    Uni of QLD Club Champs

    So I shared the Club championshp with my flatmate and good friend Sean Karita (after we both smashed [Alex], the arrogant one (1752) hehehe

    Report by Nik Moore:

    Nine people participated in the final tournament, so one person per round (Ed,
    Brendan, Dan and Robert) each received 1 point for a bye. At long last, there
    was an upset! Seeded seventh, I defeated third seed Brendan in round 1 thanks to
    my united advanced passed pawns.

    Sean and Dion proved unstoppable, beating everyone else they played. Sean beat
    Dion head-to-head for yet another tournament victory. Stuart and Dion both
    finished on 3 points, Dion winning a five-minute playoff to take second prize.

    There was one draw last night, between Dan and Ed in the final round. In another
    unlikely twist, Brendan picked up the wooden spoon, as he lost all three games
    he played.

    So, what does all this mean for the final results for this year?

    Code:
    Player		First		Second		Third		Pts
    Dion Sampson		1		6		2		24
    Sean Karita		4		1		1		24
    Brendan G	             2		3		1		20
    Alex *******		2		-		-		10
    Stuart		1		-		4		9
    Stephen C	        1		-		1		6
    Jon Humphrey		1		-		-		5
    Pablo		-		1		1		4
    Ben		-		1		-		3
    Nathan	Anderson	-		-		1		1
    Nik Moore		-		-		1
    It’s a tie! Dion and Sean share the $20 cheque – once QUGS gets a new
    cheque-book. Sean has had an outstanding year, winning every tournament game
    played, except for two losses (to Dion and Brendan) and two draws (with Pablo
    and Garvin). Dion has placed in 9 out of the 12 tournaments. Brendan, the
    youngest entrant, also has an excellent record. Some of the others on the list
    may have ended up close to the frontrunners, if they had played in more
    tournaments.

    Of the “group 2” players (people who aren’t in this list, plus me), James has
    been the most consistent. He has beaten all the other “group 2” players every
    time, except for one or two draws. He enjoyed several near-upsets, including a
    draw against Stuart earlier in the year. I also came close to an upset a few
    times, before finally managing one. This should be an encouragement for other
    group 2 players. Next year, there may be a prize for the “best group 2 player”.


    P.S. BTW, we have been playing the 'River Rapid' (Me, Alex, Nathan Anderson and Sean) which we may submit for rating if we can front the finances for

    Qld Uni Championships

    Nobody smashed [Alex]. In the tournament referred to Alex had had too much to drink, and was playing accordingly. But when sober he is nearly invincible, just ask the Australian Juniors Champ Dennis. During the UQ Championships Alex attended 4 times winning first place in 2 out of those 4 visits - not too shabby - Go Alex!

    First time I have seen someone refer to themselves in third person.

    Cool Sherlock Holmes

    Your Sherlock Holmes pipe must have something other than tabacco in it. I am just a friend of Alex, but last time I checked not actually him. Recent rapid ratings came out on the CAQ website. You can check out rapid ratings there. Hope I've been helpful.

    He didn't claim to be anyone specific, only Alex's friend, which is fine. Garvin are you sure he is Alex? Have you been reading his private messages?
