ne5 27.Qc3 Qxc3 28.bxc3 Nc4 29.R3a2 Bb7 30.g3 Ka7 31.Kf1 Ra8 32.Ng2 Kb8 33.Nge3 Nxe3+ 34.Bxe3 Kc8 35.Kf2 Kd7 36.d5 Bxe3+ 37.Kxe3 Rag8 38.Rh2 Rg5 39.f4 Rgg8 40.Rah1 c6 41.Kd4 cxd5 42.exd5 Rc8 43.Ne3 Rc7 44.Rxh5 Rhc8 45.Rc1 Rg8 46.g4 Bc8 47.g5 Ke8 48.Rch1 Ke7 49.Rh8 Rg7 50.R8h7 Rxh7 51.Rxh7 Kf8 52.f5 Bxf5 53.Nxf5 Rc4+ 54.Kd3 Kg8 55.Rh4] 17.Ng3 Qb7 18.Qd3 0-0-0 19.Bd2 Rdg8 20.b4 Kb8 21.Nh4 Bc6 22.d5 Qb6 23.Be1 Bd7 24.Ngf5 Line

...but there does not seem to be anything here for black and his lock on the white kingside does not look permanent.

Anyway I thought it was a fun game and a decent effort by Elliott given the rating difference and on a weekend when I wasn't playing too badly except for one awful mistake against Frame. Just as is so often the case with lower-rated players who attack, when the position shifts to one where careful passive defence is required the odds become very much in favour of the higher-rated player with the positional advantage.

That's true. It still seemed inadvisable for Elliot to surrender the centre, but your plan of planting Ns on h4 and f5 fits the concrete requirements of the position.

and thanks to Mary (a very sharp 4yo) who conveyed the above message to the Tasmanian chess community, last Tuesday at Devonport Maca's on my behalf using her mum's laptop! :)
I was amazed by the great spirit of friendship and hospitality exhibited by all throughout the tournament! Mr McMahon offered to let me stay at his house back in Devonport (a generous offer which I had to decline due to other arrangements) and was a friendly companion during the Open. I wish him and Mrs McMahon all the very best!
