and here the newsletter about Round 2, and the pairings for Round 3



Dandenong Summer Swiss 2009

The second round saw 12 players added to the event. A number of players
returned from holidays and there are also six new members which was
pleasing.
Some players simply couldn't play round one due to the extreme heat the
previous Wednesday, hopefully the president Chris Potter will remember to
talk to the centre management so we can figure out which buttons to press
to use the airconditioning.

The games all went according to rating except for Rhys Hopkins repeating
last years club championship result in again beating Abdulwahab Rashid. I
think would be the first time Abdulwahab has started a tournament at
Dandenong with two losses. The lucky recipient of this is Alan Gray who
next week gets to play an opponent nearly twice his rating.

Hi everyone,

Here is the next email circular about this event from Garry Lycett

Dandenong Summer Swiss 2009

Another two players brought the total to 40 which is a great turnout for
the first tournament of the year. Even more pleasing is that 8 of them are
brand new to the club.

Top seeds Milenko Lojanica and Don Machell continued on their merry way
with wins against Manny Chua and Reginald Chong, although both were very
hard fought with Milenko especially fortunate to eke out a win in a king
and pawn ending. Reginald showed that his rating of 1381 will increase soon
and that his first round win over Abdulwahab Rashid was no fluke, although
in the end Don proved just too strong.

These two were joined on 3 / 3 by Philip Drew who defeated Richard Voon
with a spectacular rook sacrifice to force mate that nobody saw coming.
Philip had played very well and seemed to be in good position for most of
the game, except for one move where he left his queen on prise to a
straightforward two-move combination. Philip realised what he had done, but
Richard returned to the board and without thinking played an obvious move,
whereupon Philip, with great relief, removed the threat and went on to
victory. I am sure that just 10 seconds thought by Richard and he would
have seen it.

A very good result was Frank Hewitt's draw against Zdravko Lojanica,
despite a 600-point rating gap. And it was Zdravko who was lucky to
scramble a draw from a clearly lost position.

Following are the results for Rd2 and the pairings for Rd3.

Hi everyone,

Here is the next email circular about this event from Garry Lycett:

Dandenong Summer Swiss 2009

Another 5 players joined the tournament to make 45 in total, including 13
new players to the club.
Even better is that 6 of them are juniors, meaning the annual most improved
junior trophy can be given to someone other than Daniel Potter or Rhys
Hopkins.

Last night the two top seeds, Milenko Lojanica and Don Machell, moved to
4/4 and as the only players on that score they will meet next week. Milenko
overcame Philip Drew's Sicilian Dragon after an oversight by Philip allowed
Milenko to smash through on the kingside. Don had a harder fight against
Miralem Campara but his constant pressure finally succeeded in a
breakthrough.

These two are followed by Rhys Hopkins whose win over Ramo Burzic took him
to 3.5-points.

There are also rating prizes in the U1600, U1400 and Unrated categories.
The U1600 is being led by Mendel Armerman, Philip Drew, Reginald Chong and
Manny Chua, all on 3-points.
The U1400 is being led by John Seehusen and Peter Keefe, both on 2-points.
The Unrated is being led by Elvis Espejo on 2-points.

Following are the results for Rd4 and the pairings for Rd5

I am terribly slow on posting these newsletters at times, so apologize to the members of Dandenong that rely on me posting this newsletter to find out their pairing

Dandenong Summer Swiss 2009

Going into round 6 it looked as though there was no stopping Don Machell
from progressing to a tournament win.
His sixth round opponent, Manny Chua, didn't stop him, but he managed to
slow him down with a draw.
This keeps Don, who leads with 5.5 / 6, within striking distance of at
least three players, Milenko Lojanica 5-points, Philip Drew and Manny Chua
4.5-points.

