Dear all,
this is copied from the Dandenong email chess circular. I understand that the time control will be 90 minutes + 30 Seconds a move from move one.

I would suggest that if people were interested in this event they could ring Don Maciulaitis on 9791 3541 or email/ pm me, or contact Dandenong chess club through their website, which is at dandychess.org.au

Starting next Wednesday 13th July are the Dandenong Grades Events.
Eight-player round-robin tournaments where the players are grouped by
ratings these have proved very popular in the past. Entries close 7.30pm on
the night.




All the best, Take care, and God Bless, Macavity

And just for fun, here is the report on their lightning championships held last Wednesday:

The Dandenong Lightning Championship 2005 was won by Milenko Lojanica with
8.5 / 9 ahead of Mehmedalija Dizdarevic on 8.

These two were well ahead the others and it was clear with two rounds
remaining that the title would go to one of them.
In an interesting final round Dizdarevic disposed of Amir Mahic very
quickly which meant Milenko had to defeat Richard Voon to claim outright
victory. Voon looked to have a good position and was about 30s ahead on
time. But Voon missed a tactic and spent too long trying to retrieve the
situation, only to lose on time and hand Milenko the title.
Following is the crosstable for the Lightning Championship.

Dandenong Grades Tournaments 2005

52 players entered the Dandenong Grades tournaments this year, making up
five 8-player round robins with the remaining 12-players in a seven round
swiss.
This years event is much stronger than in previous years with much higher
average ratings in each grade. This is evidenced by the fact that last
years winners in A and C-Grade are now playing in a lower grade. Indeed
only one of the players in last years A-Grade event is playing in it this
year, and he only scraped in as the lowest rated player, after his rating
improved over 50-points !! There is also only one player from last years
B-Grade event who held his ground, with all others now in lower grades.

The Premier Grade will be FIDE Rated, and with six of the eight players
having FIDE ratings is a good opportunity for the remaining two to get a
FIDE rating. Ascaro Pecori (2067) is top seed, but with the event having an
average ACF rating of 1968 he will have a lot of tough battles. Zdravko
Lojanica (1885) is the bottom seed, but he is coming off equal first in the
Autumn Open so is in good form.
The first round eventually concluded at about 12.30am when Mehmedalija
Dizdarevic finally overcame Malcolm Pyke. Malcolm had sacrificed a piece
for three pawns that looked too far advanced to be stopped. But
Mehmedalija defended very well and when the smoke cleared his bishop and
pawn were going to win against Malcolm's two remaining pawns. Later
analysis (Fritz) will possibly find ways Malcolm could have won or drawn,
but as both players were playing with only the 30-second increments there
were no doubt mistakes on both sides in what was a very complicated
position. But it made for very good viewing.

A-Grade has Frank Silas (1872) as top seed with his main opposition coming
from former club champion Miralem Campara (1843). But both could only draw
their first round games. Tahir Lushaj (1745) and newcomer Hong Lin (1701)
were the two winners in this groups first round.

B-Grade should be a close event with only 66-points between top seed Eddie
Kocjancic (1601) and bottom seed Bob Parrot (1535). Eddie won the B-Grade
last year but will be challenged this year by Matthew Potter and newcomer
T.G Pramod, who we know nothing about but his win over Don Maciulaitis was
impressive.

C-Grade should also be a hard fought event, Bahri Senturk (1533) is top
seed but lost in round one to Victor Lane (1449). Mirko Kudric (1436) is
the bottom seed but if in form could go close. This is probably the hardest
to pick as anyone in this group is capable of beating anyone else, it will
come down to who is in the best form at the moment.

D-Grade has Daniel Jonas (1416) as top seed but his last tournament result
was very poor after a six month break and Michael Potter (1327) , Craig
Baxter (1272) and Peter Keefe (1341) would all be thinking they are a
chance to win this.

E-Grade is a swiss event due to having twelve players. The two youngsters,
Daniel Potter (1240) and Phillip Drew (1223), both think they should win
this and both won in the first round. But they don't want to get too
overconfident, Geoff Lee (1143) made a welcome return to form with a
dazzling display against Frank Drazzi (1252) and Albert Lamech (1223) were
the other first round winners. And Graham McEachern (1243) has improved a
lot recently to be no pushover.

