Inaugural event just complete. Congratulations to Belthasar in taking out the event. TooheysNew was leading for much of the way after RTPonting's shock result vs the author in round 2, however RTPonting bounced back well and snatched the lead in after 4 rounds and cemented that position with a strong final round.

It was a double round robin with TC of 3min+2sec/move. All games were FICS rated.


No Name Rtg Total 1 2 3 4 5 6

1 RTPonting 1684 8.0 * 2 = 2 1= 2
2 TooheysNew 1584 7.0 0 * 2 1 2 2
3 rockwimp 1593 6.0 1= 0 * 1 1= 2
4 MeRkaVa 1624 4.0 0 1 1 * 1 1
5 northodox 1220 3.0 = 0 = 1 * 1
6 Kaitlin 1200 2.0 0 0 0 1 1 *

Yeah, I'm very sorry about that. I even made the point of asking Dr Z to show me how to run an RR with SP cos I was gonna DOP. But I just have too much work to do tomorrow.

I really hope we get a good turn out tonight. Unfortunately I'm very busy with uni stuff at the moment so if it is going to continue then someone else has to care enough to run it. arosar (MeRkaVa) offered before but had to miss last week. Hope your not too busy tonight, mate.

OK . . . I think I can shuffle a couple things around, so I'll be there. But I'm not very good with SP so it'll be slow.

Thanks. If it is the same size turn out - and you just run a double round robin event - then you don't really need to use SP. That is the equivalent of using sledgehammer to crack walnuts.

Merkava rolls the opposition. Seems congratulations and thanks are in order. :clap:

We will have to send Rogers over to Jess's backyard to plunder all the prizemoney - good luck to him anyway, he was a nice chap. I wonder how popular he would be if he made it a habit.

I understand he plans to move to Melbourne provided all the immigration paper work, etc, can be sorted out. He has already secured a chess coaching position there. So hopefully Jesse will be a regular part of the Australian Chess landscape for some time to come.
