Depending on numbers in each streamed group further rounds may be held the following Sunday 19th May. If anyone cannot be available on these dates please inform Allan immediately as alternative times may be arranged e g on Monday and Wednesday nights in the following week. Games will be rated so will be played under strict tournament conditions. Groups will be finalised when all entries are received. If you have not advised that you want to play in the championship, advice must be received by the Secretary before next Wednesday.

Tie Break Systems

Ever wondered what those terms mean on Swiss Perfect printouts eg M-Buch, Buch, Progr ?

Tie-Breaks are used to rank players within point groups. In other words to break ties between players on the same score. The following systems are most commonly used in Swiss tournaments and are supported by Swiss Perfect:

1. Buchholz

This is the sum of opponents' scores. The idea is that the same score is more valuable if achieved against players with better performances in a given tournament.

Looks like an ideal tie-breaking method and has been used since the Swiss system was invented.

However it has some weaknesses which are addressed by other methods (see Median-Buchholz, Progress below).

2. Median-Buchholz

Same as above but after leaving out the highest and the lowest scoring opponents. Swiss Perfect allows configurable number of highest and lowest scoring opponents to be left out (0,1 or 2)

Its idea is to eliminate distortions in Buchholz values caused by taking into account games against run-away winners and bottom placed players.

3. Progress

Calculated by adding points from a progress table eg if your scores were: Win, Loss, Win Draw then your progressive scores are 1, 1, 2, 2.5 and your Progress tie-break value is 6.5

This is an attempt to put a higher value on scores which were achieved by scoring better in the initial rounds than by finishing from behind. It is common knowledge that the latter is usually much easier to achieve.

The problem is that the order of the Progress tie-breaks is known before the last round (last round scores will change the actual value but not the order within a point group). This may encourage some undesirable tournament "tactics" in the last round.

Nightly Fees

At the last Committee Meeting, it was decided to give players the following option for payment of nightly fees from 1 July 2013:-

A yearly payment of $120 to cover playing on Wednesday nights for a full year.

A yearly payment of $150 to cover playing on Monday and Wednesday nights for a full year.

This is a saving for regular players.

Members can still pay nightly if they wish.

As a special promotion no playing fees will be payable on Monday nights until 30 June!!

Weekly Club Newsletter

Club members receive the Newsletter weekly. Non members receive the newsletter periodically. If you are not a club member but would like the newsletter weekly, please advise the Secretary.

Chess Etiquette/Chess Rules

If any member has any queries about chess etiquette or chess rules, please email me and I shall try to answer it for you. Last newsletter I mentioned about the positioning of the boards.

What if you were playing a game with fifteen minutes on the clock and ended up in a king and queen against a king and queen ending, or a rook and king against a rook and king. Player A has 20 seconds left on the clock and Player B has three minutes left on the clock.

Player A stops the clock and asks the Arbiter to declare the game a draw. I think the arbiter would grant the request and tell the players the game is a draw.

A look at Section 10(2) of the Laws of Chess would be beneficial. Also how does one interpret the two words "normal means?"

However if you were playing with one hour on the clock and ten second increments, it would probably be a different story!! The fifty move rule would probably apply unless one of the players made a boo boo.

Club Ratings

The club ratings as at March 2013 have now been completed. CAQ and QJ ratings have been used as a guide. If there are no CAQ ratings or QJ ratings available, a best judgment has been made.

If you disagree with the rating allocated then all you have to do is to play a higher rated player and win against that player two times running. Clocks must be used with at least 20 minutes on each clock. You will then be allocated a rating similar to the player you defeated two times running. I hope you all think that is fair!!!

Great Chess Learning Sites; If you want a great site to improve your chess go to and click on the item how to get to 1900.

Adults and Children can benefit by using the site.

Also is a good site for children (and maybe adults also!!)

WBN Gardiner Chess School Team Championships at Walkervale

The first round of these team championships was held on Monday 25 March. In view of the recent flood problems in Bundaberg, Gardiner Chess gave free entry to competitors!! This was a great bonus for all competitors.

Seventy children competed in this tournament and check and checkmate were two words heard throughout the day many times.

Twenty teams competed but not all teams had four participants. Teams came from both the Primary and Secondary schools in Bundaberg with teams also coming from Moore Park and Goodwood.

Top team of the day was Norville 1 who gained 23 points on the day. They were closely followed by their rivals Walkervale 1 who gained 21 points with Kepnock SHS 1 in third place with 20 points.

Top player of the day was up and coming Junior Player Bryce Rosser with 7.5 points out of 8. He was closely followed by Branyon Apel with 7 points out of 8 and Jack Betts with 6.5 points out of 8.

A special mention should be made of the great effort of young Craig Hawker who is in Grade 1 at Goodwood. He gained 4.5 points out of 8 and came 22 nd out of the 70 competitors. He will be one to watch in the future!!

Bundaberg Chess Club Secretary Allan Menham who was in attendance said there were many close games. This augurs well for chess in Bundaberg. Most schools in Bundaberg have active chess clubs.

The Chess Club's DGT Board was used at the Tournament. This enabled the games on Board One to be projected onto a large white screen on the stage area and people in the room could follow the games on Board 1.

22 May will be the second round and 6 August will be the third round, with the State Finals in Brisbane on 19/20 October.

Three Monthly Club Dinner; It has been decided to hold the Dinner at John's Chinese Restaurant Elliott Heads Road on Friday 24 May.

