After the long weekend, we have received results from Tasmanian Open and NSW Open/Minor. But we are still awaiting SP files from Vic Open and Adelaide Weekender.

Can anybody contact the DOP's to determine when the SP files will be sent?

Is anyone else unable to get gp results, information to come up? I am getting a message saying Directory listing denied from both the acf webpage and from chessaustralia.

AUSTRALIAN CHESS FEDERATION - PRESS RELEASE

2006 MYER TAN AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX

Please find below the 2006 Myer Tan Australian Chess Grand Prix leader boards as at the half way stage, 30 June 2006.

It would be appreciated if the information in these leader boards could be disseminated as widely as possible throughout Australia and overseas.

I guess three successes in a row it is not a surprise, but a well deserved result!

hey why didnt I get any points for the July Weekender, I played one game in the Australia Day Weekender, 2004, which still contributed to points (not SCORING mind you). I paid my entry, and I did SCORE, well only 0.5 because i only played 2 games (and due to feeling ill with a headache I didnt play the rest) I should still get ponits as I DID PLAY in the July weeknder at Parramatta. Honestly I could have played the rest of my games and still scored 0.5. :clap:

The points have not been allocated yet so you'll have to wait but maybe theres will be an issue over whether you may be given any points because you were an unapproved withdrawal from the July weekender? :hmm:

Good luck to you if you do because those points will put you on top of the Girls division in the GP. :D

I noticed my points from the Parramatta tournament that were published have now been taken away and no reason for this has been given.

As I already said in an earlier post (which no one from the organisers of the grand prix have given a response to), I did paid my entry fee and play in the tournament. I think it is absolutely disgusting that no one has the decency to provide an explanation for this.

I also noticed that nothing in the rules seem to state about finishing a tournament (And I DID play)

Furthermore, looking at other results I nocticed Charmian Zhang was given grand prix points with not playing every game in the tournament (getting a score of 2/7, 1 point being given through byes. At least my half a point was earned towards the grand prix, well as it so seemed previously) I guess its ok to rock up late as you feel like it, altough it seems to be a different story with leaving early.

have you written to the grand prix director about your concerns, or written to your state delegate.

The ACF has instructed me not to award GP points to Vaness Reid at Parramatta. Apparently she was an unauthorised withdrawal (did not turn up for round 3 onwards without notifying the arbiter).

Appeals must go to ACF via your State officials.

Vaness, please be aware that I read this BB only from time to time (and not when I am out of the office or overseas!)

Brian_Jones

Only the top players at Launceston have been scored so far in the GP.

The full results will be delayed as SP98 files are not carrying ACF ids.

Yes, there are still DOPs out there who don't know how to properly import players into Swissperfect!

Been thinking about the three tournaments that are coming up this weekend- Elwood, Gosford and Burnie.

All three tournaments are class 1, but there is a massive difference in the strength of the players.

If a person is wanting to earn gp points, why would they go to Elwood, when the potential to earn the same points is alot easier at Burnie?

Isnt this a flaw in the current system and should be addressed for next year's gp?

Tournament organisers have their own budgets and objectives.

Players select events based on a wide range of factors.

Not all tournaments have to be in the Grand Prix.

But I think Elwood might be Class 4 or 5 in 2007! :)

Then there could be more inter-state entries.

Isnt this a flaw in the current system and should be addressed for next year's gp?

People want to earn GP points as a means to an end: they mean $$$.

This means that while weaker class 1s might be seen as easy pickings, they are typically held in areas relatively remote from the major centres, and hence with added costs that might discourage GP pointshunters from going looking for easy scalps.

If strongish players do want to travel to remoter areas and compete in "weaker" tournaments to grab more GP points then more power to them, this is exactly the sort of thing the GP should encourage - as such I see no need to change the system - although a really strong event like Elwood should ideally be much higher than class 1.

(As for Burnie, not modesty, but a very strange tournament condition previously mentioned in passing on the board, currently prevents me from saying anything about it!)

C'mon Kevin, let's hear it. After all, who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

The big bad wolf might try banning me from tournaments it runs if I don't abide by the condition I have signed, and I wouldn't want to give the big bad wolf that sort of attempt at satisfaction. :D

I just got legal advice about the tournament condition in question - which does indicate that I can say some things about the tournament without breaching the condition of entry (which I can't quote here since it was probably drafted by a person currently banned from this site). Also there is nothing to stop me PMing people, or emailing, but if I email and cc: to others I become a naughty boy. I have now written to the BCC requesting certain permissions concerning public comment about the event. :hmm:

For confidentiality reasons I won't be publicly going into what I assume to be the background, unless I need to do so to refute inaccurate assertions by anyone else.

The event got a mention in the ACF newsletter so I've dropped my request for permission to provide a limited degree of reporting on it (where this would broaden coverage or add extra detail); it was no longer worth the potential trouble.

I cannot quote it on the board because I strongly suspect it was written by a member who is currently banned from the board, and therefore cannot be quoted on the board.

The TCA never agreed to it.

The entry form was simply released with that condition on it; the TCA was not consulted about the condition.

Technically under the rules of this board people shouldn't be linking or quasi-linking to anything written by Mr Donnelly, but since he was banned over his attacks on me and I don't care in this case I doubt it will be a problem.

I've submitted a response - now that AR has given it a header of its own I suggest anyone interested read it there.

I'd be fascinated to know whether Phil's response is really officially on behalf of the BCC in that Club's view. Strongly suspecting not.
