Redux: Hamilton Chess Quads May 16, 2009 Second Round Game Diamondback vs Leon Wu

Here is some analysis of my game as white against Leon Wu , in the second round of the May 16, 2009 under 1400 Swiss which was part of Hamilton Chess Quads.

Tacital Analysis by Fritz 8 version.

The orignal post with the game without analysis can be found at Resilient Chess Players, These Young Kids.

Disclaimer: In the previous post Resilient Chess Players, These Young Kids I reported that the Hamilton Chess Club Quad TD stated that because of the limitations due to some tables taken out by Hamilton Township, he would have to use a cutoff rating if the number of participants were greater than 40 players.

I only posted part of what the TD told me so let me clarify, if the number of playres are 40 or more than a type of Triage Ratings cut off list would be used.

Masters and Experts will get priority according to Ed the TD,even if they call in prior to the pairings being made pairings would be made based upon that phone call, they don't have to be there physically to register, also looking at the quad pairings in April 2009 it would seem for that month, the cutoff ratings would be around 1350 or lower.

But if there is a greater influx of lower rated players than the cutoff rating would be much lower.

One way to judge what the cutoff ratings would be for players not to be paired up is to look at the 44 players that came in April 2009 and take a look at the ratings in the lower rated quads....diamondback
