The 16th annual memorial tournament in honour of the great Mexican player Carlos
Torre (1905-1978) was held in Merida, Mexico, from December 12-20.  The format
was somewhat unusual: most participants were entered in a 9-round open Swiss,
but after 6 rounds the top 12 players joined Alexei Dreev, Boris Gelfand, Valery
Filippov, and Liviu-Deter Nisipeanu in a knockout event, while the remaining
players completed the last 3 rounds of the Swiss.  Despite the presence of these
strong GMs, the surprise overall winner of the knockout was Cuban IM Yuniesky
Quezada, while Vadim Milov (appropriately representing Switzerland) won the
Swiss with 7.5/9 - this after qualifying for the knockout, being eliminated in
the 1st round, and then rejoining the Swiss.

There were two Canadian participants, FMs Jonathan Berry and Sebastian Predescu:
Berry, no stranger to Mexico, apparently won by forfeit in the last round for a
final total of 5.5/9, while Predescu won the top junior prize with 5 points.

Vancouver Winter Chess Tournament

Twenty players competed in this tournament.  Ten of these players were adults,
and the other ten were juniors. About seven of players were in the 1000-1500
range, and the rest were in the 1500-2000 range.  The two sections were pooled
together, but by the last round people were paired within their own category.

Mehrdad Yousefzadeh won the upper section by winning all of his games.  Second
place was shared by Edward Tang, Richard Reid, and Peter Yee, all of them got 3

Louis McCusky won the U1500 section with 3 points.  Second place was shared by
four people: Tiffany Tang, Richard Huang, Laura Harper and Lara Heppenstall, all
with 2.

In addition to the prize money, Mehrdad received a copy of Fritz, and Louis a CD
with an edition of ChessBase Magazine.  These prizes were courtesy of
ChessFirst! Enterprises.

This was the first two day tournament that I helped to run.  I enjoyed it, and
it was a good learning experience too.  However, I must say that I found it a
bit tiring , even though I had invaluable help from Katherine Davies and my
father, who deserve a lot of credit.  Still, it was a worthwhile experience.

UBC's "Any Given Sunday" (2)

Hee Seid did it again.  By defeating Mike Miller in the last game of the 8 round
robin, Seid wins another tournament held in the UBC campus.  Seid is probably
the player that have finished first in most of the weekly events held in UBC in
recent years.  His continued participation in weekly tournaments is very
commendable, as he is one of the few players rated over 2000 that does so.
Lower rated players like me, learn a lot from playing with him.  Positions are
as follows: Seid, 5/6
Kostin, 3.5/5
Chan, 3/4
Miller, 2.5/5
Azmitia, 2/6
Jung, 1/6
Gaulin, 1/5
Sum, 0.5/1

6th. Little Mountain Active Chess Tournament

The 6th edition of the Little Mountain Active Tournament was the most
competitive of this season, as many strong players came to participate.  Michael
Yip finished ahead of the pack with four wins and a draw against the second
place, Vas Sladek.  Michael won for his efforts the prize money and a ChessBase
CD courtesy of Chess First! Enterprises.  The tentative positions are as follows
(the result of one game has yet to be decided):

Michael Yip 4.5/5
Vas Sladek 4/5
Don Monteith 3/5
Noam Davies 2/4
Lucas Davies 2/5
Jason Feng 2/5.0
Andrey Kostin 1.5/2
Hee Seid 1.5/5
Evgeni Goutor 1/1
John Prehara 0/2
Eduardo Azmitia 0/3

The overall 1st place for the grand prix was captured by Lucas Davies.  On the
last day of the tournament Lucas and Seid were separated by half a point.  In
the decisive game, Lucas prevailed over Seid, and hence Lucas secured the first
place.  A very well deserved victory by Lucas, who is improving meteorically.
Very special thanks to First Chess Enterprises! for their continued generous
support through donation of prizes and monies.

Inter-Club League
On December 11, the Little Mountain Club prevailed over the Port Coquitlam Club
in their first club league match.  This is a very good win for our team and is a
boost of morale.  The Port Coquitlam Club was the clear favourite.  The PoCo
club tied for 1st place last year, and in this year they have again a very
strong team led by 2003 BC Champion Jack Yoos.  Our team on the other hand has
no previous experience on the league and almost half of our regular players are
under the age of 18!!

