Hello everyone,

My apologies to all players that the pairings have been changed in part owing to the inclusion of Mirko Rujevic, who made a mistake as to when the event started, and of course on my own behalf for posting the pairings straight away, being a bit blithe in this instance to the chances of the pairings needing to be changed.

In any case here are the new round 2 pairings



1 Mirko Rujevic 2232 [1] : Thomas Kalisch 1798 [1]
2 Jim Papadinis 1796 [1] : Carl Gorka 2121 [1]
3 Malcolm L Pyke 2105 [1] : Bosko Mijatovic 1790 [1]

6 Felix Wyss 1749 [1] : Richard McCart 1827 [.5]
7 Garry Lycett 1821 [.5] : Paul Kovacevic 1764 [.5]
8 Bryan Shanks 1575 [.5] : Roger McCart 1570 [.5]

What is it with all these postponements? It seems like a state past-time down there. Why isn't da peepz just turning up to da club and getting it orn? What is da matter wid eferybotty and der 'postponements?

Was you given too much lovin' by mummy and not enough smacks from daddy?

Whom did Mirko beat in round 1 to get to 1 point? :hmm:

He got a win on forfeit because Michael Baron did not show up. :D

Actually, the reason i was asking this, mid-week last week i was considering joining the tournament as well but as i did not want to have 0.5 bye and number of players was not even - i assumed that it was mission impossible :hmm:

Hi Michael,

The reason for Mirko being entered late is that he made a mistake as to when the first round was ie which Monday. It was eventually decided to let him play, and he was given a full point on the high balance of probabilities that he would have won in round 1.

If you had thought of playing, you should have contacted someone I guess,

Take care and God Bless, Macavity

PS will not see reply until much later, going out now

Interesting :hmm:
Agreed. I certainly should have contacted someone :doh: In fact, i could play Mirko in round 1 in this case and get the most important game out of my way early :) In any case, what is done can not be undone:doh:

As for "high balance of probablities" this is an interesting approach....When asking my question i did not realise it could be done.

this doesn't wash with me ...

he didn't read the info right and he should have paid the price

a half point bye as a round two late entry

As far as I know, if the pairing is possible for the first round (in the above case F. Gunnar received a bye), the high rated player would get a provisional 1 point for the pairing with catch-up game scheduled.

Igor, its true but in this case as far as i understood Malcolm's post (I may be wrong) the 1 point is not provisional and no catch up is scheduled.:hmm:

I am not familiar with Brian Shanks - is he a junior? Either way, great effort for a junior or for an oldie.

He's quite young...teenager I'm guessing, maybe mid to late teens.....I must be getting older:(

Hello everyone,

Here are the result of the games played tonight in this round, the board 11 game is to be played on Thursday, and I am unsure as to when the board 6 game is to be played. This round was also marred by some forfeits on the top boards, I am unaware as to why this happened but am sure I will hear in the fullness of time.

Yes it is.

A difference of two between the number of times you've had one colour and the number of times you've had another is permitted. The system attempts to avoid a difference of two, but it isn't always possible to do so, for instance if most of the scoregroup are due the same colour.

A difference of three is never allowed, except if it's the last round and the players being paired are on more than 50%. So any time your difference is two, you will get the other colour next round (if there is one!)

Hello everyone,

Here are the results of this event that finished tonight with Mirko Rujevic winning with 8.5/9. followed by Malcolm Pyke on 7.5/9, and equal third on 6/9, Pano Skiotis and Tom Kalisch, who had a good event, beating Carl Gorka and Domagoj Dragicevic

The rating A 1st prize was won by Bosko Mijatovic, who finished on 5.5/7,which was outright 5th, and he was the top player in that group, so no surprise, but the 2nd place in that group was taken out by Kozo Simutanyi (5/7), who was the second bottom seed in that group so a good effort.

The B-group was a three way tie between Alex Kaplan, Roger McCart and Jake Kostrzewa, who was leading this group into the last round, but lost a long game to Richard McCart, which probably should have been a draw, but I think Richard's extra time on the clock must have had an effect on the outcome. So Richard did his brother a favour, as both Roger and Alex won their last round games, to catch Jake on 4.5/9.


Here are the final round results



1 Mirko Rujevic 2232 [7.5] 1:0 Jim Papadinis 1796 [5]
2 Malcolm L Pyke 2105 [6.5] 1:0 Pano Skiotis 2068 [6]

5 Richard McCart 1827 [4] 1:0 Jake Kostrzewa 1399 [4.5]

Finally a reminder that next week there is no competition, but the following week, July 14th, the under 2000, and under 1600 start, both being 7 round swiss events, and there is a thread that I will bump up when I know of some entries.

Take care and God Bless, Macavity
