Rate of Play
All moves in 90 minutes per player, plus 30 seconds per move from move 1.

Half-Point Byes
Players may request the Arbiter for a Half Point Bye in rounds 1 to 5. This must be done in writing prior to the tournament or before the end of the preceding round

General

Draws under 15 moves will not be accepted.
The tournament has been registered with FIDE and the results will be submitted for international rating.


Accommodation

Players are requested to make their own arrangements for accommodation. Anyone intending to make a booking should do so as early as possible since the long weekend is a very busy period in Ballarat and it could be difficult to obtain a room if no advance arrangement is made.

The ballarat.com website contains comprehensive details on accommodation options and tourism information.

It would be good if we could get some forms of confirmation: being in the list somewhere, or getting an email from the organiser.

I have registered/paid for the kids a few days ago. I can see the money got transferred out of my account. But I haven't heard anything from the organiser. If there was anything wrong with the registration / money transaction now, we can take action now before it is too late.

Is there going to be an update on the entries for Ballarat? One of the biggest events in Victoria, and other then the past few posts there have been almost no news or advertisement.

could be useful to all interested parties if you checked on the major sponsor's site!
hint: starts with torn and ends in elo!

maybe they don't have all the entries so far, but I am sure that as soon as they get the info from the organisers they will
have them published with all the necessary details!

Elliot. Tornelo has 8 entries with an 1800 as top seed. I believe this would still qualify as me saying there has been little done. Unless you believe this is adequate?

Phil. not a matter of credo! not a Begonia apologist either. I just suggested the site which contained useful information in the past. to be honest I checked it out after your note here! :) cheers!

Hi Phil & Alex, at this stage, this is not untypical of the entry list for this tournament- (refer the last couple of year's threads). A lot of people prefer to suddenly enter at the last minute, and not take advantage of the early bird discount... The Organising Committee doesn't have a direct link here, so 1) any question you ask here won't necessarily be seen by them and 2) anything you hear from me here will be third hand.

Having said that, I'll see if I can get a response. :)

Hi all, I've heard back from the organisers.

In response to Southern Cross's question re WiFi at the venue:


Whilst there is no free WiFi available at the venue there is good telephone reception for Telstra and Optus services but Vodafone can be a problem.

I also have a list of 75 people who have contacted the organisers (sorted alphabetically, no ratings) - quite a few entries are expected on the day.

Hi Phillip,

As I am not the Chief Arbiter, only Deputy Chief Arbiter, I have raised this with the Chief Arbiter and I hope it will be done by FIDE rating as you have pointed out it to be FIDE rated.

This will be announced at the Opening Ceremony tomorrow.

Thanks.

Hooray! Three hours after the round started the draw is up on Tornelo. Now if only we could find someone to promptly enter the results and even the occasional game then everything would be fine. If Tornelo are in fact sponsoring the event then you would imagine they want the software to be actually used and up-to-date.

Thanks Gary, I was wondering what the disturbance was around the top boards in Round 4.

A pity I won't be able to play tomorrow due to work commitments, I had an enjoyable game against a a junior who played exceptionally well - I look forward to following the results online at work tomorrow.

Malcolm Pyke suffered an unfortunate loss on mobile phone forfeit, when his Siri application began talking.

Really? I had been under the impression that this (draconian) rule had been relaxed - or if not completely, to at least to an extent that allowed for arbiter discretion?

Malcolm Pyke suffered an unfortunate loss on mobile phone forfeit, when his Siri application began talking.

Sigh...and Siri is not even rated.

David Webster

I believe the condition that all phones must not be in the playing area was relaxed, not the rule that if a phone goes off during play.

There is nothing in the rules that says anything about a mobile phone making a sound. If the rules of competition specify a lesser penalty than loss of game for having a phone in the venue, then an arbiter may still decide to punish a player whose phone makes a sound with loss of game under Law 11.5 (as it is an 'introduction of a source of noise into the playing area'), but this is not the only possible penalty.

In club tournaments I now announce before the start that I will be awarding 2 minutes to the opponent for a player's first offence (as long as I am satisfied that it was accidental) and loss of the game for subsequent offences.

Lighty
09-03-2015, 10:01 AM
No mobile phones may be in the venue period, however the majority of arbiters (myself included) do not enforce this, especially for club tournaments, as it is more often than not impractical. The phone going off is still an offense under 11.5, however if we are allowing phones into the venue it is only logical to use the older consequences for phone noise. It's not like people don't know by now to turn them off, and most arbiters also say before rounds start to turn phones off (or simply before the tournament as a whole for weekenders), so it really shouldn't be an issue (and I know Malcolm wouldn't argue with me on this! ;).

gbekker

All players have been reminded, before every round, that their phones must be switched off and not handled during their games, and that if it rings or makes any other audible noises, they will lose their game on forfeit. Malcolm was very unlucky. He had his phone in flight mode and on silent mode, but the Siri application began talking despite these precautions. His opponent claimed the win, and Malcolm lost the game accordingly. There have been similar unfortunate incidents in other tournaments previously, usually with alarms and reminders. Malcolm has since disabled his Siri application, and has decided not to bring his phone into the playing venue any more, just in case.

Kevin Bonham
09-03-2015, 10:09 AM
It's worth bearing in mind that although the Laws say no phones in the playing area, an attempt to change this in Tromso had universal support but the meeting was inquorate. Therefore FIDE issued an "instruction" to arbiters that phones in the playing area were OK provided they were switched off and not on the person.

For the current Tas Champs I pre-announced:

* phone switched off and not on the person - allowed
* phone switched off and on the person - warning only unless cheating suspected
* phone makes a noise - old mobile phone rule applies, loss of game

David is entirely correct that a consequence of the way the Laws have been changed is that if the arbiter specifies a different penalty for having a phone on the person in the playing area, then a ringing phone does not necessarily cause loss of game and must be judged based on the source of noise rule (I add also the distraction rule applies).

MichaelBaron
09-03-2015, 01:06 PM
Would be great to see arbiters given a discression whether to follow all of the fide rules religiously or not.

It's worth bearing in mind that although the Laws say no phones in the playing area, an attempt to change this in Tromso had universal support but the meeting was inquorate. Therefore FIDE issued an "instruction" to arbiters that phones in the playing area were OK provided they were switched off and not on the person.

For the current Tas Champs I pre-announced:

* phone switched off and not on the person - allowed
* phone switched off and on the person - warning only unless cheating suspected
* phone makes a noise - old mobile phone rule applies, loss of game

David is entirely correct that a consequence of the way the Laws have been changed is that if the arbiter specifies a different penalty for having a phone on the person in the playing area, then a ringing phone does not necessarily cause loss of game and must be judged based on the source of noise rule (I add also the distraction rule applies).

Thanks for the excellent clarification Kevin - and congrats on another Tasmanian title :)

Thanks Watto, it looks like Kanan has made it a very impressive picket fence scoreline with a victory over Dusan in the final round.

Congratulations Kanan!

I would expect that between the acceleration and the strength and depth of field, Begonia would be about the hardest weekender in Australia to get a picket fence in. Anyone know how many previous cases there are?

I've been playing in this tournament since the early 1990s - I recall it happening in recent years, but can't recall the exact year.

Nice to see such nice people as Jim Cannon, Chris Barlow, Patrick Cook, Rob Bailey, Jamie Brotheridge & Sarah Anton amongst the prizes! :)

I had a very tough game with Sarah in the last round. I had the big advantage of having played the line in high level correspondence earlier this year. I remembered the positional queen sacrifice from the previous game. I will write up both games for the Box hill Chess Club bulletin and possibly the Australian correspondence Chess Quarterly.

Guy was telling me earlier today that 7/7 had never happened at Ballarat before but perhaps he just missed the year you're thinking of. Anyway, congratulations Kanan! :)
EDIT: according to my googling, James Morris won Ballarat in 2013 with 7/7 CORRECTION wikipedia entry is wrong - according to 2013 crosstables it was 6.5/7?

Thanks Watto. It is also entirely possible that Guy is right, and I have "mis-remembered"... (a lot of brain cells have passed away since 1990 :( ) ... but I could have sworn someone had won at Ballarat with a picket fence scoreline at sometime during my playing memory.

I've had a look at the Ballarat Chess Club website which lists some of the results, and can't find a 7 score... (by the way, they really should update that 2007 pic entitled "Nigel Barrow vs ?" to David Hacche...)

I did some write ups of the tournament for the Bendigo Advertiser from 1996 through 2000, so I am going to have to fire up my old computer and have a look through them - if I still can't find a "7", I'll ask Kevin & Patrick who should have all the results for the last 49 years. :-)

The Ballarat Begonia Open

Congratulations to Kanan Izzat for winning the Open with a perfect score of 7! This is the first time in 49 years this has happened! Congratulations also to local players, Patrick Cook, Harrison H, Michael Tausz and Jamie Brotheridge for winning division and other prizes!

I unfortunately had a loss in round 6 vs sarah Anton due to my mobile. My phone had been off but I had it in my pocket which was quite small, when I lent forward in an interesting position the power button on the side was pressed turning it on after which I received a message. Admittedly my position may have been lost anyway being a pawn down in a clearly worse position, but there was certainly alot of play left at that point. I've learnt my lesson now, wont be keeping my phone on me where possible, in my final game I just kept it off and on the table.

In regards to the 7/7 score. I can confirm that it is the first 7/7 in Begonia history, however the very first Begonia event (which at the time was only for locals) was won with a perfect 6/6

Ballarat Chess Club President, Patrick Cook has asked me to post the following comments with regards to the Begonia records:



19 year old IM Kanan Izzat (Azerbaijan) made chess history by being the only winner of the Ballarat Begonia Open with a perfect 7/7. He is also only the 2nd overseas guest to win the event (Patrick Scharrer from Italy was joint winner in 2013, & of course Kanan was joint winner in 2014).
The 1st tournament in 1967 was called the Begonia City Swiss and was restricted to country players. It was won by Ballarat's own Ernie Greenhalgh with a perfect 6/6.
The tournament became a genuine Open event in 1968.
