Was hoping to sign up to this tournament as my first ever, but I occasionally have to travel interstate for work and am concerned it may impact my ability to compete.

Can anyone clarify the rules around byes? I would hope to only have to take one bye in those 9 rounds, but on the off chance I have to take two, will this create issues?
Also, how much notice do you require prior to taking bye?

Players can take up to 2 half-point byes in rounds 1-7.

For rounds 8 and 9, byes can still be taken but doing so will result in the player receiving 0 points.

Players should advise the arbiter of the need to take a bye as soon as possible, but at the latest before the draw for the next round is finalised and published. Usually, the draw for the next Monday round is released on Thursday evening.

I will certainly be playing in this, but I might have to take a bye in the first round, I'm still nowhere near 100%.

I'll let you know by Saturday :)

Just wondering is there any possibility of using May FIDE ratings for Rd 2 onwards/prizes. Hot off the presses this sunday in time for Rd 2. Not big deal but more accurate than April ratings. I refer in particular to Vishal Bhat who has exceeded 2100!!!. Well Done :clap:

gbekker
28-04-2016, 02:58 PM
FIDE regulations require that we use the FIDE ratings which were current at the time that the tournament began (i.e. April 2016 ratings). Sorry.

My UNofficial answer as fellow player is you will get full point bye if no one else enters. Given its Friday night you should be given the bye IMO but may get paired last minute on Monday Night (possibly with someone not playing just to give you the game). I would ask Gary Bekker, Simon Dale. Hope this helps. :)

Hi Jacek

I haven't been in touch with either the arbiter Gary Bekker and tournament organiser Elizabeth Warren (and I am surprised that neither has yet addressed your query), but if I were in your position, I would turn up tomorrow night and expect to play.

My assumption for the TBA is that Gary is keeping open the possibility that there may be a late entrant into the tournament. As the tournament accommodates 2 half-point byes, there is a chance (theoretically) that someone could enter into the draw as late as round 3.

In any case, were you to come tomorrow, there is a possibility that even if you are the odd person that you could play a player who would act as "filler" for the purpose of giving you a game.

There is a chance that should you turn up and no-one acts as a filler, you may simply not have anyone to play, in which case I would apologise to you for any inconvenience.

I will email the your query to the attention of Gary and Elizabeth and hopefully they will reply before the start of the round tomorrow. Feel free to contact either of them yourself if you should wish.

Just on the topic of the arbiter for this tournament, unfortunately the role has changed since the initial post in this thread.

Please note that the arbiter is not Simon Dale, but Gary Bekker.

He can be contacted by email at gbekkerchess@gmail.com.

Hi everybody,

There are several players who have volunteered to "fill in" on those occasions when there is an odd number of players, and we have also had a number of late entries. Unless your pairing is published as a bye, you should turn up to play your rated tournament game. TBA indicates your opponent is yet to be announced.

Many thanks,

Gary Bekker :)

Gary you need to fix Dean Hogg rating , it's not 2072 as you have it . Its 2018 for his ACF . I only noticed this error tonight

Suffering from overcrowding on everything below the top boards - any reason why we don't
use the back room and let players spread out a bit more?

Please note that David Lacey and Anthony Harris would have both won their games on forfeit against Christopher Lim and Cassandra Lim repectively, hence they both won a point in round 9, but agreed to play a rated game against each other as shown in the results.

Posting of the Round 9 Results was delayed until the final result from Round 9 was available. The game Bhat - Penrose was postponed until tonight (Wednesday evening) due to illness. In the end, Justin Penrose was still ill and unable to play tonight, so Vishal Bhat has won his final round game on forfeit.

I'm profoundly interested Thai as to why, Vishal, Ray, and Mehmed did not receive $166.66 each, is there a logic behind this ?

Yes, my understanding also is that prize amounts should be split equally, unless this causes players who are eligible to receive prizes in a larger number of categories to receive a lesser share than that which they are entitled to.

Here, I think the 3 players should each receive $400 * 1/3 = $133.33. :)

If the Rating Group A prize is sufficiently high, then the two eligible players would receive a greater share. For example, if the Rating Group A prize were $500, then the prize distribution would be Vishal $200 (3rd), Ray $250 (=1st RG A), Mehmed $250 (=1st RG A).

I remember Bill Gletsos once posted the NSWCA's prize rules somewhere.

Oops! Sorry - mea culpa.

Yes, Malcolm. You're absolutely right and I apologise for making this mistake.

I simply transposed the prize winners set out in Gary's post (which was not accompanied with their respective scores) with the set prizes, without taking into account the actual scores of the players.

I'll edit my previous post to fix this error. This was my error and mine alone.

Your logic is correct - as Vishal, Ray and Mehmed all finished on the same score and none of the three is eligible to be the winner(s) of a higher paying prize, the prizes won by the trio is pooled and then shared.
