There are almost no details about this upcoming event on the NSWCA website. Clubs need to form teams and this needs some time beforehand. Does anyone have more info about this event? Thanks.

Look mate, once that baby pops out, that's it! You can kiss chess goodbye. So you may as well get in a day of chess and play for my team. C'mon mate!

Hi George,
This post is in the wrong place... It should be in "Help and Feedback". This thread is about the Grade Matches!

What is this?I believe it does not kick in immediately but requires some sort of housekeeping script to run. It should be working for you by tomorrow,

If it isnt then as Lee suggested post a query over in the feedback thread.

The teams rating divisions are based on the team average rating. What happens with unrated players?

I know when Ralph ran it last year the unrated players were given estimated ratings.

Given the NSWCA has had trouble over the years with players claiming to be unrated turning out to be quite strong players from overseas, and who "forgot" to inform the organisers of this fact, does the NSWCA have a policy of dealing with this, both pre and post tournament?

Also note this is played at Rapid time controls.
Therefore just like last year Rapid ratings are used.

Bunta, a player rated below 1000 can be a asset if a team has 3 players with an average just over 1800 and don't want to be in the open division were they would be up against a team(s) of 2000+ players. You simply slot in at number four and bring them into the under 1600 division.

Just show up and there is always a spot somewhere. :)

There will be 5 Sydney Uni Teams! The top team includes Tomek Rej and 1minGM! The fifth team needs a player though....

Or

It's a bit late to be organising, isn't it? I don't know of any collies players who might be going from here but you could try ringing Matt to see. Or Candy-Cane if she reads this in time.

Unbelievable! In the last round, the two top boards for Hyde Park CC lost to players rated well below 1600. George Xie popped a Queen while our board 2, Vladimir Smirnov, overlooked a simpe tactic and lost a piece.

The performance of the event was that of Tomek Rej's. He cleaned up his opponents with a stunning 7/7. Tomek's wins included an upset against George Xie and a gorgeous win over Andrew Bird on the white side of a KID Bayonet - quite beautiful a game.

Congrats to Sydney Uni 1. They had a formidable team that included no less than the current Sydney Rapid champ, Jason Chan, on board 2. Thank you also to the Hyde Park CC players - FM George Xie, Vladimir Smirnov, Harris Muljadi and Michael Dunn.

I should mention also an important visitor, Evelyn Koshnitsky. During her visit she spent much time talking to Lloyd Fell. What would these two talk about, of course, but to reminisce about old days?

Bill Gletsos officiated. No major issues arose other than, I think, Peter Hanna's complaint. I leave it to Peter to elaborate.

Excellent results by the players on 6 points and above.

Rej was on board 1, Muljadi on board 3, Chan on board 2, Yap, Kumar and Sweeney all on board 4.

Bill Gletsos officiated. No major issues arose other than, I think, Peter Hanna's complaint. I leave it to Peter to elaborate.Actually Peter made no complaint.
He asked a question, but decided to answer it himself.
He pointed out that the player on the board next to him pressed Peter's clock about 5 times by mistake.
Peter reckoned that if he had summoned the arbiter and lodged a complaint about it, the arbiter should disqualify the player for disturbing him and interfering in his game.
I told him that as far as I was concerned that wouldnt happen.
In my opinion the player clearly was doing it by accident. After all it served the player no benefit by pressing Peter's close and only disadvantaged the player because his clock continued to run. In fact it was highly likely the player was unaware he was pressing the wrong clock at all.
As such if Peter has complained, I would have informed the player to be more careful and stop doing it.
In fact if Peter had called me after the second offence, after I informed the player of his error the player would in all likely hood would have stopped doing it.

One could nearly argue that by Peter allowing him to continually do it, he contributed to it continuing to happen. :hmm:

I ended up winning that game anyhow rather than the player being disqualified :D This game was played up the top part and two boards were very close together. In fact I went to hit the other clock myself at one stage as i was absorbed by the position on the board. This was probably my hardest fought game of the day! An interesting Benoni where at one stage i was two or tree pawns down but black was struggling to develop...

I see Sweeney recommending we should have

Then rego at ten, start 10:30.This is just silly. The club doesnt open till 10am.
Firstly if I had followed what was announced on the tournament advert "Registration closes 10.30 a.m." then very few teams would have been included. In fact I'm fairly certain Sweeneys team wouldnt have been entered in time. You could just imagine the howls from him if that would have happened.

The problem is simple. Very few teams informed us prior to the day they were entering a team. That means nearly all the information need to be entered on the day.
You need to enter all the players individually. You need to add up their ratings to determine the team average.
You then need to create another SP tournament consisting of just the teams with a multi-game of 4 as it is the one that does the actual teams pairing.
That all takes time.

However more importantly the whole idea of this event is that it be a fun event. We also wanted to accomodate all the teams.

Trent, it is always the same at nearly every NSWCA, NSWJCL, and Club event. The process of accepting entries is a kinda organised and kinda not up to speed.Unlike all our arbiters, Matt has never run a big event. As such he cannot speak from any experience in this regard.

The DOPs never have enough help and the help that they have are trying to do two or three tings at once. It is the DOP's job to ensure that that does not happen.There was no problem with people helping to setup the equipment.
The problem was the sheer number of teams and the lack of early entries. As far as I am aware Sweeney didnt inform anyone he was going to enter a team, let alone the makeup of it.

As per our discussion last Sunday, could you please discuss with NSWCA Council the possibility of awarding board prizes? Given your substantial bank account, this should not be a problem.

Also, can we have this event 2x a year? It is sooo much fun! The numbers speak for themselves.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Great! But I meant prizes for this event just passed. And we specifically request little trophies at least, not money.

Brilliant! I hope this crew can be the beginning of a chess culture in unis. In my beloved RP, chess is very serious in unis.

Better still the SU rapid play was not time increment

Better still the SU rapid play was not time incrementI suspect the main reason for that is they dont have sufficient digital clocks and has nothing to do with any opposition to incremental time controls.

It seems to be accepted that 20 min with 10 sec increment per move defactoly becomes 30 mins, so why not just put 30 mins? No because slow players want a second bite of the cherry.

One would hardly call the winners of the teams event or the recent COS Rapid slow players.
The players want the game to be determined across the board and not via Article 10.2. Thats why they prefer increments.

It is still ultimately determined by clock and board either way. But an advantage is taken away from some players who are "better" players at managing time.
