    Dandenong Chess Club Championships 2005

    Hi everyone,

    The details of the rapid I really should have posted in a separate thread but as it is we have arriived at the near to start of the next event in Dandenong, so I will post the last round results of the rapid and the email circular it is contained in here as there are also the details of the upcoming Dandenong Chess Club Championships within it.

    The Dandenong Chess Club website can be found at: www.dandychess.org.au
    with all the details of the club, 2005 tournaments and current tournament
    results and pairings.

    Dandenong Club Championship 2005

    A reminder to all players that the Dandenong Club Championship 2005
    commences in two weeks;
    9 - Round Swiss

    free night)
    Time Control: All moves in 90-minutes with 30-seconds per move from move 1.

    This years tournament will have probably the strongest field yet for
    Dandenong's Club Championship.
    Richard Voon will be attempting to defend the title he has won in the last
    two years but will be challenged
    by up to 10-players rated between 1900 and 2100 looking to claim the
    honours.

    Dandenong Rapidplay Tournament 2005

    The Dandenong Rapidplay tournament concluded Wed 21st September with rounds
    6 - 9 being played.
    Congratulations to Tahir Lushaj who started the night 0.5 - point ahead of
    two players but finished with a very convincing 1.5 - point margin over
    second place.

    In the seventh round Tahir disposed of one challenger when he beat Zdravko
    Lojanica with a clever exchange sacrifice that gave him a passed pawn he
    was able to push down the board. On board two Garry Lycett managed for the
    first time to defeat Mehmedalija Dizdarevic, and with Frank Silas and
    Milenko Lojanica drawing on board three it left Lushaj 0.5 - point ahead of
    Lycett, who was a further 1 - point ahead of third place.

    In the eighth round Lushaj only needed to defeat Lycett to wrap up the
    tournament with a round to spare. Three weeks earlier these two players met
    in the last round of the 'A' - Grade event, where a win by either player
    would give them first place. The main difference between the two games was
    that this was rapidplay, the result was the same but it just happened
    sooner. Lushaj outplayed Lycett with unfortunately too much ease to go to
    7.5 / 8 and lead by 1.5 - points over three players heading into the final
    round.

    Tahir could have taken it easy in the last round but showed no desire to
    relax when he broke through the defence of Frank Silas to record yet
    another victory. Garry Lycett recovered to beat Zdravko Lojanica in an
    interesting endgame, Lycett's Queen and Knight forcing victory against
    Lojanica's Queen and two connected passed pawns, this gave Lycett outright
    second place. On board three Milenko Lojanica drew with Abdulwahab Rashid,
    after winning his first three games Milenko seemed in a very peacable mood,
    drawing 5 of his last 6 games, this cost him any chance of victory. Matthew
    Potter joined a group of six players in equal 4th place with a very good
    win over Mehmedalija Dizdarevic whilst Sadedin Redzepagic capped off a good
    tournament with a win over Ramo Burzic to finish with 3 / 3 for the night
    and jump into outright third place.

    With a score of 8.5 / 9 Tahir fully deserved his victory in the tournament.
    With the pre-tournament favorites finishing further down the field than
    normal, second and third places were suprising. But Lycett lost only one
    game, to the eventual winner and Sadedin was the only player to play Tahir
    without losing, getting a draw in the fourth round.

    Following are the final standings for the event.

    Hi everyone again.

    I think that the final standings are wrong, as I am fairly sure that Tahir drew with Pranas in the last round but when I find out more, I will inform you all.

    In any case it would have been equal third.

    Oh and last years club championship at Dandenong had the following field, and results.

    Dandenong Rapid Play - Corrected results

    Dandenong Rapidplay Tournament 2005

    A correction to the results of the Dandenong Rapidplay Tournament.

    The result of the final round game between Tahir Lushaj and Pranas Silas had
    been recorded as a win for Tahir, was actually a draw. In an overwhelmingly
    won position Tahir, with the tournament victory secure, kindly accepted
    Pranas' draw offer. This enabled Pranas to finish equal third on 6.5 -
    points.

    Following are the corrected final standings for the event and a crosstable.

    I was able to update it with the usual chesschat editor without too many problems. It appears to have hard carriage returns in the text which, once removed, stopped wrapping. Perhaps if you PM me with the process you go through to produce and upload the crosstable I could help. But maybe it is one of those things I would need to be watchnig over your shoulder at the time to really work out what was going on. However, more than happy to try to assist.

    Round 1 Results and Round 2 pairings

    Hello everyone,
    once again I will be copying and pasting the email bulletin from Gary Lycett here on the board.

