When organising a comp I now make a point of checking if there are going to be railworks. Otherwise players can become de-railed.

If it goes on too late for you, you might be able to ask the dop for a half point bye for round 4.....

would say quite a few people expected to play!
fairfield is a very active club so hopefully few locals will play.

also, the rsl club is a good venue in general
(food their was pretty good last time i went).
easy to get to (few stop past parra going south on purple line)

There are no divisions. Only Rating division prizes. Everyone is in the one big tournament.

yes folks its true, Fairfield is increasing the total prize money on offer for the Winter Cup to $3,200. Yes all you quick math students, we are adding another $500 to the pot.

Here is the new prize list

1st $650 + trophy, 2nd $400, 3rd $300, 4th $150, 5th $90
Plus 4 other divisional groups
1st $150, 2nd $120, 3rd $100
Best Junior $60 Best Fairfield Chess Club member $70

There are so many prizes, you'd have to play as poorly as I do not to get one.

Is Fairfield fielding a team in the grades? I remember when I played they used to give us $20 pocket money and paid for our weekender entry fees. Really looked after us they did. Is this still the case?

Yes we have a 1600 and 1400 in Sydney Grades and had an open and 1500 in Western Suburbs chess premiership. The 1500's won their comp.

We have stop paying for weekenders, but we have a couple of Picnic blitz tournaments a year with free prize money, food and drink including beer and a christmas party.

REGISTRATIONS
Registrations will be taken between 9.15 and 9.45 am.
Any registrations after 9.45 will incur a $10 late fee.
The first round is scheduled to start at 10.15 am.

Yeah I read that, it gave me the impression they'll see how they're going on the day rather than planning the schedule in advance too much. Charles told me the last round on the first day would probably start approximately 6pm, that was the main thing I'm trying to work out-how late I could be going home potentially. But that is always subject to the time the 1st round actually gets going of course.

... it gave me the impression they'll see how they're going on the day rather than planning the schedule in advance too much.

Having played a few dozen weekenders, the experience we always have is that games start ASAP and time is not deliberately waisted. As such, 4 rounds of 60min+10sec will take a max of
4 x 2(1hr + ~30x10sec) +
3 x 15min breaks
= 9hrs 25min ~=9.5 hours

Start at 10:30 am and the latest finish would be 8:00 pm.

As I said weekenders are all about the same.

Given Sales performance in the Uni Open (losing to Zhao and Sandler, draw to Chadwick) I would say that the shorter time control/multiple games per day does not favour him. I would think that if the there is a fairly strong field then he would not be favourite. I understand Sales is planning to play the ANU Open as well.

Sales was a piece behind against Bolens but managed to win on time, rook against Bishop and Knight. Sales was going for a queen.

George Xie and Raymond Song drew in spite of Song's rook against Xie's bishop.

In the middle of game the ode was brought on with lights turned off and trumpets blaring. Clocks were stopped accordingly.

I suggested to DOP that the clock of person whose move it is should get an extra minute or two to regain concentration but to no avail.

Besides. you just stop the clocks until it's finished.....

But you have not allowed compensation for big break in concentration. Every time I hear the ode I think of close relos went off to the war (esp the hero) - a total break in concentration. Deep thinking is totally destroyed, one may have almost had the move thought out and now forgets where is up to and could need even much more than a minute to compensate.

If the old clocks were used it would take no time at all to adjust the clocks, with digital I do not know.

I do not give you permission to visit my beloved country. Therefore it is clear that you cannot visit. Our culture demands that you have to be invited. And eat dried fish. Shall I send you some in the mail?

What is important if it is possible for them to be adjusted easily to add on a minute or so for one player only in the middle of a game?

Thank you, now we only have to work out the justice of the situation.

When one considers that players were warned that if their mobile phones went off they would forfeit the game (or at least the sign said that, I came in late) imagine how much more distracting the ode is, with the turning off of the lights, trumplets blasting etc etc. and it effects half the hall, i.e., the ones whose move is on.

Maybe Anish beat higher rated players than yourself - it is called "countback".

I wasn't there, so don't know what the prizes were, but as an unrated player, you should not be eligible for a ratings prize - you could have any rating at all. To my mind, more logical would have been an under 1380 prize, which you aren't eligible for.

During the recent Fairfield Winter Cup when play was interrupted by the ode, that is darkness, trumpets blasting etc. I enquired of the DOP if the players on move should maybe get a minute or so extra to reconcentrate. Answer was in the negative.

When brought up here TCN said the adjustments of the clocks was not worth the trouble. And I queried if digital clocks could be adjusted accordingly.

All this is unnecessary.

On resumption of play, before the re-starting of the clocks the DOP just announces that play has resumed without starting clocks, then after say 2 minutes tells the players to start clocks. No time adjustment is necessary.

keep in mind that the interruption was inevitable..

Of course, and it will happen many times in the future which is why we should cater for it by method of my previous post, with no adjustments of clocks necessary.

I would hate to be trying to calculate knight moves 6-8 moves ahead when interrupted by the longish ode, which as stated previously has personal significance to me.

Just out of interest I wonder what FIDE rules would say on this?

Hello, everyone,
In the 2004 Ballarat Begonia, during the second round, which was on the Saturday evening, the lights in the venue failed, came back on, failed again and then came back on, and I think they stayed on then. The arbiter, Kevin Perrin, who does an excellent job as an aside, was quick to get the clocks stopped after the lights failed the first time.

Play resumed when the lights went back on, and then had to be stopped again after the second light failure.

It was a very unsettling experience, and in all truth, although it was not the only factor, I don't tend to lose too many games a piece for pawn up in general, as I did here.

It is hard to see an absolute solution to this one, and a very light reading of the copy of the Chess Organiser's Handbook, 2nd edition, I have here does not bring up an immediately pertinent entry, but I will look more later.

Certainly, the conduct of a game is supposed to be merely the moves played across the board, and the result that arrives at, but at times other things can impede the regular flow of play... :hmm:

Take care and God Bless, Macavity,

Oh and AR, If you want to hear a comment about the poaching, PM me and I'll see what I can come up with..

What you do then Peter is to VISUALISE the position ... so in fact while the ode is going on, you pause briefly to remember the fallen and then turn your mind back to the calculation ... and all this while your clock is stopped! So in fact, you get an EXTRA minute or two thinking time ... :hmm:

That is the best I can remember coming from you. You are not a lawyer are you?

I would not mind if they left the lights on so could ACTUALLY VISUALISE out of the corner of my eye. I admit my visualising is not too good, but can calculate up to 8 moves ahead sometimes in a classic game.

But chess is not a game (according to the rules) to be played under onerous conidtions. And what does the rule book say anyway, I looked but cannot find my yellow 1977 USA edition?

No Peter, I'm not a lawyer.

Why is this a matter of concern for you? Its one minute in a game of chess ... get over it!

Maybe so, but there are about a hundred rules on how a person cannot be distracted in the game, and unfairly only one player, whose move is on, cops it predominantly during the ode, and whilst there is such a simple correction like I have proposed earlier why not try it a few times.

The more delay I encounter in finding out the FIDE rules on it the more suspicious I become.

By the way I was greatly amused by your previous post.

I hope this complaint does not drive you to another post about people complaining!
