Round 3 will be played on October 5th, all bye requests for the Challengers should be made by Wednesday October 2nd 10 pm as the pairings may be released after that time - byes not granted after pairings have been released unless we have made a mistake.

Next week will be a Knights Cup rapid tournament (3 pm to 7 pm, 7 rounds), open to both adults and juniors, and the following week the club will be closed due to the AFL Grand Final.

Here is the terrific game between Eduardo Toro and Kai Tan from the Challengers, which went for just over four hours.

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Nxe5 d6 4. Nf3 Nxe4 5. d4 d5 6. Bd3 Be7 7. O-O Nd6 8.
Nc3 Be6 9. Re1 O-O 10. Ne2 c6 11. c3 Nd7 12. Qc2 g6 13. Ng3 Bg4 14. Ne5 Nxe5
15. dxe5 Ne8 16. Bh6 Ng7 17. h3 Be6 18. Ne2 Re8 19. Bf4 Bg5 20. Qd2 Bxf4 21.
Qxf4 c5 22. Rad1 Qb6 23. Rd2 Rad8 24. Bb1 Rd7 25. g4 Qc6 26. b3 Red8 27. Kh2 b6
28. Red1 Qb7 29. Ng1 Qc7 30. Qg3 d4 31. c4 h5 32. f4 Kh7 Too risky. 33. Nf3 (
33. f5 gxf5 34. Nf3 leads to a crushing attack against Black's king, and this
f5 break could similarly have been played on the following two moves.) 33...
Rh8 34. Ng5+ Kg8 35. Nxe6 Nxe6 Now Black is OK again. 36. g5 (Trying to
keep the pawns mobile with 36. Kg1 allows 36...hxg4 37. hxg4 Qd8 , when Black
has some serious threats like ...Qh4, ...g5, and ...d3 to open d4 for the
knight.) 36... Ng7 37. Qg2 Re7 38. Be4 Kh7 39. Qf3 Rhe8 40. Bc6 Rd8 41. Be4
Kg8 42. Bd5 a6 43. Be4 b5 44. Qd3 Ne6 45. Qf1 Probably an oversight but Black
will have to be careful after the g-file opens! (45. Rf1 would be a better
way to offer the pawn, 45...Nxg5 (45... Ng7 looks safer.) 46. Bd5 Ne6 47. Qg3
would then give White a serious attack, though Black could probably hold on.)
45... Nxg5 46. Bd5 Ne6 47. Qf3 Ng7 48. Rg1 Kh7 49. Be4 (49. Rdg2 applies
greater pressure.) 49... bxc4 50. bxc4 Rb8 51. Rg5 Kg8 52. Bd5 Rb6 53. Rdg2
Kh8 54. Be4 Qb8 Black has done a good job consolidating his position, now
White plays an unsound sacrifice: 55. Bxg6 fxg6 56. Rxg6 Rxg6 57. Rxg6 Qb2+
58. Rg2 Qc3 White has enough for a draw now. (Black would be winning after 58... Qb7
.) 59. Qa8+ Re8 60. Qxa6 Qd3 61. Qf6 Rg8 62.
e6 (62. Rg6 doesn't work, due to 62...Qe2+ and Black will keep checking unless
White returns the rook.) 62... Qe4 63. e7 Kh7 Forced. Now Eduardo appeared
to have forgotten about his clock but suddenly moved at the last possible
instant... 64. Qf7 d3 (
Black could still have drawn with 64... Kh8 65. Rxg7 Qe2+ 66. Kh1 Qe1+ , etc.
) 65. Rxg7+ Rxg7 66. Qxh5+ Kg8 67. e8=Q+ Qxe8 68. Qxe8+ Kh7 69. Qe4+ Black
resigns. *

Unfortunately, due to low numbers, it is impossible to pair the final round of the Challengers (we were hoping this would not happen, due to the number of byes that had been taken, but there were too few players after further withdrawals), so we will have to declare the tournament finished after round 8 and no need for any Challengers players to come in tomorrow.

I have calculated the final standings based on scores out of 7 (also I have corrected the Vega scores for this round's results, now it excludes all points from games with withdrawn players).
