Purdy Cup Round 1

We had 25 people start in the Purdy Cup on Tuesday, named after CJS Purdy, shown here, although his son was also no slouch at chess, and also became a Family Court judge. Some CJS Purdy trivia: while in Tasmania one of his classmates was future film star Errol Flynn. And Purdy died from an aneurysm while playing chess over the board, with his final words reported by Australian grandmaster Ian Rogers were “I have to seal a move”, and that Purdy “wasn’t even winning in the final position — Cecil wouldn’t have mistaken a drawn position for a winning position.”

Results are below.

Purdy Cup – final results

Below are the round 5 results and final standings for the Purdy Cup.
Well done to Tony Davis for taking out the event with a perfect score, and in doing so, has qualified directly for the club championship. I have also updated the Progress scores as well. My apologises for missing the last 2 rounds of this event, but family matters trumped chess (who would have thought!), so I did not get to post the round 4 results. Also, well done to Rory Wootten for coming equal second – his ACF rating should zoom up a few notches.
Next week will be the first of our Allegro tournaments (5 games of 10 minutes + 10 seconds a move), using the Najdorf Sicilian as our starting position. I did not choose this opening, but I have to admit that I have a long-forgotten pre-algebraic notation book on this opening – all hail to Bobby Fischer! So if you are curious about the club, next Tuesday will be a good time to come along and check us out.
