Many of our regular entrants seem to be still returning from holidays (also a reason for so many byes), all late entrants will receive a half point bye for round 1.

Results will be added to the website at http://nobleparkchess.org.au/ClubTournaments/2019T3WinterSwiss/index.html as the tournament progresses.

In the close and hard fought board 3 game Narenthran vs Mehta (last to finish), the following position occurred:

8/8/R7/5k1P/8/4P2r/4K3/8 b - - 0 1

Black, to play, can draw (solution in white text below, highlight to display!) but missed it in the game.




1...Rxh5! and if 2 Ra5+ then 2...Ke4, 3 Rxh5 would be stalemate!

Leontyev - Wallis was last to finish.

Leon came close to a draw on numerous occasions; especially 34 Kc2! was a good chance.

Some family themed pairings have come up this week, Team Manivannan plays Team Cron on boards 5 and 6, while Ethan has been paired with Kathleen.

We have also replenished the club's previously dwindling supply of tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits (free for all participants and spectators)!

Remember also that the following Saturday (24th of August) we are holding the Knights Cup (7-round, time control 10 + 3, event) at 3 pm, all ages welcome.
