The 2016 Australian Juniors begins on Saturday the 16th of January in Adelaide. I have not seen a thread for this created, if there was Kevin can you merge my post with it [done - KB]

The tournament website is here: http://www.ajcc.org.au/

I will be present, providing live games. The games will be broadcasted onto the ACF website: http://auschess.org.au/acf/live-games/online-dgt-room-a/

At this time I am not sure which boards will be live, but I assume it will be a mixture of the top boards of the numerous tournaments. I will, if I have the time provide updates on chesschat of any interesting results, or records.

Last year they provided a top board for most divisions which I liked, I even made it up onto DGT a couple times.

I arrived in Adelaide earlier today, I'm attending the Juniors as a private coach. The organisers deserve a lot of credit for arranging the boarding house at the venue for the players/parents/coaches, which is pretty comfortable at a good rate to boot.

The top 2 boards from the U18 and U16 are being broadcasted.

The U10s and U8s will not be broadcasted.

Board 1, Ari got winning position in 7 moves!

Yes black has to be a bit careful with move order in the exchange Slav.

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.cxd5 cxd5 4.Bf4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Bf5? 6.Qb3 Nc6 [6...b6 loses to 7.Nb5 since 7...Na6 8.Qa4][ 6...Qb6 7.Qxb6 axb6] 7.Qxb7 +-

Kevin Bonham
16-01-2016, 11:43 AM
After 7...Nxd4 Ari surprisingly played only 8.Rc1. White still has a very strong, probably won, position but after 8.0-0-0 black could have seriously considered resigning.

James Watson

Black will probably resign soon

Big match on board 1

Ari (at least so far) appears to be too good for this tournament. He totally dominated the game from the opening.

Adamski
18-01-2016, 05:46 AM
In Round 3 of the U 16 Black won on the top 5 boards! Rather unusual. Not always the higher rated player. One of the victims was Rooty Hill and norths' Kevin Willathgamuwa. Hope Kevin does well from here on.

Soetanto is shown as winning the last playoff game showing on the DGT so suspect he did unless there were transmission issues (assuming it isn't still going!)

I had the opportunity to play Brandon at Aus champs, very young and very talented was a great game.
Good to see him win the title.
Would've been nice to see a girl win the open u8, especially wouldve made me feel better about losing to her 6 months ago at NSW open when she was 200 rated.

I must admit though...I too would be tempted to accept draw for any of the sides :).I was watching Cannon-Gooch and I was surprised that White would take a draw without trying more sabre-rattling. Not so surprised that Black was happy with the outcome.

It should be said, though, that national championships are not for improvement or development or practice, the aim is to achieve an outcome which may mean playing against the demands of an individual position. Perhaps also a little unfair to put words between IM Jamieson's teeth.

Actually, Black is possibly better in the final position as white has many weak pawns. :lol:

I have to agree with this statement. I was present while the IM commentated in the Aus Champs.

3034

He took extra care and paid special attention to junior questions.

He explained situations for them in detail.

3035

Juniors were happy! This particular one, hand raised next to his dad,
must have asked at least 5 very sound questions.

At some stage IM Robert Jamieson told us an interesting story.

Early 70s match between the legendary Waverley Chess Club vs the Nomads on a 13 board match.

The home team has only 12 players present.

The captain calls a junior - a blonde kid as described by the IM - to complete the team.

Result: Waverley 12.5 - 0.5 Nomads.

The junior who drew was (a few years later to become a GM) Darryl Johansen!

Gong - Maguire had a couple of things of interest to me: attacking sacs against the Caro-Kann and a fortress attempt. However the fortress can never work because black can always give back Q for R with a won pawn ending.

The sheer amount of variations that end in a repetition are startling to me. Neither of us saw any of them during the game or after it when we analysed it (twice!). I saw 16. Ng6!? but didn't really believe it could work - as it turns out, White gets far more than I thought he would and I think it's actually the computer's (second?) choice behind 16. Nxd7. Some of my decisions after move 33 are questionable but I think I was so relieved to get out alive that I got complacent, and nearly stumbled into a fortress or two. For instance 42. Rf1+ Ke6 43. Rf3 is a much harder nut to crack than in the game, but it still should be winning. One would think that I would have learned my lesson about complacency with a decisive material advantage against that opponent... :D

Looking at Position after Qf7 now. It is totally crazy! Almost impossible for a human to assess acurately. It is also very hard for a human player (unless a GM) to find Qf7!

Looking at Position after Qf7 now. It is totally crazy! Almost impossible for a human to assess acurately.

Not very easy for a computer either. I'm not sure the above is the final word on it by any means but it seems for now that black was always OK. I doubt any human would see the idea Ba5-c3-e5-c7 on a board so full of tactics, though white also has a different line 24.Rxe8 (instead of 24.Ba5) Nxe8 and now there is another nest of repetitions, here's the best one:

1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 dxe4 4.Nxe4 Bf5 5.Ng3 Bg6 6.Nf3 Nd7 7.h4 h6 8.h5 Bh7 9.Bd3 Bxd3 10.Qxd3 e6 11.Bd2 Ngf6 12.0-0-0 Be7 13.Qe2 Qc7 14.Rhe1 0-0 15.Ne5 c5 16.Ng6 fxg6 17.Qxe6+ Kh8 18.hxg6 Ng8 19.Nf5 Rae8 20.d5 Qd8 21.Qf7!!

In the analysis afterwards there was also another crazy line which lead to this where Patrick Gong didn't go for it because he calculated if he promoted to a queen, he would get back ranked but he missed he could promote to a knight and draw.

For the next few days of the tournament the Top 2 boards for the U14s and 12s will be broadcasted in the morning round, but for the afternoon round the top board for the U18s, 16s, 14s & 12s will be broadcasted. (This is because the U18s and 16s only have 1 round per day, where the U14s and 12s have 2).

He wouuld have won with an extra piece; as it turns out, it was only a theoretical idea which never comes up with perfect play, and 31. a3 is actually one of the best moves.

Hi Chigoresov, It is indeed a little hard to update throughout the day. We are trying our best. Games are being uploaded onto the school computers and will be downloaded and made available. We had hoped to be able to release more games through bulletins, but the workload is a little taxing for the organisers. We have started updating scores via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/australianJCL throughout the day. Hope that helps!

I think the arbiters and organisers would have had their hands full today, running playoffs, calculating prizes, preparing for and conducting the awards ceremony, packing/cleaning up the venue. Perhaps some have had flights to catch.

Nevertheless, I agree that timely and reliable publication of results/pairings is a fairly basic expectation for a tournament of this stature.

Must congratulate Ari on his picket fence. 9/9 is always a great achievement. Well done!

I agree. A good effort. Morra Gambit always an interesting opening choice and it brought home the point.

Do not be disappointed with the result. Junior tournaments are the most difficult to play in as almost all of your opponents are underated

Sounds like it was a very professionally run tournament, at a great venue with comfortable accommodation at an affordable price. It certainly seems as though the players all enjoyed themselves. Congratulations to everyone who contributed to this event.

Is there also a full list of prizewinners for the Lightning and Problem Solving Championships?

Would like to second this request for the Problem Solving Competition - the relevant page only says 'Full details of this event will be announced later'.
