    First Open Day of 2013

    To kick things of for 2013, Noble Park CC hosted an Open Day last Saturday 2 February. The format was the same as last year, with the "Bonus Blitz" running alongside the simul (this time given by Yours Truly).

    I played 5 players in the simul, with several games against each player, and scored 12.5/13. Ethan Abarca (new member for 2013) held me to a draw (fittingly in the last game to finish), thus winning 50% off his entry into the 2013 Noble Park CC Championship.

    In the Bonus Blitz, Milorad Mijatovic had the highest score before the bonus with 8.5/9. However, he received no bonus points (over 2000) and was overtaken by Rebecca Strickland, whose score of 5/9 was boosted to 9, (+4, U/1100 category). So Rebecca also won 50% off entry into the Championship. Congratulations to Ethan and Rebecca!

    Final standings (9 rounds) before bonus:

    Code:
    1      Milojevic, Miodrag          2100       8.5     (+0)

    Match with Mentone Chess Club & Newsletter

    We'd like to report on some interclub action that happened last Thursday - a team of four (Abdulwahab Rashid, Milic Sucevic, Prince Itty Panicker, and Eduardo Toro) represented Noble Park in this away match at Mentone's regular Thursday session. The match was played at the 60 + 10 time control, with the following results:

    1. Beet,C 1834 v Rashid,A 1943!! 1-0
    2. Sucevic,M 1452!! v Leontyev, L 1764! 0-1
    3. Mustafa,M 1407! v Itty Panicker,P 1585? 1-0
    4. Toro,E 1366!! v Jans,P unr. 1-0

    so a win for Mentone 3-1.

    The previous match in 2017 had been tied 2-2; although I was unable to attend I was told this year's match was very close as well.

    In other news, we will be publishing the club's newsletter next Saturday 5th of May (we'll put it online and have a few print copies at the club); this has been made possible by Janaki Narenthran, who volunteered to do much of the editorial work, and by several contributors (Dom Dragicevic, Nick Ilic, George Loucas, Calvin Augustine, and myself). We will aim to publish the newsletter every four months or so - if you have an idea for an article or report please let us know and you could make it into the August issue.

    The September Allegro was held today as a round robin since we had only 5 entrants. The background drone of racing cars from the neighbouring suburb (Sandown Park racecourse) made one wonder if our members went there instead this week...

    All entry fees were returned as prizes, with the results:

    1st - Kevin Bao, 3.5/5 ($20)
    2nd - Metin Mustafa, 3/5 ($10)
    3rd - Prabhat Mehta, 2/5 ($5)
    4th - Jackie Li, 1/5
    5th - Ryley Dang, 0.5/5

    The club will be closed both for junior coaching and at 3 pm next week, and will reopen the following week for the first round of the Spring Cup, on Grand Final day. If you need a bye for round 1 of the Spring Cup let us know early and often.

    Noble Park vs Mentone Friendly 2019

    The annual friendly match between Noble Park and Mentone Chess Clubs was played on three boards at Paddy O'Donoghue Centre this afternoon, Saturday the 27th of April, at a time control of 60 + 10.

    Noble Park won the draw for colours, playing White on boards 1 and 3, but Leon won quickly with accurate play on board 2, establishing a one-point lead for Mentone which proved insurmountable; although Kathleen's win got the home club onto the scoreboard at least!

    Results:

    Mentone - Noble, 2 - 1

    1. Cameron Beet - Ethan Hooi, 1-0
    2. Leon Leontyev - Douglas Dias, 1-0
    3. Metin Mustafa - Kathleen Hooi, 0-1

    Next week, May 4th, will be the Knights Cup (open to all ages!) and the following week, on May 11th, the Teams Open (http://www.chesschat.org/showthread....ark-Teams-Open for details) will start.
