ENGLISH BAY FIDE TOURNAMENT

This FIDE-rated round robin took place on the April 25-27 weekend.  We hope 
to present a full report in a future Bulletin, but in the meantime here are 
the results:

1. Yoos - 4
2-3. Meng, Moura - 3
4. Milicevic - 2
5-6. Fullbrook, Sladek - 1.5

We have the following comments from the winner, Jack Yoos:

"I just wanted to mention, to any experts/masters out west, that last 
weekend, here in Vancouver, I played in a FIDE rated RR tournament organized 
by Vas Sladek.  Vas has been holding a series of tournaments for experts and 
masters recently.  Well, Vas did a great job!  It was a first-rate tournament 
with excellent playing conditions and very good prizes in relation to entry 
fee.  I highly recommend his tournaments to anybody interested."

Yoos was also kind enough to forward his games from the event, along with 
brief notes.  Thanks again, Jack!  [N.B. in the following -/+ means 
distinctly better for Black, rather than winning for Black which is -+]

BCCF AGM NEWS

As many of you are aware, the annual Keres Memorial Tournament is just a few 
weeks away (still plenty of time to get your entry in!).  On the Sunday of 
that weekend the BCCF Annual General Meeting will be held at the site, 
between rounds.  As preparation for the meeting we present below the platform 
of Robert North, who is a candidate for the position of BCCF president.  We 
will also be happy to publish any other comments potential candidates might 
wish to have made known.  And for everyone else, we encourage you to get 
involved and attend the AGM - it is your federation, after all!


Fellow members of the British Columbia Chess Federation executive and chess 
enthusiasts in British Columbia:

The purpose of this e-mail is to tell you that I am a candidate for President 
of the BCCF.  I am writing to you now so that you have some information about 
my election platform in advance of the election of
BCCF executive members during the Keres tournament in May.  The platform will 
be outlined in the broadest of brushstrokes since it is meant to ignite a 
debate within the BCCF.  I intend to use that debate to achieve a consensus 
amongst the executive and other chess players about this organisation's 
strengths and weaknesses, and where the BCCF should go in the future.

Who I am:

Chess has been woven into the fabric of my life for 36 years.  I have been 
playing tournament chess since 1968 in Saskatchewan and then from 1971 on in 
British Columbia ( I played in over 60 tournaments during the 70s and 80s ).  
I have twice co-directed the Keres Memorial in the early
80s and directed other smaller tournaments during that era.  I helped in a 
small way to write for and edit the B.C. Chess Report magazine in the 
mid-80s.  Then I married, got busy with a career in the Federal Civil 
Service, and had children; chess for me then became something I only read 
about in 'En Passent' and on the Internet.

Now my children are teenagers, I don't work evenings and weekends anymore, 
and chess is a passion for me again.  I am a member of the very successful 
Port Coquitlam Chess Club Team ( Lower Mainland Team Champions five out of 
the last seven years ), I play tournaments regularly, and my rating is edging 
closer to 2200.  I teach chess every Friday night to children of all ages at 
my local elementary school in Port Moody and I coach Youth soccer in the same 
city.

The Platform:

I want the BCCF to become a 'big tent', where players of all ages can find 
opportunities to play serious chess against good opposition more than once or 
twice a year.  I propose that this 'big tent' be supported by major 
tournaments held every year in Vancouver and Victoria.  I would define a 
'major' tournament as an event that would attract 50 to 100+ players.  The 
plan would be that, over time, these 'major' tournaments and their calendar 
dates would become synonymous for chess players in B.C., Alberta, and 
Washington State.  The tournaments would be:

*    In Vancouver; the Keres in May, tournaments on long weekends in August 
and October, with another tournament sometime in the winter;

*    In Victoria; the Labour Day Open in September, the MacAdam Memorial in 
January, and the B.C. Closed (date to be decided);

*    The Interior of B.C.; a tournament on the November holiday weekend and, 
possibly, the Easter weekend.

(Please understand this rough scheduling is intended only to generate debate 
and is not/not intended to be final.)

Not only would this sort of yearly schedule - dates determined and planned 
well in advance - give adult players in the Pacific Northwest something to 
mark on their calendars but young people in the elementary and high school 
chess clubs would see a place for them to play competitive chess when they 
graduate.  Please note I said the Pacific Northwest; I think that tournaments 
in B.C. can and should do a much better job of luring American players (and 
American dollars) north of the border.

For those players unable to attend or who don't like big tournaments, the 
BCCF would encourage and support those tournament directors of smaller 
weekend tournaments, FIDE-rated round-robins, and the Lower Mainland Team 
Championship.  The support would take the form of supplying tournament 
directors with lists of potential players in the tournament area and media 
relation kits.  The BCCF would also fund-raise in order to make prize funds 
less dependant on entry fees.