Dandenong Grades Tournaments 2005

A reminder that the Dandenong Chess Club website can be found at:
www.dandychess.org.au with all the details of the club, 2005 tournaments
and current tournament results and pairings.

The second round of the Grades Event saw the lowest rated player up
against the highest rated player in each of the five round-robin
tournaments.

An indication of how closely contested these tournaments are is that in the
"Premier", "A-Grade" and "B-Grade" the lowest rated player won , with
Zdravko Lojanica, Mendel Armerman and Bob Parrot causing upsets against
Ascaro Pecori, Frank Silas and Eddie Kocjancic respectively. In "C-Grade"
Mirko Kudric held Bahri Senturk to a draw and it was only in "D-Grade" that
the highest rated player was victorious with Daniel Jonas defeating Craig
Baxter. Even in the "E-Grade" Swiss tournament the top seeds were both
beaten.
Both Mendel and Bob have provided their games for the next club newsletter
to show the rest of us how it's done.

The Premier Grade leaders are Mehmedalija Dizdarevic, Richard Voon and
Zdravko Lojanica on 1. But there are two postponed games; Pecori v Machell
and Pyke v Machell to be taken into account. Round 2 saw Milenko Lojanica
win comfortably against Abdulwahab Rashid and although he tried hard
Mehmedalija Dizdarevic could not break through Richard Voons defences and
the game was drawn. But most attention was on the game where Zdravko
Lojanica sacrificed a piece for 3-pawns against Ascaro Pecori. Despite
defending grimly against the well advanced pawns Ascaro had to concede
defeat in the end.

A-Grade saw newcomer Hong Lin as the only player to go to 2-points
following his win over Garry Lycett. Sadedin Redzepagic and Tahir Lushaj
moved to 1 whilst Mendel Armerman got his first point with a very
impressive 21-move win over top seed Frank Silas.

B-Grade has three leaders with T.G.Pramod, Matthew Potter and Bob Parrot
all on 2. Bob had a good win against top seed Eddie Kocjancic, who now has
an important game against Matthew Potter next week to stay in touch.

C-Grade will likely provide an upset winner. The two leaders on 2, Chris
Potter and Victor Lane, are both rated in the bottom four players.
Meanwhile the two top seeds have only a point between them, and play each
other next week.

D-Grade is the only one of the six tournaments in which the top seed is
actually leading, although the second seed is on zero. On 2 is Daniel Jonas
a -point ahead of George Tolpigin. Peter Keefe on 1-point with a postponed
game could catch Daniel.

E-Grade had a draw between the two favorites Daniel Potter and Phillip
Drew, this puts them -point behind Albert Lamech who leads on 2-points.

Take care all and God Bless, Macavity

Macavity, when you next meet that Voon chap ask him if he remembers about 30 years ago in Sydney being attacked by a Ukrainian with a chair and he rushes with a few quick jabs to make him drop it? They were gambling on a game while an Aussie championship was on I think it was.

Hello Everyone,

My apologies for the delay in this posting as my internet connection has been out of action for a few days.

Here is Gary Lycett's report:

The third round of the Grades Tournaments saw Mehmedalija Dizdarevic take
the lead in the Premier event. He is on 2.5 / 3 although with three
postponed games in this group it is hard to tell who is in front at the
moment. Both Don Machell and Malcolm Pyke have two games still to play. Don
made his first appearance since returning from overseas and defeated the in
form Zdravko Lojanica in a very tactical Kings Gambit. Top seed Ascaro
Pecori scored a good win over Milenko Lojanica to be back in the running.

Top seed Frank Silas in A-Grade suffered his second straight loss to be on
0.5 / 3 and almost out of contention. Leading this group are Hong Lin and
Tahir Lushaj on 2.5, on 2 points are Miralem Campara and Sadedin
Redzepagic. None of these four players has yet to have a loss.

B-Grade is so far being dominated by newcomer T.G. Pramod with 3 / 3,
although he has yet to play the favorites, Eddie Kocjancic and Matthew
Potter. Next week he plays Bob Parrot who suffered his first defeat in this
event at the hands of Bob Spiric.

