With the success of the 2018 MCC ANZAC Day Weekender, it is likely that the 2018 Vic Open will be a full house. So though there is still five and a half weeks to go, players are encouraged to register early to avoid disappointment.

MCC is pleased to announce that GM Hrant Melkumyan has confirmed that he will play in the 2018 Vic Open!

GM Melkumyan (FIDE 2662) will be no pushover as he is currently the 3rd highest rated Armenian player after GMs Levon Aronian and Gabriel Sargissian!

There is just under a month left to enter the tournament. We expect that the field will reach capacity (92 players) again this year, so the sooner players register and pay their entry the better.

Early bird discount ends on Saturday 2 June.

Hi all

Just a short update on the level of entries for the Vic Open (I will refrain from posting the list for now, but it can be found at the MCC webpage for the event) which currently stands at 67 players!

That means that we are quickly approaching the limit of 92 players for the event.

Recent entries include IM Stephen Solomon, WGM Julia Ryjanova and WFM Giang Nguyen so the strength (as well as the numbers) of the tournament field is building.

Please enter soon to avoid disappointment, and remember that if you pay your entry by 2 June 2018, you will be eligible for the early-bird discount.

Need to remove the line breaks before and after the PGN headers for them to work, eg (click on quote to see how I've done this) :

Great effort by the MCC organisers to get more than 100 players for the tournament,but the prize distribution could be better.
In a tournament with 6 titled players and only 5 open prizes,
Wouldnt the prize divisions of under 2000,under 1700,under 1400 and under 1100 be more apt rather than starting from under 1800 prizes as it is mostly players just below the titled players that engage in bloody battles with the titled players and some tough matches with talented players from other groups
Otherwise the effort is unrewarding and any effort to justify dodo bird prizes for lower rating groups based on numbers will only lead to stagnation of players with lower rating due to lack of motivation.
I hope the organisers can atleast create an under 2000 rating prize group to motivate a group of players who are more likely to obtain titles in near future.

Wouldnt the prize divisions of under 2000,under 1700,under 1400 and under 1100 be more apt rather than starting from under 1800 prizes as it is mostly players just below the titled players that engage in bloody battles with the titled players and some tough matches with talented players from other groups


Thanks for this observation, we will take this on board for next time.

Melkumyan-Izzat was clearly the game of the round.
Black missed a chance to make a draw...by claiming 50 move rule I believe!

It was a drawn ending before the white king was allowed in through the queenside. but regarding the 50 moves. 50 moves weren't reached in the game because e7 was played on move 50. But had black played 98...Kf8 99.Re8 Ke7 and black Can claim the draw right in the nick of time

Just wondering whether the ratings and federations could be added to the pairings and results for the last few rounds? Just makes it more interesting.

Yep...he could have made the claim after e7.
I had a similar situation in the Last rd of Aus Masters once, my opponent claimed a draw in a position where he was about to get mated :( (I had R&B vs his R with no pawns)

Thanks to the person who pointed out that the players in this game were wrongly coloured - this has been corrected in the tournament PGN.

Yep...he could have made the claim after e7.After the pawn move? :hmm:

After the pawn move? :hmm:Michael is simply wrong.
He needs to study up on the Laws of Chess.


the last 50 moves by each player have been completed without the movement of any pawn and without any capture.

Is the last move Rg3 right?! because the Ne4xRg3 gives material advantage to black pieces. Why should black resign.

Below is an interview I had with the 2018 Victorian Open winner GM Hrant Melkumyan not long after his final round win:

==================================

TL: Congratulation Hrant on winning the Vic Open 7 out of 7. How did you feel you went during the tournament?

HM: Thank you. I'm pretty satisfied with the level of my play. There were no major mistakes or blunders. The only shaky game was the game against Kanan, where I missed a quite easy win - I mean if it comes to your mind, it's quite easy. I knew I was winning but then I started doubting it and then I end up going for a rook endgame that could have been drawn. Then there was lots of drama but at the end I was lucky I managed to win without him claiming the 50 moves rule. I managed to move my pawn on the 50th move. He could have played a move where I pushed the pawn, it was a draw. It was pretty tricky stuff.

TL: I noticed when you were playing, given that you were a heavy favourite rated almost 200 points above the second seed, you were very ruthless and materialistic and didn't fear lines that to the club player might look threatening - for example, your game against Scott Stewart. How do you explain your fearlessness in that sort of situation?

HM: Normally, I try to just do what the position requires, so against him, he went for an attack which I thought shouldn't be working. It was quite dangerous, but I was hoping to find the right moves and if I do so, it was not going to work. I was a bit worried, but I was just hoping to find the right moves. Yeah, otherwise, I wasn't so fearless, I was forced to go for it (laughs) - he forced me basically to go for the position.

TL: You come from a country, Armenia, that has a lot of chess heritage. The current Armenia number 1 is Levon Aronian. Do you know Lev well?

HM: Yes, we train together. We're very good friends.

TL: Did you help him leading up to the Candidates tournament or give him moral support?

HM: Once, I helped him full time. In general, we stay in touch.

TL: It must have been very disappointing to see him not do well in Berlin this year.

HM: Yes. I was only involved in London 2013 where he was playing his best chess, I think, in that period. He was playing really well and fighting with Carlsen for first place in the beginning of that tournament. There was a turning point where Magnus was completely lost against Radjabov but he drew and Lev was very close to beating Grischuk but he drew. In another scenario, if Lev had won and Carlsen lost, Lev would have been one point ahead going into the second half of that tournament. But after that he lost to Gelfand, he lost the momentum and Carlsen took control.

TL: Hopefully, he's still got more opportunities to compete and challenge for the title again.

HM: Yes, I'm sure he will.

TL: And will you be playing in the Chess Olympiad in a few months' time?

HM: Yes - it's going to be very exciting because it's my first Olympiad.

TL: Oh, really? I didn't know that. Armenia had won the gold medal a few years ago, is that right?

HM: Yes, we won three gold medals. I've won a few medals for Armenia in but only in World and European team championships. But I haven't played in the Olympiad before because in the last Olympiad, we didn't go.*

TL: Well, good luck.

HM: Thank you.

TL: And how have you been finding Melbourne and Australia? I notice you played in Melbourne before in the Best in the West. What keeps you coming back?

HM: Well, my girlfriend lives in Australia, so I visit here every year. I really like Australia - it's a very nice place and I have no bad things to say, it's all good.

TL: I hope it hasn't been too cold this weekend!

HM: Oh no, this is nothing (laughs).

TL: And a final word of advice to the up-and-coming Australia players like Anton Smirnov, Max Illingworth, James Morris, those sorts of players. What advice would you give them to raise their chess to 2500, 2600 level and beyond.

HM: I know these players, they are quite strong. Just, to stay focused and work a lot.

TL: Right. Congratulations and well done on first place. Thanks Hrant.

HM: Thank you.

Julia Ryjanova v Marcus Raine

(...)

Is the last move Rg3 right?! because the Ne4xRg3 gives material advantage to black pieces. Why should black resign.
:eek:

The mistake in transcribing the game was actually on black's 27th move. This has been corrected.
