Yes Fluedy was there, and did not win (anything), because we don't have a best seniors prize in Lightning.

I wasn't with him all evening but I did hear the following excuses to add to the scrap-book
> he is to 'old'
>> he has never been able to move the pieces fast enough
>>> he left a piece 'en prise'.

There were probably more but..... :uhoh: ...... he might think I am sledging.

Box Hill Chess Club AGM was lightly attended when held 6 April 2004. The current committee was returned unopposed and Norm Wilson takes up the job of Secretary after an absence of a few years.

The fee structure recommended by the 'old' Committee was accepted at
$65/year subs ($50 concession)
$20 joining fee.

Geoff Saw raised good points from the floor about transition of juniors to senior ranks. He also floated good ideas about further opportunities for volunteering at BHCC.

Best Club-man award was won by Adrian Turner, who is not enjoying good health at the moment. We wish him the best recovery possible.

Organisers of the Box Hill Championship were extended when 90 entrants registered for the first evening 16 April 2004. The increase was all the more surprising because the first round is in the middle of school holidays, close to Easter and clashing with the junior events in Canberra.

The increase in entries will push the prize money well over $600, with first prize likely to be $200.

Any further late entrants should contact club officials as catch-up is possible this coming Tuesday, or even tomorrow since the Club is open all day for various events and coaching.

Another point of notable interest this week was the arrival of WINTER in Melbourne. This season is not known to Northern and Western States, but is very conducive to chess enjoyment.

The normal pattern here was that Marcel would get really nice positions against good players with the White pieces then get scared of the clock and concede a draw. I was lucky not to lose my last two games against him ... which is more than can be said for the goat. :whistle:

Hey starter whats the go with the new season swiss.
In the SP files round 3 shows that:
Susan Sheng 0:1 Rob McCulloch
Thomas Poole 1:0 Sharyn Lee
Rye Senjen 0:1 Bryan Lee
Jason Lee 1:0 Matthew Tran

but then also in round 3

Rye Senjen 0.5:0.5 Susan Sheng
Matthew Tran 0:1 Thomas Poole

Now the last two results dont show in the round results on the Box Hill web site.
However as usual the SP cross table is a mess even on your web site.
It shows McCulloch played Shenh but Sheng played Senjen who is shown playing Sheng as well as Bryan Lee. It also shows Tran playing Poole and Poole playing Tran but also that Jason Lee played Tran and that Sharyn Lee played Poole. Lastly although Poole is the only one to score 2 points from his games in the round the cross table effectively robs him of 1 point for all his games played..

What is going on and what are you lunatics up to. :whistle:
If you are going to re-pair certain players(and I cannot see why that happened since all these games were actually played) then surely you should be entering these in an extra 8th round so that all their points are correctly counted.

Can you explain this.

I told you WINTER had come to Melbourne and as you know from evidence in Iceland that insufficient sun affects the pineal gland and sends you temp. mental. So, just bear with us until the sap rises in the Spring and we will resume normal transmission.

thE HUNK

It is hard to work out what Richard Voon would have been concerned about as Box Hill has not accelerated a SWISS for quite a few years.

What we do allow is inter-pairing of the top (performed) players in B Division into the bottom (performing) players in A Division. To be honest this should not worry Richard as he is such a good player that he is never paired against these C quartile players in this way.

It is more likely that Richard is more interested in Box Hill increasing entry fees so that prize money is increased. Only then could he be tempted to trade-off the risk to his rating points from improving juniors.

for round 3 results,

Round 3
This was an amazing round for results. Usually by round 3 the SWISS pairings have settled down to very competitive games for the whole field. And this was the case for round 3. In fact, the mean absolute deviation of pairing differences was 230; a rather low figure compared with round 1. Competitive pairings usually produce upsets by the upstarts. But, what was amazing is that there were so few upsets.
I could only find Artem Nikolayevsky’s draw against Andrew Fitzpatrick, Vladimir Zacharczenko’s draw against David Creedon, Vanja Rozenblat’s draw against Casey Hickman, Eugene Schon’s draw against Udit Thakur. And then finally, one upset of note,right down the end of the room on board 40, Farn-Ling Khung defeated Fred Tischman.

I thought "leviathan" could be used figuratively for long-lived (and not necessarily large) entities. However, I concede I might be wrong (or rather that my usage might be unusual ;) ). I certainly didn't intend to infer anything w.r.t the corpulencence of JB or the other gentleman involved.

(I had to make up another word, but I think I got out of that one). :angel:

Leviathan may or not be better than using Behemoth or Chimera.. I may have suggested Methuselah or if you want to keep with the same theme, perhaps Ramuh :)

In the bottom half of the pairings there were good results too. Shaun Fielder took a full point from Ion Klprogge, Udit Thakur took the point against David Creedon, and Michael Collins upstaged Richard Martin.