    Dandenong Club Championship 2005

    52 players entered the 9-round Dandenong Club Championship with another
    being added for round 2.
    Richard Voon will be defending the title he has won for the last two years
    but it wont be easy for the sixth seed.
    As the first round of a swiss involves the top half of the draw playing the
    bottom half the results are generally predictable.
    Probably the biggest surprise in the first round was no lower rated player
    managed to win. Normally there is at least a couple of upsets.
    Five lower rated players did manage to hold their opponents to a draw. It
    was no surprise that two of them were young Potter's, one day their ratings
    will catch up with their ability. Graham McEachern and Gerard Barta also
    did well to hold much higher rated players to a draw, whilst newcomer
    Sujendra Premaka was obviously stronger than the provisional rating given
    to him to do the pairings as he made Frank Silas struggle. In the end Frank
    was probably lucky to scrape a draw in what looked to be a winning endgame
    for Sujendra.

    Although all other games went with the ratings there were some good fights
    put up, most notably Craig Baxter who was finally ground down by TG Pramod
    in a long game finishing after midnight. Craig had fought back from what
    looked to be a hopeless position, but whenever he reached a stage where it
    looked as though he would win he would overlook the best move and let TG
    back in it. Eventually these slight miscalculations took their toll and
    TG's passed pawns came through.
    Geoff Lee and Mirko Kudric also put up good resistance before finally going
    down against Ramo Burzic and Mehmedalija Dizdarevic respectively.

    This year the Reserves Championship, (top scoring player in the bottom half
    of the draw), is for players rated less than 1500.

    Following are the results of round 1 and the pairings for round 2.

    Round 2 results and Round 3 Pairings

    Hello Everyone,

    here is the next bulletin,

    Dandenong Club Championship 2005

    Round 2 saw the 21 equal leaders whittled down to just 10 players now on 2
    / 2.
    But it wasn't as easy for the top seeds as the ratings may have suggested.
    Matthew Potter and Mendel Armerman put up strong resistance before both
    eventually lost to Milenko Lojanica and Malcolm Pyke. Winner of the last
    two club championships, Richard Voon, made a strange blunder against Don
    Maciulaitis. After Don, who is blind, told Richard his move Bh6, Richard
    wrote the correct move but played Ba6 on the board. A few moves later Don
    won a rook playing Bxc1 and Richard realised his mistake. Richard was able
    to win nevertheless to keep up his hopes of a "threepeat". Meanwhile Tahir
    Lushaj looked lost against Henk Scherrenberg, a piece down and with Henk's
    queen and bishop threatening his king it looked as though all Tahir could
    do was get a perpetual with his queen against Henk's king. Henk may have
    been overconfident as a few moves later, trying to avoid perpetual, he lost
    his extra piece and the game.
    Meanwhile a few lower rated players managed to cause some upsets, Nick
    Vitkovic played very well to easily account for Garry Lycett and Geoff Lee
    managed to regain some form to defeat Syf Pronk.

    Following are the results for Rd 2 and the provisional pairings for Rd 3.

    No aloha

    Hello, Altecman,

    I thought that you knew that only the Autumn open has cash prizes; every other event at Dandenong only gives out trophies.

    I think one of the earlier posts mentions something about a reserve champion, I think that is the only other category other than 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

    ah here it is:

    This year the Reserves Championship, (top scoring player in the bottom half
    of the draw), is for players rated less than 1500. - Gary Lycett
    Any way take care and God Bless, and see you tomorrow, Macavity

    Round 3 results and Round 4 pairings

    Hello, Everyone.

    Here is the next bulletin from Gary Lycett.


    Dandenong Club Championship 2005

    The third round finished with five players remaining on 3 / 3, they are
    already a full point ahead as oddly enough nobody is on 2.5
    Richard Voon's hopes of defending his title took a setback with his loss to
    Milenko Lojanica. Milenko was joined at the top by Malcolm Pyke,
    Mehmedalija Dizdarevic and Zdravko Lojanica who each overcame strong
    opposition. The fifth member of the leading group was a surprise with the
    more fancied Don Machell going down to TG Pramod. TG has been playing well
    since recently joining the club, with an equal first in the "B" Grade
    tournament, but this was still an unexpected victory.

    Although it is still early in the tournament the top two boards in round
    four look to be very important games in determining the eventual winner.

    In other games Chris Potter did very well to hold Abdulwahab Rashid to a
    draw, while Peter Pispek could be returning to some form as he managed to
    hold Matthew Potter to a draw also. Geoff Lee made Henk Scherrenberg work
    long and hard for his point and Graham McEachern grabbed some more rating
    points, this time from Syf Pronk who looks a bit rusty after a couple of
    months off.

