ACC Summer in the City Swiss

It’s summer in T.O. Check out 50 things to do in Toronto in the summer, and I hope one of them is to play in this chess tournament on Monday nights in the Annex!

The Summer in the City Swiss is five rounds on Monday nights from July 24 to August 28. It’s in four sections by CFC rating: the new Masters section (for those rated 2100+), Under-2200 (for 1700-2199), Under-1800 (1300-1799), and Under-1400 (0-1399).

Rounds start at 7:30 pm. New players are welcome to join in any round with byes, but must register before 7:00 pm to be paired.

Players who join the tournament will automatically be paired for subsequent rounds. Please email before 6:00 pm on Monday to request a bye if you cannot attend. Up to two ½-point byes are available in rounds 1-4 and zero-point byes after.

ACC June Bug Swiss

Our latest chess tournament is named for the big brown beetles that seem to show up out of nowhere in June. Part of the scarab family, June bugs are usually considered a pest. Personally, I’ve always found them humorously clumsy; they always seem to be flying into walls, getting stuck on their back, or moving slowly and awkwardly across the ground, dragging their big belly with scrabbling legs.

Running through June from May 29 to July 10, the ACC June Bug Swiss is a 5-round club tournament in three sections, Masters, U2200, and U1600. Yes, those cut-offs are a little different than normal – partly because it’s nice to mix up the sections to give people some new opponents, but mostly because we’re trying an experiment with this tournament, making the Masters section a little more exclusive in the hopes of attracting some new strong players.

Accordingly, our three sections are the new Masters section, then U2200, and then U1600. As always, those within 100 points of the cut-off may request to play up in the next higher section. E.g., a 2120 would naturally be in the U2200 section, but could request to play in the Masters. Similarly a 1530 would naturally be placed in U1600, but could request to play in U2200.

four square shadow

Round One – May 29

The tournament starts with 31 players in three sections. The Masters section has a very low turn-out with just one player. We already have some additional entries for Round Two!

In U2200, there are some big rating differences in the first round, and at the end of the night the results on the pairing sheet show a zig-zag pattern indicating a sweep by the rating favourites. In U1600, two unrated players play their first standard CFC-rated tournament game, Benjamin Kamnizer, who loses to Evgeny Kalmanson, and Akshay Seshadri, who wins against Reza Anghaie. Otherwise, the section is also a sweep for the rating favourites. See full results below.

Round Two – June 5

The Masters section doubles in the second round with two players now registered. William Li defeats Dave Southam to stay in first with 2.0/2.

In U2200, four 1900s face off on the top boards. Shawn Talsma and John Fines are victorious and now tied for the lead at 2.0/2.

In U1600, both unrated players are on the board as Benjamin Kamnitzer wins his game. Tied for the lead with 2.0/2 are Shabnam Abbarin, Gregory Szucs, and George Supol.

Round Three – June 12

In the Masters section, Sergey Noritsyn joins and defeats William Li. The two are now tied at 2.0/3. In U2200 action, John Fines defeats Shawn Talsma to take sole first with a perfect score of 3.0/3. And in U1600, Shabnam Abbarin stays perfect at 3.0/3 with a win over George Supol, while Gregory Szucs and Bill Randle are just half a point behind at 2.5/3.

Off-week – July 3

It’s Canada Day weekend and ACC is closed.

Round Five – July 10

Final round. Sergey Malakhovets draws Dave Southam to take the tournament with just 2.5/5. John Fines earns a forfeit win to take U2200 with 4.5/5. And Gregory Szucs draws Javier Dixon to take U1600 with 4.0/5, tied with Shabnam Abbarin but with a better head-to-head tiebreak, having beaten her in Round 4.

ACC April Flurries Swiss

April showers bring May flowers, but living in Toronto it’s not unusual to have snow flurries in April.

The ACC April Flurries Swiss runs from April 10 to May 29. This CFC-rated five-round tournament is broken into three sections, Crown, U1800, and U1400, and runs concurrently with the annual city championship, the 2017 Toronto Closed.

four square shadow

Round One – April 10

The tournament starts with 25 players in three sections. As in Round 1 of almost any Swiss, there are a number of David-versus-Goliath matchups and a few surprise upsets. In the Crown, Matthew Bergeron (1749) scores an upset win over the young giant, Max England (2056). In U1800, Dragan Jevtic (1388) upsets Kevin Li (1624) and Gregory Szucs (1302) defeats Brett Kingsbury (1504). Finally in U1400, Ivan Noritsyn (885) upsets Cody Ellis (1191).

Round Two – April 24

Twelve new players join the tournament in Round 2.

In the Crown section, Matthew Bergeron wins again, this time over Peter McSherry. He is now tied for the lead with Ochuko Emuakpeje, who defeats William Li. Bergeron and Emuakpeje both have 2.0/2.

In the middle section, which gains 7 new players and is now up to 16, Dragan Jevtic beats Joey Qiao and Gregory Szuchs beats Bob Armstrong, so it’s a couple of 1300s who are tied for the lead in the U1800 section, at 2.0/2.

And in the U1400 section, which now has 14 players, it’s David Chodoriwsky alone in first at 2.0/2 with a win over Ivan Noritsyn.

Round Three – May 1

In the Crown section, Alex Ferreira makes a cameo appearance and beats Shawn Talsma, while Peter McSherry and John Fines – both oh-for thus far – play to a draw. Leaders Ochuko Emuakpeje and Matthew Bergeron both take byes and still lead the section with 2.5/3.

In U1800, Gregory Szuchs wins the playoff in the top point group to hold sole possession of the lead with a perfect 3.0/3. Trailing by half a point are Brian Hanratty, reaching 2.5 with a win over Shabnam Abbarin, and Harry Chen, with an upset over Ulli Diemer.

Finally in the closely fought U1400, David Chodoriwsky still holds the lead as Evgeny Kalmanson draws him to rise to 2.0/3 along with four other players half a point behind Chodoriwsky’s 2.5.

Round Four – May 8

Jeremy D’Souza visits Annex with free cookies to promote the Etobicoke Chess Club at the Second Cup at 265 Wincott Drive on Thursday nights.

In the delayed showdown between Bergeron and Emuakpeje, Ochuko Emuakpeje wins again to take sole possession of first place going into the last round with 3.5/4. In U1800, Brian Hanratty and Harry Chen move up from tied for second at 3.5 to tied for first at 4.5 as Hanratty beats first place Gregory Szuchs. Finally in U1400, Alan McMillan beats leader David Chodoriwsky to rise to first along with Evgeny Kalmanson and Javier Dixon at 3.0/4.