C-Grade will be a very tight competition, no less than 5 players are
leading on 2 / 2, with two draws each only Mirko Kudric and Peter Pispek
are undefeated. If Nick Vitkovic and Anteney Nagendirarajah get back in
form and start knocking off some of the leaders we could be in for a final
round with everyone having a chance of victory.

D-Grade is being led by top seed Daniel Jonas whose win over second seed
John Zamora puts him on 3 / 3 and a full point ahead of Michael Potter and
Andrew Atem. Peter Keefe and Steven Doon still have to play a postponed
game in this event.

E-Grade saw Albert Lamech win over Daniel Potter to be on 3 / 3 and facing
second placed James Kuok next week, whose victory against Philip Drew put
him on 2.5. A win by Albert and he would have a stranglehold on the event.

Following are the Round 3 results and the Round 4 pairings.

Hello everybody,

Here is the email report from Gary Lycett;
Dandenong Grades Tournaments 2005

A reminder that the Dandenong Chess Club website can be found at:
www.dandychess.org.au with all the details of the club, 2005 tournaments
and current tournament results and pairings.

Five of the six tournaments now have clear leaders we pass the halfway
stage of the event.

Premier Grade is still being dominated by Mehmedalija Dizdarevic who moved
to 3.5 / 4 with his exciting win over Ascaro Pecori. In this game both
players had only a few minutes on the clock and Ascaro was pressing for
victory. When Ascaro's a-pawn reached the seventh rank Mehmedalija was
often down to only 5-10 seconds as he moved, but he defended well and
everything seemed to just hold. Ascaro was determined to play for a win but
in the ensuing complications he didn't have enough time to calculate all
the tactics and suddenly found himself two pawns down and lost. Even though
I'm sure Fritz will find a win for Ascaro at some stage, the point
deservedly goes to Mehmedalija, his calmness under pressure has taken him
to a 1.5-point lead over the field. However there are four postponed games
which will bring a few players closer.

A-Grade is being dominated by Tahir Lushaj on 3.5 / 4, his victory over
Sadedin Redzepagic put him 1-point clear of Hong Lin, who lost against
Mendel Armerman, and Miralem Campara, who is too peacefully inclined and
happy with draws. If Tahir defeats Hong in round five he would look to be
the winner.

B-Grade saw T.G. Pramod continue on his merry way to 4 / 4 with a win over
Bob Parrot. He hasn't got it all his own way as Matthew Potter is chasing
him with 3.5. With the next best on 2 points the round six game between the
two leaders is likely to determine who wins this grade.

C-Grade saw two players emerge from the pack of five equal leaders. Chris
Potter defeated Peter Pispek due to an unfortunate oversight on Peter's
part and Ahmet Yilmaz received a similar present from Mirko Kudric. Chris
and Ahmet now lead on 3 / 4, but with Bahri Senturk on 2.5 and three others
on 2 this group is still very much in the balance.

D-Grade is the only tournament with the top seed in front. Daniel Jonas
went to 4 / 4 beating one his major rivals in this tournament in Michael
Potter. He is now 1-point ahead of Andrew Atem and unless Andrew beats
Daniel in round 5 it could be all over.

E-Grade saw Albert Lamech also go to 4 / 4 to be 1.5 points ahead of four
players all trying to catch him. The next round appears to be the only hope
for the others in this tournament, if Albert defeats Phillip Drew he would
appear to have too big a lead to be stopped.

Next week, Wednesday 10th August, will be a simul by Guy West against
anyone who wants to try their luck against him.
Round five of the Grades Tournament is in a fortnight, 17th August.

Following are the Round 4 results and the Round 5 pairings.

Dandenong Grades Tournaments 2005

A reminder that the Dandenong Chess Club website can be found at:
www.dandychess.org.au with all the details of the club, 2005 tournaments
and current tournament results and pairings.

