Breaking News - Unfortunately the Nerang RSL venue advertised above is now unavailable at this time due to Covid but the GCCC committee is currently exploring options for another venue for 2021 and will update this thread when our new venue is secured.

Is this new venue fully air-conditioned, or,... just ceiling fans, or,... nothing? ;)

Fully air conditioned

and it's a real beauty, well lit and reachable too! Was google searching the venue the other day when planning possible entry. (haven't rejected the thought yet!)
A real pleasure to play in this venue, chosen to confirm once again the class, quality and generally very high standards of GCCC!

A six week Gold Coast break in this time of the year sounds so good. 6:30 pm starts in playing days gives you all the time you want to enjoy the lovely surroundings with so many things to see and do!

Feb+Mar are the worst months for humidity here though. That's why I asked about aircon in the venue.

Heh, if you stay at the Sanctuary Cove Intercontinental I'd drive you to/from the venue (assuming you're a non-smoker!). :)

Although,... SC is not exactly close to Robina, nor Surfers Paradise, so it might depend on how you'd want to spend the rest of the time. For me, lounging around the incredible 1-acre pool at the SC Intercontinental, with full bar service, and many fine dining choices in the SC Village, doesn't sound too bad. :cool:

Hey Rep first thanks for you kind willingness to help. I really appreciate it.

Plan is I will be staying at Robina only on playing evenings. Have already inquired (not booked) at Quest Robina.

It's only 1.6 Km to the venue about a 15 minute walk and there's also a bus service!

Plan is to have week lasting accommodation bases at South Sunshine Coast, Surfers, Gold Coast, Brissy and maybe Cairns. Not necessarily in that order.

The areas I have chosen to include in my visit plan are amongst others (again not necessarily in that order) Buderim, Caloundra, Noosa and others, all of which I have visited and played there or nearby in the past.

However, and most importantly the final decision hasn't yet been made.

Cheers!

Oh btw I am neither a smoker, nor a drinker! :D :P

Club Announcement: Due to our recent difficulty with space and covid capacity the GCCC Committee has decided to instate the following rule for juniors wishing to play at the club.

1- Any junior player aged under 13 years old must have reached at one time a QJ rating of 1000.

This rule is in force at the club from today forward until such a time that our capacity and restrictions on space are lifted. It is our intent to be able to lift this rating restriction in the future.

To explain further a player under 13 years old may enter tournaments at the GCCC if their QJ rating is currently over 1000 or if their rating in the past was once over 1000. Inquiries related to this new rule are kindly directed to our club president, Marek Breeden.

Just to clarify... is the GCCC 2021 Challenger event definitely an ACF/FIDE rated event?
(The opening post in this thread says yes, but the GCCC webpage appears silent on this point.)

Also, are there any other eligibility requirements not currently stated on the webpage, such as "must be a financial member of GCCC",
and/or "must be a financial member of CAQ", etc?

I believe the tournament will be ACF rated not FIDE rated.

You will likely need to be a member of GCCC and if you wish to play any tournaments that are rated in QLD you must be a financial member of CAQ ($20 per year) this applies to clubs and standalone tournaments

Hi Strangerep The entry system is working fine but the ticket number isn't currently ticking over. The tournament is ACF rated only as Shaun94 mentioned above. There are only 30 spots available due to Covid.

Yes -- it's weird. This morning it says "Total seats 80 (78 left)".



FM Dusan Stojic 2244
[...]

On the website, Dusan Stojic is listed as the arbiter. I thought that an arbiter is automatically ineligible to compete? Or has someone else taken over as arbiter?

Hmm. Tbh, I was kinda hoping for a stronger lineup. Until your message, I'd intended to wait until Thurs evening and (possibly) register at the event -- depending on the strength of the top end.

If it's not too much trouble, would you post an updated list tomorrow (Tue) and I'll make a decision then (if places still remain). :)

Thu 15th April - Opening Theme Night
What exactly are the rules for "Opening Theme Night"? (I couldn't find details on the GCCC website.)

What exactly are the rules for "Opening Theme Night"? (I couldn't find details on the GCCC website.)

We use a deck of cards which has 50 openings in it. We remove some of the less interesting openings. Out of the remaining cards 1 card is randomly drawn for each round. The card includes the suggested replies to the opening which we also read out. All boards then must commence from the opening position on the card. We will play a rapid time control of 13 min +2 seconds. It is always a fun night.

We remove some of the less interesting openings. Heh, so which ones do you call "less interesting"? The closed/dragon/Najdorf Sicilians? The Spanish torture (Ruy Lopez)? The Joking Piano (except Fried Liver/Traxler, of course)? The entire London system? The King's Gambit declined, i.e., black *must* accept the gambit? (Hey, there's another idea: a "Gambit Night" where all openings are gambits, or counter gambits, and the (unlucky?) player is required to accept the gambit. (Brush up on your Urusov/Nakhmanson/Stafford. :eek:)

Might one have to play a Grub ;)? An Orangutan? Or maybe an Elephant or Hippopotamus? (I refer to the openings, not the opponents. :P)

(Sigh.) To my shame, I could go on, and on... :whistle:

It was a good battle with plenty of chances and mistakes on both sides! Gene certainly missed a couple of wins there in time trouble. Wow, that was quite sharp at that critical moment in the middle game. The missed killer move 21. Qb3+, as you annotated, must have stung Gene quite badly in post-game analysis. (Was Gene already in time trouble at that relatively-early stage?)

Also, in your pgn, at first I wondered why the black knight didn't capture the white rook on e5, i.e., 22... Nxe5 . After the 23. fxe5 pawn recapture, with tempo on the black Q, then 23... Qd1 24. Bh6+ Kh8 25. Bxf8 Rxf8, but then what? Is there a further followup tactic I'm missing, or would play just continue into an endgame with white being better due to the central passed pawn?

Wow, that was quite sharp at that critical moment in the middle game. The missed killer move 21. Qb3+, as you annotated, must have stung Gene quite badly in post-game analysis. (Was Gene already in time trouble at that relatively-early stage?)
Gene was in time trouble quite early - eg at move 16 when he had a critical decision, he had about 20 min before playing c5 and was down to about 12-23 min after c5. I had about 35 min at that stage. At move 21, he was down to 1-2 min so not too surprising he missed Qb3+. I was ahead on time most of the game, but we were both on "bare increment" - ie <10 sec around moves 30-37.


Also, in your pgn, at first I wondered why the black knight didn't capture the white rook on e5, i.e., 22... Nxe5 . After the 23. fxe5 pawn recapture, with tempo on the black Q, then 23... Qd1 24. Bh6+ Kh8 25. Bxf8 Rxf8, but then what? Is there a further followup tactic I'm missing, or would play just continue into an endgame with white being better due to the central passed pawn?
You pretty much answered your own question there. Gene's idea was to give up the exchange on e5 to open up his dark-squared bishop and get powerful central pawns. Therefore it makes sense for Black to delay taking on e5 until more favourable circumstance presents itself. By capturing on e3, I managed to win an exchange without allowing White to get the protected passed pawn and open up his dark-squared bishop.
