    MCC Grand Prix

    MCC
    GRAND PRIX


    In 2011, our 5 Monday evening FIDE rated tournaments will form a grand prix, whereby a player’s scores from all 5 events will add up to form a grand prix score at the end of the year. The tournaments included are:

    MCC Club Championship (Feb 7th – Apr 11th)
    City Of Melbourne Open (May 2nd – Jul 4th)
    Edwin Malitis Memorial (Jul 18th – Aug 29th)
    MCC Open (Sep 12th – Nov 14th)
    Bob Brooking Round Robins (Nov 21st – Dec 19th)

    Every point a player scores in any of these events, equals a grand prix point, for example if a player scores 5.5 points in the club championship and 4 points in the City of Melbourne, they will have accumulated 9.5 points over the two events. At the end of the year, the players with the highest number of points will win the grand prix prizes.

    1st, $250
    2nd, $150
    3rd, $100

    1st under 1800, $250
    2nd under 1800, $150
    3rd under 1800, $100

    1st under 1500, $250
    2nd under 1500, $150
    3rd under 1500, $100

    Best junior, $50

    The rating used all year for grand prix purposes will be the players ACF rating on February 7th (the first day of the Club Championship). Players can only win one prize.

    For any questions, please call Grant Szuveges 0401-925-075.

    Grant, the idea of having a GP is great.

    But where will the money come from? Has some sponsor been found..or will %age of the tournaments' entry fees go towards the GP. If yes - what %age will it be?

    No, there is no sponsor. A small set fee from each entry will go into the grand prix pool. Prizes in the specific tournaments will not be affected though, because entry fees are going up a little next year (this covers the grand prix). Its only a small price rise though.

    Not long to go before the first MCC Grand Prix event begins! This event is the MCC Championship (see relevant thread). So far 18 players entries have been confirmed and all will gain grand prix points for every point they score in the tournament! Get in to MCC tournaments early in the year so that your grand prix points start adding up!

    I have received a detailed hard copy of a report regarding the Club's achievements throughout the year, as well as the announcement of MCC's AGM and the Calendar of events for 2011 including the Grand Prix ones.
    I have not yet had time to go through it thorougly, but I am amazed with the clarity and number of issues presented to the members.
    Great work!
    BTW dear Mr Prez I have some money for the Treasurer. Will you guys be at the Club on Wed, 26th, final day of the MCC Australia Day Weekender? I am playing in the event but I don't want to withdraw money earlier than the above date, because the term deposit ends on the 25th, hehe no way Jose, they 're not getting not even a cent from yours trully! (the Bank that is)!

    Grant, I have registered these five tournaments on FIDE's site for their respective rating periods (details can be changed later if necessary), but I feel I should give you fair warning on the Bob Brooking Round Robins... It seems like from the MCC Calendar that you're planning to have a whole bunch of 6-player round robins. The FIDE fees in that case would be at least 50 euros for each of these RRs (although I would try to make sure you would only get charged the ACF admin fee once) so if you have 40-odd players it would add up.

    Greg

    P.S. At the moment I have only registered one Bob Brooking Round Robin.

    Better that we discuss this over the phone - I will call you during the week.

    The second MCC GP event (The MCC Open) is now complete and we have a new leader with IM James Morris convincingly demolishing the field to take a half point lead in the grand prix! Mirko Rujevic's consistency has allowed him to keep snapping at Morris' heals half a point behind, while Domagoj Dragicevic is only half a point behind him with 13.5 points! Its all very very close at the top! Karl Zelesco maintains a 1.5 point buffer in the under 1800 section whilst Gary Bekker is a whole 2 points clear in the under 1500 section!
    Be ready for the third event in the series - the Edwin Malitis Memorial!

    Stead takes the lead!

    Kerry Stead has hit the lead in the MCC Grand Prix after scoring 5/7 in the recent Malitis Memorial. John Dowling has jumped into second with a score of 4.5 points too. By winning the event with 6 points, Jesse Jager has moved into contention with 12 points in 7th place. While Stead and Dowling are in the first two spots currently, IMs Morris and Rujevic are breathing down their necks with only 2 points separating the top 4 players. With 2 events to go, the big guns will need to play in the next one to try to claim back their lead! Ari Dale is leading the under 1800 on 14 points with Richard Voon still in there with 13.5 points, whilst Gary Bekker is a mile in front in the under 1500 with 12 points. Its all getting pretty exciting now. The next GP event is the City Of Melbourne Open, so register your names asap and start racking up the grand prix points too!

    3 leaders!

    There are 3 co-leaders in the MCC grand prix going into the final event for the year! Kerry Stead, Domagoj Dragicevic and IM Mirko Rujevic are all sharing the lead, with John Dowling and IM James Morris only half a point behind! Rujevic still has a game in hand, but is over in Croatia representing Australia and thus will not gain any more points in the Bob Brooking Round Robins! Morris, Dragicevic, Stead and Dowling are all equal favourites now to my mind! The under 1800 looks like a race between Ari Dale and Richard Voon. The under 1500 looks like Gary Bekker has a buffer on the field, but him and Anthony Hain are not playing in the Brooking - meaning that Roger McCart will have to score 3 points from his 5 games to win the under 1500 outright! Its going to be a very exciting finish!

    Updates during the Brooking Round Robins!

    Here is how things stand after Round 1 of the Bob Brooking Round Robins:

    OPEN SECTION:

    22.0 Domagoj DRAGICEVIC (4 games left)
    21.5 James MORRIS (IM) (4 games left)
    21.0 Kerry STEAD (4 games left)
    21.0 Mirko RUJEVIC (IM) (1 games left)

    Nobody else can catch these players. One will miss out on a prize - but 3 will take out the top three prizes.

    UNDER 1800:

    19.0 Ari DALE (4 games left)
    18.5 Richard VOON
    18.0 Rad CHMIEL (4 games left)
    16.5 Jim PAPADINIS (4 games left)
    16.0 Paul KOVACEVIC (4 games left)
    14.5 Richard McCART (4 games left)

    This group is the most interesting. Ari Dale is playing in the top section of the Brooking against Morris and crew and will thus find it harder to score the points required to keep his lead. But it is even worse for Richard Voon who is not playing at all and will drop out of the prizes if his rivals score enough points to overtake him! He will have to hope that Wyss and Beckman (who are both out of the running) can keep taking the points off Chmiel, Papadinis, Kovacevic and Richard McCart! The final result in this group could be almost anything!

    UNDER 1500:

    16.5 Gary BEKKER
    14.0 Roger McCART
    14.0 Anthony HAIN
    9.5 Ben FRAYLE

    This group is virtually wrapped up already! Gary Bekker has taken out first place with an entire tournament to spare!!! Roger McCart and Anthony Hain will both share at least third with only Ben Frayle able to improve his standing. Ben needs to win his round robin with 5/5 to take outright second, 4.5 points will get him a share of second whilst 4 points will leave him short of a grand prix prize.

    More news next week after round 2 of the Brooking Round Robins!