Premier Grade leader Mehmedalija Dizdarevic suffered his first loss but
stayed in front on 3.5 / 5. He is 1-point ahead of Malcolm Pyke, Milenko
Lojanica and Zdravko Lojanica, although Malcolm has one postponed game and
could catch him. Also in the running is Richard Voon who despite being on
1.5 has two postponed games, the postponed game between himself and Malcolm
would appear very important. Also vital will be the postponed game between
Ascaro Pecori and Don Machell, both are on 2 / 4 but whoever wins would be
only 1/2-point behind Mehmedalija. Ascaro has provided good entertainment
in the last few rounds for those kibbitzers willing to stay to the end.
Last night his game against Richard Voon saw Ascaro again playing with only
his 30-second increments while Richard has 20 minutes on the clock. Ascaro
had sacrificed a piece for 4-pawns and was able to combine threats with his
Queen and Rook with pushing a central pawn down the board, each move made
with less than 10-seconds remaining. As the pawn got closer Richard seemed
to miscalculate and his extra bishop was useless once Ascaro finally
queened his pawn.

A-Grade leader Tahir Lushaj drew with Hong Lin to move to 4 / 5 but Miralem
Campara's win over Mendel Armerman took him to 3.5, with Lin and Lycett on
3 Tahir cannot afford to drop a game. Top seed Frank Silas defeated Sadedin
Redzepagic to go to 2.5 but looks to have left his run a bit late, although
if he beats Tahir next round it could get interesting.

B-Grade saw T.G. Pramod become the only player in either of the tournaments
to be 5 / 5, but he only leads by 1/2-point over Matthew Potter with Eddie
Kocjancic third on 3. Next weeks game between T.G. and Matthew should
probably decide the winner of the tournament but if it is drawn T.G. still
has a tough game against Eddie in the final round. Probably the biggest
surprise of this tournament is Henk Scherrenberg being on zero.

C-Grade finally has an outright leader, but only just. Ahmet Yilmaz went to
4 / 5 while Chris Potter could only draw a long game against Bahri Senturk
that he looked to be winning. Chris moves to 3.5 with Bahri, Victor Lane
and Mirko Kudric all on 3. This tournament still looks likely to go down to
the wire.

D-Grade saw top seed and runaway leader Daniel Jonas finally beaten. He
still leads on 4 / 5 but is now tied with his conqueror Andrew Atem who is
also on 4. Behind them is Steven Doon on 3.5 who cleverly escaped with a
perpetual against Michael Potter when he looked lost.

E-Grade saw Albert Lamech also go to 4.5 / 5 to lead by 1-point from James
Kuok and Daniel Potter. Albert also managed an unlikely draw when Phillip
Drew managed to blunder a rook in what was a clearly winning position.

Following are the Round 5 results and the Round 6 pairings.

Hello eveyone; here is Gary Lycett's email report:



Dandenong Grades Tournaments 2005

A reminder that the Dandenong Chess Club website can be found at:
www.dandychess.org.au with all the details of the club, 2005 tournaments
and current tournament results and pairings.

Next Wednesday, 31st August, is the seventh and final round of the Grades
Tournaments, the following week a Rapidplay Tournament starts, running for
three weeks, 7th - 21st September, it is a nine round swiss. There will be
three rounds per night with 30 minutes per player for each game.

The conclusion to the Grades Tournaments should be exciting as none of the
six events have a definite winner going into the last round. Four of the
six tournaments had the outright leader beaten in the penultimate round.
Only "B" and "C" Grade now have individual outright leaders, both named
Potter, but they are only 1/2-point ahead so cannot afford to relax.

Premier Grade still has three postponed games to be played, all of which
could affect the leadership standings, which makes figuring out who is in
front difficult. Mehmedalija Dizdarevic had 4 points after his draw with
Zdravko Lojanica, he leads Malcolm Pyke who is on 3.5 after his fine
victory over Milenko Lojanica. But Malcolm has a postponed game against
Richard Voon which if he wins would give him the lead. Ascaro Pecori joined
Zdravko on 3 points after breaking through Abdulwahab Rashid's defence with
a clever knight sacrifice, but Ascaro with one postponed game could catch
Dizdarevic. The other person in the running is Richard Voon, he moved to
2.5 with his hardworking win over Don Machell. However Richard has two
postponed games and he could hit the front if he wins them both. Obviously
the Voon - Pyke game is very important in who challenges Dizdarevic for
victory.

A-Grade saw leader Tahir Lushaj beaten by top seed Frank Silas. Miralem
Campara could have taken the outright lead but also lost, to Hong Lin.
Tahir is now tied for first with Hong on 4 points. But with Frank Silas,
Miralem Campara and Garry Lycett all on 3.5 there are various combinations
of possible winners. The final round games of Silas - Lin and Lycett -
Lushaj will have a large bearing on the eventual result.

