I notice that the junior weibemeister has been busy at the Box Hill web-site giving details of forthcoming tournaments (http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2005/e0501fac/event.htm)

I wonder if the Treasurer knows about the $500 first prize in the Box Hill Autumn Cup for 2005. :uhoh: ;)

And as a result of Rob's great work on the Box Hill web-site you can now enter the AUTUMN CUP via the web-site (http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2005/e0501fac/entry.htm) . Given that up to 33% discounts are available for early payment, that is quite a good idea to enter early.

Good morning Starter,

I was wondering - have you ever thought of running a Transfer Tournament at Box Hill? I reckon it would be WAY popular.

I have considered organising one myself except I have 2 problems:
1) lack of a suitable venue
2) I want to play in it!

W.E.

hi WhiteElephant

I think I remember reading somewhere that RJ Fischer said 'timing is everything in chess'. Your interesting suggestion is either 4 weeks late for our 2005 calendar (now approved by the BHCC Committee) or 45 weeks early for consideration for the 2006 calendar. :P

Best wishes for the festive season btw.

Now. Transfer. :hmm:

I take it you have read the transfer rules posted somewhere here (on the bb) in the past year? When you have read these, tell me you still want to proceed.

In the mean-time, while you check out the rules, did you know that the GURU has run the Australian Transfer Championships previously; and that the ACF gave its imprimatur. We would feel that the GURU has first call on a follow-up event in Melbourne. ;) In fact if we were to pretend to being Gazza, drafting a by-law for such a situation, it would start with the sub-heading 'Transfer rights for Transfer chess'. :uhoh:

There is probably a lot going for the event you call for.
In fact the GURU was probably on the right track with his early ideas, at
Mt B. 1, to have a festival of game opportunities that would include, GO, cards, Transfer, Lightning, and many other pass-time variants.

As always, the trick is to find an organiser.

Dammit I know. Reading your Calendar is what got me thinking about other possibilities.

Thanks starter. All the best for the New Year and of course for the Boxing Day Test - Are you going?

I did a quick search but couldn't find any mention of the rules. I can't imagine there would be any surprises for me there so I think I am safe to proceed.

Yes, I played in the Australian Transfer Championships and my team came 2nd...yay (no hope in hell of beating the legendary pairing of Julian and Igor).

I agree, chess variants are always popular. Perhaps I will impose on the GURU to organise a Transfer Tournament at Caulfield Chess Club?

Your feeling would be incorrect.
The Guru ran an Australian Transfer Championship but didnt approach the ACF first. As such it was an event in name only. (It seemed more of a Victorian event than an "Australian" event anyway.)
It was only at the ACF Council meeting in April 2004 that it was decided to recognise an Australian Transfer Champion title in future.
Therefore anyone wishing to hold an Australian Transfer Championship in future would need to submit a bid to the ACF.
Failure to do so would make it just another event called the Australian Transfer Championship but with no official recognition.

hi Bill

Hope you are are having a pleasant few days in the festive season.

Now you had to read my comment in the context of a BH calendar thread and Mexican priority order. I was commenting to George that BHCC as a Victorian Club, setting our local BH calendar, would first recognise the GURUs green-fields work for the Aus. Tfr Champs. We would not jump the queue, nor bid against him for the next promoting of the event.
Of course I recognise the ACF has the call in awarding this event, not VICTORIA.

Thanks for your advice on the detail that the GURU's first event was not in fact recognised with an ACF title.




CV could of course always arrange to hold a Victorian Transfer Championship. ;)

And my point to George would still stand: We would recognise the GURU's prior efforts in this venture, and we (BHCC) would not apply to queue-jump.

Heh this is great stuff. One of the funniest things I've read for a long time.

As far as I know the GURU has no plans to run another Transfer Tournament in the near future. I don't see why it would be queue-jumping if you organised one - shouldn't any club have the right to run any tournament they want? Unless it is a Victorian/ Australian title in which case you would need to get the ok from CV or the ACF as Bill has pointed out.

Glad you liked it George. We have infringed Ian's (probable) copyright a few times by re-printing it in our local bulletins.
Now that you have found this treasure trove of good posts ;) :uhoh: perhaps you can make this your holiday reading.

I think it goes without saying that we would yield to the GURU having precedence in this area. And, with an Australian title as a possibility, as Bill said, we (BHCC) would want to observe the proprietaries.

