DUBAI TRIP JULY 2008

Trefor Thynne reports

 

Five young chessplayers from TBGS have just returned from the chess experience of a lifetime when they competed in an international under 14 tournament in Dubai (United Arab Emirates).  The tournament comprised 136 juniors from countries including the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, India, Azerbaidjan, Georgia, South Korea, south Africa, Germany and Italy as well as a contingent of 14 from England, five of whom were from Torbay Boys' Grammar School accompanied by their chess master, Trefor Thynne.  This was the third year that the invitation to the prestigious event has been extended to boys from the school and obviously represented a wonderful cultural experience besides the chess tournament itself.

All five of the boys acquitted themselves creditably in the nine-round tournament with the scores as follows:-

Sam Head (Kingskerswell)

4

Charles Rochford (Paignton)

5

Edward Woolcott (Liverton)

5

Freddie Sugden (Bovey Tracey)

5

George Darling (Torquay)

6˝

Pride of place in these results therefore goes to 13-year old George Darling for whom it was the second year of the event.  George finished 14th overall in the tournament and won a prize of 200$ US.  George, a member of Newton Abbot chess club, achieved the best result of all 14 English competitors in the tournament, a striking result given that the players at the top were among the best players in the world at their age-group.  The tournament winner (as in 2007), 13-year old Indian boy Srinath Narayanan was the world Under 12 champion in 2007.

Although most of their 10 day stay in Dubai was devoted to preparation, coaching and playing, the boys had time to take a safari into the desert to go "dune-bashing", to ride a camel, to visit the Wild Wadi water park and to stroll round the souks of Dubai.  Despite the intense heat which reached 48degrees on one day and the traffic jams of one of the world's fastest growing holiday destinations, all the boys can look back on a memorable experience which will certainly help their future chess careers.

                                   

EXTRACTS FROM THE TBGS NEWSPAPER "TORQUIN"

Chess Club News 2007-2008

This has been without doubt one of the busiest seasons on record for the school chess club with lots of activity at all levels.  We have had teams playing in two divisions of the TORBAY LEAGUE, one team in the DEVON CHESS ASSOCIATION,s Junior Division, one team in the ECF National School's Cup together with the usual Millfield Tournament, the UK School's Championships at Brean Sands, Somerset, a visit from a junior team in Kiev, Ukraine, a Spring term coaching programme, the annual UK Challenge tournament and the ever-popular House Chess competition which involved over 220 boys.  In addition a number of our squad members have achieved great things in outside events at Area, County and National level.

The first big event of the season, as for the past 20 years, was the Millfield School's Team Tournament.  As usual, we took two teams of 12 thus enabling a substantial number of boys to experience the high standard at this event.  Our A team did very well to win the Major Section outright and we had the unprecedented sight of no less than 6 Board Prizes being awarded to TBGS players: Harry Darling, Laurens Stigink, George Darling (100% score), Alex Billings, Oliver Demeger and Sam Head.   ............

In March we hosted a visit by a party of young chess players from Kiev in the Ukraine who were playing a series of matches in south Devon.  Two of the visitors were of near master standard but the remainder found themselves well matched against the TBGS squad in an all-day tournament held in LA8.     ..............

The annual tournament for the "UK CHESS CHALLENGE" proved as popular as ever with 30 entries.  It was won this year by Callum Picken (11H) who can call himself the School champion for 2008.  A number of the boys qualified for the Regional Mega-Final and a few hope to reach the National Giga-Final of what is claimed to be the world's largest chess event.  ........................

As in 2006 and 2007 a group of Under 14 players is travelling with Mr. Thynne to Dubai in July to compete in an international tournament.  This year three year 8 boys, George Darling, Sam head, and Charlie Rochford together with Freddie Sugden and Ed Woolcott from year 9, are representing the school as part of a larger group of top English juniors.   ...........

