    Shouvojit won his postponed game against Adam (a rather funny game in which Adam had a queen for a large number of pieces and at times appeared to have chances.)

    Round nine results:

    Five players have tied for third on 5/9; this will become six if Ian wins his postponed game next week.

    Bonham - Shepherd. An overambitious move caused me grief for half a dozen moves but then Chris's clock got the better of him.

    This is my 7th picket fence in a classic rated event ever and my first since the 2005 HICC One Hour. I also had one in 1999 (Sandy Bay One Hour) and four in a row in 2002 (HICC Champs, Tas Champs, HICC One Hour, Launceston Weekender).

    Any tie-break for the third?

    We don't even do tiebreaks for first!

    That said, using the tiebreaks that we use here when there is actually any reason to use them (eg when splitting up some of the minor prizemoney in weekenders) you will be the top of the list of those tied for third, whatever the result of Ian's game.

    I'll post the standings with countbacks shown after the final game.

    Very good.

    Did Chris really have to give a piece for nothing, instead of 28... Bb3, which at least tries to hold it, and might get a P or two for it? 29.e5 could be met by the exchange-for-pawn sac ... Rxd5. Bc4 is normally combined only with 0-0-0 not 0-0 when playing White against the Dragon, and Re1 doesn't go well with the normal f4 push (after Nb3 first, to stop ... Qb6 tricks). So I doubt that Black had a good position in the Dragon Reversed.
    So let me see if I have this straight:
    • People are born male but can change to female.
    • People are born white but can change to black.
    • People are born homosexual but can never change.

    Makes perfect sense I guess

    He didn't have to give the piece for nothing but by this stage was very short of time. If 28...Bb3 I intended 29.Bf1 and the bishop will be dominated anyway. Black's best then is 29...c5 30.Bxb5 cxd4 and now white can win the bishop for pawns with Rb1 or just win pawns with Rxd4 (black can then extricate the bishop in a line beginning with ...a6 but loses another pawn in the process); in any case white won't have much trouble winning.

    Even on the move before 27...Bb5 digs the bishop out without immediate material loss but white's pawns are coming in the centre.

    Dear Kevin, For the line with 23...Ba4 24.Nxa4 Qxa4 25.Qxa4 Nxa4 26.Rc2. Then I concern about 26....Rc6 Could Chris win one of d or c pawn? Just concern about that but not sure and in this case what is your next move preparation?
    Many thanks

    (It's meant to say "white is better" at the end but the game viewer keeps removing the r!)

    Its always interesting analysing the game afterwards. I dont think I would have seen 21Qe6 as by this stage I was obsessed with lining all my artillery up on the D file. However, having built my version of Alekhines gun I do regret 23 ..exd4 which is clearly no good whereas just maintaining the tension in the centre with 23 ..Ba6 is a move I might have found. That is if Id been thinking more clearly!

    Our plan is that we will now have 1-night tournaments and/or other 1-night special events for the next five weeks and then start the Spring Swiss which will be 7 rounds (time control TBD, but presumably a quicker classic control).

    There is some doubt about whether we will be open next week (Monday 11) - watch this space. If we are open it is likely there will be an unrated allegro.

    On Monday 18 I will be playing a simul against the junior club and am happy to keep going against any adults who want to grab a board as they arrive! This opportunity for lots of people to beat me is a special celebration for my 100% score in the Champs. Probably also a blitz tournament on the same night (unrated).

    The next few weeks after that we will probably have the Bullet Champs and a couple of possibly rated allegros.

    Club is open tonight but for this week only (at this stage) we will not be in our normal room. There will be a sign or there will be someone directing people as they arrive regarding where we will be.

    Chess tonight is in Providence House. Go past our normal entrance and the library and up the path. Through the doors and on the right at the back of the open space.

    I was very lucky to win this one - in the key game I played the opening badly and eventually Jerome flagged by a fraction of a second in a position where I was two pawns down but I had some play, mainly against a backwards pawn. I had no other hope of anything better than a draw.

    Another strong result by Josh though he did get a big freebie from Ian in their game.

    The most comical game was Les vs Chris in the first round where Les played a strong game and Chris had to suffer through a very bad rook ending two pawns down. Chris finally managed to get it to KR vs KR after a mistake and offered a draw, only to have Les refuse as Chris was very short of time. Chris reminded Les that there was an increment but Les played on ... and lost the rook.

    The decisive game was decided by me blundering a piece by castling thereby unprotecting it.

    I got +10=0-0 in the junior club simul although some of the strongest juniors were away. A few were equal up to about move 20 or so; I don't think I was in trouble in any games.
