The Fifth Dubai Juniors Chess Championship for Sheikh Rashid Bin Hamdan Al Maktoum Cup 3 july to 12 July is currently being held in Dubai.

Four Melbourne Juniors are competing:

Sally Yu
Derek Yu
Eugene Schon
Zhigen Wilson Lin

All children have won the first two rounds.

There are 146 players from over 16 countries.

The website is arabfide.com

One different custom in the United Arab Emirates is that all players stop for a 10 minute prayer break. Apparantly this is the only place in the world where this happens. The faithful can attend their prayers while the other children have a quick break and then resume their games.

Zhigen's first round game was one of the select few games written in Bulletin 1.

Congratulations to Zhigen.

The opening ceremony was very impressive with the Sheikh in attendance as well as Ministers and the press. The ceremony was in both Arabic and in English.

Strict FIDE rules are being applied. Games must have an arbiter to sign the score sheet. Mobile phones are not allowed in the tournament hall. It is automatic forfeit. This is stricter than the Aus rules where the mobile phone must just be switched off.

The Dubai Chess and Culture Centre is in the shape of a rook. The playing hall is very large. It is so air conditioned that most players are wearing long pants and a jumper.

Eugene, Derek, Sally and Zhigen all appreciated the free chocolate bar waiting at their table when they arrived yesterday.

according to it website zhigen just drew with the indian Srinath
Narayanan and he is =1st with 4.5/5. apparently that guy is the world under 12

What is the website address - I've tried clicking on the link from the FIDE site, but it says: 'this page cannot be found'.

Thanks for the updates, Kerry.

yes, good performances so far... has anyone noticed that eugene defeated sally in round 5... zhigen defeated an Fm and drawn with another, let's hope he keeps it up... even though derek's score looks good, the highest ranked player he beat was 75(he is ranked 22nd)... the round 6 game will be a key for him...

4 and 3

Go Eugene ...it must be poetic for him as Sally has beaten him the last two times they played.
Seems a lot of money to go around the world to play another of Geoff's kids...they must play each other weekly almost...

who have they played...rating wise I mean...seem to be a lot on 4.5,
4 and 3

derek has been very unfortunate with the draw in my opinion... he is rated 1936, and he has played 4 players that have no rating, and the player he has lost to is 3rd seeded FM rated 2165... he has a rating performance of 1793..

sally is seeded 145 and has no rating... she has played three other players that have no rating and has won them all, she lost to 2035 and eugene.. unfortunately, in round 6 she is paired with player with no rating...

eugene, like derek has played 4 players with no rating and has won those 4, while he lost to 13th seed rated 2051.. eugene is seeded 30, and has a rating performance of 1770, and his rating is 1820... he plays an FM in round 6
zhigen has pretty much played 2 FMs and the others were unrated...

so in round 6 there are some important games to improve rating performance...

This tourney has a wide field but does not seem all that strong. Junior FMs are not common in Australia but one wonders if premium senior tournaments closer to home might not have been better from a cost benefit analysis. Especially considering the number of local derbies that have been played so far. All we need now is for Derek to be paired with Sally, or has that already happened?. :)

Anyway, just a thought. Well done Zhigen, Derek, Sally and Eugene and good luck with the remaining games.

Well it is their own cost, so the players can decide if the benefit is sufficient! I'm with Libby on the benefit of international peer competitions - even when there are equivalent adult comps closer to home.

Yes I was talking about personal CBA not ACF one. From an ACF point of view it is zero cost and helps raise the profile of Australian Chess internationally so it is a no brainer. I wonder if the parents feel it is worthwhile? Klyall?

Bit of a moot point, I should think. Is going to the Maths Olympiad worthwhile? Is going to Europe with a school orchestra worthwhile? It's a great experience if you can afford it, but it's probably not the end of your career if you can't.

I guess you have got to say worthwhile compared to what?

I gave my frame of reference, financial outlay vs chess experience.

The cultural experience and other intangible factors could be a consideration but why not just go on a holiday to your destination of choice?

With reference to the pairings, I can only say that I was extremely upset. No offence to any player intended. But yes, it is a long way to travel, to take time off work, take the children out of school and enormous expense to be paired twice against your own countrymen - when there are 146 players.

I know that there are strict FIDE rules. However, I think arbiters should be given some discretion - esp in instances like when Eugene was paired against Sally - and an alphabetical pairing was used.:doh:

Yes it was very bad luck in such a large field. I was wondering how the size and strength of the field compared with your expectations. Was this as big and strong as you were hoping, or not?


I know that there are strict FIDE rules. However, I think arbiters should be given some discretion - esp in instances like when Eugene was paired against Sally - and an alphabetical pairing was used.:doh:

I guess removing the discretion is advantageous so that players cannot claim they are being victimised by a certain arbiter or the like. Again, it was very bad luck but I guess not much can be done about it.