B-Grade had a change of outright leadership as Matthew Potter bamboozled
T.G. Pramod in the opening to win and go to 5.5 points. Matthew now leads
Pramod by 1/2-point and these two are way out in front. But both have tough
last round games, Matthew against Don Maciulaitis and Pramod against Eddie
Kocjancic.

C-Grade also had a change of outright leadership when Ahmet Yilmaz lost to
Nick Vitkovic and was passed by Chris Potter, who refused to accept that
his game against Victor Lane was a draw. Chris just kept moving until
Victor eventually made a slight miscalculation, this took Chris to 4.5 and
the lead over Ahmet and Bahri Senturk who are both on 4. Yilmaz and Senturk
play each other while Chris plays Mirko Kudric.

D-Grade saw both leaders win to go to 5 points. Daniel Jonas and Andrew
Atem now lead Peter Keefe by 1-point, but Daniel plays Peter in the last
round. If Peter wins and Craig Baxter finds some form to defeat Andrew then
this could still be a three-way tie.

E-Grade leader Albert Lamech lost to Graham McEachern and was joined on 4.5
by Daniel Potter. Graham McEachern and Phillip Drew are on 4 points with
two others on 3.5. Daniel plays Graham while Albert plays top seed Milivoj
Savic in the last round.

Following are the Round 6 results, the Round 7 pairings and the standings
in each tournament after Round 6.

Dandenong "Premier" Grade Tournament

The delayed conclusion to the Dandenong "Premier" Grade tournament saw two of the remaining postponed games played last night, with the final two to
be played next Wednesday 14th September. It has all come down to these
games, with three of the four players next week capable of winning the
event.
Last night Ascaro Pecori gave himself a chance of outright victory with his
win over Don Machell. If Ascaro beats Malcolm Pyke he will finish first, or
equal first if Mehmedalija Dizdarevic beats Milenko Lojanica. If Dizdarevic
wins he will come equal first with Pecori if Pecori wins, or equal first
with Pyke if the Pecori v Pyke game is a draw. But both Pecori and
Dizdarevic need to win to be in the running, whilst with a 1/2-point lead
Pyke has the luxury of knowing that a draw would give him at least equal
first, and possibly outright first if Dizdarevic doesn't win.
Given the various possible outcomes the importance of what happened in last
nights other game, Voon v Pyke, was crucial. If Richard Voon had won he
would have gone to 5-points and at least equal first, while Malcolm would
be out of the running. In the half-hour between 11.15pm and 11.45pm Richard
managed to convert what looked like a won game into a loss, (with
considerable help from Malcolm). Richard had two connected passed queenside
pawns advancing down the board which more than made up for the exchange
deficit. Malcolm also had an advanced pawn but rather than keep his pawns
together Richard swapped one of his for Malcolms', this allowed Malcolm to
blockade Richard's remaining pawn and in trying to remove the blockade
Richard allowed Malcolm to win all his kingside pawns and Queen one of his
own. It was a good finish for the spectators as afterwards they were all
able to show Richard what he should have done, but credit must go to
Malcolm for hanging in there with determined defence, and looking for
counterplay where it existed.
If the remaining two games are similar to that one it will be a very
exciting end to the tournament.


Current Standings:
1 Pyke, Malcolm 1988 4.5 / 6
2-4 Dizdarevic, Mehmedalija 1945 4 / 6
Pecori, Ascaro 2067 4 / 6

Dandenong Rapid-Play Tournament

For everybody else it was was the first week of a 3-week rapidplay
tournament.
Three games a night with half an hour per player for a nine round
tournament.
The games should in theory be able to go for an hour but many players seem
to treat these games as blitz, with the result that last nights three
rounds were completed in less than two and a half hours. And this included
doing the pairings etc.

Four players managed to get to 3 / 3, but two of them, Milenko Lojanica and
Mehmedalija Dizdarevic will not be playing in the rapidplay next week so
this leaves Tahir Lushaj and Sadedin Redzepagic as leaders on top board.
With Pyke, Machell and Voon also not playing due to Premier Grade
commitments this is a good opportunity for players to win a tournament.
There are three players, Garry Lycett, Eddie Kocjancic and Bob Parrot all
on 2.5 / 3 with a further thirteen players on 2 / 3.

