Last years had 6 over 2100.
Isn't the Vic Championship a weekly tournament?
If it is then it was clearly the strongest.

I know mate. What I meant was, a thread you created made those 3 famous at the Champs. The organisers actually presented a screenshot of the BB where those 3 exchanged a few words.

Found it!

It's this plus the following page.

http://www.chesskit.com/auschess/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=auschess;action=display;num=10704116 82;start=0

The organisers just appended a screenshot to one of their bulletins. I think the title was, "The Best of the ACF BB - where chess comes second to everything else". (I'll have to look it up at home).

I personally do not consider Vic Champs a weekly tournament due to amount of playing days/nights a week.

For the record the Vic championship is played 3-4 times a week at different venues, I believe (though could be wrong) that these venues in 2003 were

MCC Thursdays
Box Hill Tuesday
Elwood Saturday
Federation Square Sunday's

Though I am fairly convinced Bobby means the strong club competition in Australia, and on that mark he would not be too far off the mark, with IM's represented almost every year, and occassionally we are graced with Vic's only resident GM.

Hi there MCC people,

I just looked at the field for MCC w'ender and MCC championship and noticed that none of the top 4 players in the w'ender (Bjelobrk, Iraqi FM, Baron, Partsi) entered the championship. Do you know why that is? Could it be that those people didn't like what MCC had to offer?

Also, none of the top 6(!) players in the championship participated in the w'ender... :hmm:

yeah I realised today Barry, but could not edit it, as I do not have access of course to FG's logon. I done that at some ungodly hour of the morning (which for most people may be an excuse), but unfortunately I actually tried to think of what I was writing there, but the saying refused to come into my head :doh: :doh: :doh: :doh: :doh:

Don't you hate that? There is a word for the state of not being able to think of the appropriate word, but I can't recall what it is right now. :D

Part of the reason for my commenting at all was that it gave me the chance to include a mildly obscure Monty Python reference. Better quality of comedy than that Abrahams & Zucker stuff fg7 was quoting in the homophobia thread. ;)

Round 2 09-02-04


Round 2 kicked off with 6 extra players paired into the tournament. 42 players are now competing. The new faces included D.Hacche,A.Fletcher,D.Beaumont,S.Stewart,C.Stewart and S.Wertheim. Sensational to see the Stewart brothers traveling all the way from Ballarat to compete in the MCC championship! Hacche and Beaumont (yours truly) made a long awaited return to the MCC Championship after a number of years not playing in the event. Game of the round was definitely West-Kalisch a masterful wiggling defence by West. Ivanov also showed good technique in defeating his more highly fancied opponent Kovacevic. Just for the record Pecori gained revenge on Roberts and for the first time in about five years remains undefeated against weaker opposition after 2 rounds – Thank goodness was the sigh around the club!

Photos look good! Looks like the coat of paint has really brightened up the place a bit, which is going to make a difference to people attending the club.
Hope the tourney keeps going smoothly.

MCC Championship Round 3 report 16-03-04

Some interesting games this round with most being hard fought. Probably the biggest upset of the round was Kristic gaining the full point against Levi. Hanks-Pyke appeared an odd result, whilst young Yap continues to improve despite losing a long encounter with Stanisheff. Ly held the inferior ending against Fletcher. Pecori lost an absolute epic against Rujevic. Here are the games.

fg7,

Can you please answer the following question for me.

In the Swiss Perfect file submitted for rating by DOP Malcolm Pyke for the MCC Australia Day Weekender there is a player whose name is Rasheed Abdulawahab.

However Ascaro Pecori who played him has stated he is Iraqi FM A. Rasheed Abdul Wahab rated 2296 on the January 2004 Fide list.

Can you please confirm that the player in the the weekender was in fact the Irqai FM.

We always check any player who is listed as OS against the FIDE list but if Ascaro had not mentioned he played an Iraqi FM here on the BB there would have been no way for us to correctly identify him from the SP file.

As such can you ask Malcolm to be a little more careful in future in getting the spelling of players names correct so that they can be correctly identified.

