    Victorian INTERCLUB _ Eastern zone_2004

    The Victorian INTERCLUB _ Eastern zone_2004
    started on Friday 23/July with 8 teams in A grade as the premier attraction. Clubs that are represented in A are Melbourne, Bosnia, Dark Horse, Box Hill and New Life. This composition means that A Grade will be a round-robin.

    Before B Grade got underway there was mild excitement as the entry for one team had gone astray. The new draw will involve 7 teams and will necessitate a bye each round. Box Hill, New Life, Dark Horse are the involved Clubs.

    C Grade is always where the rubber hits the road between the oldies on the way down vs the up-and-comers. This time six teams, variously from Dark Horse, and Box Hill, will vie for supremacy.

    D Grade also has 6 teams from Whitehorse and Box Hill. Tomorrow's champions can often be seen in this grade at no cost to spectators.

    Arbiter is Gary Wastell, and the venue is Box Hill at 7.45 pm for the foreseeable.

    A little disappointing this year that Dandenong and Mentone (where are you THUNK) did not enter teams.

    "We were slaughtered", said Bobby 1972.

    Round 2 of the VICTORIAN Winter Interclub competition saw Melbourne Chess Club’s A Grade team sitting opposite the Dark Horse Tigerstyle team. (Dark Horse is a new Club in Melbourne and is a Geoff Saw initiative).
    On board 1 for MCC is bobby1972, one of Nature’s gentlemen. On board 1 for DHT is Christopher Wallis. Bill, you remember Christopher Wallis; he was the one I posted about when I asked for you to rate the recent VIC OPEN.

    Bill you should have adjusted his rating then because his win last night is now going to cost Ascaro many, many rating points; and you know how Ascaro enjoys his rating points.

    But wait, there is more. Ruperto Lugo surgically outplayed the MCC board 2, and Zhigen Wilson Lin ground down the MCC board 3 (MCC names not included to conform with privacy obligations). It was left to firegoat7, on board 4, to uphold the honour of MCC.

    As Ascaro was walking out the front door he responded to a query with the now famous words ""We were slaughtered". But the MCC will back and will be competitive. It is not often that you play against 4 under-age juniors and come up short.


    Leaders after 2 rounds in all grades are
    A: Dark Horse Tigerstyle 6.5/8
    B: L’s Angels 5.5/8
    C: Setup Crew 6/8
    D: Eastern Influence 4.5/8

    Any word on the results in A-Grade, starter? DH Tigerstyle didn't do at all well on Friday - have they blown their lead?

    I suppose few people outside it care much about C Grade, but the last two rounds are looking interesting.

    The = 2nd teams are playing each other this week, with Up and Comers going on to play the (current) #1 team in the final round the following Friday. Placings are still very much up in the air.

    The results aren't actually up for last Friday's games, but assuming Whittick-Rozenblat was 1-0 (it seemed to be heading that way when I left), the standings should be:

    Set-Up Crew: 8.5/12
    Solid Rocks: 7/12
    Up and Comers: 7/12

    Can anyone tell me if there'll be a final played in C Grade?

    Actually Recherché, C grade does hold interest for many so I am happy to address your questions.
    It is a bit intriguing though to see some poster who succeeds in getting a thingo above that second e in your handle, not able to do some detective work and work out whether there is a FINAL or not. BTW, you are not connected to Thunk are you.....he specialises in e-defects?

    Have a look at
    http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2004/e0407fwi/event.htm
    and it lists 7 rounds.
    Now flick to
    http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2004/calendar.htm
    and see round 8 on 10/9 (with an ALLEGRO on the same night).
    Leave you to put 2 and 2 together.
    It may be of importance to you to ask Gazza if there is a Western C Grade competition. If yes, then there will probably be a further C grade final...Easts v Wests.

    I knew there were finals; I suspected C-Grade may have been an exception due to the relatively small number of teams competing. I'm glad to hear this isn't the case.

    Acute accents on és are sometimes a little easier to obtain than current tournament information on websites. Although actually I think the Interclub has been very well looked after on the website this year.

    I'm neither connected to nor familiar with "Thunk". But here's a few more, just for kicks: grave accent, è; circumflex, ê; diaeresis, ë.

    (at http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2004...wi/results.htm)

    that Zag would be well advised to lurk at all boards if the Brunswick St crew are to avoid the wooden spoon.
    Is it time to test all of Gazza's rules about subs, in order to get out of this apparent trough?

    Some curious facts.

    A-GRADE teams ranked by average rating of all members to have played at least one game:
    1. BH President’s Men (1980)
    2. BH Upwardly Mobile (1976)
    3. BH Eastern Euros (1968)
    4. Bosnia 1 (1956)
    5. BH New Life 1 (1901)
    6. Melbourne 1 (1851)
    7. DH FisH (1752)
    8. DH Tigerstyle (1668)

    A-GRADE teams ranked by scores after Round Four:
    1. DH Tigerstyle (11.5/16)
    2. BH Upwardly Mobile (9.5/16)
    3. BH President’s Men (9/16)
    4. Bosnia 1 (9/16)
    5. DH FisH (8/16)
    6. BH New Life 1 (7/16)
    7. BH Eastern Euros (5.5/16)
    8. Melbourne 1 (4.5/16)

    Leading individual scores in A-GRADE:
    4/4 Zhigen LIN (1644!!) [A3 – DH Tigerstyle - age 11]
    3.5/4 Chris WALLIS (1642!!) [A1 – DH Tigerstyle - age 13], Dusan STOJIC (1947!!) [A2 – BH New Life 1 - age 15], Rukman VIJAYAKUMAR (1643!!) [A3 – DH FisH - age 13]

    Correction

    There was actually another player on 3.5/4 in A-GRADE, namely Bosnia 1's Board 4 Jusuf Pekmezovic (1948). I was able to work this out since the crosstable has been updated to include Round 4: http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2004...crosstable.htm.

    Bill

    I hope you have noted jeffrei's post. The lowest average rating team in A grade is leading all other teams and ripping rating points away from our visitors.
    Now, if you had re-rated after the VIC OPEN, as we asked, then these under-rated juniors would have had their rating adjusted then.
    It is not good enough for you to have super-Glicko2-with-the-lot if you are not going to run it and remove the lag-effect from infrequent re-rates.
