TEAM QUICK-PLAY 2017

Played at the Courtenay Centre, Newton Abbot 29.10.17


Devon’s annual Team Quick-Play tournament, always a popular fixture in the calendar, has been attracting an increasingly large entry in recent years and it was gratifying to see 15 teams gather in Newton Abbot for the 2017 version. It was particularly pleasing to see teams from as far away as Seaton and Sidmouth in the East, Barnstaple and Bideford in the North and, as last year, even a visiting team from Weymouth in neighbouring Dorset. Other new teams were Torbay and Exeter University making a welcome reappearance in county competitions for the first time in decades. Also striking was the strength of the top teams with many of Devon’s best players representing their clubs.

Six rounds were played with each player having 12 minutes to complete the game. After a breathless afternoon of struggle Exeter club were convincing winners of the Thomas cup, climaxing their afternoon with a 4-0 demolition of a strong Seaton team. The hodge Cup for the best performance by a team with a total grade of less than 600 went to Exeter University B and the Graded Trophy was won by Sidmouth who really should have been called “Bacon” since their team consisted of Devon Junior Secretary Julian Bacon and his three sons Nicky, Olly and Benny! The best Indidual performance Trophy was won by International Master Jack Rudd of Bideford with a perfect six out of six, perhaps unsurprisingly since Quick-Play is Jack’s normal modus operandi!

The event was superbly controlled by Graham Mill-Wilson, a well-known figure in Bristol chess circles who has recently moved to Plymouth. Refreshments were provided by Newton Abbot Club members under the benign supervision of West of England Ladies’ Champion, Jacquie Barber-Lafon.

LEAGUE TABLES

 

DCCA 2017-18 season

Notes for team competitions

This year’s major change relates to time settings, where the AGM decided to move to using time increments. Our new “slow-play” rate means that each player starts with 90 minutes, with 30 seconds added after each move. Thus a 30-move game can last no more than 105 minutes each = 3½ hours, 60 moves no more than 4 hours’ total. We do not expect to hear that any game has been curtailed by caretakers waiting to close up; please advise well in advance if you foresee any issue here. The Newman league will see 2 games at 25 minutes plus 10 seconds’ increment.

In taking this route, we believe we are reflecting “where chess is going” at serious competitive levels. At the same time, we are aware that not all clubs are currently kitted out with DG clocks to allow these settings. While we expect to clarify this by the date of the autumn meeting, we would ask visiting teams to take a set of clocks for this season. We will not be sympathetic to complaints that sides could not agree on clock settings on the afternoon of a match.

One of the knock-on effects of using 30-second increments is that players are required to continue recording moves at all times. No debate, please – just make sure all your players are aware of this.

Gradings

Eligibility will be based on the August 2017 values. Please do not lose these values when ECF updates occur during the season.
