    Default Games played in On-line chess under classic time-controls.

    The Box Hill Chess Club newsletter Editor has a keen eye for breaking news both a local flavour and a national aspect.
    The following game was played between John Nothdurft (a BHCC ex-President, and now resident in Queensland) and Jennifer Morrison (a rapidly improving junior). The game is from the first BHCC tournament played on-line and under classic time-controls,
    The following report is provided by Jennifer.


    Its great to have a challenging & fun online activity during this difficult time. That said I still look forward to going back to our physical home in Ashwood post this close down. Our Box Hill Chess.com tournaments have been a great way to continue to improve against peers & friends . Although you could play random players online it wouldnt be the same as you would be playing someone you dont know. It is really nice to know who you are playing. There is also a good range of player difficulty in our tournaments. One positive that has saved time is the instant parings (for rapid & blitz) . This makes tournaments seem more prompt & efficient because as soon as all games finish in one round, some 5 seconds later the next round commences. No time wasted. Another great benefit is people dont need to drive to get to the venue . It has enabled some who live a very long distance from the club to participate that would not be the case for our physical tournaments. One downside however is that a few people have had internet connection issues. Ive been lucky so far. I really enjoy playing in our online tournaments and would recommend it to anyone instead of just playing random online games. The club has done a great job in organizing these events.


    2. (The Classic Dutch Defence)
    8. An Engine might say Bg5 is a slight inaccuracy however I liked this move as it tempts black to weaken his pawn structure
    8.black weakens his pawn structure slightly with h6
    12. I was a bit passive here and concerned about black pushing on f4 and probably should have played e4 keeping a strong centre
    14. Here Im on the edge of my seat and biting finger nails (in my mind anyway) as Im concerned that my bishop on c2 would be trapped if I make one wrong move.
    17. A crucial decider for me was to push f3 at first. I saw my plan as risky but realised if i dont play f3 I may as well just not have the bishop on g2 as it would be trapped as soon as f3 is played by black
    30. What would I play as white? It seemed to me my knight may as well be doomed to stay on d2 until there is no
    pressure on g3. I realised though after my game that I had a slight advantage . I probably should have played on
    given my queen can sneak into squares like d7. Also it is normally thought that a knight would likely be better in
    these positions.

    Im pretty happy with this result but know that
    there is still room for much improvement. John
    (our ex club president) is a good player and I really
    respect his game. Its therefore a good feeling to be
    going to bed on Friday night with this result.
