Yes, we were aware that Johannes, who has been a regular player in the MCC Allegros since arriving from Germany, probably has a FIDE rating. We were waiting to confirm the details with Kerry.

The ratings posted above are mostly the ACF ratings of the entrants.

I'm not doing it, so I doubt it.

Are there live games anywhere?

Games can only be viewed live at the club in Fitzroy - no internet coverage for this weekender.
I'm trying to put together a database of games from the tournament (aiming for top 5 boards + brilliancy prize nominations), so hopefully there should be around 40+ games available after the tournament on the MCC website.

Hi Kerry,

There has been a mistake.

Regan won his game. ( Board 28 )

Thanks for noticing this!
I've adjusted results & pairings accordingly.
For players on 1 or 0.5, the only changes are on boards 13 & 14, however many of the pairings for players on 0 points have changed.
Apologies for the inconvenience!

Thank you to the organisers, arbiter, fellow participants and spectators who joined
in providing this tournament with a great ambience, an abundance of exciting games,
and tough competition.
One particular person's silly antics during the last round managed to repeatedly disrupt
proceedings, but hey every one will remember the 2016 MCC Anzac Day weekender
for a plethora of positive reasons and not the nonsensical behaviour of someone.
Cheers and good luck to all! :)

You can name names (Ruben Nowak). His antics certainly unsettled my play, and if I'd been in contention for a prize I would have made a formal complaint about him.

I'd like to thank the organisers, arbiters and everyone at the MCC as well. My son Henry had a wonderful weekend of chess and told me throughout how welcoming and encouraging everyone was. You have a great chess community in Melbourne. We're from Sydney but will hopefully be back for more events at the MCC.

Unfortunately for Kris his 13th move, while winning a pawn, expended a couple of valuable tempi and opened up lines on the queenside which Justin adroitly exploited.

Well done Justin!

Well done Justin!

Black's position was already looking extremely difficult to hold. Pawn on d5 was hanging and 13...Ne7 leaves black in a cramped position.
