On May 29 Team Rainbow are organising a social day of chess. If you know someone who wants to find out what a chess tournament is all about, not just from "Queen's Gambit" then tell them about this competition. It is for players of all ages but juniors can put this towards their QJ ratings. It is the longest duration for a rapid chess game and will encourage you to think for just that bit longer and be better prepared for the classical arena. This event will not appear on the CAQ calendar, so you will only get news through Chesschat or by contacting the organisers.
Otherwise just come and have fun

A reminder to all that the inaugural Rainbow Beach competition is now just over a month away. It is a day trip from Brisbane; so come and enjoy yourselves. This competition is designed to be an introduction to competitive chess for those who haven't tried it.
So all the details are here all you have to do is enter.

I don't think it's been specifically mentioned, but this event will be held in Rainbow Beach, a small town on the Sunshine Coast near Gympie. I'm sure it will be a great event, but there's an unfortunate clash with the Peninsula Open in Redcliffe.

Yes, the clash with the Peninsula Open is unfortunate. However if you have never played in a tournament and you want your try out for tournament chess, this would be the place to start. As Patrick says the venue is the Rainbow Beach Community Centre, 38 Rainbow Beach Road about 50 min NE of Gympie.

The Rainbow Beach tournament wound up this evening.

You could have used 0.5, or something, though, since you could insert emojis :)

When using the Reply to Thread option, below the text window, under Additional Options the bottom Miscellaneous Option is Disable smilies in text. If this is selected it won't do that.

Moulthun - Me, from memory so hopefully it's right.

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nd2 c5 4. Ngf3 cxd4
5. Nxd4 Nc6 6. Bb5 Bd7 7. Nxc6 bxc6 8. Bd3 Bd6
9. Qe2 e5 10. O-O Qe7 11. c4 d4 12. Rd1 Nf6
13. Nf1 O-O 14. Ng3 Rfe8 15. h3 h6 16. Qf3 Qe6
17. Nf5 Bf8 18. c5 Kh8 19. Bd2 a5 20. Rac1 Nh7
21. Qe2 Qf6 22. Ng3 Ng5 23. b3 Qg6 24. a3 Ne6
25. b4 axb4 26. axb4 Ra2 27. Qf3 Rea8 28. Bc4 R2a3
29. Qf5 R8a7 30. Re1 Kg8 31. Qxe5 Ng5 32. Bxg5 hxg5
33. Qxd4 g4 34. h4 Be6 35. h5 Qh6 36. Bxe6 Qxe6
Can't quite remember the moves after that exactly. We traded a pair of rooks, white knight got to f5, I got heavy piece down to the first rank, king went h2, ...g3+, white had rook on a8 threatening Qxg7# due to the B being pinned. I forced the last rooks off, just couldn't get at the white king well enough, too many pawns. When the queens were coming off and I was heading to a BvN ending 3 pawns down, I resigned. Seemed like I had earlier missed a chance to play 23. ...Ne6 and be better. I had intended to do that but got distracted thinking about tricks on the kingside with Bxh3 etc. Anyway, I thought it was an interesting game.

My game with Ross Lam went something like this, probably minus a transposition or 2.

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 Nc6 3. Nf3 e6 4. g3 Bb4+
5. Bd2 Bxd2+ 6. Nbxd2 O-O 7. Bg2 d6 8. O-O a5
9. Rc1 Qe7 10. Qc2 e5 11. e3 Bd7 12. a3 a4
13. Rfe1 Rfe8 14. dxe5 dxe5 15. Ng5 h6 16. Nge4 Bf5
17. Nxf6+ Qxf6 18. Be4 Bxe4 19. Qxe4 Rad8 20. Red1 Rd7
21. Nb1 Red8 22. Rd5 Qe6 23. Nc3 b6 24. Rcd1 f5
25. Qc2 e4 26. Qxa4 Ne5 27. Rxd7 Rxd7 28. Rd5 Rd6
29. Rxd6 Qxd6 30. Qa8+ Kh7 31. Qd5 Nf3+ 32. Kg2 Qg6
33. Ne2 etc

Somewhere or other the knights then got traded, I won another queenside pawn. Got too adventerous taking my king to the queenside, and managed to lose this one somehow.