The Guru ran an unofficial Australian Transfer Championship.
He has no right of precedence for any Australian Transfer Title event or for that matter any VIC Transfer tilte event.
Anyone in VIC could run a transfer event.
If it was to be called the Autralian Transfer Title then they just need to apply to the ACF.
If it was for the VIC title then apply to CV.

(Colour edit by starter).

Bill

You said exactly this before; and I explained that I agree entirely.
Formally, according to right of precedence , the ACF has the call.
But we would be polite and not proceed to jump into territory that we currently regard, in an informal sense, as the GURU's, until he had declared his intentions.

The second evening of the Fischer_Random tournament had two games , both at time controls 30mpg + 10spm.
The starting position for the two games was (left to right for White)
Rook, King, Bishop, Knight, Queen, Knight, Rook, Bishop.

Before play starts there is an enjoyable social interaction as little groups of players try to explore the basic strategies required of the revealed position.
Questions to the Arbiter before play commences inevitably are the single "How does castling work in F_R".
The answer is always the same
> K-side; K to g1, R to e1
>> Q-side; K to c1, R to d1.

However, tonight, a couple of new questions emerged which sparked some novelty to blase arbiters.
1 Which is the K-side for black.
2 If white moves the K from its (tonight) starting position (on b1) to c1; then how does Black know if White has a) completed a King move, or b) is half-way through castling.

I will not spoil your fun by revealing the arbiters advice immediately.

**************************************
A little of the history and previous winners follows >

The Box Hill Chess Club AUTUMN CUP gained prominence in 1993 as the Club copied a good naming idea from the Dandenong Chess Club, and we elevated a small Club event into the full focus of recording winners on a trophy. The first winner was David Flude and to commemorate the occasion he donated the materials for a handsome trophy which Life member Gordon Wilby turned from wood.
Although we copied the naming idea from the DCC we still have a bit to learn because we play our tournament mainly in summer, with the finish just in autumn.

The winners of the 2005 Box Hill Fischer_Random tournament were

1st Tuan Le
2nd Nur Yachou

Best in the bottom half of the table
1st Rob McCulloch.

The event looked to be Nur Yachou's coming into the 8th round as he was paired with a player in the bottom half (Recherche). However the 4th dimension came into play and an upset occurred.

This is the third time this event has been held. Feedback was more supportive on this occasion as quite a few players said they enjoyed the half-hour before games started where social discussion on what strategy to adopt for the randomised back-rank was a topic of great interest.

Box Hill Autumn Cup 2005

Six players over 2000 ACF rating have been attracted to the 2005 Box Hill Autumn Cup with a first prize of $500.
In total, the field size is 88 for this first major tournament of the year.
The event is scheduled for 7 rounds, held on Friday evenings at 7.45pm. One evening corresponds with the Begonia week-ender, and players will be able to postpone from that Friday so that they can attend the week-ender.

The headline entrant withdrew before start of play, but plenty of existing entrants fancied their chances anyway.
We avoided the bye by roping in an adult parent as a casual.

The organisers arrived early to set up the Hall; just in time to find that half the power had been lost to the Melbourne storms on Wednesday night. Also, some rooms were awash with water seeping from who knows where. Just the challenge we needed with the field due to arrive at their customary last minute entry fee.

The players were introduced to the new assistant D.O.P. (KLyall; a poster on this bb). Obviously Mt Buller attendance whetted this parent's appetite for chess administration. And what is special is that this asst DOP is a lady. Although the L-plates were on tonight we found entries put into SP progressively, and all score-sheets neatly sorted and checked.

The first big upset of the night was Recherche's win over Nur Yachou (rated 1785); this shows the Mt Buller Minor win was no fluke for our intrepid bb poster.

Two past presidents of the Club showed a welcome return to playing...Rolf Exner and Arie Meydan. As luck would have it Rolf got paired with the current president (on this BB with an avatar that was a gift from Barry Cox).


The senior D.O.P. explained the tournament conditions to start the field. Rengan Vijayakumar's win in the Australian U12 Championship was warmly applauded.

Eight ladies and girls in a field size of 88 is not the 50-50 we would all like to see but each one of them is valuable to the Club.

After 3 rounds of the 2005 Autumn Cup we have 3 players in A division tied on 3/3.
Domagoj Dragicevic, John Nemeth, and Chris Wallis have a handy break over the top seed Dimitri Partsi and Denis Bourmistrov.
Two other juniors Edward Rice and Rukman Vijayakumar are on 2.5/3, and the SWISS pairing system has paired them (provisionally) in round 4.

