Love this event - can you bring Max back perchance? :P Would love to have a crack at the Aus Champ.

It was great to have Max participate last year, he added an extra touch of class to the event, winning with a picket fence score. Unfortunately, it appears that he will be competing in a couple of major tournaments in NSW that are likely to prevent him from returning this time.

2015 CROYDON CHESS CLASSIC - 5 weeks to go!

2015 CROYDON CHESS CLASSIC - 4 weeks to go!

Just a reminder that the 2015 Croydon Chess Classic is in just 4 weeks time. This is the next Australian Grand Prix event in Melbourne. Please see post #1 (http://www.chesschat.org/showthread.php?15900-2015-Croydon-Chess-Classic-11th-amp-12th-July&p=394220&viewfull=1#post394220) or our website (http://www.croydonchess.com/Tournaments/2015/CroydonChessClassicJuly/tabid/284/language/en-AU/Default.aspx) for details.

Here's 6 great reasons for playing the Classic this year:

1. Cheap entry for a weekender - just $50 ($40 concession/juniors/club members)

2. Relaxed time control of 75min + 30s increment.

3. Runs at the end of the school holidays - great for juniors!

4. Good conditions - helpful organisers; good heating; comfortable chairs; free tea, coffee and nibbles; a variety of local eateries; good parking; close to public transport.

5. Prize-winning opportunity 1: Twice as many rating prizes as similar tournaments. We have both adult and junior ratings prizes. That means adults can win prizes despite the presence of rapidly improving juniors in the same rating category.

6. Prize-winning opportunity 2: This year, some other major tournaments have been organised around the same time as the Classic. So, with many of the top players being enticed interstate, that's all the better for the remaining local players' chances to win the top prizes ($500 for 1st!).

So, grab the opportunity and play the Classic! (http://www.croydonchess.com/Tournaments/2015/CroydonChessClassicJuly/tabid/284/language/en-AU/Default.aspx)

Hi Ian. IMs Guy West and Ilias Kourkounakis (from Greece, FIDE 2349) and IA Marietta Mourouti (from Greece, FIDE 1611) will all be playing tomorrow. I am not likely to play as I can't make the last round. But I'll be there for much of the weekend obviously. See you tomorrow! :)

Cool to see Michael Hornung is back playing chest! See if the expert Scrabble players can win their respective chest tournaments this weekend - Michael Hornung in Victoria and Trevor Tao in SA.

Although other top players who have entered these tournies have an OK chance too...

Round 1 is underway. The top three boards can be followed live here: http://www.northernstarchess.com/Games_live_CCC_1-3.html

Due to a recalcitrant laptop, we can't post the board pairings yet but will as soon as we can. 40 plus players have entered so we're pretty happy with that given the number of strong tournaments which are on this year around this period.

Piece of trivia: the last time Guy and Ilias played in a tournament together was in 1978 at the World Youth in Graz, Austria