 

Our thanks to Trefor Thynne for the following:

THE 2008 TORBAY CONGRESS

During the last few months Ray Chubb has been wrestling with the possibility that the Belgrave Hotel in Torquay may not be available for the forth-coming congress.  Due to a change in ownership the future of the congress was placed in some jeopardy.  Ray's worst fears were realised when today (13th June 2008) he visited the new hotel management who had just recently finalised their plans for the future of the hotel.  He discovered that the rooms formerly used by the Congress were to be reconstructed and the facilities that we have enjoyed for the past few years would no longer be suitable.

This prompted Ray to research the possibility of other establishments that have previously hosted the Congress.  Of these he discovered that the Riviera Centre (themselves having undergone reconstruction) were able to offer a venue that was eminently acceptable and would maintain the high standard of playing conditions that all Devon congresses aspire towards.  He concluded a deal that will see the Congress returning to the Centre in this coming November and also secured for 2009.  Ray has reported that the staff of the Centre will welcome the return of all chess players.

Ray assures "Chess Devon" that the facilities made available by the Riviera Centre will maintain the high standard of playing conditions that has been a paramount consideration of all the recent Torbay Congresses.  Not only will the playing conditions be pristine but the supporting facilities provided by the Centre will be available.  In addition, the Torbay Congress dates will be "back-to-back" with the Beacon Seniors in order that visitors to South Devon will be able to conserve on traveling costs should they wish to play in both tournaments.

This is a tremendous achievement on the part of Ray and it is now up to the chess playing fraternity of Devon and all national players to support and secure the future of this popular congress.

Brochures will shortly be available and will be posted on "Chess Devon", so keep a keen eye open.

"Chess Devon" applauds the energy, enthusiasm and fortitude that Ray has demonstrated in overcoming what appeared to be insurmountable difficulties during the last months.  We are indeed fortunate in Devon to have Ray as one of the hard-working and dedicated workers who promote and maintain the interests of all chess players.

TORBAY CONGRESS 2007

The Torbay League Congress of 2007 - a year that celebrated the 50th anniversary of its formation- was held in the Belgrave Hotel on the Torquay sea-front over the week-end of 23rd/25th November 2007. This date was contrived to go back-to-back with the Beacon Seniors held during the preceding week, in order to cut the escalating costs of visitors travelling to our West Country chess events.

Once again, Ray Chubb organised a magnificent congress in the congenial surroundings of this superb hotel fronted on Torbay.  The aim of all congresses held in the West Country is to provide pristine playing conditions, even if this is at the expense of congress finances.  Ray managed to do this despite an overwhelming demand for entry. 

Chess Devon intends to give a full account of this event by providing the games from all sections, but in the meantime we offer our sincere thanks and appreciation of Ray's hard work and dedication.

Following is his report on the event.

TORBAY CHESS LEAGUE - latest news from Tony Tatam – 27th April 2008

 

TEIGNMOUTH are the TCL CHAMPIONS
 

The final Division 1 fixture of the season saw Newton Abbot defeat previously unbeaten Teignmouth 2˝-1˝ at the Courtney Centre. This result meant that both Clubs finished level on 9 points but it is Teignmouth with a slightly superior games points record who are the TCL Champions. Newton Abbot were leading 2˝-˝ and the final game would decide the Championship. A win for either Club would give them the title and a draw would mean the title would be shared. So no pressure on Charlie Howard and John Gorodi then. With an endgame of Rook, Bishop & Pawn against Rook and Pawn both players went for the win but it was the home player with the pawn advantage whose flag which fell first to give Teignmouth the precious 1˝ games points that enabled them to take the title. And so it was that the TCL Championship was decided in the last game of the last Division 1 match of the season.

The next night the Division 3 title was decided in a similar fashion when Plymouth were leading 2-1 against Totnes. In the last game Plymouth’s Rob Barnes was playing Rob Wilby on Board 1. A win or draw for Plymouth meant they would win the match and take the title. Totnes needed a win to draw the match and take the title. Both players frantically pounded out the moves as the flags hovered. The Totnes flag fell first but several seconds passed before Rob Barnes noticed and claimed the win. And so it was that the Division 3 title was won in the last minute of the last game of the last league match.