In B Division Eugene Schon is the only undefeated player, but he will have his work cut-out in round 4 as he floats up into A Division to meet Artem Nikolayevsky.

In round 4, board 27 features a terrific contest between Vladimir Zacharczenko and Anton Nincevic; I will keep my eye on this one.

Sunday 20/2/5 saw 42 players in the Rookies Cup which was a good start to the year. First place was on by a wide margin by James Morris. We needed a few more seniors to play on the day.

Tuesday evenings are proceeding with the New SEASON Swiss. Marcus Raine, David Flude, Anthony Miller and Bob Bergmanis are undefeated on 2/2. There are 34 in the field.

Have you ever been to Melbourne Cental station?

It used to be a beautiful example of an engineers craft at designing easy exit from underground platforms to Swanston and Latrobe streets. Off the train, up the escalators, up 4 steps...and there you were blinking in the sunlight.
But now it is a major back-pack journey as the new design winds its way past arcades of shops and tempting drink/food courts.

I was watching some of the games in the Box Hill New Season SWISS last night (Pairings here, if you are interested) (http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2005/e0502tns/round5.htm) and was grumbling at some of the micro-juniors who finish a 60+30spm game in 15 minutes flat. It requires their parents xx minutes to drive to the Club, drop the kid, drive home, get the phone call from the Club to come and pick up the kid, drive to the Club, pick up the kid, drive home again....and the kid thinks for 15 minutes tops. :rolleyes: :confused:

But much later in the evening (around 10pm) my heart was lifted when I asked the evanescent John Butler (80+, and no longer a micro-junior) how he won against the pixie-like micro-Arginie on board 9.
John said simply, "she L.O.T."

An excerpt from my winner's speech at the Transfer tourn:

'...It's great to see so many of you playing transfer, it's a great game and perhaps more fun than regular chess so I hope you all continue to play it as much as possible!'

Speaking of, there was a great exhibition last night on FICS, the top four Transfer players in Australia (by a long way) were having a NSW (J Tan, N Wright) vs. VIC (I Bjelobrek, J McDonald) showdown.

Oh so the Queens are your problem? There's a solution: Play slightly different rules. To avoid confusion, if the pawn reaches the end OTB, it turns to stone.

Online of course and the more favoured rules, pawns can queen (yet once recaptured, they revert to being a pawn).

As usual it is 7 round allegro starting at 12.30. See our web site though this link (www.boxhillchess.org.au) and click on the Whitehorse junior chess icon.

A big secret is that if a Dad or Mum joins the family into Whitehorse Junior Chess Inc then this is a much better financial deal than individual membership of Box Hill Chess Club. And permits entry (without visitors fees) into many events at this co-joint site.

What about the other prizes?

I have it on good authority that BoxHill uses its very own system that is not used anywhere else in the civilized world.

---> If the first prize is $500, then the 2nd is $150 and the 3rd is $100.

---> Or if the prize is $50, then the second is $15 and there's no third.

---> Or sometimes its the first prize of $500, and there's no third prize AT ALL!

Can anybody guess which part of the system is advertized and which is kept hidden?

hi Phil O'Dor

You are quite correct to highlight that we have been experimenting with various prize arrangements. There is a group at Dandenong who have been pressing us to increase the 1st prize so that we attract them, and other higher rated players. In fact at the AGM the suggestion put to us was a $1000 first prize was probably necessary.

Re your comment that our arrangements are not seen elsewhere in the civilized world leaves me a bit uncertain as to whether this is a criticism or a complement by you.
Correct me if I am wrong, but whatever tournament conditions we offered you would not play at BHCC.....I will await your response.


As for a happy camper being disappointed he did not win 3rd prize...well that is one of the drawbacks of a large first prize. I think your camper was probably also a member of the guys who would like a $1000 first prize...and that would mean no 2nd prize either.The cake is only a given size. Anyhow, your comment has cleared up one guess as to your identity Phil. The recent Autumn Cup had three blokes each take $250 down to the Casino.
Details on this web-page. (http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/e2005/e0502fac/results.htm) .
Perhaps your third placed mate was there to help them celebrate?

hi Bill

Reasonable question....and a bit of history behind it. It was advertised on the web-site as 4 rounds the first night and 5 the next (from memory). But that was being too conservative by allowing input time for loading SP on the first night. Actually we got going rather close to on time and this allowed time for the extra round. We announced 3 times during the evening..."don't go home after round 4...there is a 5th", but we lost a couple anyway. :rolleyes:

Now as to being unhappy...........well ALLEGRO's are really just a social occasion for the A crew to pair off, win some money for the Casino, and talk about "who is Dorophil". Nothing too serious.
Next week is different...the Championship starts....$500 first prize (oh..and other prizes too... :uhoh: ;) )

Well yes and no gg''. :uhoh:

Senior tourneys with 60 entries we just let SP do the pairings without much finesse.

