Nell Van De Graaff Classic 17-18 September

Venue Somerset College Sports Pavilion, Somerset Drive, Mudgeeraba

We have sold the chess centre, and we will be moving to our new office at 8/55 Railway Street, Mudgeeraba in three weeks. As a result of this, the Nell Van De Graaff Classic will return to the venue we used before the chess centre was built.

We will be sad to move out, but we need to move on.

The NVDG Classic is a 'Yulgilbar-Think Big' Australian Chess Grand Prix Category 3 event. It also doubles as a teams event. Teams of four must have an average ACF rating of below 1500. Haven't got a team? Relax, we'll put you into one on the day.

Total Prizes: $3,200

6 Rounds 60+10 Fischer
Sat: Reg from 8.30am Rd 1 9.30am, Rd 2 12 noon, Rd 3 2.30pm
Sun: Rd 4 9.30am, Rd 5 12 noon, Rd 6 2.30pm Prizes 5pm

Arbiter: Dr Charles Zworestine
Forfeit time for late arrivals 30 mins from the start of the round

GM Elect George Xie has entered the NVDG Classic. Start organising your teams now. Remember the average rating of your team must be under 1500.

I'm really pleased that Moulthun is playing. I think this is probably his first event since receiving the IM title. It will be interesting to see if he can continue to develop his form from his string of recent overseas tournaments.

Entries have started to flow in. Stephen Solomon has entered which makes it three IMs. I'll post a list of entries to date probably tomorrow.

Best of luck with the tournament Graeme, it looks like it will be a very successful one! Unfortunately I can't play since I don't return from Hungary in time!

Have paid my entry online.

My team (not sure if they've entered yet) is as follows:

Tyson Walker 1813
Martin Jack 1629
Michael D'arcy 1582
Clint Therakim 961

Average Rating - 1496.25

Still deciding on a team name. "Team Tyson" wasn't popular with the members I discussed with.

By the way, when is the team tournament?

Hi George

It is not a separate tourney.

It is just the sum of the team members scores in the (main) tourney.

cheers Garrett.

The original aim of the teams angle for the NVDG Classic was to aim for a lot more interaction between players of different ages and abilities. By and large this has been well and truly achieved. I can well remember a couple of young players who got to play in the same team as Ian and Cathy Rogers and win a teams prize with them. This type of story has been quite common.

Congratulations to GM Roland Schmaltz for his picket-fence victory and FM Gene Nakauchi for his second place, which included 2.5/3 against IMs Ly, Solomon and Xie. :clap:

Do you have any games from the event Graeme?

I think Charles may have a game or two in his report, which we hope to publish on our webpage tomorrow. My rather belated congratulations on your great GM performance in Hungary. Very well done Max!
