Any predictions on who will win / major contendors?

It's hard to go past Ian Rogers. It's a few years since he last won it, so I'm sure he will be motivated - after all, he won't want Darryl to get too far ahead on the all time Champs list. That said, it would be great to see a win by one of the IMs - especially since it would probably take a GM norm to do it.

My Predictions

Championships: Chandler, Murray GM ENG 2542 249 BCF*
Major: Marner, Gavin NZL 1975 2044 NZCF
Senior: Lovejoy, David QLD 2044 1778
Minor: Low, Brandon SA 932
Aus Rapid: Davidovici, Victor QLD 1861
Aus Lightning: Ly, Moulthun QLD 2117 2071

Aus Junior: Ly, Moulthun U16 QLD 2071
Under 12: Yuan, Yi U12 ACT 1450 / James Morris (If he is playing)
Australian Girls: Oliver, Tamzin U16 ACT 1242 / Russel Luthiem (If playing)/ Sally Yu (If Playing)
Girls Under 12: Simmonds, Leteisha U10 QLD unr (Only player)
Junior Rapid: Ly, Moulthun U16 QLD 2071
Junior Lightning: Ly, Moulthun U16 QLD 2071 / Rukman Vijaykumar (if playing)

Won't comment too much on the adult side, although I agree Moulthun could win the Lightning. However there will be plenty of competition for him.

Junior events are fiendishly hard to pick. I would say the Under 18 could be won by any one of about 5 kids, with another 6 as serious contenders. Moulthun, Vincent Suttor, Junta Ikeda, Ronald Yu, James Obst would be my favourites (and Gareth of course :) )

Under 12 will be interesting. With neither James Morris or Eugene Schon likely to play the under 12, I think it will be a tussle between ACT players Yi Yuan and Edward Xing.

The girls is anyone's guess - they all stress so much, that it often becomes very random. I understand that Sally Yu will play the Under 18, rather than the under 12 and Emma Guo might do the same. This leaves the under 12 pretty open to a new star. In the under 18, Vaness will be a contender if she plays (and maybe Bec Harris will play again?). Alex Jule is a tough player and probably under performed in Mt Buller this year. Dark horses are Tamzin, Jessica Kinder and Luthien Russell. Molly McGarity can perform very well and she never seems to stress, so will have an advantage. Sophie Eustace has had a big increase in rating, but I don't have a great feel for her strength at the moment. Kayleigh, Sally, Emma and Sophie are all capable of very good tournaments.

You seem to be from QLD, aren't you? I think there is no more than 20% chance that just one adult competition will be won by a QLD player, while you are saying 3 out of 6. In addition, 4 out of 6 junior competitions. I start thinking maybe I should move to QLD because the best australian chess players must be there.:)

And Moulthun will need to pull off a superhuman feat to win both the Lightning and the Junior Lightning (which are simultaneous).

I think Sophie Eustace is still a little bit weaker than Alex Jule, Vaness Reid and Bec Harris, so I would not give her much of a chance of winning if more than one of that group plays. She probably has as much chance as anyone outside that group though.
I also believe Heather Huddleston and Angela Song still qualify. Any thoughts on whether they might play.

Apart from Schools chess you won't see Heather play again until she finishes year 12.

Angela I am fairly certain will play the Open under 18. She is still eligible for the Open under 14 title, which should make it quite interesting.

You are a brave person to make all these predictions :eek: Nice to see your support for your fellow Victorian Sally Yu. She is a cutie and a good player, although I think second place overall is a bit of a big ask.....Still you never know with juniors. Jessica Kinder has still to enter, and she is another player who has improved hugely this year. The girls under 14 will be a very tough category to win, with so many good girls with very little difference between them.

Frank Walker

The girl has vastly improved, recently won a qualfying tournament

The girl has vastly improved, recently won a qualfying tournamentShe has indeed, but so have many of the other girls. This is what it makes it so much fun. My prediction on the girls? It is going to be a long slog, with lots of tears and lots of upsets. Possibly the girl who wins will be the one who stresses the least. This would favour Jess, Sally, Deborah and Sophie, who seem quite calm players.

These championships provide an opportunity to make a judgement as to how
effective the Ergas Training camp was.

I predict the majority of Ergas participants will perform well above their ratings
in Queensland.

Best of luck to all of them. They were a great group of kids. Also best wishes
to all the coaches, they put so much in.

It's using CODE. Just quote mine and remove everything except the table, and you can easily add in extra rounds by putting the score for that round before the current total, pressing space twice and then updating the total.

Default = black on every board.

In the FWCC tipping we removed names who defaulted 4 times in succession.

Unfortunately the draw changed, and only eight boards stayed unchanged. Perhaps it's a void round for tipping? Or a round of eight?

But why was it changed? There is some controversy surrounding this which caused the organisers to send a letter of apology.
