2004 Caloundra Open Report

by DOP Charles Zworestine

It was nice, at the tail end of my Queensland holiday, to see so many juniors playing… Nearly half (46) out of a field of 94 players were under the age of 18. Of course, this means more fun: the juniors always seem to enjoy their chess more! It also meant a very happy set of organisers, as the overall numbers were about a dozen more than last year. Who knows – perhaps next year we might even crack 100…

Top seeded GM Ian Rogers was always going to find IMs Smerdon and Solomon his main rivals – but in such a large field, it took a while for them to get to him… Absolutely no upsets in Round 1, so I can go straight to Round 2 – where suddenly there were upsets galore! Fourth seed Andrew Meldrum constructed a fortress and drew in a time scramble (time controls were 60 minutes, plus ten seconds per move at the end: Bronstein) against visiting Victorian Stephen Taylor – with bishop, knight and six pawns against queen and five pawns! Rob Hochstadt’s knight and outside passed pawn upset seventh seed Nik Stawski’s bishop, to share this round’s best upset prize with Tam Goh (who beat Melba Horwood). Other upset wins were scored by Doug Powell over Toshi Kimura, and Andrew Barker against George Flitcroft-Smith; and upset draws were between Alex Jule and newly crowned Queensland Junior Champion Phachara Wongwichit, and Derrick Jeffries and Russell Murray.

No special treatment in Round 3, as Ian Rogers defeated wife Cathy. Stephen Solomon won a knight and pawn ending against John Alkin, Smurf won quickly, but Terry Krause held John Myers to a draw. Highlights of this round were Sebastian Jule’s upset prize win over David Waterhouse and Doug Powell’s upset rook and pawn endgame win over Jack Pintarich.

Lowlight was my first ever mobile phone forfeiture. Potential offenders take note…

Fatigue seemed to set in during Round 4 – four games does make it a long day, after all – but the top players handled it better! Rogers ground down Casey Barnard in the last game to finish, while Smurf seemed to be worse in his ending against Ben Lazarus, but saw more and ended up winning it. Solo and Jacob Edwards won to join them on 4/4, while Justin Pengelley got to 3½ after his win over local Terry Krause. Alex Jule joined him there by winning the best upset prize for her win over John Myers (nearly a 500 point rating gap there!). Phachara Wongwichit scored a solid upset draw with Andrew Meldrum to join a heap of players on 3/4.

So Smurf was paired with Rogers in the morning round again, just as in the Gold Coast Open! Sadly for David, the result was identical: a bad French as Black resulted in an inferior ending, which Ian won with GM technique. Solo took a while but ground down Edwards, while Justin Pengelley beat Alex Jule in a queen and rook ending to get to 4½. Most other Round 5 results went according to seeding. Best upset prize was shared by Anthony Solomon (for his win over Stan Long Hong) and Elliot Richards (who beat Anthony’s brother Michael!).

Stephen Solomon seemed to have a good game against Ian Rogers in Round 6, after the latter sacrificed the exchange; but Ian had good activity for it, won it back and ended up winning (see game below). Many upsets at the top this round, as local Otto Mehltreter won the upset prize for his win over Andrew Meldrum, and Toshi Kimura beat Nik Stawski. Ben Lazarus drew an interesting ending with Tony Weller after his king, two rooks and pawns could not escape the enemy queen’s checks. Smurf beat Justin Pengelley and Phachara Wongwichit defeated Cathy Rogers to join a group of 6 players on 5/6 vying for second place. (The others were Solo, Otto, Toshi and Jacob Edwards).

Jacob Edwards played an excellent last round game against Ian Rogers, who admitted that their minor piece ending should have been drawn; but the GM prevailed eventually in Jacob’s time pressure. Phachara Wongwichit drew with Stephen Solomon in a rook and pawn ending a pawn up which he maybe could have won. Smurf won his last round game to share second with Toshi Kimura, who upset Justin Pengelley. Casey Barnard also won to get to 5½ and share the junior prize with Phachara, while Alex Jule and Cathy Rogers got to 4½ to share the prize for best female. Significant final round upsets were scored by Ric Kaspar over Nik Stawski, Michael Finch over Mike Canfell, Alex Jule over Terry Krause and Spencer Richards’ upset prize win over John Potts.

It looks like the exchange sac was strong for practical purposes - one substantial error (22.Be4) and Black got on top and stayed there. It looks like he was doing OK in any case. 34.Bf3 accelerates the end but by this stage it is over anyway.

Won't it just appear as a loss, not a forfeit? Or does SP now have a special code to identify a player phoned out?

It just looked to me that White got into a real mess with his king, easy to do in the Sveshnikov.

Got any more games where that one came from?

13. f4 looked pretty ambitious. 13. g3 has been played in some top GM games and seems safer.

In the Solomon-Rogers opening line, 13.f4 is considered by theory to lead to a forced draw after 16...Qb4 17.fxe6 Qxf4+ 18.Ke2 Nd4+ with perpetual.
16...exf4 seems like an (inadvertent) improvement - I just couldn't remember the line properly and had to improvise.
18.Be4 (instead of 18.Qxg4) was critical, but I thought during the game that Black was still better after 18...Ne5 19.Bxa8 Qd2 20.fxe6 f3 21.Bxf3 Qf4. Of course this might be simply refuted - I haven't yet checked it properly.

Ian, on move 19, would Qe2 have been an improvement?

19.Qe2+ Kd7 20.Rg1 Re8 looks to me even worse for White than the game.
