Zehn Nasir wins ACC Patio Weather Swiss!

Annex Chess Club – Patio Weather Swiss Tournament

Bring on the patio weather! In honour of all the great patios gearing up for patio season, Annex Chess Club is launching our first annual ACC Patio Weather Swiss.

The tournament finished on June 11.

Round 5 (June 11)

After leading the U1500 section the whole way through, Shabnam Abbarin fell in the last round to Milan Cvetkovic, who is becoming a bit of a nemesis for her. In the end, the two finished tied with young Nicole Birarov for the lead at 4.0/5. But on tie-break, Shabnam is still the winner!

In the U1900 section, Hayk Oganesyan powered through with a perfect 5.0/5, finishing a full point and a half ahead of his closest section rivals. Congratulations, Hayk!

And in the top section, after a tight race, one player finished ahead of the rest – undefeated and leading by a full point at 4.0/5. Congratulations, Zehn Nasir, you are the inaugural ACC Patio Weather Swiss champion!

Round 1 (May 7)

First-round mismatches saw numerous instances of the higher-rated player crushing the underdog, but also a couple of upsets. Young Jiaxin Liu defeated Adie Todd after Adie blundered into a classic knight fork; and Bill Thornton managed to take down Greg Beal.

Round 2 (May 14)

After two rounds, the pack of leaders is shrinking in each section. In the top section, nobody is perfect, but there’s a four-way tie at one and a half points. Omid Nemati, who won the U1900 section last tournament (but got crushed last week in the top section) is now proving he deserves the promotion: he won his Round-2 game against Carlos Romero.

In the middle section, there’s a three-way tie at two points. Among the leaders is ten-year-old Jiaxin Liu, who answered her upset win in Round 1 with another win in Round 2 – this time over Peter McNelly, who was playing his first rated game after a seven-year hiatus.

Finally, in the bottom section, there’s a four-way tie at two points. Notably, the lead pack includes Jean-Marc David. He took a break from club tournaments for a while, but is evidently back with a vengeance in this one.

Round 3 (May 28)

After a week off for the Victoria Day long weekend, the ACC Patio Swiss is back in action!

While pairs of leaders are breaking out of the pack in the bottom two sections, there’s tough competition in the top group – and in fact the leader pack is growing: Wajdy Shebetah and Geordie Derraugh drew, Dan Wiebe took a bye, and two new tournament entries (Pavel Peev and Zehn Nasir) powered up to the leader group with a win apiece – all five players have 2.0/3.

In the middle (U1900) section, two youngsters are tied for the lead. Dora (Jiaxin) Liu and Hayk Oganesyan both still have perfect scores, at 3.0/3. They are due to face each other next round.

In the bottom (U1500) section, there’s a tie between Shabnam Abbarin (and she’s doing great work off the board as well, volunteering at the front desk) and newcomer, Vinorth Vigneswaramoorthy – both have perfect 3.0/3 scores. They too should face off next round.

Round 4 (June 4)

The log jam at the top of the Premier section is settling a little, and just three players remain tied for the lead. Wajdy Shebetah, Pavel Peev, and Zehn Nasir won this round, and share the lead at 3.0/4.

In the middle (U1900) section, Hayk Oganesyan defeated Dora Liu, and he goes into the last round with a perfect score of 4.0/4.

Finally, Shabnam Abbarin is not only taking care of the front desk, but she’s taking care of all comers in the U1500 section, still unstoppable with a perfect 4.0/4 record going into the last round.

ACC First Anniversary Swiss

We’ve named this club Swiss in honour of our one-year anniversary! It’s hard to believe it’s been just a year since we launched Annex Chess Club.

