View Full Version : 2011 Gosford Weekender - now in SEPTEMBER

15-03-2011, 11:44 AM
Yes fellow players, you read right - the annual October event (which had even drifted to November of recent years) is now booked in Sept 10th and 11th - same place - Central Coast Leagues Club , just a radically different date.

A further slight change may be to have 3 rounds on Saturday instead of 4 - since the restaurant next door always seems to have a birthday or some such when some roudy noise seems to permeate for almost a half-hour, if you don't care of such things, or have sterling concentration abilities - or have earmuffs then let the organisers know here.

I am playing....

Going to Be about 20 minutes late for first round however....

The moving man pair me for first round and I'll play with less time.

This is because I either have a 4.50am or a 6.50am train. The 6.30 train gets into gosford at 10.12.......

Was sac happy on sunday. Here are two off the top of my head

Parker - N. Brown A rather dubious attack which, with the wrong move order played, let to my attack crashing through.

1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 b6 3.e3 Bb7 4.Bd3 e6 5.b3 Be7 6.Bb2 d5 7.Nbd2 Nbd7 8.O-O O-O 9.Ne5 Nxe5 10.dxe5 Nd7 11.Qh5 h6 12.f4 Nc5 13.Rf3 Nxd3 14.cxd3 Kh7 15.Rh3 Ba6 16.Nf3 Bxd3 17.Ng5+ Kg8 18.e4 Bxg5 19.fxg5 Bxe4 20.gxh6 Bg6 21.Qg4 gxh6 22.Rxh6 Kg7 23.Bc1 Qe8 24.Bg5 f6 25.exf6+ Rxf6 26.Bxf6+ Kxh6 27.Qh4+ Bh5 28.Qg5+ Kh7 29.Qg7+ 1-0

Parker- O'Riordan

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e3 c5 5.Bd3 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 Qa5 7.Ne2 d6 8.O-O Nc6 9.f4 e5 10.fxe5 dxe5 11.Bd2 e4 12.Bc2 O-O 13.Ng3 Re8 14.Rxf6 gxf6 15.Nxe4 Kg7 16.Qf3 f5 17.Qg3+ Kh8 18.Nf6 Qd8 19.Qh4 Kg7 20.Qg5+ 1-0

until confirmed as joint winners it is either Trent or Alex - but until then ..

13-09-2011, 10:26 AM
:D Good work Trent!!!

13-09-2011, 03:24 PM
How is the winner of the trophy determined? Is it rating performance? Because if it is Trent's got it.

The NSWCA council have determined that :

largely since no tie-breaking procedures were decided upon nor announced

that Trent Parker and Alex Mehan jointly won the NSW Country Championship 2011

also in my view that as the farther away you get from the leading (or trailing) group (in a Swiss) the more 'unreliable' any system of tie-breaking is - that last bit is of course my view only

Congratulations you two
