We're getting off course here. What TCN is talking about is the Fisher's Ghost Cup (which they should probably rename Fischer's Ghost, anyway). It probably deserves its own thread, perhaps a little nearer to the start date. This thread is about the Rooty Hill Open commencing on Monday week -- and that's August 15th. Everybody's welcome -- even TCN!

Yea, Sir Bergil, can do. I received the Round 1 results this morning and will need to reorganise them into a workable table. It'll go up sometime today. One interesting result was that the oldest player in the field, Ken MacGillivray (1373), torpedoed Jeff Cabillin (1967). Not a bad upset.

There's an interesting piece sacrifice on move 14 that looked unsound but from then on he never lost the initiative.

Here's an interesting mate from last night's Round 2. Peter Watts was playing white against Bergil, who was threatening mate on the move. Peter's bishop got there first. (Sorry, I can't give you the whole game -- there was an error in the score sheet.)

Congrats, the first time I ever played Lloyd was in a public exhibition game in Bass Hill Plaza (whatever) and I was 2 pieces up and lost concentration as I was doing a narration of the game to the crowd and lost the game. I did not know who he was then, if otherwise I would have concentrated and beat him.

Trent, mate, honesty ain't always the best policy. You shoulda taken credit for Lloyd the Former rather than Lloyd the Latter. (Even so, I'll bet that's the first time he's been called "the younger" for a decade or three. I'm sure he'll appreciate it.)

I'll post your game on the Rooty Hill site now you've given us a copy.

Nobody submitted any games this week so the only one I have is my draw with Henry Rara. I had white. (Fritz tells me I shoulda played 28 Rc6+ Bxc6, 29 Nxf7+ winning a pawn ... but if I was as good as Fritz I'd probably have an IM after my name...)

After five rounds Tony Bouchaaya and Lee Jones share the lead on 4.5 with Brian Jones and Leo Tenorio half a point back on 4.

The site has now been updated: http://www.rootyhillchess.org/RHopen05.html

Leo Tenorio must never have have heard Savielly Tartakover's edict about preferring to sacrifice his opponent's pieces, because when he takes the board you can be fairly sure he's going to be offering freebies.

In last night's game against Jim Holland (the reigning Rooty Hill Open champion) he sacrificed two pieces and swarmed all over Jim's king.

Here's the game.

I left a little early last night but Lee Jones had a comfortable lead over Tony Bouchaaya (if anybody can ever be comfortable against Tony!) and probably won. This would leave him the sole leader on 5.5/6 with only one round to play.

The final round will be next Monday (26th) with the Presentation and Lightning to be played the following Monday (October 3rd).

Below is a particularly interesting game from last night's play. Hans Muller had white, Joe Ymalay was black.

We play from 7.00 pm but the tournament won't kick off till 7.30.
Unfortunately it clashes with the final session of the Ryde-Eastwood Open (or they clash with us!)
And yes, TCN, we do play on public hols. The only Monday we miss this year will be Boxing Day.