At the begining of the match the situation was quite bleak for the Little
Mountaineers as one member of the team got confused with the address and his
game was forfeited for not showing up on time.  However, step by step they were
able to turn things around and the seemingly impossible was achieved.  Below are
the results:

1. B Lucas Davies - W Jack Yoos 0.5-0.5
2. W Vas Sladek - B Drago Milicevic 1-0
3. B Alejandro Diaz - W Robert North 0-1 (Forfeit)
4. W Noam Davies - B Brent McLean 1-0
5. B James Kerry - W Len Molden 0-1
6. W Valentina Goutor - B Don Monteith 0.5-0.5
7. B William Jung - W Clarke Chaney 1-0

THIRTY YEARS AGO by Bruce Harper

Thirty years ago Vancouver Grandmaster Duncan Suttles capped a phenomenal year
by playing in the classic Hastings tournament in England.  This event used to
the one of the outstanding tournaments in the chess calendar, although the most
famous Hastings tournament was probably the one held in 1895.  Suttles had a
reasonable result, but most of his games were very interesting (as usual).
Today's game is a loss, but I don't think it had to be... 

Szabo,L - Suttles,D [A42] Hastings (4), 30.12.1973

1.d4 d6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 Nc6 5.Be3 e5 6.Nge2 Nh6 7.d5 Ne7 8.f3 f5 9.Qd2
Nf7 10.Nc1 O-O 11.Nd3 c6?!

A difficult move to understand.  White's normal attack in this type of position
is c4-c5xd6, and by playing 11...c6 and 12...cxd5, Black simply saves White
time.  In return, Black at least directs the White attack down a specific
channel, and inhibits White from castling long, but, all things considered,
Black would be better off playing 11...c5 or leaving the c-pawn alone.  In his
notes in Chess Informant 17, Szabo also questions this move, although from his
annotations one gets the impression that White was winning all along.  We'll
return to this theme.

12.Be2 cxd5 13.cxd5 Bd7 14.a4 Kh8

Black doesn't want to close the kingside until White castles.  14...Kh8 clears
g8 for the e7-knight - a maneuver which has become standard today.

15.a5 Ng8 16.O-O f4!?

Beginning what will turn out to be a "near-run thing", as the Iron Duke said of
the battle of Waterloo.  A more conservative alternative was 16...Bh6, trading
off White's bishop, although the e3-bishop would then no longer be a target for
Black's pawns.  Suttles typically tries to keep the position as complex and
sharp as possible.

17.Bf2 g5 18.a6 b6 19.Nb4 h5

Since Black can't defend the queenside, he abandons it and presses on with his

20.Nc6 Qf6 21.Nb5 g4 22.Nbxa7 Bh6 23.Bxb6 g3

A different mode of attack, possible only when the reply 24.h3 can be met by a
sacrifice on h3.  White understandably prefers to avoid this possibility.

24.Kh1 Qh4 25.Bg1

The critical moment.  White has demolished Black's queenside, but Black's army
is moving towards White's king.  How does Black break in?


The wrong knight.  25...Ng5 threatens 26...Nxe4 27.fxe4 f3, but 25...Nf6! would
have also threatened to take on e4, while leaving Black's other knight on f7,
where it defends d6 and e5.

26.Bd3 Rf6?

But this is the real mistake.  Black had the promising alternative 26...Nf6!,
and if 27.Ne7 Rg8!

Szabo assesses the position as unclear in his notes in Chess Informant, while
Paul Janicki, writing in the January 1974 issue of Chess Canada (based on
comments by Suttles), gives "28.Nxg8 Rxg8, and White is defenceless against

In the Suttles book, there follows two pages of analysis, which I won't give
here.  But I'm interested to know what Bulletin readers think, if they're able
to analyze this position.  Back to the game.

27.Nb5 Rg6

This is the point in which the diagram is placed in Chess Informant.  But what
follows is pretty dull compared to what might have happened had Black not wasted
a tempo.

28.Nxd6 Rxd6 29.Nxe5 Bg7 30.Nxd7 Rxd7 31.Bb5 Rd6 32.Bc6 Ra7 33.e5

Szabo gives this move two exclamation marks.  Janicki's note, derived from
Suttles' comments, appears only after Black's reply: "33...Bxe5 was a better try
to save the game".

33...Rg6 34.d6 Nh3 35.gxh3

Hardly deserving of the exclamation mark given by Szabo.  As we have seen, Black
had to do more than simply win White's queen.

