Brewood Rapid Play Club Championship enters final stages

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 8:55 AM

Since the last update on the website, David Buckley has played four games in the rapid play club championship, two games each on 2nd February and then 23rd February. 


To remind everyone of the tournament format, the time control is 20 minutes for all moves + 10 seconds per move, from move one, as the only available time control in the tournament.  The tournament results count for a player's ECF rapid play grade, as well as deciding who wins the internal rapid play club championship. 


To encourage participiation in the tournament there is an important factor, that a bonus point is awarded for each game played.  This has made a noticeable difference in the existing group B standings.

Here are the match reports from last nights action: 


David Blower ½ - ½ David Buckley.  David Buckley as black played the Sicilian Defence, in response to my e4 opening.  After playing e6 at one stage, I responded with Bf5, and it was impossible for David Buckley to play exf5 because the pawn on e6 was pinned, because I had doubled up my queen and rook on the e file. 


Eventually later on in the game I went a pawn up, but the extra pawn was a rook pawn.  I was unable to convert the advantage as David Buckley had rook and king, and I had rook, king and pawn.  I had played on in the hope that David Buckley would make a mistake but despite my best efforts converting the rook pawn proved impossible. 


David Buckley got his rook and king into a good position to stop the extra rook pawn from queening.  A draw was eventually agreed in a dead drawn position, and with 10 seconds being added on per move, no one was going to run out of time! 


Mike Jarocki 1-0 David Buckley.  Mike Jarocki said that he also had an extra pawn in the game, but the difference was that Mike's king was in a better position than David's king to help support the pawn promotion.  Mike eventually queened his extra pawn and then got a checkmate on David. 


Further details of the competition will be confirmed shortly.
