Hi All,
ACF has just voted to accept the SAJCL/SACA bid to host the Australian Junior early 2009.

The name as per thread title is Lidums Australian Junior Chess Championships 2009.

It will be held between January 2nd and January 13th 2009 at St Ignatius school in Athelstone above the smog line in the Adelaide foothills which is about 20 - 25 mins drive from the city with a bus route within a few metres of the front door.

The venue can comfortably seat 300 at a chess tournament is airconditioned and has a parquetry sprung floor so the noise of feet is soft.

We will have 2 classrooms available for analysis each holding about 40 children.

Tennis courts will be available and the foothills setting gives a surrounding of quiet reflection with lots of room for children to play.

Snacks food etc will be available next to the venue and run hopefully by the school as a fundraiser or we will organise similar facilities.

Alan Goldsmith will be the Chief Organiser and Charles and Roland the Arbiters.

There will only be 1 double round day the rest will be single round days with two rest days.

Full information will be available on the South Australian Junior Chess League Inc website at sajuniorchess.org as soon as is practical.

Kindest Regards

I think they are reasonably up to date, no more than a week out.

The Australian Juniors are in Adelaide from the 2nd to the 13th of January
The Australian Open and under 1600 tournament, which this thread is about is in Sydney from the 2nd to the 11th of January. The Queenstown Classic is on in Queenstown, New Zealand from the 15th of January onwards.

only 81 juniors are playing. Thats sad. I was expecting about a hundred to play.

Some of the top under 12 players from NSW are playing in Sydney and Justin Tan is playing in Queenstown, meaning the under 12s is looking a bit weak at the top. Anton would currently be 3rd seed. Yi Liu has just entered to be the new top seed.
Scott

In the under 10 essentially only Anton is missing. Everybody else who is strong enough to compete is present. Sean Gu (NSW) is a clear favorite with Daniel Lapitan (QLD), Callum Gray (QLD) and Ethan Derwent (ACT) having some chances. Well, Sean has always been the favorite. The only reason Anton got the under 8 title 2 years ago was because Sean did not play.

In the under 8 division I think the clear favorite is Jasper Hong (NSW), who has a NSWJCL rating of 627 (that translates to about 1200 ACF). His main rival will probably be Glen Guxue Qi (ACT).

The biggest shortage of players is in the under 12 section. In fact only the highest rated player Yi Liu (QLD) will be playing, with 5-6 strong kids missing. It is probably would make sense to combine the under 12 section into the under 18, leaving the under 10 separate.

Yes, I am.

I did so badly last year.... hopefully I have a better tourney this time round!

I'm going through the Silman books, slowly but surely... and I think I'm improving! I just broke 1500 on ICC, which I guess is a good start... :)

I won't comment on your analysis of the players, but there has been no discussion of doing anything to change the current structure of the two open events. I personally don't think it makes much sense to change the tournaments this late in the piece.

I obviously was not serious about changing the format at such a late date. I was just commenting that it is essentilly under 10 championship with only 1 strong player from under 12 who will most likely have a picket fence.

I somehow get the feeling that there might be a couple of relative unknowns (at least from a NSW perspective) who will make every effort to ensure that does not happen;)

West Australian 11 year old Ryan Sam is the latest entry to the under 12s and so far is the second seed with his 1600 rating.

Other entries are coming in as well, with the under 12 girls gaining its seventh player and first SA player. I believe that another SA girl is planning to play, although not certain until the entry is in, but this makes only 8. Plenty of room for more girls.

Entries have continued to come in and it is good to see the smallest tournament, the under 12 girls reach 10.

All players are asked to register at the venue between 11:30am - 12:30pm on friday before the first round.

There will be room in venue during the problem solving so it has been decided that adults an also undertake the solving. Room might be limited depending on how many of juniors end up being involved. Juniors will get first preference. I think there will be a small prize in the adult section.

I am at the venue now and I will endeavour to keep people updated with results, pairing, games and maybe even a few photos as my other duties allow.
The tournament is just starting and I think number got to 100 exactly in main tournaments. The two girls tournaments are going to be played as 9 round tournaments. The under 18 girls a swiss and the under 12s as a 2 10 player round robin.

