Due to a huge potential sponsorship deal, the City Of Melbourne Open and the MCC Open have been swapped around this year.

I cant say too much about this sponsorship deal and it hasnt happened yet - but by swapping the events around we are giving ourselves every possible chance. We may not get it anyway, but at least this way it is possible. I wont be saying anything more about it though.

As for the ramifications of the swap, there will be no issues. The two events are both 9 rounds on Monday nights, same time controls, same entry fees etc.

Please come along and play in our 2nd MCC Grand Prix event of the year!

I didn't say that. I said I was struggling to find an opening where black can play for a win from the opening because of the two draws as black 1 day after another, especially the Sunday game which was = after move 10 and remained equal up until move 30 where the draw was agreed. Don't put words in my mouth please.

I wasn't complaining about the ability to equalise Michael.
Ok you can play for a win, doesn't mean you will win. Features like pawn structure and activity of white's pieces usually cause a draw to appear.

That being said, it's time to go pawn grabbing.

That being said it wasn't necessarily the game that was drawn that upset me, but I wasn't happy with my position out of the opening and it we went quite deep into theory. This is the Monday game by the way. The Sunday game was always going to be drawn after move 10.

Hilarious discussion of your game with Kaplan on Carl's blog. When reading your interview about the ''theoretical sacrifice'' ...could not stop laughing... why spend so much time preparing an opening. Time is better spent on studying general chess principles. 3 easy ways to beat Kaplan without doing any opening study 1) as black let him play kings indian - exchange on e5 and win endgame 2) play 1.e4 let him play Pirc exchange on e5 and win endgame 3) If you are black after 1.d4 play c5 and he can not play Bf4....if not Bf4...what else can he do :).
Memorizing long opening lines is a waste of time!

And this is my point If I had actually looked at that line before hand I would have known what to do after Rxh5. White's not worse after that move. The problem was that I didn't know the opening lol. If general principals were enough for that position, Bd3/Bc4/Ng5 would all be candidate moves when the only move that doesn't give black an advantage is none of those.

General principles should be enough to beat Kaplan :). Why go into such line where knowledge is required? There are plenty of easy ways to win

A groundbreaking initiative in chess journalism! Keep up the good work!

Yes, great coverage by Carl. And some very interesting games from all accounts - Beaumont v Rujevic would be very interesting to see.

Well done to James Morris, who is in great form and would need to trip up badly in order to not to win the tournament. I'm sure a few will hope he doesn't relent and will seek to complete a 100% win-rate.

Also congratulations to Damian Feaine for recording a maiden win at classical time controls - well done.

Paul Cavezza deserves praise for his attack. Stunning blow of 24...Nxd5!! looked decisive and fully exploited Kaplan's lack of defensive presence on the K-side.

Dale v Zelesco was another great game. One senses that although Ari was "ahead" 2 rooks for a queen, Karl was the one with the initiative as Ari could not make much use for his knight. A draw seem to be a fair result.

The only negative was Frank Lekkas' default. Let's hope he's not unwell or under stress (maybe from exams or such) and can play out the tournament.

The one game of mine is the one I played horribly in...I'm starting to see where Frank is coming from when he gripes about this :P

I currently have a pgn file of games played on Mondays, with 103 games, 14 of which have J. Morris playing :)

I intend to grow this file and will happily pass it on to any member of the MCC :)

Really good game between Hain and Tan. If that queen sac variation was played, it would of been a brilliant finish

Agreed, and it shows just how difficult it is for players to win these Monday night events, when a 1600 rated player can produce chess like that!

Yes, everyone only has their bad games/losses published.

What I want to know is, who is the lucky player who gets all his good games/wins published instead, I have never met him!

The calibre of the game seemed to be of a higher quality than their ratings suggested. Shows how high the standard of chess in vic is
