However Kyle maintained his 1 point lead because 2nd placed Tharan Balachander lost to Dino Cinco.
    So the standing are
    Kyle Leaver 6/7
    Edgar Mdinaradze, Eryk Paprzycki, Dino Cinco, Tharam Balachander 5/7
    William Wedding, Peter Sanders, Pavel Turcaj, Max Pritchard 4.5/7

    The draw for round 8 was not done tonight because it is not clear whether one player would be able to play next week or not. Hopefully that will be confirmed in the next 24 hours and the draw done and published on the website.
    However it seems quite likely that we will see the top two seeds, Kyle Leaver and William Wedding play in round 8


    On Thursday night we have the the September Blitz #1.
    When: 7:00pm, Thursday the 8th of September 2022
    Venue: The Chess Centre of South Australia,
    10 Ranelagh Street, Adelaide.
    Entry Fee: $15 Adults, Junior/Concession $10
    Format: 11 Rounds, Swiss System or Round Robin
    Time Control: Fischer Blitz – 3 Minutes + 2 Seconds per move
    Contact: tournaments@sachess.org.au

    We might have a visitor from the Philippines who is in Adelaide for a while and says his chess.com blitz rating is 2000-2100, so he probably will be one of the best players in the tournament.
    Good to see Peter Sanders (that I played back in the 1991/92 Austrlaian Reserves champioship) and afterwards 3 more times in the year 1992 still going strongly!

    I retired from classical chess many years ago but seeing names of my opponent from the ''previous lifetime'' among those who are still active makes me travel down the memory lane!

    Edgar Mdinaradze dominated tonights September Blitz despite there being a strong field for the 14 player round robin tournament. Edgar finished on an unbeaten 12.5/13, although he should have lost to me. I was a rook, bishop and several pawns up when I blundered into a back rank mate. Kyle Leaver was second and Aaron Perkins third.

    Round 8 of the City of Adelaide saw a very interesting game on board 1 between the two top seeds, tournament leader Kyle Leaver and 2nd seed Will Wedding. Kyle ended up winning and moved to 7/8 which was enough for him to clinch the tournament victory with a round to spare. This was because none of the players on 5/7 won to move to 6/8. Edgar Mdinaradze and Eryk Paprzycki drew on board 4, Dino Cinco lost to Peter Sanders on board 3 and Tharan Balachander drew with Max Pritchard on board 4.

    I played and beat young junior Ashmit Dileesh on bottom board.

    Tonights September Blitz #2 was a twelve player round robin tournament. We were very pleased to welcome new player Kathy Yin to the tournament. it is tough playing a blitz tournament as your first tournament when you are not familar with chess clocks and competition chess.

    Kyle Leaver won the tournament, with Edgar Mdinaradze finishing second. Unrated Fabian Khaw won the U1600/unrated prize.

    A reminder that the Pennant teams competition will be starting next Tuesday.

    When: 7:15 for 7:30pm start on consecutive Tuesdays, from 27th of September until the 6th of December.
    Venue: The Chess Centre of South Australia,
    10 Ranelagh Street, Adelaide.
    Entry Fee: $12 a night, $10 concession (Seniors, Students, Unemployed).
    This tournament is open to all players.
    Players are expected to play all rounds or be able to organize a replacement.
    Format: 11 round ACF-rated teams competition.
    4 players per team, Swiss Draw or Round Robin.
    Time Control: Fischer 60 Minutes + 30 Seconds a move
    Grade Restrictions A-Grade: None
    B-Grade: Under 1600 ACF
    C-Grade: Under 1000 ACF

    It now seems unlikely there will be a C-grade as there seems not to be enougn interest. All the under 1000 players seem to still want to play B-Grade. This makes more B-grade teams and no C-grade

    If you want to be in a team please contact Aaron Perkins, SACA Grade Match Secretaty (and many other roles) via tournaments@saca.org.au and he should be able to guide you. At this late stage you might be a reserve initially, but I am sure you will get some games in the season.
