The first round was a good argument for acceleration, with only 3 upsets out of almost 40 games - not surprising with rating differences of 1 000 points on many boards. Although there was an upset win against a titled player.

I said before the tournament to Mark I didn't want to play because of being in a foul mood. I said after round 2 that if I don't win round 3 then I'm withdrawing.
Managed to turn a relatively simple winning position into a losing one and fought had to draw.
I had seen a win but kept second guessing myself.
Despite not having fun and playing badly and being home sick I'm going to continue but have no idea how badly I will play tomorrow.
Time will tell...

Lol I was winning on move 6 and plus 5 of move 22.

Completely winning again and lost. I'm never playing on a dgt board again because I hate the aesthetic.

Brodie - it is not about winning and losing - how you play the game matters a great deal more.

Congratulations to the joint winners of the 82 player 2021 Wendy Terry Memorial, GM Daniel Fernandez and IM Stephen Solomon, who both scored 5.5 but unfortunately did not play each other. Daniel drew with Yi Liu in round 5 and Stephen drew with Byron Morris in R3. Sharing equal 3rd on a very creditable 5 points each were Aiden Brady, Jayden Ooi and Micah Young! Gail Young kindly increased the advertised 3 rating groups to 5 rating groups due to the large turn out. Group A was won by Micah Young on 5 points, Group B was won by Michael McGee on 4 points, Group C was won by Owen Shen on 4 points, Group D was shared by Elaina Qiang and Mathew Smith on 3 points, Group E was won by Kontaro Inukai on 4 points (Wow!) and the unrated prize was won by Taylor Reilly on 3.5 points. All prizewinners are reminded to text or email Gail Young your bank account details. A big thank-you to Chief Arbiter David Esmonde and Assistant Arbiter Max Kershaw on jobs really well done, Gail Young from the QWCL for organizing yet another very well attended Wendy Terry Memorial and David Esmonde again for also transmitting the top 6 boards virtually live all weekend long and updating everyone with all the pairings and progress results on the Redcliffe Chess Club Website. See the live games link above if you wish to replay some very hard fought games from this event.

Thank you to QWCL and Redcliffe CC for another fantastic event! In addition to Mark's comments above, I want to congratulate Alexavier Ly-Liu for his gritty win against IM Brodie McClymont in Round 4. I have played against most of the top juniors in Queensland and it's like trying to hold back a rising tide! When I can pull off the occasional win I am happy! (Sorry Zerui!) I'm already looking forward to the next event at Redcliffe - the Leo Wilkinson Memorial (Sept 25-26).

And people can play chess OTB rather than sit in lockdown :). Hopefully this Tuesday we will be out of jail too!