Good luck to Zhigen, Eugene, Derek and Sally for tomorrow.

Ok very simple thought here, no testing having been done, not aware of the practical implications of this idea.

What you can do is say on the entry forms and at the opening ceremony, that where possible, players from the same federation will not be paired against each other where possible. If another legal pairing exists in the score group, that one will be chosen.

This does not apply to players from UAE.

This way the rules are clear. All that would happen in the pairing program is that some pairings are forbidden. Then the arbiter hits pair and up comes the pairings.

Not fair on the other players. What if aussies were seeded 1 and 2? That would mean they would never play each other!

This is a FIDE-rated event and pairings must be in accordance with FIDE rules. This is the real world!

Remember, I did preface my comments with, very little testing done as it is just an idea.

That being said, I did say: If another legal pairing exists in the score group, that one will be chosen.

This means if your situation arises, then they are paired together.

While I am certainly all for following the rules et al, sometimes other considerations do come into play ie for these type of tournaments, why are the participants travelling half way around the world. I dont think it is to play the same ppl they play at their local club :hand:

One of the big reasons would be to gain international experience and have games against players from other countries.

It's closely fought at the top!

Now the two Indian players have to play each other!

IA Abdul Mahdi is a well known experienced arbiter. I met him when he was in charge of the Asian Cities in Manila a few years ago!

Ok very simple thought here, no testing having been done, not aware of the practical implications of this idea.

What you can do is say on the entry forms and at the opening ceremony, that where possible, players from the same federation will not be paired against each other where possible. If another legal pairing exists in the score group, that one will be chosen.

This does not apply to players from UAE.

This way the rules are clear. All that would happen in the pairing program is that some pairings are forbidden. Then the arbiter hits pair and up comes the pairings.

No, it doesn't work. There are 22 Indians, 18 Qataris and 13 English. You can't forbid same federation pairings in those conditions.

Maybe you could do it if there were very few from each. Even then, I think it is prefereble to stick to normal pairings unless there is a serious possibility of collusion.

Assuming medals are determined on tiebreaks, it looks like Zhigen will win a medal (not gold) if he wins his final game (with the white pieces). His tiebreak score is as good as any apart from Callum.

Round 9 results

Zhigen
drew

Eugene drew another FM

Derek and Sally won their games

The final results are still not available - 11.47 pm as some games were still being played.

Congratulations to all the players.

Particularly difficult circumstances - as the hotel decided to recarptet our floor from 12.00 midnight until 2.30 am and then vacuumed at 6.15 am this morning - so players on floor four - mainly the English and Eugene had minimal sleep. This can be seen in Callum's loss on Board one - he was exhausted this evening. Sally, Derek and Zhigen were on floor 3 - and did not have to contend with major sleep deprivation.

He certainly prepares the kids for each round. I have discovered the hard way that he checks out games played by the kids opponents and shows them how to prepare.

It is great to see that a coach travelled to Dubai.

Did Geoff pay for his own airfare/ accomodation or was it paid/ subsidised by his students?

of course they paid for him....
What worries me is that some kids went there not to experience the culture of a country or even to interact with chesskids form a diverse community but only to swat to win...these kids are only young...what is going on?
What messages are these coaches giving these kids..Is this something that should be encouraged...?
Please I would like to hear the opinion of you all

well, the main point of them going all that way and spending a lot of money was to play some good competitive chess so therefore they have to take the tournament seriously meaning they have to prepare for their games and chess should be number one priority.. as far as doing other things besides chess is concerned, it just depends on the individual. kids should be encouraged to interact with other chess kids from other countries and do other things besides chess but you can't really force them if they don't want to...and i am sure that kids didn't spend 24/7 focusing on chess, but that they did some other things...

I would highly suspect that some of the sightseeing etc would be done before or after the tournament. Like spending a couple of extra days before coming home.

I haven't posted about the non chess activities as was unaware anyone was interested. The children and adults all ate in the restaurant at the hotel and certainly got to know children from other countries.

Some of the English players played Risk with Derek, Sally, Eugene and Zhigen as well as came swimming with us. (The Az players also joined in the pool games.)

The English invited us on all of their excursions - the best was the trip to the sand dunes in four wheel drives and sliding down the sides of the sand dunes. Then there were camel rides, the opportunity to get dressed up in traditional costume, have henna painted on your arm with a traditional motif, watch and eventually join in with the belly dancing.)

Derek and Sally also went to the water slide park with the English which they really enjoyed.

We followed the German player's advice and went to visit the old town in Dubai, visiting the Museum which gave an excellent outline of the history of the area, we visited the Gold and Spice Souks as well as crossing the River on an old fashioned abra (boat).

The rest day and time after the tournament was used to extend knowledge of Dubai as well as enjoying themselves.

A previous post noted that the Aussies played against the English and the UAE in a friendly tournament. There was plenty of time for socialisation before and after the tournament.