Congratulations to Chess Chatter Miranda, who beat a much more highly rated player. I suspect Miranda's rating is artificially low.

This is the game (which in the PGN is incorrectly shown as a win to Black):

There is no question that Sally will win this with eyes closed! Will she make it clean sheet though? For placings Leteisha will be there and don't be surprised if Natasha (keep on concentrating Tash :) ) makes the cut too!

Yes, Sally's the clear favourite although Sophie Eustace and Tamzin Oliver might give her a run for her money too...
Congrats Miranda on your win in round 1 (not that I'm surprised at all :))

Nice win and well calculated mating pattern. Interesting how the superficially strong looking 8...Nd4 in fact totally loses because black has to take on f3 to win the exchange and then the black queenside gets demolished.

1 game still going in both the under 12 girls and under 12 open, but so far there has only been 1 major upset. Sean Gu dropped a rook in a winning endgame to lose against Ethan Derwent. Jana Pretorius is still playing against second seed Mirakla Mithran in the under 12 girls.
Miranda has won her game against unrated Isabella Man.
Cedric won his game convincingly against Tom Milton.

Miranda has won her game against unrated Isabella Man.
That's worth another "congratulations". It seems that our horse-loving friend Miranda may be the dark horse of the Girls U16 tournament. Good luck!

When you've got a moment Jon, we should talk about your scarf at the opening ceremony ;)One of our main sponsors is the Manly Warringah Rugby League Club and one of the speakers in the opening ceremony was the Chairman. As a member, I showed my loyalty to the premier league club in the country! But I still prefer soccer!

The lady in the photo on the tournament website playing 1 e2-e4 is the Deputy Mayor of Manly Adele Heasman (who I know through Christian circles - Jono she is Greg Stigter's sister) who declared the tournament open in the time-honoured way by playing the first move on Board 1. (I checked with Mark Chapman what move he wished to play!)

Milton missed 14...Ng3! with a small edge to black, the point being to eliminate the white bishop for the bad black knight rather than allowing it to eliminate itself for the good one. After that it is one-way traffic; 17...Qa5 loses queen for rook and piece because if the queen retreats after 18.Rg5 then there is Rxh5 and the rook is immune. Losing queen for rook and piece might not sound too bad but in this case black's pieces are not coordinated and there are lots of holes. Still white makes it look easier than it is.

Vincent is still underrated as he showed by tying for first in the Tasmanian Open 2008 with the better side of draws against two 2000s players. Unfortunately that event was rated in the same list as a much larger Burnie club event where he had not performed so well (possibly tired from school etc) and so he actually went down slightly in that list.

Milton missed 14...Ng3! with a small edge to black,There is no such thing as a small edge in this opening. It's unclear until someone is getting mated. White has h5-etc, black has that strong knight on c4. I am guessing black should romp it in, that is a guess, maybe white is clearly winning.
the point being to eliminate the white bishop for the bad black knight rather than allowing it to eliminate itself for the good one.Black is busted after Nc4; he has lost two tempo over the normal lines with Bc4-Bb3-Bxc4. Ng3 gets black the ability to keep a knight on c4, which is unusual in this opening.

Yes, I should have said "an apparently slightly better chance of being the one to smash the opponent". :D

The main line I was looking at was 14...Ng3 15.Bxg7 Kxg7 16.Rg1 Nxf1 17.Rdxf1 Nc4 18.Qd3. I thought this looked pretty good for Black but now I don't think so. Black does have ...Ne5 when white can either repeat or play Qc1 which looks a bit on the back foot. If Black tries something else, I don't know, I just feel more scared now when I turn the board around than with white.

(I had some cc game where I felt the same way and black smashed me though.)

(I had some cc game where I felt the same way and black smashed me though.)Tough position as always for a dragon. Black's kingside looks relatively ok, I think it should hold together for a few moves. The knight to c4 (maybe not right away, though) looks like it should be a monster, but I am not sure how to co-ordinate black to use it. Also Nb3 looks like it could be a strong defensive move at some point.

What happened today, Scott?

What happened to the kings? That is the question everyone is asking. I was the first offical into the tournament hall this morning and discovered someone had stolen the kings, both black and white, off almost all the boards, almost 100 kings. The board numbers and name labels had also been moved randomly throughout the play hall.
They were not found and noone seems to have any idea who or why.
If anyone has any information please contact me by PM or post here.

