3985The Ballarat Begonia Open is a favourite amongst Australia's chess players. Many of Australia's GMs, IMs and FMs and a sprinkling of OS GMs have expressed interest in competing, as well as our regular cohort of supporters. GM Ian Rogers will provide Live Commentary again as it proved so popular in previous years. Peter Tsai will be our chief arbiter, and we are moving the venue downtown to Ballarat Tech School at 136 Albert Street. This is a great new space, right behind downtown Ballarat - convenient for cafes, restaurants and public transport.
Labour Day weekend in 2020 is March 7 to 9, so book your accommodation now!
For registration and more information about accommodation, the new venue and more, go to https://www.ballaratchess.com/begonia/2020/index.html
Begonia Flyer - please download (https://www.ballaratchess.com/begonia/2020/flyer2020.pdf) and distribute at your club.

^^ That's great to hear ER!

I thought you would like the new venue, it being centrally located and only a block away from the older venue.
A nice touch by the organisers was to include a picture of the late Richard Voon (right hand side, middle) in the flyer.
Richard evidently loved playing in the tournament as he was a regular fixture for many years!
A nice salute to Solo too.

Remember to quote the author! :)


Dear Organisers, I have decided to blunder my queen and no longer require any byes.

When you fix a mistake that can only be resolved with money its called paying an idiot fine. "Mr Wohl"

Thanks Brodie, I'll make sure I pass this on to Peter.

For anyone else wanting a half-point bye in the first round, would you please email the organisers to ensure it is recorded? (I can't ensure that this thread will be checked at the last minute).

OK, I'm about to head off to Ballarat now.
It looks like great weather over the long weekend, with temperatures ranging from 8 overnight to 20, and minimal chance of rain.
Best of luck to all competitors.

The way Jack has been playing in the first 5 rounds, you should be entitled to post this in the ''Money'' thread of the forum as an example of good investment!

Thanks, unfortunately, there's no chess related market and I don't mean betting market (although that could be a future possibility).
I am thinking in terms more in line of just a co-operative investment little project run in its entirety
as a non profit organization by ACF, Clubs and coaching schools.
I am transferring this to an appropriate thread since it has nothing to do with the Ballarat Begonia Open

Round 6 this morning.

IM Chapman,Mark (SA) vs FM Puccini, Jack (VIC)

Don't miss this replay of their 2016 Doeberl Cup encounter

For historical purposes the then 16 yo Jack had utilized all his skills to defeat his formidable opponent in an interesting Scheveningen Sicilian.
Here is the game (I was there watching it)! :)

White: Mark Chapman
Black: Jack Puccini

in Solomon-Jaeger, I thought Rd4 instead of Nb5 was winning on the spot..but I could be wrong.

Yes, I noticed that.

The live commentary room with Ian Rogers was great - does he do it at the Doeberl Cup as well?

Is isn't that a Gruenfeld?White's second move makes it the East Indian Defence (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Indian_Defence) (West Indians don't believe in defence!), which can transpose into a King's Indian or Grunfeld (as well as others).

White's second move makes it the East Indian Defence (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Indian_Defence) (West Indians don't believe in defence!), which can transpose into a King's Indian or Grunfeld (as well as others).

Oh ok, I thought it was Black's … d5 that decides the Grunfeld set up. Actually after 2Nf3 I have noticed that black often prefers the QID with … b6. Thanks anyway!
(bzzt had Windies got it their way they 'd introduce bouncers in chess! I have been on the receiving end, my godson was an expert at it when he was learning the moves and got bored of it!)

HAHAHAHA
12-03-2020, 10:30 PM
Is isn't that a Gruenfeld?

Yes it is, via transposition
8. Rb1 is the modern main line of the exchange variation.
But ECO makes a headache out of such things by looking at the very first moves out of context.

HAHAHAHA

Great comeback to chess by Jesse! Note that he played some MCC allegro as part of the warm-up!

Seconded. Nice mating net against Solo. Suspect his warm up was more than just the allegro but congrats nevertheless.

Thank you HAHAHAHA;463140 my Fritz 15 also does that sometimes suggesting 2 and in some cases 3 different opening code numbers during the first say 10-12 moves!

Yes, I estimate that this has not been working for approx. 90 minutes at least. The "Open Results" menu option on the site has not been working either for the same time period.

Yes, there was an issue in Round 6 when the entire Ballarat Chess Club website went down, Rob Loveband was on the phone to the hosting company for around 45 minutes getting it resolved.