Hanks-Pyke appeared an odd result,

I'll say. Is the scoresheet wrong? - it looks like on move 37 Black declines a free queen to go chasing after a mate.

Bill: sometimes mis-spelling of OS player names isn't the organiser's fault, sometimes I've found the OS player themselves will give variant spellings on different occassions.

Kevin is right the name given to us for the Australian Day weekender is the exact spelling provided by the participant. Difficulty arises with identification, we prefer to take people on there word when they say who they are. Unfortunately, there has been speculation from an unamed source at Dandenong that the said participant might not be who he claims he is. I do not know the truth. But I might add a little analogy myself. Before the infamous Doeberl cup incident, all published games on my chessbase file were my own. After Doeberl cup I have numerous games attributed to me but not played by me. I think Simon Rutherford had a similar problem, with his fide rating being affected by English tournaments he did not play in. I am unsure who to attribute blame to in such circumstances.

Cheers FG7

Bill, fg7
This guy was a late entrant at Box Hill in the Autumn Cup.
The web-pairings show his name as
Rashid, Abdulwahab A

He was a no-show forfeit.

We will be asking the Aus Govt Dept of Immigration for an explanation.

fg7 and starter,
thanks for the info.

Unfortunately it makes it even more difficult because at BH his name os Rashid but at MCC it was Rasheed. Also Rashid appears to be his surname where as Rasheed appears to be his First Name. All very confusing.

I guess what I need to know is do I assume he isnt the Iraqi FM and therefore do not set his FIDE rating as his starting ACF rating, or do I assume he is the Iraqi FM and set it.

I'm inclined based on your comments and his results to assume he is not the Iraqi FM.

Oh, one last question.
Is he still in Australia and if so is he migrating here or has he left already.

22-02-2004, 09:33 PM
Hi Bill,

My understanding is that the player in question has moved to Australia and is living in Dandenong. I suppose only Fide could really clarify the truth of the claim.

Does he claim to be the Iraqi FM.

Perhaps the only way to find out is to ask to see his passport.

Yes. he says he is IRAQI.

Pleasant fellow and v. enthusiastic.
We accepted his late entry, paired him against jeffrei and suffered the no-show. Still investigating.

Correct me if I am wrong Bill, but,

Isn't the onus on the ACF to find out if this player is playing in Iraq? Can't the ACF email the Iraq chess federation? If there is no proof, why should players paired against him miss out on opportunities to gain rating points? I mean, can it be that hard for the ACF to accurately verify the claims?

Cheers FG7

fg7,

thanks for the info.

Actually I would assume if he has migrated to Australia that Gary Bekker would be arranging for him to have his federation changed to AUS.

The only confusing issue is the apparent multitude of different spellings of his name.

For the time being I'll assume he is the Iraqi FM and preset his ACF rating accordingly.

I can always change/correct this latter if this turns out not to be the case.

Sorry for being so late anyway,

Melbourne Chess club Championship
Round 4 23-03-04

Froelich and Rujevic played a grandmaster draw, both had previous engagements with the card table and blitz clocks respectively. Kristic launched an attack against West who defended and comfortably converted. After a level middle game Levi slowly outplayed Pyke to convert. Beaumont and Hacche was a sharp game with Hacche counter attacking well before Beaumont self combusted in time trouble. Kalisch conducted an excellent attack with the black pieces to overwhelm Stirling, culminating in a Kingside attack that was decisive. Hanks turned up with a broken arm and went home with a broken heart. Talk about soldiering on. Ivanov played the opening poorly, but almost pulled off a miracle in the middlegame before Pecori exposed his king to an irresistible attack. Roberts played beautifully against the talented Dragicevic before missing a sharp win with the piece sacrifice Nc2 after Bg6, he then watched as his chess position skied downhill. Raine converted a pawn advantage in the endgame to grind out a win against Ghobrial. In a sharp encounter Ly won a tense struggle with Voon. Fletcher threw pawns to the wind before becoming temporarily blind to the tactics, whilst Ogada-Osir turned into the technician of Fitzroy.