GM Mark Bluvshtein gave an inaugral grandmaster lecture to officially open the club on October 18, 2010. A week later, eight players started our first Fall Swiss – Hugh Siddeley, Daniel Wiebe, Yakos Spiliotopoulos, Marcus Wilker, Shabnam Abbarin, Alex Ferreira, Ian Mahoney, and Lawrence Garcia. And the rest, as they say, is history…

Round 1 (September 12)

In round one of a Swiss, it’s always nice to hope for some big upsets. And indeed there were a couple impressive upsets (rating-wise) in the Reserve B section as Josep Sobrepere and Evnato Frias defeated opponents who out-rated them by 270 and 168 points respectively. In the Open section, there were a couple of impressive draws: up-and-comer (and recent Labour Day U2000 co-winner) Zehn Nasir drew expert Stephen Fairbairn, while expert Rhys Goldstein drew master Rolando Renteria. Finally, the good sportsmanship award for this round has to go to Jack Maguire, in the Reserve A section, who offered the draw (in a probably drawn position) to Zhanna Sametova – when she had only a minute left on her clock.

Monday September 19, we took a break from the tournament, as we were honoured to welcome GM Nigel Short to our club. Check full details about his visit.

Round 2 (September 26)

In the second round, the tournament swelled back to a more normal size. Welcome and welcome back to new and returning players! Currently, IMC John Wright is leading the Premier section, Yakos Spiliotopoulos is leading Reserve A, and there’s a two-way tie between Josep Sobrepere and Evnato Frias in Reserve B. All four leaders have perfect 2.0/2 records.

Round 3 (October 3)

After three rounds, IMC John Wright continues to lead the Premier section with a 3.0/3 record. In Reserve A, leader Yakos Spiliotopoulos took a bye and is now sharing the lead with Hayk Oganesyan. And in Reserve B, Josep Sobrepere defeated rival Evnato Frias to take sole possession of the lead with 3.0/3.

Monday October 10, we took another break from the tournament, as we hosted Thanksgiving weekend tournaments at ACC.

Round 4 (October 17)

With a win over John Wright, Pavel Peev now leads the Premier section with a 3.5/4 record. In Reserve A, only two games were played, while leader Yakos Spiliotopoulos took another bye and continues to lead with 3.0/4. And in Reserve B, Josep Sobrepere continued his perfect streak and is now leading with 4.0/4.

Round 5 results (October 24)

With yet another win, this time over Wajdy Shebetah, Pavel Peev finished in clear first in the Premier section with a 4.5/5 record. In Reserve A, leader Yakos Spiliotopoulos finished clear first with 4.0/5. And in Reserve B, Josep Sobrepere ran his perfect streak through the whole tournament, finishing first with 5.0/5. Congratulations to the tournament winners!

Round 1 (July 18)

Round one of a Swiss tends to have lopsided games, with underdogs battling heavy favourites. Sometimes one or two of the underdogs comes out on top. In the Premier (over 1900) section, Mark Dutton, visiting the club from BC (he was in town as Chief Arbiter at the Canadian Open), was happy to draw Tyler Longo. But the biggest upset was by Jack Maguire, winner of the Reserve B (under 1600) section in the last tournament. He has not only moved up to Reserve A, but won his first game against Michael Sutton (1748)!

Round 2 (July 25)

After the second round, the leader packs have started to thin. In the Premier section, there’s a three-way tie for first: Rolando Renteria, David Filipovich, and Pavel Peev all have 1.5/2. In both reserve sections, there are two-way ties for the lead: Adie Todd and Marcus Wilker each have 2.0/2 in Reserve A; while Dan Geambasu and Chris Wehrfritz have perfect scores in Reserve B.

Round 3 (August 8 )

After the third round, there are clear leaders in the top and bottom sections, and a tight race in the middle section: Rolando Renteria has pulled in to sole possession of first place in the Premier section with 2.5/3, while Zehn Nasir, Adie Todd, and Marcus Wilker each have 2.5/3 in Reserve A. In Reserve B, Chris Wehrfritz is tearing it up with a perfect 3.0/3!

Round 4 (August 15 )

One more round to go! In the Premier section, David Filipovich defeated Rhys Goldstein, and is now tied for first with Rolando Renteria, who took a bye – both have 3.0/4. In Reserve A, Zehn Nasir defeated Adie Todd to take sole first. And in Reserve B, Chris Wehrfritz is continuing his streak: he now has a perfect 4.0/4!
