Will the NSWCA be organising the event again next year?

They should!
The tournament was an absolute gem and it deserves to become a permanent feature in the Australian Chess Calendar.
They have all my moral (*) support!
(*) And to put my money where my mouth is, I am willing to participate in a collective effort to support the tournament financially!

Amen to that.

In an ideal situation, there would be sufficient sponsorship to ensure that an SIO appeal would not be needed.

Doble Amen - agre on both points.
Big thanks to bergil, trent, Dr Vasil T, Joshua C and the Parra CC team for organising an excellent Parramatta Chess Festival. And no disputes in either SIO or SIC to the best of my knowledge.
Congratulations to the winner, FM but now IM-in-waiting A Khamparia (India). Also to the no less than 7 players who finished second equal. See the SIO/ SICweb site for details.

It's a subtle reference to the Darryl Johansen interview in the fifth episode of the Chess Crazy Talk podcast. Either at the start or the end of the interview Darryl mentions that he is about to eat a cone pizza and has never tried one before.

Max Illingworth

Shaun Press told me today that the pairings will most likely be up at 1:30am tomorrow. In any case they will be available tomorrow morning.

The City of Sydney Lightning was won by IM Chongsheng Zeng on 8/9, with IM K Rathnakaran coming 2nd with 7.5/9 and IM P Karthikeyan finishing in 3rd with 7/9. Alana Chibnall and Alex Mendes da Costa would have shared the City of Sydney Lightning title (scoring 6/9 with several other players), except apparently there is no CoS Lightning title.

After managing to escape Byron Bay (what a shit hole! - I had to spend some time there twice in three weeks) and celebrate Easter in a more civilised place, I am in Sydney now where between business meetings, farewell parties and re-union get togethers I managed to visit the venue earlier today! I saw Shaun (busy) Sally, Trent, Kevin Brown, Berg, the Dales, Jack and Vlad. I played a friendly game vs a micro junior outside, he fell for a discovery mating attack hehe beat them while you can! The TV crew (from Ch 7's Today Tonight I think) were there concentrating on junior players! bye for now!

As I noted in the shoutbox, it looks like neither of their opponents showed up, so they were paired together. Otherwise they would win on forfeit but that is not appropriate, where avoidable, for an event with norm chances.

Curious too that the Canberra tourney seems to have pulled a lot more entrants than the Sydney one in spite of similar prize money - is Canberra that much more an exciting town than Sydney? :) And what's with the downloadable games on the SIO site? - they're only names and dates with no moves.

Me personally I have never played in SIO because of the city and I went as a spectator and didn't like the city too much and found it as an unsafe area. Quality of tournament is the same as Canberra though.

Canberra is the traditional place for Easter chess gathering for the last 50 years. Many players are finding too hard to participate in two tournaments in a row for many reasons.

Comparing starting lists for Doeberl 2012( Premier division) and SIO 2012 you can see that in Canberra---21 Victorians have participated( 7 in top 30) and in Sydney only 6 Victorians played with current Victorian Champion Bobby Cheng being the only one in top 30...

In my humble opinion SIO 2012 website is looking great with 8 DGT boards operating plus chat.Well done guys!!

Garrett

Tournament is great.

Ian Rogers is doing live commentary again which is fantastic.

There have been some interesting games.

Parramatta now has more markets and stuff going on in the town square just outside the venue. Today there is live music there as well.

The shifty pub around the corner is no more which is better for safety.

The weather is good.

Very multi-cultural, I've eaten turkish, mayan, sicilian, chinese, irish in the last couple of days.

All up it's all good !

I think that's a big part of the reason for the discrepancy in numbers. This year was the 50th Doeberl which made it especially attractive.

Agreed! Where are the game files? Canberra was very slow (still waiting on rd 9) but Sydney has none! Someone is letting down the team....

Spent most of the day cruising beaches today! Yesterday I had some time to drop in the venue and see some games and people!
I met the Zelescos, Mrs Illinworth, Garret, Hamish, the Jack family, the Dales, the Lohs, Johny Bolens - he was watching top board games and of course Adamski fulfilling my promise for our meeting!
I left Svetozar for last! I cought up with him in the afternoon since he had a bye in the morning! He is very tired and his phycical condition reflects on his not so solid performance here! He actually had to drive from Canberra to Melbourne and then from Melbourne to Parramatta with practically only one night's rest.
Svetozar is a very fine player and we haven't seen the best of him yet. However, having spent quite a while from actual chess playing due to overseas trips and business affected his performance in Sydney.
I am sure that when he settles down he will be amongst the best where he belongs!
Good luck for the last two rounds Svetozar, see you in Melbourne!

Agree the site looks very glitzy and the commentary feature is nice, but no photos, videos or pgn files? I'd much rather see a crappy old site with downloadable games than a flashy site without them - isn't it all about the games after all?

Kevin Bonham
15-04-2012, 01:46 AM
Was asked about norms - provisionally (and again doing this while very tired so mistakes are possible) I get the following:

Zeng Chongseng GM norm if he draws with black against Khamparia
Dennis Ovcina IM norm if he wins with white against Illingworth

And I get that Gene Nakauchi does not get an IM norm if he draws with black against Horvath, but only because he has played six AUS players but the maximum allowed is five.

Can't find any others. Corrections welcome.

Garrett

And I get that Gene Nakauchi does not get an IM norm if he draws with black against Horvath, but only because he has played six AUS players but the maximum allowed is five.

Still a great performance from Gene (chess-results has it over 2400) just when I thought the other young Queenslanders Brodie and Yi were pulling out in front of him !!

Thanks for your research Kevin.No norms for Australian players---it's a pity.

Good to see Stephen Solomon doing exceptionally well and hopefully will have a crack on one of the leaders.

Best of luck to our players in the last round!

And I get that Gene Nakauchi does not get an IM norm if he draws with black against Horvath, but only because he has played six AUS players but the maximum allowed is five.


That is incorrect. This rule does not apply because there are enough titled foreigners in the competition. I am not sure if draw is enough though. Did you do the math?

Vlad
15-04-2012, 09:17 AM
Yes, it is. His average is 2325.7, while it is required 2325. So if Gene draws he gets a norm.

Kevin Bonham
15-04-2012, 11:34 AM
That is incorrect. This rule does not apply because there are enough titled foreigners in the competition.

Thanks, that's good to know. For those wondering the exact rule is:

"*The regulations regarding mix of federations as in the boxes marked * are waived if the event is a Swiss System tournament in which the competitors include at least 20 FIDE Rated players, not from the host federation, from at least 3 federations, at least 10 of whom hold GM, IM, WGM or WIM titles."

which means a draw is enough (I did do the maths and got the same result as you did.)

Kevin Bonham
15-04-2012, 02:59 PM
Zeng Chongseng GM norm if he draws with black against Khamparia

He overkilled the norm requirement by beating Khamparia but was the only norm-getter as Ovcina and Nakauchi both went down.
