    Very impressed to see the results for rounds 1-2 of the Victorian Juniors are up just hours after play finished! http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/vicchess/04vicjunres.htm Just the u18s/u16s/u14s for now - the u12s/u10s are next weekend.

    Most of my students (who b.t.w. constitute exactly one-third of the field!) didn't have much to write home about, since a lot of them were either playing way up or way down. However, I'm very glad I persuaded Derek Yu to play the U18s understead of the u12s, since despite being rated only 1140 he knocked over an underrated 1821-player and then someone else rated 1614!

    Yes. This coming week-end.
    2004 Victorian Junior Championships
    *
    These championships are held yearly and titles are to be won for boys and girls in the under 18, under 16, under 14, under 12, and under 10
    .
    There are trophies and money prizes in all age groups
    .
    The championships this year are organised by Whitehorse Junior Chess Inc, the junior offshoot of the Box Hill Chess Club.
    Whitehorse Junior Chess is separately affiliated with Chess Victoria
    .
    There are 33 entrants in the tournament that decides the under 18, under 16 and the under 14 titles.
    This tournament is held over 2 weekends and 8 rounds are played
    *
    The tournament that decides the under 12 and under 10 titles has 60 entrants, and is held over one weekend and also has 8 rounds but the rounds are of a shorter duration
    *
    The prize giving function is set for 6 PM this Sunday and we hope that the Mayor will say a few words and then present the prizes at 6.15 and leave at 6.30. As the finish of all the games it is not always predictable [sometimes playoff games are necessary]. We expect however that the majority of the 22 prizes on offer will be decided and able to be awarded within that time frame. *Coffee tea and light refreshments will be available
    *

    It always amuses me when this happens. We have three players tied for =1st in the U12s, and all of them are eligible to win the U10s as well!

    James Morris (one of Denis Bourmistrov's students)
    Eugene Schon (well-known from the 'underrated juniors' thread)
    &
    Shuyu Wang (<---this one's a girl, and I'm guessing she was the surprise packet? I must say I think she's improved a lot since the start of the year, although she faces the defending champion this morning and that will be a tough challenge.)

    I'd like to thank the organizers for doing such a good job. No doubt starter will post a link to the final results, but I can recite the titlewinners from memory:

    Denis Bourmistrov - VICTORIAN JUNIOR CHAMPION
    Dusan Stojic - VICTORIAN UNDER-16 CHAMPION
    Ruperto Lugo VICTORIAN UNDER-14 CHAMPION
    Rengan Vijayakumar VICTORIAN UNDER-12 CHAMPION
    Eugene Schon VICTORIAN UNDER-10 CHAMPION
    Casey Hickman VICTORIAN GIRLS CHAMPION
    Elena Galiabovich - VICTORIAN GIRLS UNDER-16 CHAMPION
    Vanja Rozenblat VICTORIAN GIRLS UNDER-14 CHAMPION
    Sally Yu VICTORIAN GIRLS UNDER-12 CHAMPION
    Shuyu Wang VICTORIAN GIRLS UNDER-10 CHAMPION

    - Denis beat Dusan in a playoff
    - Ruperto beat Rukman Vijayakumar in a playoff
    - Rengan beat Alan Genton in a playoff
    - Eugene beat James Morris in a playoff
    - Casey beat Elena in a playoff
    - Shuyu beat Chloe Lauder in a playoff

    A little trivia question: what do all of the title-winners have in common? (And no, I don't coach ALL of them)

    Indeed. Thus demonstrating the importance of a solid base of those much maligned volunteers to a successful club. Obviously I'm not talking about myself here (although I'm a volunteer for the club in my capacity as an archivist) but guys like Phil and Trevor and Gerrit and others too who keep everything running smoothly. Seriously I wonder why someone in, say, Sydney doesn't try the idea moving out of the Leagues clubs and creating a junior-friendly place like Box Hill.

    On the other hand, I'm well aware that there are certain ways in which NSW chess is much much better than Victorian chess (e.g. we have have no group of dedicated volunteers running a junior league).