35...g2+ 36.Qxg2 Rxg2 37.Kxg2 Rf7 38.Bd4 Nh6 39.a7 Nf5 40.a8=Q+ Rf8 41.Bf2 Qg5+
42.Kh1 Ng3+ 43.hxg3 fxg3 44.Rg1 h4 45.d7 Qf5 46.Bxg3  1:0

Suttles was especially irritated by this loss because of Szabo's analysis in the
Chess Informant, which proves for the umpteenth time that you shouldn't believe
everything you read.


This issue we feature two important figures from Victoria in the early part of
the last century, C.F. Davie and Aaron Gonnason. Davie, Cyril Francis, K.C.
(January 30, 1882 - February 18, 1950)
Born in Victoria, into one of the province's most important political families:
his father, Alexander E.B. Davie, was B.C. premier 1887-1889, while his uncle
Theodore held the same office during the years 1892-1895. Davie studied law at
Ottawa University and was called to the bar in B.C. in 1907.  In 1924 he entered
politics, serving as the Conservative MLA for Cowichan-Newcastle until 1933; for
the last three years of this term he was also Speaker of the House.  From 1929
to 1931 Davie chaired a royal commission on health insurance and maternity
benefits, and became a strong advocate for state health insurance.  After 1933
he retired to private law practice in Duncan.  Davie was the author of Common
Law and Statutory Amendment in Relation to Contributory Negligence in Canada, as
well as a prolific contributor to the Canadian Bar Review.

This literary bent was also evident in Davie's chess activities: he wrote a
chess column in the Victoria Daily Colonist from 1916 until his political career
forced him to hand over the reins to Thomas Piper, and was also a contibutor to
the British Chess Magazine.  It is not known when he learnt to play chess, but
in 1914 Davie took a course of instruction from Piper.  It appears he was a good
student, for two years later he won the first Victoria City Championship by
beating William J. Barker in a match (apparently this also marked the first time
chess clocks were used for a match in Victoria).

However, it was in the field of correspondence chess that Davie made his most
important contributions.  In April 1916 he formed the Canadian Branch of the
Chess Amateur Correspondence League, which ran various tournaments for both
American and Canadian players.  Davie's connection with the league did not last
long: he allowed the CACL (Canadian Branch) to be part of the merger which led
to the formation of the Correspondence Chess League of America in 1917.  He
withdrew from any role in the new organization, on the grounds that since there
were so few players in Western Canada, control would be better exercised from
further east.  Despite this short tenure, he inaugurated the first Canadian
correspondence championship (won by R.W. Worsley of Yorkton, Saskatchewan in),
as recognized and continued now by the Canadian Correspondence Chess

Gonnason, Aaron (November 25, 1865 - December 27, 1938)

Born in Sweden.  Gonnason's family emigrated to America when he was six, where
they mined coal and farmed in Kansas.  In 1883 Aaron and his elder brother
Benjamin departed for the more lucrative possibilities of the Pacific Northwest
lumber industry; after a year in Seattle they settled in Victoria, where they
found employment in a mill.  In 1890 they joined with Joseph J. Lemon to start
their own millwrighting firm, Capital Planing Mills (later Lemon, Gonnason and
Co. Ltd.); Aaron rose to become president of the company, a position he held for
many years.  The company eventually ceased operations in 1958, Aaron and
Benjamin having died within five days of each other twenty years earlier.

Gonnason was a competent club player, but was more important as a benefactor: he
donated two trophies that bore his name.  The first, given in 1921, was a cup
for the Victoria City Championship (the event inaugurated by Davie in 1916), a
trophy which Gonnason himself won in 1922 with a score of 8/10.  This trophy
recently came to light again, and is currently in the possession of your editor:

Gonnason Cup

The inscription on the front reads "Victoria City Amateur Chess Championship -
presented by A. Gonnason, March 1921."  On the rear is a list of the winners:

1921  W.J. Barker
1922  A. Gonnason
1923  L. Partington
1924  W.J. Barker
1925  L. Partington
1926  L. Partington
1927  W.J. Barker
1928  F. Knowles
1929  W.J. Barker
1930  W.J. Barker

The second Gonnason Cup was donated for a provincial inter-city team
championship; beginning in the early 1920's, the trophy was awarded to the
winners of a team match between two cities and was retained for one year, at
which point another city could challenge the trophy holders to a match.  The
last such recorded instance was in May 1962, when the Vancouver City C.C.
retained the Gonnason Cup by defeating both the Vancouver Continental C.C. and
the Prince George C.C. in match play.  Does anyone know of the current
whereabouts of the (Team) Gonnason Cup?