We managed to scrap together enough kings to get all the main 4 tournaments going only slightly late. Unfortunately we have a lot of yellow looking kings amoungst very white weighted sets. The novice tournament which I am running had to start half an hour late. Kings had to brought from the SA chess center.

It has been a very dissappointing day, just like yesterday would have been for you with your dramas.

Hi Scott,

The last time I heard of this being done, which was many years ago, the kings were found in a cardboard box behind, or around a TV. I have no reason to believe that this is the case this time....but maybe worth a look?!

I actually did little, it was mostly Charles, Roland, Alan Goldsmith, Cathy Rogers and others who set up the hall and went through the analysis rooms collecting kings from every sets. Thanks to everyone who helped.

Thanks for the help. I am not aware of any TV's in the relevant area. There was a search made of areas made were someone might have put them if it was a prank and they were meant to be found quickly. There are quite few almost new sets that might have been destroyed if they don't turn up. It has caused alot of extra work and cost quite a bit of money if the sets have to be completely replaced.

Does anyone no whether kings can be bought by themselves?

It can be done. Talk to your local chess dealer first (Alan G?) - unlikely he'll have that many spares in stock, but he can add 50 kings to his next order from the Chinese manufacturer

When I was trading, I had an order once for 2000 white kings, for use with an advertising campaign and needed in a hurry. I made the sale

Hi Scott,

Its all been arranged between Bill and Graeme. Bill will email Graeme if the kings dont turn up before the end and Graeme when back in Queensland can get the necessary kings from the Chinese suppliers. A lot of inconvenience and a modest cost SACA doesnt need to its almost new sets.

I checked the creek with no sign of the kings.

All i can say is I hope I dont get my hands on the blighter who pinched the kings.

I think you could call this the "Great King Robbery!!"

I remember when this was done in Victoria. It caused considerable angst. I was all set to drive to Gippsland with a mass of kings. Although there were strong suspicians as to who was responsible I cannot name the person due to the law called libel. I hope that you find the kings and the person or persons responsible.

Lightning tomorrow will be interesting, I know Victoria has some quite strong blitz players.

Were there any other notable results?

In the under 18 open Dalton and Antolis drew. They played 51 pointless rook moves after reaching a drawn rook and pawn ending, Antolis twice rejected draw offers. Yi Yuan beat Jason Tang, Andrew Brown beat Gene Nakauchi and Sam Grigg drew with Jonas Muller.

The Open under 12 got alot more interesting with Sean Gu beating Yi Liu despite playing a breakneck speed. They are now joint leaders.

The Girls under 18 saw Sally extend her lead to a full point after she beat Veronica Williams and Tamzin Oliver beat Sophie Eustace.

The full results, pairings and games should be on the website sometime tonight.

There was no development on the missing kings, but nothing else has gone missing. The thief should punished as it is going to take quite alot of work to try and match the scavanged kings back with their proper sets. It has certainly made ruined my tournament.

Can we get the draw up soon either here or on the main website for all the tournaments? My coach had to go back to Canberra so he has to do all the prep tonight and we are moving places for where we are staying tomorrow so the sooner the better.

Cedric Antolis 2-0 Andrew Brown

Good on you Cedric!
the whole of Victoria is proud of you today!!!
Melbourne Chess Club, salute one of your greatest hopes for the future!

PS I mean no matter what, no other club can claim Cedric!!! After all I have witnessed him being severely punished for using a (solid but alas unsuccessful) excuse to come to the MCC to play chess, where he was caught by his parents and immediately suffered the consequences!!! And that was a couple of years ago!

Elie Beranja and David Baumont must (and deserve to) be especially proud for Cedric! And there is more to come, after all it is only a matter of a couple of days more!

CAGLES!!!

Do I detect a hint of Victorian bias there?

Also while Miranda is doing very well according to her rating, her =3rd position is artificial because the standings include her one-point bye for the second-last round, but do not yet include the scores for other players for that round. Most likely after the second-last round is completed she will be somewhere around =6th.