Who would have predicted that two of the four leagues would not be decided until the last match of the season and that a different Club would win each of the four leagues,

Division 1 - Teignmouth

Division 2 - St Marychurch

Division 3 - Plymouth

Rapidplay - Newton Abbot

In the other matches played recently, Totnes played three Rapidplay fixtures in the space of just seven days, losing the first 1-7 away to St Marychurch and then winning the next two 7-1 at home and then 7-1 away, to bottom of the table South Hams. In the final Rapidplay match Champions Newton Abbot lost at home 2-6 to St Marychurch who finished as Runners-up.

In Division 2, Teignmouth won their final match 2˝-1˝ against the youngsters from Torquay BGS who had to settle for bottom spot. And in the final Division 2 match Plymouth won away to Brixham to snatch the Runners-up spot away from Teignmouth on games points.

St Marychurch drew their third consecutive Division 3 match when they were held at home by the Newton Abbot Pawns who were fresh from their whitewashing of the Champions elect. Teignmouth completed their Division 3 fixtures with a win over Torquay BGS and the Division was set for the top of the table showpiece title decider between Plymouth and Totnes.

The season is all but complete, as the only fixture now remaining is the KO Cup Final, Newton Abbot v Plymouth, which will be played on the 7th May.

Regards to all,

Tony

 

 

 

THE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION MATCH

The 50th Anniversary of the Torbay League was celebrated by a match against Exeter and District played at the Torbay Boys' Grammar School on Sunday 30th September.  Originally it was planned as a 50 board match but, unfortunately, Exeter were unable to raise the requisite number of players and eventually with the help of extra Torbay players a match of 46 boards was arranged.

Trefor Thynne, the President of the Torbay League and captain of the league side, welcomed all players with a short account of how the league was formed and drew attention to copies of the minutes displayed that recorded the meeting at which the league was initially established..  In particular he welcomed Ken Bloodworth, now working on his centenary, to the match.  Ken was mentioned in the minutes and must now be the oldest surviving member of the league.  The captain of the league team that won the WECU graded tournament the week before, Rob Wilby, was presented with the WECU cup and a personal award for his efforts in the preceding season.  Bill Ingham won a similar award.

Bob Jones, as the visiting captain, responded to Trefor's welcome and offered congratulations and well wishes from Mrs Jones, the wife of Eddy Jones, who had been a prime mover in the formation of the league, and Gary Lane, who had been the most prominent player in the league.  Writing from Australia, where he has now settled with his family, Gary's message was :-

"I wish to offer my congratulations on the Torbay League's 50th anniversary. This was a great environment in which to practice my chess and left many fond memories. It was invaluable to play against such experienced players as Ivor Annetts, for example, Peter Halmkin, Bill Frost, John Gorodi and Alan Brusey. However, my memory must be fading, because since then, all of them claim to have beaten me!

Have a great time, and I hope Torbay wins".

Play started at three o'clock and at the close the official result was Torbay League 30˝ points, Exeter and District 15˝.  There is no evidence that Torbay members playing for Exeter artificially assisted such a massive victory.

A rather sumptuous tea was provided and as a memento of the occasion, each player received an inscribed pen.

Victor Cross, as arbiter, was given the invidious task of arranging the pairings at short notice and must be cleared of any hint of partisanship.

All thanks are due to Trefor Thynne for planning and organising the event together with a handful of helpers on the day.

Footnote.

Of the 46 games played, 35 were between Torbay and Exeter players.  This match was won by Torbay with 25 points against 10. 

Torbay winners in this "match" were D. Mackle, E. Walton, T. Thynne, C. Howard, J. Gorodi, H. Mann, R. Barnes, R. Wilby, C. Doidge, A. Tatam, N. Tidy, P. Ruszelak, m. Fisher, M. Chester, J. Ariss, A. Hatch, R. Chubb, J. Doidge, P. Gwynne, and S. Howard.  Drawn games were played by W. Ingham, S. Schofield, P. Halmkin, A. Clarke, E. Smith, M. Quinn, K. Bloodworth, W. Frost and M. Cuggy.