These two players have passed the 'old and bold' stage and should now be referred to as 'venerable'. I think this is the word you should be using. :cool:

If they are both in the 70-90 bracket then that is venerable. However if one of them was John Butler of the JBT (who I know is around 30) then the other must have been ~140 which deserves a word stronger than venerable, don't you think?

We have an 87yo who is both venerable and "old and bold". A few weeks back he lost on time while overpressing for a win against a player who outrated him by about 450 points, having spurned a forced draw with about five mins left on his clock.

Good on him too, the goal in chess is to win, not draw. Even GM's forget that sometimes...

Round 5

What a great round of competitive chess we saw last Friday night. Board 2 was an exception where a short draw was agreed early. But on the 3rd board Svetozar Stojic had a good draw against Denis Bourmistrov.
Good wins to Peter Frost over Scot Sharman, and Marcel Rothlisberger over Leon Kempen. Before the round started our President quizzed me on how to beat Christopher Wallis; I didn’t know and apparently neither did the President; result 0-1.
A great win by Jusef Omeragic over junior-member Andrew Fitzpatrick, and similarly Rolf Exner over Michelle Lee. Trevor Chong accounted for Garry Lycett, whereas Peter Schultzer struggled for half a point against Zhigen Wilson Lin.
Rob McCulloch ended John Butler’s Trio of wins abruptly.
Finally, on board 31, we saw perhaps the contestants in the 2024 Victorian final; Chloe Lauder v Jerome Lugo, and a shared point the result.

Entries are rolling in for our hosting of the VICTORIAN OPEN. We have confirmed entries from Grandmaster Darryl Johansen, IMs Stephen Solomon, and Peter Froehlich, and many others you can see on the web-site. Enter early and receive the large early-bird discount.

Round 8 pairings.

With 2 rounds to go of the 9 round tournament we have a leader by 1.5 points. Is it all over bar the shouting.
BTW, he is not the first, second, nor the third seed; so that makes the performance to date even more startling. And he is not an under-rated junior!

See pairing and coss-table details at

The closest matched game tonight is
on board 3 > P Frost 1833 v M Campara 1838.

Perhaps the most interesting pairing is
on board 2 > Chris Wallis 1549 v Marcus Raine 1947. A battle of preparations.

Tim Anderson is the new Box Hill Chess Club CHAMPION.

Even with one round to go he cannot be caught or beaten. Well done Tim.

Five draws on the top 7 boards shows how competitive the chess is at Box Hill.

Board 22 saw the first upset as Rob McCulloch took points from Gary Lycett.

But the big result of the night for me was Laurie Dalton's win on board 32. And the best draw was right next door. Go jerome.

Final round of the Box Hill Championship tonight.

Pairings can be seen at
http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2004/e0404fcc/round9.htm

The tournament has already been won by Tim Anderson, and daylight is a clear second.

There are six players vying for bragging rights of second. Two of them are juniors; surprisingly they are not Denis Bourmistrov and John Nemeth as these are right down on board 7.

Game of the night for me is on board 25 where John Butler is white against Shaun Fielder. One for the eclectic collection I guess.

I also like the look of board 40 where Nathan Fell will tower over Shuyu Wang. Initially.

The next tournament to start at Box Hill, on Fridays, is the KNOCKOUT Rapid Play over four weeks.

Fresh from the success, in the well run BH Championship and the highly visible VIC OPEN, the club organisers now run a knock-out competition with two rounds per night and the losers cascade into a parallel running SWISS competition. I still have fond memory of Amiel standing with the flyer in his hand, looking at the attempted explanatory diagram on the back page. He was muttering "We have nothing like this in NSW".

Come along to the Club and play in this Rapid Play and watch the organisers melt-down as they attempt to keep track of proceedings.
Although the event is a knockout competition, you are assured of 2 games per night for four weeks.

I'm familiar with this system, it's called a 'Reparcharge' or something right? We once used it here for the QLD Championships, seemed pretty good.

hi BD
I think the word is repecharge (but not in my Dic.'y).
And I had the same thought when the system was described to me by an (ex-Poland) Club member at Box Hill.

The term is used in bike-racing quite a bit, and seems to be a route by which the best loser can get back into the main game.

However, our Box Hill Clayton's KNOCKOUT is a little different in that a losing player gets cascaded down to a parallel running SWISS rather than repecharged back into the KNOCKOUT. (Now don't ask me how many points the loser is given if he enters the SWISS on evening #2 into round 3........I have only got 45 minutes for lunch... :rolleyes: )

Some people can understand it from the diagram ;) .

Yes, we employed the same system with the transference of losers to a swiss and someone able to win that swiss as a separate event ot the championships.
