Gambito #316

Special Super Gambito #316   4/07/07

This was one of those special 5 round Gambito Opens that we only do about twice a year. Attendance was good at 35, although slightly below our optimistic projection of 40 players for a $1,600 prize fund. We paid out $1,440, so we got pretty close to the goal. All the prizes were reduced by $10 each from the advertised amount, so it was not too bad of a haircut. In the Open Section we had 5 Masters today, 5 Experts and 7 Class A players, plus 1 B and 1 C who played up, for a total of 19 there. We also had 10 B's and 6 C's in the Reserve Section for a grand total of 35 players.   

Note that William Delaney won the Reserve Section despite not being able to play the last round. No problem, he just won his first four games and that score held up to win clear first! Another interesting tale was when Dimitry Kishinevsky won his game with Rick Aeria when Rick lost on time. Dimitry stopped the clock with 1 second left on his own digital readout! Both players had been living off the 5 second delay for the last 15 moves or so. Initially it looked drawish with Bishops of opposite color, but there were Rooks still on the board and each player had a dangerous passed pawn. Rick queened his pawn first and was clearly winning when he hesitated on one move and took longer than the allowed 5 seconds (those seconds fly by very fast when you are trying to make a good move). A tough loss for Rick, who was also distracted earlier in the game when a spectator interfered in the game, thinking an illegal move had been made. NEVER do that! First of all, even if there was an illegal move (which actually there wasn't!), you can never tip off a player, and you can't call flags down either. The game is between the two players on the board and they have to notice these things, not outside kibitzers. It was a low rated player who interfered and I won't embarrass him by mentioning his name, but he should have known better because he has been playing at our club for many years. He did apologize and understands now that what he did was wrong. I just bring it up now so that everyone will know NOT to do this!