Next week it is Philip's turn to try and knock off the leader. Hopefully if
he reaches the same position he did last night against Mendel Armerman he
will get more than 1/2-point from it. With well positioned knights
dominating Mendel's locked in bishops it looked only a matter of patience
and slowly strengthening his position for Philip to get the win. But Philip
chose to allow a mass exchange of pieces, Mendel took full advantage to
equalise and the game finished in a draw. Equal leader in his rating group
but facing Don next week, that extra 1/2-point could have been valuable to
Philip.

The board two game between Milenko Lojanica & Rhys Hopkins was interesting,
not long after the round began I noticed they had already reached a double
rook and pawns ending. How they ripped though the opening and middlegame so
quickly was beyond me, I imagine it was theory they were both familiar
with. Shortly after that Rhys lost a pawn and although he fought hard he
eventually went down to the tournament's top seed.

Next week Milenko faces Abdulwahab Rashid who started the event poorly but
has won the last 4-rounds to bring himself back into contention. If he
defeats Milenko it would likely produce an interesting last round as he
would be a dangerous opponent for whoever was leading.

*****
Unfortunately Mirko Kudric was unable to play last night as he is in
hospital. I am sure all members of the club wish Mirko a speedy recovery
and hope he is back next week.
*****

The leaders of the rating groups are;
U1600 - Philip Drew & Manny Chua 4.5-points, Ahmet Yilmaz & Mendel
Armerman 4-points
U1400 - Frank Hewitt, Reginald Chong & Peter Keefe 3-points, Peter Pispek
2.5-points
Unrated - Elvis Espejo 3-points, Hessari Habib & Joe Alphonso 2.5-points

Hi everyone,

Here is the next email circular about this event, which has it's final round this Wednesday

Dandenong Summer Swiss 2009

Don Machell only managed to draw with Philip Drew but it was enough to keep
the outright lead as Milenko Lojanica and Manny Chua could also manage only
1/2-points in their own games.
Don moved to 6 / 7 and retains a slender 1/2-point advantage over Milenko,
further back on 5-points are Manny Chua, Philip Drew and Mendel Armerman
who are all having very good tournaments.

Next week Milenko must rely on his brother Zdravko to at least draw with
Don next week, while he himself will be trying to get a victory and a share
of first.

General Meeting.
All members are urged to attend.

Dandenong Summer Swiss 2009

Leading Milenko Lojanica by only 1/2-point going into the final round Don
Machell took only 1-hour to wrap up the tournament victory when his
opponent, Zdravko Lojanica, failed to arrive. This of course cost
Zdravko's brother, Milenko, any chance of catching Don.
It was a disappointing way for Don to win, but certainly not his fault, and
Don had led throughout and fully deserved the victory, especially after
defeating top seed Milenko in their individual encounter.
Congratulations to Don who finished with 7 / 8 (6 wins and 2 draws)

Milenko finished outright 2nd on 6.5-points after defeating Mendel
Armerman, 3rd place went to Miralem Campara with 6-points after he disposed
of Manny Chua.
Equal 4th with 5.5-points was Richard Voon and Abdulwahab Rashid after they
overcame Rhys Hopkins and Philip Drew respectively.

With Mendel, Manny and Philip all losing it allowed Mirko Kudric to catch
them on 5-points and they shared the U1600 rating prize.
All four had very good tournaments, Mirko scoring 5 / 7 after missing one
round by being in hospital.

The U1400 rating prize was won outright by Peter Pispek who finished the
event well to get 4.5-points. He finished just ahead of Reginald Chong and
Geoff Lee, both on 4-points. Reginald looked as though he might have won
last nights game when a piece up against Chris Potter although it was a
tough ending, made tougher when Chris won Reginald's rook and the game
finished in a draw. Meanwhile Geoff had his best tournament for quite a
while and capped it off with a very well played win against Peter Keefe.

The Unrated prize was a close tussle between Elvis Espejo and Hessari Habib
but in the end, Hessari defeated Ismet Gungordu in the last round to also get to 4.5-points
and take the prize. Elvis was only 1/2-point behind. It was an extremely impressive
performance by Hessari who started the tournament in Rd4 and ended up scoring 4.5 / 5
