I presume you mean the KNOCKOUT rapid play, not the parallel SWISS that KNOCKED-out players cascade down into?
It should be possible to publish the former because we at least know who those players are. You need to contact Janusz and ask. (He does visit the BB but only occasionally)

August Rookies and Queens Cup.

starter

Results of the August Rookies and Queens Cup. are listed at
http://www.boxhillchess.org.au/junior/2004/e0408wrc.htm

The attendance at the event was at near record levels. The organisation of the event is done by the Whitehorse Junior Chess Committee and is run in many divisions. I could attempt to explain the logic here but it would simply reveal I don't know how they do it. :confused:

If you wanted to win the Rookies Cup this month you faced the formidable task to finish ahead of Christopher Wallis and Zhigen Wilson Lin; and you would have needed plenty of rating-points-insurance to protect your RAPID rating (if you care about your RAPID rating).

My favourite result from this event was the sharing of the QUEENS Cup by Elena Galiabovitch and Susan Sheng. :clap:

David Flude seemed to get an encouragement prize for adults. :rolleyes:
Biggles was in attendance and picked up some minor money.

The September ROOKIES Cup had 70 entrants with 15 of those rated over 1700. A good number of adults entered and this will ensure mixing of the rating pools.

The event was run as a fund-raiser for Denis Bourmistrov and Casey Hickman to attend the World Juniors later this year.
Novelties included a door prize at the end of each of the 7 rounds of the ALLEGRO, and a cash prze to any player who could defeat Casey (four did).
Rookies Cup won by Denis Bourmistrov.
Queens Cup shared by Elena Galiabovitch and Vanja Rozenblat.

Some-one had a bright idea towards the end of the Rookies. :thumbsup:
After round 7 we immediately paired an 8th round to be played as a 5_minute lightning. We awarded a board-prize to the winner on a secretly drawn board number. This occupied the players while the organisers sorted out the prizes. Worked a treat; in past events those calculating the prizes have had to contend with the noise level of 70-100 people who have had too much rasberry cordial for the afternoon. This time, the one round of lightning-with-a-mystery-prize-winner occupied the mob and enabled the prize-ceremony to proceed earlier.

Thanks were given by our President to the many volunteers who assisted.

It is scary eclectic how you are in the mainstream of whats happening.


The big news is that the heavies from Chess VICTORIA are going to hold a Committee meeting at our Club-rooms on Friday. Gasp, can you believe our luck...we will have front row seats.

Losing POINTS Lightning

Friday 17 December
Box Hill will run their novelty Losing POINTS Lightning tournament.

Players get a number of points depending on the their rating group
E.g
U700 might get 9 points
U1350 get about 5 points
U2000...around 1.5 points

All players then in the SWISS draw for round 1 of a Lightning.
The losers from round 1 lose 1 point. And if this reduces them to zero then they are eliminated from the tourney.

Usually, players start being eliminated after 5 or 6 rounds. Some players have been known to play 13 lightning games for the evening.

7.45 pm start
Entry fee and visitors fees apply.
Perpetual trophy

i have thought about this tonight about how it might work, perhaps instead of gaining points when you win a game, you lose points when you lose a game or draw by the same amount. As soon as you hit zero, you are out of the tournament.

With the two draws in the final, maybe both players were on 1 point and since they drew two games, they both were on 0 and both eliminated.

We have traditionally run this by awarding points to players as they enter. For examples, sally Yu git 6 points, and Sam Chow got 1.5.
Entries are losed into SP and the end of the any round we look in the cross-table to see if for any player

(Points allocated +Points won) is less than or equal to the round number. If yes, eliminate that player.
We noticed last night this tended to eliminate a few good players very early.


We speculated we should perhaps load the Points_allocated into SP as bonus points and then let SP pair. Might try next year.

You wrote a description.
I responded with "(Points allocated +Points won) is less than or equal to the round number. If yes, eliminate that player. "

The two descriptions are equivalent.
Yours is easier to describe to by-standers (and we had a few last night).
Mine is easier to operate from the cross-table.

Hello starter,

Talking about digging out an old post, advanced search is really a posters friend sometimes ;) .

I have seen a few ppl who have read about this concept and I wouldnt mind giving it a go soon on a trial basis up here.

A couple of questions though based on my testing on sp.

1) How exactly do you enter the results?

2) Do you let sp make the pairings, or are they done manually? If you let sp do the pairings, how so? If you do it manually, same question?

Your question 1) seems so obvious that I suspect I am not understanding it correctly.
We simply enter the players into SP and make an automatic pairing. Being round 1 it doesn't pit close matches obviously. When all matches are decided we simply enter results into the SP pairings/results screen. Now comes a manual step....we look at the cross-table to see if anyone is now on zero points (and as you can appreciate, for the first round this can only be a player who started with 1 LOSING_POINTS_LIGHTNING point and lost his first game). Now let SP make the second round pairings ..etc.

2)Yes...SP makes the pairings. Gets a bit forced towards the end (say round 10) when you might be down to three players who have all played each other already....then you have to intervene and force the pairings in away that the DOP regards as fair.

Feel free to ask more questions.
If you want to see a SP file of a tourney just ask.

It did seem an obvious question, but i wanted to check how it was done cause I wasnt sure from your previous explaination if you put the 1:0 in as a 1pt win for the winner, or you put 1:0 for the player who lost and then compared results. Just wanted to check.


2)Yes...SP makes the pairings. Gets a bit forced towards the end (say round 10) when you might be down to three players who have all played each other already....then you have to intervene and force the pairings in away that the DOP regards as fair. When using sp pairings in this tournament, it seems a bit unfair that the top players are playing against each other and knocking points off each other, same with the lower rated players, but the high and low rated players wont meet until very near the end of the competition. Yes this is good for nice close games ratings wise, but not giving the players who are giving large points an opportunity to take points directly off the players receiving the points start seems a bit unfair.


Feel free to ask more questions. If you want to see a SP file of a tourney just ask.

its ok, thanks anyway. From your explaination, the testing I have been doing is exactly like how you describe, including the forcing of pairings near the end of the tournament.

Something that might be fairer when you get to the stage of no legal pairings. Find the pairings that you can make legally, then put the rest of the names into a hat, bucket etc and then randomly draw them. That might be fairer than a dop call(allegations of bias and all that stuff :eek:) Then have the games played with colours reversed from their first meeting.

I tried this and it gives similiar results as to normal pairings except that the seedings are reversed. Could mean that the 800's get games on board 1 :uhoh:

I also tried pairing players by putting their current bonus points score as their international rating and pairing by ir first, no noticeable difference.



2 If your issue was the last para. > .......our DOPs are scrupulously fair and equal to a randomiser. I wasnt saying they werent fair, it was just a musing about how to make the process even fairer and remove any accusations of bias :eek:

I thought you might have said that my idea might be tried next lpl as another method.
