ACC Backyard Barbecue – Results

backyard barbecue

Celebrating the warm-weather tradition of having friends over for a barbecue in the backyard, this club tournament started on Monday May 27. It runs for four rounds (Monday nights at 7:30 pm) to June 17. The club will be closed June 24 (because the playing hall is unavailable) and July 1 (for Canada Day).

Players are competing in three sections, based on CFC rating. The top “Crown” section is for players over 1800. The next two sections are “Under-1800” and “Under-1400.”

Round One – May 27

Round One tends to feature some of the biggest rating mismatches a new tournament will see, which allows some lower-rated players to get flame-broiled quickly. There’s always a possibility of a few upsets too, and tonight is no exception: some higher-rated players fell through the grill and got a bit charred.

Round Two – June 3

In second-round action, Bill Evans beats Dan Wiebe to take a clear lead in the Crown section. Ian Prittie, newly graduated to the U1800 section, takes down his second 1600+ opponent (in the person of Josep Sobrepere) and now stands tied for first with Ulli Diemer. And Jean-Marc David is alone in first in the U1400 section. It is Shabnam Abbarin who has the last game of the night (even including the Toronto Closed games) – her marathon battle with Bradley Yee that ended in a draw after 85 moves is this week’s game of the week!

Round Three – June 10

In Round 3, the leaders stay strong. Bill Evans holds off Arkadiy Ugodnikov to maintain his lead in the Crown section, Ulli Diemer defeats rival Ian Prittie to hold first place in the U1800, and Jean-Marc David draws Jeff Pancer to stay a half point ahead in the U1400 section. With the Toronto Closed ending, a number of Championship players joined the top section. Our game of the week will feature a battle between Chris Udrea and Dave Southam, both joining the ACC Backyard BBQ in round 3 (stay tuned!).

Round Four – June 17

With a couple off-days coming up (the club will be closed June 24 and July 1), we’re shortening this tournament to four rounds. In the final round, Bill Evans defeats Hooshang Abbarin to take first in the Crown section with a perfect 4.0/4. Congratulations, Bill! Ulli Diemer wins his game against young Harmony Zhu to take first in the U1800, again with a perfect 4.0/4. And finally, Jean-Marc David, with a last-round win against Eli Teram, takes the U1400 section with 3.5/4. Section winners earn the right to play in a higher section in the upcoming Summer Festival Swiss, starting July 15, even if they don’t qualify by rating.

Don’t miss your chance to play international grandmaster Elshan Moradi, when he comes to the club on July 8! Admission is free for members, and it’s $35 to play in the simultaneous exhibition. Reserve your board today.
