It's great to see a FIDE rated event in QLD, but it seems very strange that we have an IA from Myanmar (Burma) coming to be the Chief when there is arbiter's in Australia.

Unfortunately not as far as I'm aware Elliot, I don't have anything to do with the organization I merely just work at the school.
But considering it is so close to the city, you will be able to find cheap accommodation everywhere. I am also catching public transport to the venue it is that convenient,
there is a bus that goes from Wollongabba (The gabba) to about 200m away from the school.

Hi Thomas and thanks for the very important information! My chances to play in the above are rather limited since I will be very busy at the time. The main reason I asked is that
Churchie is favoured to host a major all Australian competition in 2017. I know you are guessing which tournament I am talking about but since no official announcement has yet
been made I better be as discrete as possible. Anyway, my (very reliable) source informed me that during that competition Churchie will provide accommodation. Cheers, see you at Doeberl! :)

Sorry, I was playing in Doeberl so didn't have time to update this thread, I'm not too sure how to edit the times but as pointed out the correct times are

Round 4 - Sunday 10AM

I'm not too sure how many new players have registered but I do know that a 2400 player has shown big interest and maybe confirming his participating tomorrow.

Thanks for pointing out the correct times but I'm actually more interested knowing who has entered. You originally said you'd post the list of names [#2 post in this thread] but so far this hasn't eventuated, and so now I'm wondering what kind of time frame to expect for this.

I'm not just being pedantic (a frequent 'sin' on this site). I'm a busy person with many responsibilities beyond chess. I'm therefore relatively choosy about the events I enter. In each instance I want to have a sense of the kind of field I could play against and, if possible, I like to know that the venue will be comfortable and that the organisers are committed to maintaining good playing conditions.

I apologize for the concerns Tony, I only work for the school therefore I can only update the list as I get emailed it, I asked Max and there haven't been many more entries added, I will email him again. The Venue is actually very nice, if you ask around in Brisbane mainly with the juniors you'll get the same response.

Thanks for all the news and updates, ThebeJohnston. Great to see such a strong line up already.

And Hughston, definitely ACF and FIDE rated (as has been confirmed), but also the event runs over a long weekend - might be worth checking the schedule if you had a single day QJ event in mind!

No chess this trip, though.

With Dashiell Young drawing his first round game, this means his opponent only needs 4 more games to secure a FIDE rating, which was one of many primary objectives for this tournament

Also after losing to Tom Maguire, combined with Doeberl Cup, Lucas Su has achieved a FIDE rating too.

Great results for both boys. Noah played a very thoughtful game against Dash, and probably had the better of it towards the end, but probably got excited when his higher-rated opponent offered him a draw!

There are lots of great photos floating around, but at the moment I don't know exactly where they are... I think there is a plan to have a pictoral report in the next ACF Newsletter, which I will try to have included in my next CAQ newsletter as well.

Congratulations to IM Aleks Wohl and IM James Morris, joint winners of the inaugural Churchie International with the score of 6/7. Aleks and James defeated IM Moulthun Ly and FM Gene Nakauchi, respectively, to surge ahead (those four players started the final round tied for first with 5/6). Aleks delegated the speech-giving duties to James, and while James was critical of his own speeches, I think he will have ample opportunity to practice them - his strong performance here follows his excellent Doeberl Cup. Yi Liu finished in third place outright, halting Andrew Davies' excellent run (consecutive wins over Tyson Walker and Alex Au) in the final round. It was fantastic to see some of newer players make the most of their opportunity to play in a FIDE rated event - Noah Milbourne and Cole De Git are two who showed concentration far above their respective chess experience, and they were rewarded with some excellent results. Now the challenge is to play in Open tournaments regularly...

I would like to thank all the players, and all the parents, for their support of the tournament. It was an ambitious undertaking, and not without some nervous moments for the organisational team, but ultimately I don't think there could be much doubt as to the event's success. The large crowd at the closing ceremony (very much a rarity) was a good indication of the tournament's standing with the players.

My thanks to Max for the opportunity to co-direct a tournament of this calibre. I would like to thank Peter as well for teaching me as much as he did over four days.

As far as I am aware, the final results have been on chess-results.com for a couple of hours - I will provide updates on those here shortly.

Cheers,

Michael.

Congratulations to the winners – Aleks and James! I had a terrible performance, even though I feel that I played some very good chess. Credit to my opponents who all played exceptional. Does anyone know where the tournament's photos can be viewed?
