    Youth Chess Olympiad

    This event begins on August 5th in Singapore, and team lists are now up.
    http://www.singaporechess.org.sg/

    The Aussie teams are ranked 4, 17, 21 and 25 respectively of 36 teams, and coached (I understand) by Ian Rogers.

    The top ten teams:

    A pretty tough field, especially the top four, but the Aussies should give it a decent shake.

    I agree that it's a tough field. Though I'd like to see the Australia1 team do well they are going to have a hard time of it on paper. I see that our team rating is almost 550 points below India, ranked 3. If you go 550 points below AUS 1 you reach England ranked 10 so the mid-field is going to be a real contest.

    The original idea was to put in a strong team but so many kids applied that we are able to field an all-girls team, ranked 17, and two other teams. As you can see the two other teams have been composed so as to give the stronger-rated players a go on a high board rather than have team 3 heaps stronger than team 4.

    Ian Rogers is coach and Jenni Oliver, whose idea it was to assemble our best possible team, is Team Manager.

    Best of success to all of them!

    But we also know that all five of the Aussies are capable of beating players rated 2300-2400 (or in Moulthun's case even 2500). If they have a good day at the right time, almost anything is possible. There is another X factor in that Moulthun and Raymond haven't played many tournaments recently (although Raymond may be training hard in China), so their form is an unknown.

    Australia 1 beat Hong Kong 4-0. 2,3 and 4 lost (3,4 and 4 respectively).

    Ukraine seems to have withdrawn, leaving Hungary as the overwhelming favourites (and Wesley So of Philippines as the top player by a margin).

    Two rounds tomorrow..

    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    Interestingly (and encouragingly ), Hungary didn't have it all their way in Round 1 :
    Bo. 1 Hungary vs Malaysia 2½:1½
    1.1 Pap Gyula 2424 - FM Anas Nazreen Bakri 2230 ½ - ½
    1.2 FM Mihok Oliver 2402 - Muhammad Izz Saifuddin 0 0 - 1
    1.3 FM Prohaszka Peter 2486 - Sumant Subramaniam 1964 1 - 0
    1.4 Balog Imre 2376 - Justin Ong-Way 0 1 - 0

    Yes indeed - quite a surprise, that. I suspect board 1 won't get another rest for a while..

    Turkey should be an interesting test for Australia 1 - 8th seed, and one of a number of teams around that 2000-2200 rating level. On paper, Australia should win comfortably, but as round 1 showed, FIDE ratings are not always an accurate predictor for the under 16s.

    Only round 2, and already things are interesting. Australia 1 was pipped by Turkey 2.5-1.5, but India was only able to manage 2-2 vs Indonesia, and Hungary dropped another point vs Singapore 2. Uzbekistan skipped to the top with a 3-1 win over Sri Lanka.

    Congrats to Aussie 3 and 4 for blanking Macau and UAE. Aussie 2 drew with Chinese Taipei.

    Australia 1 beat Malaysia 3 - 1 in round 3 with Junta and Max winning and Moulthun and Zhigen drawing. They play Iran in round 4. I see that the management (presumably Ian Rogers) is rotating the players so that they all get plenty of action. Aus 1 is now 7th - Iran is 5th. Aus 3, 4 and 2 are placed 17th, 25th and 29th respectively.

    UAE lost to Aust. 2 0-4

    Aust. 3 drew with Singapore 3

    USA 2 beat Aust. 4 3:1

    After four rounds Aust 1 is ranked 4th on 11.5 after Hungary, India and Uzbekistan on 12. Philippines ranked 5th with 11. Australia 3 is in 18th spot, Australia 2 is 23rd and Aust. 4 is coming 27th (out of 34 teams)

    India drew with Uzbekistan and the Philippines lost to Hungary 1.5 to 2.5

    2.2 Ochoa Karl Victor 0 - Pap Gyula 2424 0 - 1

    Australia 1 go 2-2 with Uzbekistan. A good result given the form they were in.

    Aussies face the top ranked Hungarian team next (who were humiliated 3.5-0.5 by India). India now have a 1.5 point buffer, and will be hard to catch (having played Uzbekistan and Hungary already). It looks already as though the places will be fought between the current top 6 teams: India (15.5), Turkey (14), Uzbekistan (14), Philippines (13.5), Australia 1 (13.5) and Hungary (12.5). Switzerland are also on 12.5, but I don't think they will figure.

    Results for the 6th round are up. Australia 1 drew with Hungary.
    3.1 Ly Moulthun 2295 - FM Fodor Tamas Jr 2436 1 - 0
    3.2 Lin Zhigen Wilson 2174 - Pap Gyula 2424 0 - 1
    3.3 Song Raymond 2182 - FM Prohaszka Peter 2486 ½ - ½
    3.4 Illingworth Max 2137 - Balog Imre 2376 ½ - ½

    Australia 2 drew with Australia 3 and Australia 4 beat Zambia.

    India is way ahead on 19 points having crushed Turkey. They now play the Philippines who are in 2nd place, on 16.

    Australia 1 (on 15.5) plays Switzerland in the 7th round.