Numbers of open winners are

Victoria - 4
NSW - 3
Queensland - 2
SA - 2
ACT - 1

Looking at the last 3 years, NSW and Victoria always has 3 winners while ACT had 4 in 2007, 3 in 2008 and only 1 in 2009. What is going on with Canberra? :doh:

Another point to note is that NSW has 3 out of 6 winners in the under 12 divisions, the more important ones from the point of potential. That result is especially striking given that quite a number of strong under 12s from NSW decided to play in Manly rather than in Adelaide.

Partly just not a lot of ACT players competed. Emma Guo would almost certainly have won some title if she had played and possibly Megan Setiabudi. Junta Ikeda who won last year would still have been eligible I think.

Of course other states also had players who played in Manly or not at all, Anton for instance; not sure which of those other Manly players are still juniors.

Ian, the reason why I am more keen on comparing the under 12s is because in the older divisions the top players do not play. All the players from ACT you have mentioned above are from the older divisions. All other states face exactly the same problem.

Just hypothetically, if all the strongest juniors from all the states played, then in my opinion only Emma would be more or less certain to get a title.

Denis,

The statement of poilcy is not true and who ever said it to you is incorrect. It is not backed up if you know the programs we are running. Development squad has been expanded in 2008 for the higher rated juniors and an advanced coaching group has been started for higher rated players so they have somewhere to go after the junior school programs. We recognise that we cant cater for players of the calibre of Junta, Yi and Andrew Brown but we can cater for those that want to get there.

There were only ten players who went to adelaide and the main issues parents expressed to me for not going were the length of the tournament, the logistics to get to adelaide, and perceived issues with getting accommodation close to the venue. Many parents were simply not willing to go to adelaide for that duration and stay a distance from the venue. This is particularly true as the last two years were in Canberra and Sydney - much easier to get to.

It is true that we are encouraging ongoing participation as a number of the ACT high performing juniors from the last 10 years no longer play and we believe part of our job is to keep them playing through life. When I talk to those that no longer play they say it is because they are retired - when a 12 year old tells you they are retired that is a sad day for Australian Chess.

I would challenge whoever said we are not supporting elite players to get involved and help if they see that it could be done better. First committee meeting is in February. Always seeking more volunteers.

I said what I said on good authority and I believe that the same has already been said direct to you.

In any case, it takes little observation to see that the current crop of young ACT juniors is comparatively very weak though that may just be a coincidence. :hmm:

I am surprised to read that you can't cater for players like Junta, Yi and Andrew. I know that they need high quality coaches but Australia has them so why can't you provide them? It has been done before in the ACTJCL. If you don't do that you'll never get your players to the top at national level. (Just for the record, I attended almost every ACTJCL committee meeting as an observer during the years I was ACTCA President so the ACT junior scene and the practices adopted then were well known to me. I am still not exactly out of touch with the junior scene :) )

I am surprised to read that you can't cater for players like Junta, Yi and Andrew. I know that they need high quality coaches but Australia has them so why can't you provide them? It has been done before in the ACTJCL. If you don't do that you'll never get your players to the top at national level. (Just for the record, I attended every ACTJCL committee meeting as an observer during the years I was ACTCA President so the ACT junior scene and the practices adopted then were well known to me. I am still not exactly out of touch with the junior scene :) )

Denis,

No those comments have not been directed to me. You clearly have strong opinions on this from a long time ago. We provide the financial and Australian Juniors coaching assistance we can to Yi, Junta, and Andrew. I note the implication in your point that your sources believe that we are responsible for the comparatively weak juniors. I am not going to debate this with you any more. Your comments about the Doeberl, ACT chess, and the ACTJCL are increasingly destructive.

It is quite simple, you can choose to be involved and suggest improvements or not. Up to you. As I said first committee meeting is February see you there if you wish to help.

I read with both interest and disbelief at the sort of discussion that goes on in Australia's "Premier" Chess Forum. I wonder if my kids would like to grow up and look upon Australia's chess players and chess chat contributors as role model? There seems to be this great divide among the different state chess association which is really sad. I wonder if kids wants to retire at 12 because they don't want to "grow up" to be like one of us? Differing opinion is fine provided that we are not elevating our chess club/ state by putting down others. Hopefully, if we can work together without killing one another "verbally", there maybe- just maybe some hope for Australia's chess future. Having said that, I just want to thank the tournament organizer and volunteers for putting together a fine event. Well Done Guys & Gals!

