I haven't seen a thread for this tournament yet, so I thought I would start one.

The Park Road Chess Club is hosting the Rosalie Weekender over the first weekend of November. First prize is $600.

This event is restricted to players rated ACF 1000+. Questions and queries should be directed to Andrew Davies - email: awldavies07@gmail.com

The tournament brochure is here: http://www.caq.org.au/htm/2014/2014_Rosalie_Weekender.pdf

I have heard word that a Under 1000 junior medal event will be held in conjunction with the main tournament, although probably over one day. I will post details on this thread as soon as they are confirmed.

It has been confirmed that the Rosalie Weekender (1-2 November 2014) will not have an accompanying medal event for players rated below 1000. However, such a tournament will be held alongside the Hemmingway Weekender, which will be organised by Park Road Chess Club later in November.

The Rosalie Open is solely for players rated ACF 1000+

Sorry for any confusion regarding the above.

So far, this has certainly been a very hard fought event. The last game to finish today was the third round draw between Stuart Holt and Tony Weller that went for close to four hours and almost 90 moves. Moulthun showed his class today, and reached 3/3 without really being troubled. Alain Pardoen had a good day to reach 2.5/3, this included a draw with Yi Liu (600 rating gap) and a strong win over Marcus Porter. Alain's reward is white against Moulthun first thing tomorrow!

Round 4 starts at 9:30AM, Sunday 11 November.

I thought Alain was stronger than that (over 2000-ish)

I thought Alain was stronger than that (over 2000-ish)

He was (and is), his rating took a several-hundred point dive following his first tournament back in years at the Brisbane club. He certainly played at close to his old rating for most of this event (his miraculous escape against Leon Lee not withstanding!).

Congratulations to IM Moulthun Ly, winner of the inaugural Rosalie Weekender. He wasn't under threat in any of his games, and reached 6/6 very convincingly. Yi Liu's 4.5/6 was good enough for second place after he defeated (and overtook) Tom Maguire in the final round in an extremely tense game. Tom Maguire and Alain Pardoen shared third place with 4/6, both playing strong chess. Jason Chan deservedly took out the Under 1400 rating group with a 3.5/6 performance.

I would like to thank all the players for participating; it was a hard fought, good natured and enjoyable event. Big thanks of course to Andrew Davies who organised the tournament.
