    Calling all punters! With $2700 in prizes still up for grabs, the MCC Open is a big chance to catch up on your absent rivals in the 2013 MCC Grand Prix! The under 1800 section has opened up with no entry from current leader Jason Chew or 4th place holder Anthony Hain. In the under 1500 section, Dan Dobos' absence means a number of players can jump up the leader-board and into the prize money. With Gary Bekker & Jason Chew currently in line for the open division, the standings are even closer than they seem (players can only win one prize). For a look at the Grand Prix standings, check out this page, and remember you can still enter the MCC open up until round 3! Contact arbiter Kerry Stead on 0412-862-630 or kerry.stead@bigpond.com.

    #revengeofthecaro

    The MCC Facebook page was positively ablaze last night as (no doubt) festivities continued at the Dale household following the Caro Kann's victorious return to the MCC tournament hall. Suitably excited, IM Ari Dale has annotated his brother's win over Candidate Master Jack Puccini after a 39th move error ended a strategic battle between the two young players.

    You can view the game, if you dare, HERE.


    Secondly, we had a question about the Grand Prix which I'll answer here:

    Q:"can I still win an under 1500 prize even though my rating is over 1500 now? Do you just look at the initial rating? Also what are the prizes for each group? Thanks"

    A: Of course you can! You rating is taken at the beginning of the year, so if you started in the u/1500 group, regardless of what your rating is now you're still eligible to win the u/1500 group. You can view the latest Grand Prix standings (and prizes) on this page of our website (standings are updated at the end of every tournament)
