    Current Entries - Chris Wallis tops field

    We'll still be accepting entries up to the start of round 1 and even afterwards if players wish to be a late entrant or need a round 1 bye.

    FM Chris Wallis has confirmed his entry and must fancy himself a good shot to take out his first MCC Club Championship as the current top seed!

    Play heats up in round 3

    Some very competitive chess was played in round 3 as the first encounters between the favourites were played and many games went well into the night before being decided.

    On board 1, James Morris invested a lot of time and 2 pawns to get a position where he had some compensation. At one point, James was down to his last 5 minutes while Mirko had around 30 minutes. However, Mirko was unable to contain James' initiative and it was he who lost on time.

    Board 2 saw the Australian Junior Champion David Cannon play the white side of a Tarrasch French against strong FM Karl Zelesco. David got good compensation for a pawn sacrifice, getting the 2 bishops and lumbering Karl with an inferior pawn structure in a relatively open position. David then relentlessly pursued his attack, recovering his pawn and eventually winning a piece before converting his position to a win.

    Board 3 saw another extended game as Chris Wallis and Thai Ly debated a Nimzo-Indian position. The players got to around move 20 with barely any time left on their clocks and a complicated position on the board. Chris however had a slight edge and he was able to navigate the ensuing complication to win the game in a knight ending.

    On board 5 Marcus Raine continued his great start with a win against Colin Savige. Marcus played a Four Knights English Opening and looked to have a strong position before losing control. The position evaluation went to Colin's favour and then Marcus's before Colin blundered a rook and resigned immediately.

    The only real upset of the round was James Watson's loss to under rated junior Aman Deepak Thadani. Aman got a great position as white in the Benko Gambit and despite sacrificing his queen for somewhat nebulous compensation, was able to convert the position to a win.
