    Oh and, not sure if I'm playing.. I might or might not be in town, so it's still up in the air, I'll let you know closer to the time. Sean is keen to play though.

    yeah i know, my first major decision
    moving the normal start time of 10am approx to 12pm. Venue availability being one of the reasons.

    Congrats Garvin, looked like a success. Will there be a forthcoming report?

    Yes there will be a report. Maybe even now

    22 players entered, which was one up on last year. A very good effort considering that there was only 2 weeks notice for the event. Seven players above 1600 made it a very competitive tournament for the players on the top boards. I would have liked a couple more players from the over 1700 brigade, but that wasnt to be.

    Something I did notice however, no one from the gold coast from what I could tell. During the two days, this was also commented to me from some of the players.

    The venue was perfect for 22 players and well worth securing in the future. It would handle probably a maximum of 40 players, which is good for most of our 'smaller' tournaments. Central location, air conditioning, generally quiet area, clean playing venue. We will be playing there again in the future I suspect.

    We also had two juniors from Hungary who will be here until July with their parents. They were a pleasure to have in the tournament and I am sure we will see them again.

    Round 1- Play began at 12:15pm after all the usual general announcements. Only one real upset of sorts out of eleven games by Luthien Russell (11 years old). Not the first upset Luthien would perform in this tournament

    Round 2- A good win to Shane Hunter against a 1600 player. Evan Pass is not having a good tournament, losing to two players under 1200 in a row A draw on board one between Ben Lazarus and Craig Stewart, which then put Ben back level with the other players.

    Round 3- Nothing overly special for this round to report

    Round 4- Started at 7:30pm and four players took half point byes. Felt like we had been there all day and was running behind time, but we did start at 12pm and so the day is not really longer than a normal 4 round tournament.

    Round 5- Started on time and three players took half point byes. Three draws on the top three boards including two shortish draws with plenty of play left in them.

    Round 6- An unauthorised withdrawal by Avram Buciu to which I was only told of by a relative as I was about to print the pairings.

    A very good win by Ben Lazarus on board one which gave him a half point lead on the field, with a game against a 1200 player in round seven just for good measure. Oleg Korensevski (1286) continues to cause carnage for the top seeds and will be on board one for round seven.

    Round 7- Ben Lazarus makes short work of Oleg on board one to win the tournament outright with 6/7. Then the scoreboard watching begins on boards 2 and 3. Mark Stokes kept wanting to know and looking at the leader board to work out if he only needed a draw to claim outright second. Mark got the draw he needed and Tamas lost, so Mark took second place.

    During the final stages of round seven, one player came up to me and said the final round pairings was unfair as he had recieved a player 300 points above him. I looked at the pairings and they were correct. I pointed this out but he was having none of it. Still carrying on how he was unfairly treated. I then asked him who did he play in round six. He didnt want to answer that question and he said that he had also recieved a 300 point higher rated player in a previous rounds. When I checked later, his round six opponent was an unrated player. No wonder he didnt want to reveal that piece of information, wouldnt have helped his argument
    Cant please everyone I guess.

    Prize lists:

    1st. Ben Lazarus $200
    2nd. Mark Stokes $150

    Rating Group A: Oleg Korenevski $50
    Rating Group B: Luthien Russell $50

    I suspect that the handicapper will be catching up with Oleg in a couple of days .

    A very enjoyable tournament for almost everyone. The next tournament is the CAQ lightning tournament next saturday starting at 4:30pm after the CAQ AGM.
