2016 Happy New Chess Year

Image result for 2016

We had a pleasing start to 2016 with 13 players attending the Round 1 BLITZ (5 min) Tournament.

I have corrected last year’s Rnd 1 BLITZ results to include Martin Barakat which changed the overall 2015 BLITZ Championship result. Steve Ascic is still Champion but now Scott Humphreys is 2nd with Martin Barakat 3rd.

There was some talk of changing the BLITZ time limit from 5 min to 3 min + 2 sec/move. NSWCA advised that they have no plans to change from 5 mins.  Australian Blitz Champs and NSW, ACT, VIC and WA Blitz State Champs are all played with 5 min time limits with only QLD using 3 min + 2 sec/move. It was decided that we would keep the 5 min time limit until NSWCA makes a change.

There will be no Qualifying Swiss held to determine who plays in A-Grade in our Club Championships. The Championship format will be a 7 round Swiss with B-Grade placing based on a rating limit. The Qualifying Swiss will become the 2016 May Swiss (5 rounds).
