For this year’s tournament we have returned to the format and Entry fees of 2001 Unfortunately we cannot bring back the winner Michael Gluzman but we would dearly like to see those who played in 01 and are still interested in chess and the club. You can see the 2001 standings via the following link

there was a big field partly due to 3 Lindbergs playing

The Bourmistrovs were also there in full line up!
I am absolutely amazed by the easily 100+ number of participants.
I propose that at some stage we can hold a BHCC ex and present Champions reunion party at the Club.
Missing you all at the Club, can't wait till the Autumn Cup! (I have already entered)! :)

Hi Captain
Any chance to have the 2009 Calendar, or some parts of it published? Due to terrible pressure of work, business and social obligations, I have to organise things as early as possible.
I believe this situation is faced by other members of the Club as well!
can we also have the Autumn Cup's page (entries etc) on the Club's Website? I believe it attracts players to participate when they see other players have already entered!

Can we also organise some welcoming function for our juniors who did so well in the Aus Juniors Champ in Adelaide?

That's very good news and thanks TB.
What about the idea for a re-union party of ex BHCC Champions?
Also, what about an improptue welcome - congratulations function for our juniors? I am sure parents would love to participate in organising this!
By the way, I heard from a very reliable source that an anonymous person impressed by BHCJ CC juniors performance at the recent Championships, wishes to donate $100.00 to the Club to be used toward junior related expenses.
Can you please confirm that?

This is indeed the case. The club captain decided that the donation should go towards providing free entries to the Autumn Cup for all BHCC and CJCC juniors who did so well in the Australian Junior, the Australian Open and the Queenstown Classic.
We hope to see big participation

You were equal 1st Under 1400 with Jerry Xu on 4/7, so combine 1st $150 & 2nd $100 =$250 and you both get $125 as your prize money. Well played JAK

Dear Captain
I, hereby, notify you that my NSW campaign was a success and mission has been accomplished!
Box Hill / CJ Chess Club and CV were successfuly represented deep in Bill's territory!
On Club basis we made new friends and since the Norths provide similar services to their members as we do, I propose a motion to declare the two Clubs sister organisations!
They very much family oriented and they make sure visitors are provided with every possible support!
On Association level, they are also doing a great job and one has to congratulate NSWCA for their successful running of affairs.
On a personal basis I shared first place in the Patzer division having beaten three players much higher rated than myself.
Now I am ready to begin the year in our Club successfuly continuing my glorious series of noteworty performances ie getting mercilessly beaten by our juniors!

As from il cavaliere inesistente to the other knight let us keep calm. The identity of the mystery player will have to be revealed when the draw is made. Until then you won't know who your opponent is anyway. However judging by ratings you will not meet him in round 1. Who is DM

With 2 days to go the entries are creeping up to 50 including the mystery player. He [revealing gender] needs a bye in the 1st round.
The entry of David Hacche will increase the competion in the top group.
The entry of Peter Wallmueller and Enoch Fan will increase competion amongs the micro brigade. There is room for many more

What a night at Box Hill / Canterbury Juniors Chess Club last night!

Here are some highlights.

70+ players of all ages and strength lined up for the Club's Championship

Thunderous applause by all during announcements such as:

The appearance of multiple Aus and Vic championships winner Doug Hamilton!

The calling out of Box Hill / Canterbury J Chess Club juniors who excelled in recent Aus and Inernational events! Congratulations Sally, Eugene, Thomas, Zach, Liam and Manoj. They were all shy while their names were called in contrast to their parents proud smiles!!!

Then Trevor Stanning jumped on a chair demanding and achieving absolute silence to announce what he called a unique opportunity for all chess players!

The chance to be given coaching by 10 of the very best coaches in Australia!
This initiative of the Melbourne Chess Club, in a form of a RAFFLE was explained by the Club's VP Carl Gorka who a participant in the event.

Fludey will soon come out with some great news!!! Soon, very soon! In a private discussion he gave me some details with the precondition that I 'd keep my mouth shut! Well, when David Flude demands absolute silence, absolute silence will be! Pssssss :whistle: is about a great sponsorship deal!!! ok some more? :whistle: international sponsor ok :hand: NO MORE!

Fludey also detailed to me how he plans to beat Eugene Schon in their next duel over the board. Careful Eugene, it involves a funny Queen move! At the same time David produces his plan in order to conquer Ballarat this year!!! Another Eureka stockade? Maybe, but sorry no more details!

Then an improptue blitz interview with Trevor Stanning, After 60, 60 and 60 in the last three years, this year the Club's Championship attracted 70+ players! The reasons please?

First, drop of entry fee!

Second, good publicity... Sharing the work with Gerry they called every old and new member on the phone. "Come and Play"!!! Well we did!

Third and last but not least, the creation of the mystery of who was the anonymous player whose name was kept secret until very late before the beginning of the tournament. Douglas Hamilton of course. Approachable, kind and always popular the Champion obliged and was greeted by all with respect and enthusiasm!

Oh my God, not another junior! (that's me cursing my luck when I saw the draw! ) Ok I said to myself, I am White, all the juniors know i always open with 1. e4 so hehe 1. d4 hoping for ... d5 to get Enoch into some crazy Blackmar Diemer, no! ... Nf6 hmm 2. c4 ... e6 comes the answer, he knows the Nimzoindian 3. Nf3 ... b6, I swear to God he doesn't look older than 7 and he knows the QID!!! Now I am in trouble, I know nothing about this opening so I pray to God and continue with 4. a3, No divine interference. I lose a piece! My knight disappears from the board (ala il cavalliere nonesistente) and I go ask Gerry if he found a spare Knight somewhere, no he says, go back to your board and play Chess! I win in 78 moves after I bore the youngster to sleeping pointin a Knight and Pawns vs two Knights and Pawn ending! Shame on me, I know but that is Chess!

