AUCKLAND B GRADE INTERCLUB FINAL ROUND

An exciting time for Papatoetoe Chess Club.

We beat Howick- Pakuranga 4-2 and won the cup for the first time in its 22 year existence. Unfortunately for Howick they had two boards default so we had really won before we started however it was pleasing to get another win and two draws to ensure we also won all three matches.

Thanks to all who took part and scored vital points –

Blitz Tournament

We had a fun night with 14 members turning up for the blitz.

This tournament is run over two nights and the total points will determine the winner. On this first night John Worn blitzed the field (excuse the pun!!). John won all his games to be on 13 points and he is followed by Katrine McCarthy and Temu Maroroa both on 10 points and then comes Aiken Eliu on 8.5 points.

 

 

BLITZ TOURNAMENT 29/10/2014

Next Wednesday we will be starting the blitz tournament (5/5).

It is very important you turn up before 7.30pm or ring if you are going to be late. The reason is that once the players are set there is a system where players move around in a circle and all play all. If you arrive late we will be unable to slot you in.

If you ring to let us know that you are late then we can reserve a slot for you. We still have to get playing as early as possible so you will have to default the first game(s) until you arrive.

It can be a fun evening with most people not taking it too seriously – anything can happen in these games.

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE.

 

MOST IMPROVED PLAYER OF THE YEAR

With the club champs finished and only blitz and rapid play tournaments to go I can now announce the most improved player this year.

Congratulations to Vialli Eliu who just pipped his brother Aiken. Although Vialli was involved a little with the senior club last year, him and his brother started playing seriously this year at the senior level. Vialli took on many seasoned seniors and won, increasing his rating 193 points. Still with a lower rating if Vialli and Aiken continue their improvement they will be contenders next year as well!!!

*****WELL DONE VIALLI ELIU*****

CLUB CHAMPS ROUND 10 (FINAL ROUND)

A GRADE

Before the final round Katrine and Saif played their round 8 game. Katrine won causing Saif’s first loss of the tournament but he still maintained 1/2 lead into the final round.

In the final round the top half are paired with the bottom half. There were no upsets with all three taking a full point so Saif takes the tournament by a half point – congratulations Saif.

B & C GRADE

I was unable to report on round 9 last week as I did not have the results however there was no change in the leaders of both grades over the final two rounds. Both Sivakumar and Harry won the B and C grades respectively and quite comfortably. Siva with an impressive 8.5/10 and Harry with 7/10.

It is interesting and exciting that all three grade winners are new to the club this year.

B & C GRADE

Unfortunately this round was rather spoilt by many people not turning up and not letting the club captain know. We had three people win by default so they did not get a game. If we had know, these people would have been paired with each other. There was only two games that played out –

Harry Bong v Pauline Thomas 1-0
John McRae v Paul Postma 1-0

In the B Grade Siva again gets the lead on his own (he got a win by default). Ronnie Shaddick is second (one of the defaulters) and Stefan Brzozowski moves into third courteously of a default.

The C grade is being lead still by Harry with a 2 point advantage over Aiken and Gavin in second equal.
