Nic Croad Wins Julian Mazur 2018!

Apologies for not updating round 7!
In that round, Nic Croad drew with Anthony Ker, and Russell Dive beat Ryan Winter, so Nic was still half a point ahead. Having played all the top players, he was tied against Edgar Benitez in the last round and did not have too many problems.
So congratulations Nic! He also confirmed his newly won position as Wellington's top NZCF rated player.

Ryan Winter, having nearly overcome Nic in an earlier round, could also have won against Russell in round 7:



Russell played 38. Qg3?? in this position, which should lose immediately to 38. ...Rxh3!, gaining a piece. However, Ryan missed this, and played 38. ... Qf5??, and after 39. Rxb7 Bxf4 40. exf4 had to resign.

Still, in spite of a couple of unfortunate errors, Ryan played excellent chess overall, and he seems destined to join the ranks of the very best players in the country.

Don't miss Anthony and Russell talking chess strategy at the club this Thursday, and then after that we will be going into the Club Championships. Meanwhile, here are the round 7 and round 8 results, and the final cross table.

2018 Blitz Champions


Just another catch-up post - in July we had the traditional annual Blitz tournament (3 minutes plus 2 second increment per move).
We had enough entrants (32) to have four separate preliminary groups, with the top two players from each group going through to an all-play-all final. This year we didn't have Michael Nyburg, but we did have Brian Nijman, and also Edgar Benitez, who is, incidentally, a bit of a whizz at the faster time controls. These two players made it through to the finals, as did Michael Sole for the first time.

However, the trio of Russell, Anthony and Nic are in a class of their own, and the winner was expected to come from this select group. In their little round robin tournament between the three of them, they each won one and lost one, but because Anthony lost to one of the lesser mortals (Edgar) he slipped a place in the overall standings.

So, congratulations to Russell Dive and Nic Croad, worthy joint winners of the 2018 Club Blitz Championship.

Julian Mazur R6 - Nic Nurses One Point Lead



Only 15 games were played in round 6 of the Julian Mazur memorial, I don't think I have ever seen such a long list of byes (see below). Two rounds to go.
None of the drama of the previous week, Nic defeated Andrew Stone without too many problems. Russell and Anthony were playing each other, but NOT on top table, which is something of a rarity! In this encounter, Russell as Black went back to his Caro-Kann, and eventually won with a nice tactic after he placed immense pressure on Anthony's King.






Elsewhere, Edgar Benitez continued his good form, this time getting a draw with Brian Nijman, Ryan Winter eventually broke down Paul He's resistance, and Lawrence Farrington lost to his second He brother in a row.

Next week Anthony should be getting paired with Nic Croad, which will be interesting.

Julian Mazur R5 - Nic Takes it All


The top three players were all playing lower rated opposition this round, and none of them found it particularly easy. Far and away the nearest to victory was Brian Nijman. Characteristically for a Nijman game, both players used up all their time on the start of the game, leaving the endgame to be played on increment. Brian was totally winning after 35 moves, with a healthy pawn surplus (including two connected passed pawns on the queen side) - from here I will leave it to Nic to take up the story.





So for the top three boards, the top players squeaked through. On board four I blundered away a vital d pawn against Andrew Stone, and my position collapsed immediately. Ryan Winter gained a queen for a rook against Michael Nyberg, but couldn't make progress! (Draw agreed)
Nic leads with 5/5, with Anthony, Russell and Andrew Stone a whole point behind.

Among the players on 3½/5 is 10-year-old Paul He, having a very impressive tournament so far - this week he bested Lawrence Farrington without too many problems.

2018 Club Rapid Final Table

The Club Rapid finished in July, and, without Nic Croad, it was left to Russell and Anthony to slug it out. In the end Russell Dive cruised to victory, with 9 straight wins (including victory over Anthony) followed by a hard-fought draw with Andrew Stone in the last round. Anthony finished half a point behind on 9/10, with the chasing pack (Andrew Stone, me, Michael Nyberg) well back on 6 ½ points.

The starting tally of 50 players is impressive but a bit misleading - I don't think we ever had more than 40 people playing on any given night. Still, for those who did manage to turn up, it was a fun tournament.

Julian Mazur R4 - Nic Defeats Russell, Anthony Draws Again

We had an interesting round 4 of the Julian Mazur Memorial on Thursday. Nic Croad is very much on form, despite his slight wobble against Ryan Winter last week. This week he just seemed to see more tactics in his victory over Russell Dive. He annotates the game for us here.







Brian Nijman was Black against Anthony Ker and he got a draw. At one point he could even have won, but it was extremely difficult to find.

Autumn Cup 2018 Final

As promised, as part of a general catch-up, here are the final results of the Autumn Cup, which finished back in June.
Sorry for the delay!

The competition was interesting for a number of reasons. First, Nic Croad broke Anthony's winning streak, and dominated the A grade. This tournament helped Nic leapfrog over Russell Dive in the July rating list (possibly for the first time?).
Secondly, it consolidated the position of the relative newcomers in the club, mostly juniors, but also Edgar! We of the old guard can no longer feel safe against these people - I'm thinking in particular of Ryan Winter, Edgar Benitez, Fabian Day, Nathan Hall, Caleb and Paul He, and Nicholas Winsley.

The sad thing about the tournament was the number of games that weren't played. In the past these void games were confined to the lower grades, but this year even the top grade had a game that wasn't played. Maybe we should delayed the following tournament for a week so that we could have finished some of these. The worst grade for this was the F grade where the title was shared between Don Stracy and Michael Ashe, but Michael, through no fault of his own, played one game fewer than Don, which seems a bit unfair.

Anyway, congratulations to the winners:

A grade Nic Croad 4½/5
B Grade Ryan Winter 4½/5
C Grade Edgar Benitez 4/5
D Grade Fabian Day 4/5
E Grade Nathan Hall 4/5
F Grade Don Stracy (3/5) and Michael Ashe (3/4)
G Grade Nicholas Winsley 5/5
