Sorry for the delay, they turned off the Internet at 5:00 pm, while GM Yermolinsky was grinding down IM Duong in a rook ending--the last game of the tournament.  What price art?


Congratulations to GM Bu Xiangzhi, 44th Canadian Open Champion.

July 5th.  The girls' under 14 tournament is over.  Dalia Kagramanov and Catherine Frenette

will have a 2-game playoff for 2nd and 3rd places at the same time other sections are playing their 6th and 7th rounds.


There were questions about the pairings in the boys' under-14, round 5.  Frankly, the pairing looked funny to me (accustomed to North American pairings), too.  But let me explain. Because there is no program which will do North American pairings perfectly, I have used a program which in over 10 years of use is renowned to do FIDE (World Chess Federation) pairings perfectly.  FIDE pairings are very complex for the user to understand.  They are written for computers (or computer programmers).  But in this particular case, I do know why the #1 player with 4 did not play the #2 player with 3 points.  It is because in round 3, the #2 player with 1.5 points met a player with 2 points.  In FIDE language, that is an "upfloat".  The FIDE system, with some limits, likes to minimize or equalize floats.  It does not like for one player to be floated in the same direction multiple times.  As for the other pairings, give me some time to work that out, and please cancel the next tournament, too.  This upfloat factor also explains the funny pairing in Round 3 of the Boys Under-18.


In brief, the pairings are all done by SWISS-46.  The only input I have is to determine who

gets a half-point bye, if any.  Otherwise, these are perfect FIDE pairings.


How many participants?

July 4

Good news!  Starting today, parents and siblings are encouraged to use the Canada Room (on the same level as the Ballroom).  So it is no longer necessary to use the cramped Burgundy Room upstairs.



 July 3rd.

FQE and (CMA + 150) ratings used for pairing, if no CFC.

Standings after round 2.  Pairings will be posted at 9:00 am

July 2nd


Northern Ontario updated.  There are about 14 CMA players and 2 FQE players without

CFC ratings.  I will assign them a rating for pairing purposes after entries are closed.  Still

184 entries.


July 1st



Ratings have been updated to reflect the June 27th CFC list TDLIST from the CFC website.  However, any changes made after that date (June 29th, for example) are not shown and

may have to be added by hand.


June 30th

Deployment of round-robin sections, ready for drawing of lots before the 1st round.

Deployment of Swiss System sections.

The table could be used by participants to verify their identification:

Name, rating, CFC number, section (!)


Based today's data, with 184 total entries.


If any of the RR sections grow to more than 8 players, the

software will automatically convert them to Swiss.