The Challenge Ahead:

This is just a dream you say?  Who would do all the work necessary to bring 
these events to fruition?  Well, I would - in part.  I have been a tournament 
director so I know what support TDs need.  I am a member of the BCCF 
executive and a Governor of the Canadian Chess Federation so I know that 
politics and economics play a large role in organizing chess events.  I have 
watched my wife work the media and fund-raise for school organisations so I 
know it can be done when approached calmly and with persistence over a period 
of years ( yes, years, this is not a one or two year project I am proposing 
).  I would also expect other executive members to do what they can to fulfil 
the goals agreed upon by the executive.

I cannot promise you the proposals in this election platform will occur as I 
have outlined them; not everything in life goes our way.  However, I will 
make two promises:  if you send an e-mail about chess in B.C. to 
robertnorth10@hotmail.com, I will reply within 48 hours; and I will listen to 
and work with anyone who wants to bring more and better chess opportunities 
to British Columbia.  We deserve the best.

Thank you for your attention.

Robert North


30 YEARS AGO . . . by Bruce Harper

Today's game is from the finals of the 1973 B.C. Championship, which were 
held in Nanaimo.  Brian McLaren, Stan Pakosta, John Lee and I played a double 
round robin.  John Lee lost his first two games and dropped out.  I don't 
have any record of playing him, so I think the other two beat him.  Lucky me! 
 But I'm sure my view of his withdrawal was the same then as it is now.  In 
any case, the rest of us carried on without him.
 
In the end, I actually managed to win the Championship by beating Brian and 
drawing my other three games, while the others traded wins.  Here is the key 
game - it's not pretty:
 
McLaren-Harper, B.C. Championship, 1973
 
1.e4 e5 (!?) 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bc4 Nf6?
 
Presumably my idea was to achieve surprise in the opening.  This is fine, but 
had White now played 4.Ng5!, I would have been the one who was surprised, and 
I'd probably be writing an article on how Brian McLaren won the 1973 B.C. 
Championship.  Maybe he just trusted me.
 
4.Nc3 Be7 5.d4 Nbd7 6.h3 h6 7.Be3 c6 8.a4 Qc7
 
According to me, we were both waiting for the other to castle kingside, so we 
could attack with g4 (or g5).  Brian will have to tell us whether that was 
really true - but I know I was!  I even did it, with colours reversed, as 
recently as last year's Keres!  (I won beautifully - in a long endgame...)
 
9.Qd2 Nf8 10.Bb3 Bd7 11.g3?! Ng6 12.Ng1?!
 
11.g3 looked like it was just meant to take f4 away from Black's Ng6, but 
actually White optimistically planned to redeploy his Nf3 to e2, then play 
f2-f4.  The problem is that the centre is unresolved, and the time lost in 
undeveloping can be important if the position opens up.
 
12...exd4! 13.Bxd4 Be6 14.Bxe6 fxe6 15.f4 e5!
 
This move is better the second time around.
 
16.fxe5 dxe5 17.Be3 Rd8 18.Qg2 0-0 19.Nge2 Qa5 
 
19...Nh7 was also possible.
 
20.0-0 Bc5
 
Black gets rid of his only potentially bad piece and weakens the dark squares 
in White's position.
 
21.Bxc5 Qxc5+ 22.Kh1 Rd2
 
The poor position of White's queen is proving costly.
 
23.Rac1 Rfd8 24.Qf2 Qxf2!
 
After 24...Qb4 25.Qf5!, White gets counterplay.
 
25.Rxf2 a5 26.Kg2 b5! 27.Kf3?! b4 28.Nb1 R2d7 29.Ke3 c5
 
29...b3 is cute, but doesn't seem to lead anywhere.
 
30.Rg1 c5 31.Nc1 Rd1 32.Rgf1?
 
Better was 32.Rff1!  I then gave a long variation starting with 32...R1d4 
33.c3, which supposedly leads to a roughly equal ending.
 
32...R8d4 33.Nd2? Rxf1?
 
Both players missed 33...R4xd2, winning a piece.  Time trouble?  Or maybe 
nerves.
 
34.Rxf1 c3 35.bxc3 bxc3 36.Nb1 Rxe4+ 37.Kd3 Rd4+ 38.Kxc3 Ne4+ 39.Kb2
 
If 39.Kb3 Rb4+.
 
39...Rxa4 40.Rf3 Rb4+ 41.Nb3?
 
I think I was very happy to see this move!
 
41...a4 42.Nc3
 
If 42.Ka3 axb3 43.Kxb4 bxc2 and Black wins the Nb1.
 
42...axb3 43.cxb3 Rxb3+  0:1
 
Black actually sees a tactic!
 
I always had great trouble with McLaren.  I think he played well, which is 
often a problem.