Rounds 4-6 will be played next week 14th September, following are the
pairings for the 4th round:

1 Sadedin Redzepagic [3] : Tahir Lushaj [3]
2 Garry Lycett 1743 [2.5] : Eddie Kocjancic 1713 [2.5]

Hello everyone, here is the email report from Gary Lycett for these events.

Dandenong Premier Grade Tournament

The Dandenong Premier Grade was finally concluded when the remaining two
postponed games were played last night.
Congratulations to Ascaro Pecori, who after losing two of his first three
games showed why he was top seed by winning his last four against strong
opposition to claim first outright.
Last nights games began strangely when Mehmedalija Dizdarevic agreed an
early, (very early !!), draw with Milenko Lojanica. This guaranteed
Mehmedalija second but put him out of the running for a share of first.
Mehmedalija had led the tournament most of the way and had postponed this
final round game until earlier postponements were completed. He had every
right to do so as it meant he would then know what the tournament situation
was, and whether he should play for a win or not, which made his quick draw
seem odd to most people. This game finished so quickly that both players
were able to continue in the rapidplay tournament being played.
So it all came down to the final game, Malcolm Pyke needed only a draw to
claim first whilst Ascaro had to win. Despite the distraction of the
rapidplay going on both players concentrated hard on the task at hand. I
didn't see a lot of the game but at the end Ascaro was able to force the
win of a piece that was pinned and Malcolm resigned, making Ascaro the
tournament winner.


Postponed Games:

Dandenong Rapidplay Tournament

The Rapidplay continued with rounds four - six being played last night.
Tahir Lushaj conceded a draw to Sadedin Redzepagic in the fourth round but
then defeated Milenko Lojanica and Mehmedalija Dizdarevic in rounds five
and six, to be 5.5 / 6 and outright leader. Despite seeing off the two top
seeds Tahir cannot relax too much as he leads by only half a point from
Zdravko Lojanica and Garry Lycett, with two others on 4.5 and a further
nine players on 4.
The Rapidplay concludes next week, September 21st, with rounds seven - nine
to be played.

Good morning mac

I think you were asking for posts/debate on this DCC thread. So, here is one of my better ones.


First, let me congratulate the winners that you list above. I recognise many of the names in the field as many of these folk travel to other clubs.

And now to the very interesting bit that will get the controversy going >>

The competitive index for the round that Gary has posted above (your post) is calculated at 258.


Incidentally, many of the entries in your SP file do not appear with ratings, but I was able to get ratings for them from the ACF Active players file. (If not, then I excluded the pairing from the C.I. calc.)

Good morning Starter,

and thanks for taking an interest in a non Box hill event.

As this event was a rapid event, and some of the field do not have rapid ratings, I would assume that Gary Lycett uses an estimated rating is his pairings and then takes it out of his email bulletin to avoid any controversy.

This as far as I am aware is quite common practice; if you look in the Melbourne Chess Club Open thread, you will note that a couple of the participants have been assigned provisional, and in all truth non existent, ratings for pairing purposes.

One of them is from Canada, and the others rating was suggested by club members with whom he had played socially prior to the event,

Take care, Stay well, and you know the rest, but as it seems to bother you, I'll just think it really loudly, Macavity

I certainly wasn't paying attention..............RAPID!!!!!!
Bugger
I should have read the entire thread.
Scrap the calculation..........I used the wrong ACF file.


Yes, we often have to use the tactic of creating a provisional rapid rating....especially for the ROOKIES field. We have adopted the convention of a number like 301 or 701 just to remind all the admins that it is an invented rating. Then, at the end of the tourney we use the performance rating in SP to adjust our local master file.

Fore for too

You may regret asking this question. If you are really serious start reading here (http://chesschat.org/showthread.php?t=229&page=1) . But it will jeopardise your entry to the Coffee Lounge.

Short answer
> Low means many games were between players who were close to each other in the ratings; very few junk games. An unknown number of us think low is good in the sense that it players are attracted to low CI events.
