Not a lot of upsets - only 4 1/2 points (2 wins and 5 draws) for the underdogs from 73 games, one of the wins pulled off by Watto who defeated an opponent rated 2052.

Great to see Max on 3/3. Good luck v Dejan B! And congrats to Little Jimmy on drawing with "The Green Knight" who is second seed.

PS. I do NOT recommend reading Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in the original Middle English. My wife has done so as part of her University studies!

I've been too slack to change it, but any "not paired in this round" were half-point byes (other than round 1, who were late registrations), on the chance anyone was wondering.

Round 7 featured a 177 move draw between FM Max Illingworth and Zhao Xue (GM, female, from China). An amazing game which earlier than move 80or so it seemed Max was winning.

Well I think that a lot of that monster game was just analysis, since the 50 move rule applies from about move 149...:wall:

Shaun Press reports that Max did not claim the draw when first entitled to:

http://www.chessexpress.blogspot.com/2012/01/history-repeats.html

(also highly unlikely that players of that level would bother analysing an ending they both knew to be drawn after already playing a tough game of several hours).

No. The event allows for half-point byes on request:

"Half-point byes in the Queenstown Chess Classic: To give flexibility to chess enthusiasts combining the tournament with a holiday: Any player may elect to take up to two half point byes, to be taken no later than round seven. However, any New Zealand player who wishes to be eligible to win a New Zealand National Championship title (or an automatic Olympiad team spot) must play all nine rounds. Anyone taking a half point bye must advise the arbiter prior to the round starting the previous day. Half-point byes are not allowed for invited players who are receiving conditions."

Read the thread earlier, where I explained that I was too lazy to change the display, but any "not paired this round" was a half-point bye.

Yes! It was THAT long. :doh:

Although either player could claim under 50 move rule after move 149, only one of the players can claim according to the Laws of Chess!
Even though it was one of the most closely supervised game with 4 arbiters, nobody is allowed to end the game despite the 50 move rule becoming applicable long ago.

So, if the strategy is to play on until the opponent loses consciousness through sheer exhaustion, and then win on time, it is permitted.

GM Zhao Xue vs FM Max Illingworth last night was a real epic 8hour plus game.

Maybe Max misread the 50move rule as a 50banana rule. So he'd only claim a draw after consuming 50bananas!!! :lol: :lol:

I believe that Trevor Tao, having defeated Ikeda today, will secure an IM norm by turning up tomorrow against any remotely conceivable opponent. (This is unofficial so someone may want to check my calculations.) He has two previous norms but these are from a long time ago.

Fascinating article. Thanks Kevin. I am trying out Google Wave and now there is more material for the book on Trevor. A third IM norm. IM in waiting.
All Google Waves are read only now. Slight change of direction by the company.

Somewhat of an understatement actually.

I think it is safe to say that Trevor's brother Terry is the greatest mathematician Australia has produced to this point. Certainly when measured on esteem - having won the Fields Medal (the most prestigious prize in Mathematics and the only Australian to have done so) and I read recently the Crafoord prize.

Such points are certainly arguable but I can't think of another contender (living or dead) in his league. How he did not win Australian of the Year when he was nominated is totally beyond me.

Yes and after this tournament he is only a handful of rating points shy of crossing the rating line.

I should warn that because of the age of Trevor's previous norms it could take quite a while for me to get all the details together when he does cross.

What line is he supposed to cross?

Good question since he is 2422 FIDE.

You're right - I was thinking of 2450 but that is the performance target for norms, the rating target being 2400, so provided we can get his old norms in order and accepted that should be it.

Yes! It was THAT long. :doh:

Although either player could claim under 50 move rule after move 149, only one of the players can claim according to the Laws of Chess!
Even though it was one of the most closely supervised game with 4 arbiters, nobody is allowed to end the game despite the 50 move rule becoming applicable long ago.

So, if the strategy is to play on until the opponent loses consciousness through sheer exhaustion, and then win on time, it is permitted.

GM Zhao Xue vs FM Max Illingworth last night was a real epic 8hour plus game.

Maybe Max misread the 50move rule as a 50banana rule. So he'd only claim a draw after consuming 50bananas!!! :lol: :lol:

they played and played and played. I thought it was a case of Max saying "I am gonna get you lady!" and his opponent was like: "Bring it on mate"!

Standard size DGT boards, so the squares and pieces are as normal, but there's a bit extra on the edge of the boards to allow for the electronics.

We just piggyback on Oz, as normal :).

That's ok since you allow us to play in the Queenstown.I meet so many Kiwis in Melbourne and so I looked for a number and that is 566 815 * New Zealand citizens were present in Australia in 2010.

Hey Craig, keep them hopeless drongos out of NZ! Apart from not knowing what a digital board looks like, (let alone having played on one), they can't even afford to visit their local club, let alone making the trip over to Queenstown! hehe :lol:
