Thanx Garrett.

I note that they persist with this horrible 9am start on Monday, despite one of the most one-sided ChessChat polls showing overwhelming preference for nightowlishness among players.

The Peninsula Open is actually one of the more successful tournaments, with them getting 50 entries each year.

Interesting to note that the Redcliffe tournaments are supported, probably because its run by a club and will be supported by its members, giving it a 15-20 member head start.

The problem tournaments in Brisbane are being run by the CAQ or individuals.

ps - By clubs, I mean ones that meet weekly (ie not QWCL)

Would love to. Can't for usual reasons.

Very fond memories of Redcliffe, being my first non-home club tournament - as well as the fact that Stoksie and Co always put on a good show.

One day though, I shall do an Arnie.

Three Loganites that I know of are playing: Oleg Korenevsky, David Cigelj and our new guy from South Africa, Ryan Stevens.

Yes great work thanks Amir.

It is really great that live games are transmitting on the internet !

Alex Stankhe is playing well and got to 4/4 with a promising position in round 5 against Mr Lovejoy.

Axel Stankhe is also playing well.

Shayne Hunter beat the top seed (Ben Lazarus) in round two.

Amir had an interesting game against our Sth African friend in round 3.

Yi Lui had a won game against Gene Nakauchi but forgot the Lucena position in rook endings and lost on time in round 2 !!!!

Mrs Sullivan and Brenda and Patti Stokes are running one hell of a canteen :clap:

:clap:

public thanks to Mark and Patti Stokes, Jim Rogers, and Tanya Simmonds for giving lifts to people without cars/licenses.

Cheers
Garrett.

Hi to all,

We have both been able to get lifts from the city to Rothwell back and forth each day which has made it a lot easier and more enjoyable.

But yes, to Rothwell public transport is almost non-existant on the weekends for 10am starts. If the tournament was held on the peninsula, instead of at Rothwell, it would be not that difficult to get there by train/bus.

Thanks Garvin,
Saves me time to set up the rounds at home for live games.
There is a small problem with Wireless connections at Redcliffe.

What an interesting tournament. Interesting results. Interesting field.

I dropped in on Saturday and witnessed Yi's unfortunate choke against Gene. As Garrett has already reported, Yi forgot the Lucena position. Unfortunately he also managed to do so with 5 minutes on his clock compared with his FM opponent's 30 seconds - and then duly turned his winning advantage into a loss on time.