I go to Zach's board he has lost his Queen, "silly mistake" his dad tells me, but he has a Rook and Bishop fortress against his oponent who is short of time, "Draw"? proposes Zach and extends his hand! His opponent won't have a bar of it, he makes a move and falls into Zach's trap losing his Queen! The rest is academic for the talented micro junior!

Chris Wallis is into his final VCE year! I give him all my tips of how to approach the heavy schedule. Polite as usual he thanks me and goes to his board. He is a top student! Sally tells me that Derek will not play much Chess this year! He is also doing the final VCE year! They are growing up fast and so is Nicholas who seems to be five inches taller everytime i see him. He must be already about 6 ft tall!

We 're not having the electronic boards working tonight, explains Gerry, we want them to work perfectly! So you people have to wait till next round! Shaun is working frantically on the networking field. He is doing a good job!

I am closing with a sad note. Before the round begins Jeljko and I remember Jusuf Omerajic, one of he most likable and popular guys in our Chess Community. He 'd come and greet us with a smile and a lolly! Always there always content! He kicked a bloody, stupid, murderous mine, during his last ever holiday in his beloved Bosnja! Bloody, stupid, murderous War!!!

See you all next week!

Play for R1 was about to begin at the BHCC Championship, when the Club's Captain made an announcement that raised some, if not all eyebrows:

"From next Round, (Round 2) of the Championship there will be no water bottles allowed on the playing tables" said Gerry Hartland. "Some members have complained, so we return to the olf fashioned way, by using a glass to drink water or other drinks"!
I looked at my oponent, he looked at me, we both looked at our water bottles, then at Gerry! "I didn't complain said Enoch". "neither did I" I said. Then we reassured eachother: "He said by next round, didn't he?"
Press the clocks start please! Another day at the office had began!

Schon-Saw as much discussed in the shoutbox last night. These are very provisional and incomplete notes as I think it is very hard to say objectively (at least at my level) what is the value of white's attack before the queenswap. But after the swap he appears to have full compensation and then black makes defensive errors.

1.c4 e5 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2 h6 I don't know anything about this move (which is a bit embarrassing since I play this sort of nonsense with white!) I assume it's one of these modern you-show-me-your-plan-first kinda lines. 4.Nc3 Bb4 5.e4 Bxc3 6.bxc3 0-0 7.Ne2 d6 8.d4 c5 9.d5 Here it looks like white is a bit shaky. A big fixed blocked-up centre with bad pawns for black to attack. 9...Nbd7 10.h3 Qa5 11.f4 Qa6 12.Qd3 Nb6 13.f5 Qxc4 White couldn't really save this pawn, but ignores it and continues with a kingside attack 14.Qf3 Bd7 15.g4 Bb5 16.Ng3 Qd3 This seems so natural! If the opponent is pawnstorming, swap queens so their attack will count for less. But it turns out that white's attack continues anyway, so should black be trying more radical measures?

What an analysis!!! I am sure, Eugene, who was all smiles after his win last night (the happiest I 've ever seen him since he is usually shy :P) would be very happy to go through it!

What an analysis!!!

Thanks but it's not that good; it's only a work in progress and I feel like I've only got half the story in the above, unlike many other games I annotate where I feel I have pretty much nailed them. It's one of those games where using the computer to assist is only of limited value because it just can't smell all the coffee - it sees the tactics but it doesn't really know what the attack is worth (and nor do I).

As Saragossa noted in the shoutbox last night, white's play is amazingly direct and singleminded. At some early point he gets the idea kingside attack and decides that come hell or high water that's what he's doing, and black can just do what black likes.

Yeah, however, what really impressed me and these things stay in mind like forever, was the exchange of Queens reduces thw Pawn Storm fury thingy. I very much value advice like that! Bill Jordan has a wealth of strategems, both theoretical and practical, like that also!
I was also impressed by the way Eugene continued his attack with pieces after the exchange of Queens!

Indeed, though this game is more about violating that sort of principle than upholding it! Exchanging opposing attacking pieces generally weakens the opposing attack, but if the attack is still strong anyway and your advantage modest, you might be better off keeping those pieces on so you can do some attacking of your own!

It took black three moves to set up the queenswap. White used those three moves to continue his attack with g4, h4 and Ng3, so that the attack would be closer to crashing through after the queens went off the board.

David first of all congratulations on your win! :clap: :clap:
It was a fine example of your attacking style of chess!
By all means please publish game and annotations, I am sure I will learn a lot from you!
BTW I was not expecting d4, so my play against it was to avoid the Blackmar Diemer complications only to realise than I had fallen for it anyway:)
Good luck for the rest of the tournament!

I did a similar thing against Dmitri Partsi once in a rapid - he played the BDG so I avoided it by transposing into the French; he went into the Winklemann-Reimer which I did not know at all, and I failed to smell a rat and thus accepted it, and got smashed in 20-25 moves.

Accepting the WRG is close to suicide. It is like the Blackmar-Diemer gambit on steroids. The white attack is incredibly easy to play. However declinig the gambit tends to give white some hassles. I do not wish to comment further as I have one in correspondence.

Yes, and so has Eugene!
( 2 Chow, Samuel 2328 [4] 0:1 Schön, Eugene 1931 [4]) Marcus actually is leading the field by half a point after the penultimate round! No last round draw has been published yet, but I expect it to be a real thriller!

Looking at the results, I am sure Nicholas Liu won yesterday. Unless either of them put down the result incorrectly?

Well done to Geoffrey Saw and Eugene Schon for winning the tournament!
