    Great Open Day

    And it was a great success in all of the above activities! Looking forward to see the coverage in the website, the blog and the facebook. See you al in the Round One of the Club's championship next Saturday!

    Well done Michael!




    It's usually Zach Loh who collects the trophies! Earlier in the afternoon it was his dad Michael's turn to be awarded a distinction by Noble Park Chess Club's President FM Dusan Stojic. Michael was the manager of one of the NPCC's three successful teams in the recent Victoria Interclub competition! Well deserved Michael!

    This afternoon the club hosted its Open Day with range of activities such as simul, bonus blitz tournament, presentation from the last tournament with free food provided as well. It was encouraging to see some new faces for the first time in the club. The simul was provided by Justin Tan, who believes he played up to 20 games. Whilst he won most of his games, he did draw to Bill Yuan and lost against Kevin Cron. Lots of young kids from the club's junior coaching program were very keen to play against Justin so we hope that they enjoyed the experience. Afterwards, Justin and Bill were late entrants to the club's bonus blitz tournament, an invention by the club this year where after the event is finished, players get bonus points based on their rating. So players with rating greater than 2000 get 0 points, players rated between 1700-2000 gets 1 bonus point, players rated between 1400-1700 receive 2 bonus points, players rated between 1100-1400 receive 3 bonus points whilst any players below 1100 receive 4 bonus points. In this 11 round event, the tournament was won by Laurence Matheson with 9.5/11 and no-one was able to catch him even with bonus points.


    Code:
    Here are the final standings.
    
      1   Matheson, Laurence  VIC       2189 9.5      50.5  62.0   59.5

    Congrats to the club for what sounds like it was agreat day and also to Justin Tan for a successful simul and following it up by entering the blitz half-way through with success.
