    Forensic challenge #4

    We are constructing a mini-history of the VIC OPEN, to add to the tourney flyer. If you can assist with answering the following questions then.....then....then....we would be grateful.


    4.1 Was Darryl a GM in 91 or an IM.

    4.2 Has Chapman got a title.

    4.3 Were championship winners counted as champions in cases of multiple ties.

    4.4 Were the computers declared the open champion in the year that they won [grazia Dio this computer fad has now gone]


    starter

    ps Bill's post #158 is the source we are working from.

    4.1 An IM.

    4.2 He is an IM (source FIDE site) - I recall he got it at the 2000 (or thereabouts) Zonal.

    Don't know the others.

    I believe in some years they possibly were but cannot be certain.

    1996 - The event report in Australian Chess Magazine (ACM) by the Guru says there were joint winners.

    1997 - The event report in ACM by Jamieson says Teichmann won the title on count back from Nutu-Gagic.

    1999, 2000 and 2002 - I can find no report in the ACF bulletins about it nor in Australian Chess Forum.

    I believe the title always went to the highest scoring human.

    There is probably something witty to be said here about some previous winner(s), anyone?

    Well here's another challenge.

    Last night I attended the NZCF AGM. Certainly a lot less noisy than NSWCA ones I've attended. The best action was a 30 minute exchange between the ex-prez and the incumbent. All in all a very gentlemanly affair.

    One item which caught my attention was over FIDE fees. The meeting noted that NZCF's FIDE fees for 2003 were met by a kind gentleman in Australia. Who was it?

    I didn't ask the kiwis cos they seemed deliberately secretive about it.