Children's Tournament on Sunday 24 March

Seventeen children competed in this tournament. The winners were Timothy Harris first with nine and a half points, second was up and coming Junior Player Bryce Rosser with eight points and third was Patrick Harris with eight points.

In the under 525 division, first was up and coming Junior Player Reece Buckholz with five points, second was Logan Marcus with four and a half points and third was Nicholas Whitelum with four points.

Some of the players played in the first round of the Wide Bay North Teams Championships on Monday 25 March at Walkervale State School.

Two of the players were playing in their first Sunday Tournament, and gained valuable experience.

There were a few upsets on the day. Alan Sunil had a draw with Isaac Nasso, Bryce Rosser defeated Patrick Harris, Jonothan Gillard had a draw with Timothy Harris, and Alex Buckholz won a game against Hayden Cooper.

A special mention must be made of Craig Hawker, the most Junior player in the tournament who won two games.

The children are improving month by month and many of them are members of their school chess clubs. Many of the school chess clubs are coached by volunteers of the Bundaberg Chess Club Inc

Future Children's Tournaments on Sundays in 2013: 28 April, 26 May, (other dates in due course); Venue for the children's tournaments is the U3A rooms, 80a Woongarra Street. Registration by 8.50 am. First game to commence at 9 am. Nine or ten round swiss depending on the number of entrants. $8 playing fee. Cash prizes and voucher lucky draws!!

There will be the usual GP for 2013 for the children with $160 total prize money. The scoring will be a bit different this year. Just for competing, children will receive three points each Sunday!! Also if a child wins against a higher rated player they will receive one and a half points instead of one point!! If the rating difference is more than 200 then they will get two points. This is to make things a bit more interesting!!! QJ ratings will be used where possible.

Dates for One Dayers in Bundaberg in 2013 for both adults and children: 18 May, 23 November (venue the U3A club rooms); A one dayer for children will be held on Thursday 11 April, the last Thursday of the school holidays, at the U3A rooms. $8 playing fee. Nine or ten round swiss depending on the number of entrants. Registration by 8.50 am. First game at 9 am.

The Queensland Open will be held in Bundaberg on the weekend of 17/18 August. This is one of the premier chess events in Queensland. We will have a strong contingent of some of the top players from Brisbane.

The Gladstone two dayer will be held on 27/28 July. This will be good practice for the Queensland Open, so there will be many opportunities in 2013 for people to test their chess skills!!

School Tutoring; Goodwood, Moore Park, Gooburrum, and Dallarnil are looking for voluntary chess tutors. No pay but the club can cover fuel expenses!! If you are interested please contact the Secretary. Goodwood School and Moore Park School have teams in local tournaments at times.

Gary teaches at St Patricks.

We are having discussions with Gooburrum at present.

Junior Ratings: The Club has decided that the results of all Junior Tournaments for 2013 will be forwarded to the CAQ for rating purposes on the QJRL rating list for the state.

Table Tennis

The Bundaberg Radiology Pre-Winter Table Tennis goes into the two week Easter break with the leading teams in each division comfortably ahead of their opposition. Competition resumes on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 April. In Division One, Who Knows has a seven point advantage over second-placed NBA who in turn are sixteen points in front of Killers with only three rounds to play before the final. In last week's matches, Who Knows defeated Hot Shots 7-5, Darren Green returning to lead the frontrunners with an unbeaten effort. Ben Freeman and Kyle Luthe each shared a doubles win with Green, Freeman also edging out Susan McDonald 11/9 in the fifth game of their singles and Luthe scoring a tight straight games win over Blake Webster. Best for Hot Shots was Steve Grieving who played strongly in a straight games defeat by Green but won in four games against both Freeman and Luthe.

NBA and Killers drew six-all with most players have some singles success but Killers making a clean sweep of the doubles. For NBA, Ned Freeman defeated Ben McHugh in four games and Dave Delpratt in three but went down to Peter Spratley in four. Brett Fourro lost to Delpratt in five games after winning the first two, then beat Spratley in four games and McHugh in three very close games. Ashley Parrott lost to Spratley in four games, then made an amazing recovery after losing the first two games to McHugh and trailed 10/7 in the third before winning that game 18/16 before running away with the last two games, followed by a four game win over Delpratt.

Mixtures inflicted the first defeat of the season on Hurt Locker 7-5 in their Division One top of the ladder clash. Hayden Green warmed up for his trip this week to compete at the Oceania Hopes Challenge in Melbourne with an 11/8 fifth game win over Cong Tran, three of the other games going to 13/11. Green also beat Robert Atherton 11/9 in a fifth game decider and Travis McDermid in his third marathon of night, both times recovering from 2-1 down. McDermid also lost in five games to Paul Warhurst but won in straight games against Anek Chantarat who had a disappointing night in singles but was involved in Mixtures two doubles wins.

FiiK stayed within striking distance of Mixtures for the vital second spot on the points scoreboard when they defeated TMT 7-5. Tumon Sohibi was at his best, winning his three singles in straight games. Jim Buttling won comfortably against Bruce Downs and Rob Freeman but lost in five games to Matthew Lomas who had earlier also been taken to five games by Nev Newitt.

Deleece McDonald won her three singles, all in four games, and a doubles for Last Resort, while John Jackson and George Haggar added five game wins over Shaina Green and Les Dawson respectively.