There was no implication in my post that others had said that you were responsible for the present position - that is a conclusion you draw. My post was made on my own observations of the current standards of young ACT juniors.

As for your asking me to help out, I appreciate your invitation (that I could take as an admission that you need it :D ) but I have already given many more years of my time to ACT chess, both senior and junior and in running the Doeberl Cup, than you have, or are likely to (say 25 years), and it's about time that ACT chess looked to people under 70 to help out. (By the way what is "a long time ago" in your terms - 5 years?:) and to which opinions do you refer?)

My time is now spent in assisting the ACF and the AusJCL, the latter a body in which you have shown minimal interest just as you failed even to acknowledge my request to nominate an ACT member of the ACF Junior Chess Subcommittee before that body was overtaken by the AusJCL.

If my comments seem destructive so be it but they are fact. Perhaps you would be better off relying on better associates in the chess world than you do now. That would at least be a start on the road to improvement.

You are one of the prime examples in this thread of state based parochialism.

1)That doesn't stop me of being fair!
2) That doesn't stop me of admitting to be wrong when I am wrong
3) Many times I have shown respect and admiration for other States achievements (including yours)
4) Finally, you would have been proud if you were a member of a Club such as Box Hill / Canterbury Juniors Chess Clubb that produced two great champions, wouldn't you?

The lack of specifics in yewsze's post makes it difficult to tell exactly what he's complaining about or even whether it is something on this thread. It helps if people who want to make a point about state association politics link it to some specific examples if they can.

As for the parochialism thing on this thread, cheering on your state and club is fine (though posts that just say "go [state/club x]" and nothing else can be a little bit tedious). Posters should keep acheivements in context and remember that although these are prestigious events, many of the best players are often not competing in them for whatever reason.

I should clarify here that the highlighted points were the main reasons for my applauding the post! In fact looking at it more thoroughly I do not really understand the usage of inverted commas around the word Premier!

I didn't, honestly, know the one could use the highlighing tool within quotations. That doesn't mean I would have used it in the first place anyway! The reason why I was actually touched by the post was that having a look at the proster's profile, I realised how important it is to congratulate people like yewsze for their contribution to Chess development.

I was surprised that I got 6/11 even though I felt I was playing horribly.... if I was in best form(september october november), maybe I might of done better... I had a drawn game against Zac, and made a careless mistake right at the end. I had a material advantage and played inaccurately against Sam Grigg, and I missed a win against a 1200 right at the end. The only game that I thought I played well was my draw against Fedja.

Hi Thomas
You and the other Box Hill and Canterbury Juniors Chess Club (as well as all the Victorian) boys and girls did well and you deserve to be congratulated for your overall performances!:clap: :clap: :clap:
Now, since I know you are a top student at school as well, could you please correct that horrible "I might of done better" with the correct "I might have done better"?

Sorry! A little typo! Maybe, I should HAVE proof read my post before you had to correct me XD Anyway, when is the official Aus Juniors website going to be updated? For example, not all of the games are in the all games pgn file. Also, where are bulletins 8 to 11!! I want to download the hilarious picture of myself looking extremely angry at the photographer in Bulletin 10!

All your games are there, just need to know where to look! In the Download Files column, look in All Games (http://www.sajuniorchess.org/AustJunior2009/Games/AUSJCh2009.pgn) (for your convenience, I've linked the file). All 11 rounds are in that file. You might have to wait a long time for the bulletins though. :D

Hi Mischa,
It is good to see Cedric doing particularly well, as Sally and the other boys and girls from Victoria and other States.
However, I think you (as well as I did in the beginning) have associated Cedric with MCC, maybe because he is playing there as well.
However, Cedric has been a member of the Box Hill and Canterbury Juniors Chess Club for quite some time (2005 maybe?) and he frequently plays there as well.
So as I noted in my (corrected) congratulatory post in this thread apart from himself and his family, BH as well as CJ Chess Club deserve some credit for his development as a Chess player as well.
It goes without saying that as I noted in both my original and corrected notes, MCC should be feeling very happy with his prowess!
By the way, I wish a quck recovery for India, please convey my regards and best wishes to her!