    Following are the results for Rd 3 and the provisional pairings for Rd 4.

    Hello everyone,

    I found the above comment a bit odd about the difficulty. Let us see the important positions.

    PGN Viewer
     

    After move 27...Bd4??, I must win the exchange. After the following exchanges we reach the position after Black's 35...Bd5 ( 35...exf5?? is forbidden because after 36.Rd6, and Rxb6 the white pawns will be unstoppable); is this really such a difficult position to be won? Agreed, I actually made a a meal of it; both 48.Rd1, and 49.Rd1 were much clearer ways to progress, but was there something significant that Black missed? I did feel during the game that 50...Ke6 or 50...Kd6 would have been a pest, but felt that they could be overcoma via triangulating against g6, and via the plan of the game of infiltrating on the c-file after Kb2.

    Would be interested ( and appreciative) if anyone can point out what I have missed?

    Take care and God Bless, Macavity

    PS perhaps the comment was about the time taken to play the game?? I was the last finished for the evening...

    Results Round 4 and pairings round 5

    Hello, everyone,

    Here is the next email report,

    Dandenong Club Championship 2005

    The fourth round resulted in only one of the leading five players going to
    4 / 4. Zdravko Lojanica was able to capitalise on some mistakes from
    Malcolm Pyke to put himself in outright first place. But with five rounds
    to go and ten players within a point of him Zdravko still faces a tough
    fight to become club champion. On board one Milenko Lojanica and
    Mehmedalija Dizdarevic drew and are both 1/2-point behind Zdravko. The
    other leader going into the round was TG Pramod who looked to be joining
    Zdravko on 4 when he was two exchanges and two pawns up against Richard
    Voon. Another loss by Richard would certainly end his chances of a third
    straight championship and so he kept resisting, first getting back one
    exhange and eventually achieving a position where TG was forced to go for a
    perpetual check rather than lose. So TG is also on 3.1/2-points with no
    less than seven players on 3-points.

    Leading the Reserves Championship is one of the new Sudanese players,
    Andrew Atem who defeated Sam Biondo in this round to be on 3. Henk
    Scherrenberg could have joined him, but Henk found trying to mate with a
    bishop and knight beyond him. In his game against Kuol Deng 70 moves passed
    before the start of the 50-move limit for Henk to find a mate. Spectators
    thought they were in for a long battle but Henk only reeled off about
    fifteen moves before stalemating Kuol.

    Next week the tournament passes the halfway stage, and if the usual draw
    between the brothers Lojanica eventuates then wins by the players on
    3-points would keep them very much in the running and should setup an
    exciting last four rounds.

    Speaking of brothers playing drawn games, round four saw Michael and
    Matthew Potter play each other. In an exciting game with many twists and
    turns a draw was eventually agreed in a position where some spectators
    thought Matthew was winning. Their opinion was based on Matthew's better
    positioned knight, although others thought Michael's position looked better
    due to a better pawn structure. You be the judge........

    White: Matthew Potter Black: Michael Potter

    SHAME SHAME SHAME

    The Potter brothers should be embarrassed at agreeing to a 2 move draw,even IM's playing for a cash prize usually play at least 6 moves . They werent in a commanding position in the tournament and they still used this woeful tactic. Its these kind of antics that affect the credibility of tournament chess. Can anyone tell me if the ACF has a number of moves limit rule for tournaments,and if not why they dont.This kind of rubbish should be stamped out.

Agreed, I actually made a a meal of it; both 48.Rd1, and 49.Rd1 were much clearer ways to progress, but was there something significant that Black missed? I did feel during the game that 50...Ke6 or 50...Kd6 would have been a pest, but felt that they could be overcoma via triangulating against g6, and via the plan of the game of infiltrating on the c-file after Kb2.

    Would be interested ( and appreciative) if anyone can point out what I have missed?

    Take care and God Bless, Macavity

    PS perhaps the comment was about the time taken to play the game?? I was the last finished for the evening...
    I don't think you need to get to the position 35...Bd5. Instead of 32.Red1, what is wrong with 32.Qe2? White recentralises his queen, defends his c-pawn, and if Black grabs the a-pawn, then 33.Rd7 is very strong. Black may play 32..Rc7, but then white has 33.Qc2+ defending a4, and can then play 34.Red1 threatening Rd7. White appears an exchangeup for nothing. Just a thought
    I've never been so broke that I couldn't leave town

    I'm trying out a new blog site...