But the ROOKIES Cup has sometimes been a 4 division tourney because the ratings vary from 150 to 1800.

Turnout for todays ROOKIES Cup was a bit low on juniors....probably due to Victorian school holidays.

Tuan Le, Peter Froehlich both on 6/7
Dusan Stojic on 5.5/7
Mehmed Dizdarevic on 5/7

Dusan is the only young gun to have stood up in this tourney.
It has not been the best tourney result for D Dragicevic, D Bourmistrov, and J Nemeth, who must now be looking over their shoulder at other emerging talent besides the current Victorian U18 champion.

The Froehlich v Tuan Le game was the third last of 42 boards to finish; so it should have had a large crowd (this was Marcus' comment). Unfortunately it went so late that there only a handful watching. In the after-game analysis PF kept finding moves for Tuan Le that seemed to be very good, but across the board Tuan seemed to be a notch down. So, Peter won the $500 first prize on his own. Tuan and Milenko Lojanica shared second.

Eugene Schon won B division by a margin after a good draw (have a look at my tips two posts back :cool: )in the last round against Peter Frost. Frankly, this proves for me the value of the intermingling divisionalised format that we adopt. Eugene, in Division B, floated up 5 times in 8 rounds to play A Division players and got the challenge he desired. Rob McCulloch's reservations about quarantining were not tested because all players who could win B found themselves floated up in round 8.
B Division was U1400.

The next tournament to start at Box Hill, on Fridays, is the KNOCKOUT Rapid Play over three weeks.

Fresh from the success, in the well run BH Championship and the highly visible VIC OPEN, the club organisers now run a knock-out competition with two rounds per night and the losers cascade into a parallel running SWISS competition. I still have fond memory of Amiel standing with the flyer in his hand, looking at the attempted explanatory diagram on the back page. He was muttering "We have nothing like this in NSW".

Come along to the Club and play in this Rapid Play and watch the organisers melt-down as they attempt to keep track of proceedings.
Although the event is a knockout competition, you are assured of 2 games per night for three weeks.

hi Mrs Holy

Yes there is a ROOKIES Cup on today. It is on nearly every month on the 3rd Sunday in the month. Usually attracts 50 juniors and about 15 adults. Usually three different prize groups
> Adults
> Master juniors
> Newbie juniors

Trophies handed out to newbies if they do well.
Not much money to go around the other groups as the entry fee is low; and the $2 ratings fee causes a bit of erosion too. But a few go home quite happy with their winnings.

Organisers usually depart the venue in a very frazzled state at 6.30pm or later. And no Malcolm, we are not going to risk a cuff around the ears on the home front by starting later.

The July Rookie's Cup attracted a field of 48 players -mostly juniors.

Thank you to the Potter boys who helped set up all the boards, and we were ready for a 12.30 start. Not so the players who kept dribbling in until 1.10.pm. Games started at 1.00 - so a few late games had to be played in the first round.

First adult - Leon Kampon

First junior - James Morris
4 juniors shared second place

Full details will be posted on the Box Hill Chess Club site shortly.

Thanks to Gerrit Hartland - arbiter, Trevor Stanning who took the money and did the data entry, to Rick (parent) who took the scores, to Linda who helped me in the tea room, and to the band of helpers who helped pack up - Rowena, David Flude and others.

Good competition in the adults group from Leon Kempen, Marcus Raine, John Wildes, Malcolm Pyke, Chris Potter, Arie Meydan, David Flude and others; with the first-mentioned taking home the first prize, and AM the second cash prize.
The top ROOKIE was James Morris who has quite a support group. The Queens cup was shared by Jennie Fan and Kim Pakshong.
Actually it is not a cup these days but a handsome shield; now how do you put a large shield on display for a month?
There were 6 rating groups with trophy prizes....details will appear eventually on our web-site.
