Agreed. Pity the event is not run on Tornelo so that we can follow what is happening.
I rocked up there to watch but the players are all locked away and you can't follow the games so its pretty pointless.
A very disappointing tournament.

More correctly .... results are eventually on the CV website. It's 8.30pm and thought I'd check who won the U/18 but can't find any results at all. Maybe I'll check again in a week or so.

One of the best run tournaments that we have attended in many years: nice & cosy indoor area (considering we had rainy and windy weather for most of the days), kids had safe outdoor area to play when the weather permitted, tournament was run smoothly, the pairings and results got published in time at the venue, plenty of chairs/tables for parents, free tea/hot water...to name a few.

Thank you so much Chess Victoria.

Sorry, but many kids/parents don't want Tornelo.

First of all, let me say that I have got nothing to do with CV whatsoever.

But, these organizers must be tired after so many days' hard work. So please give them a bit of time to catch a breath?

And I am sure more volunteers are welcome by the CV to do all these hard yakka.

It looks like Alana and Max won the same tournament.


2015 Victorian Juniors Girl Champion: Chew Lee, Max
from the Chess Victoria website, something not right.

There's plenty of other options rather than Tornelo, like updating the website, just seems like the norm in club chess, little lone a annual tournament.

Congrats to Max.

After what Max did to Eugene Schon the other week, he was the hot favourite.
Alana and Max might have got some good coaching at some stage.

Also a great effort by Luis Chan. The conveyer belt of strong Victorian junior production (to paraphrase Ian Rogers) is still on track.

And our top juniors (Dale, Loh,Puccini) are not even playing in the event :)

How come like this? To prevent cheating? To keep adults away?

No it was because of the limited space in the playing area, it was held in school classrooms that comfortably fitted the players but left little to no room for spectators. The tournament was well run and sadly a few negative comments from those non-players who wanted to watch the games for their own amusement have undermined the excellent and tireless work of the officials who ran so many simultaneous from u8 girls & boy up to under 18s with many groups and different game times in between.

Well done to all those who played and special mention of Max Chew Lee who won the under 18s undefeated.

How I wish all tournaments had spectators. I say if you can get spectators to come and watch the games it is a huge achievement by organizers cause few people come and spectate usually.

I planned to spectate at the Zonal yesterday but after 2 long rounds, yesterday's round was shorter and there were NO games still going at 6 PM when I reached norths. That was a disappointment.
