Nevada Open Championship, June 12-13, 1999

(Sponsored by Nevada Chess, Inc., directed by Allen Magruder (Open and U1800) and Dan Conver (Junior))

Glory to Gallegos in the Open Section!
Laymon outblitzes Jose and Zack in the U1800 Section!!
Oh boy! 16 trophies passed out in the Junior Section!!!

There's a phrase from a movie which became famous last year "Show me the money" and your reporter heard this phrase uttered at the end of this event, one of Southern Nevada's largest turnouts in a long time. A guaranteed prize fund of $1000 and 10 Novag Grand Prix points and three seperate playing sections attracted almost 80 chess players to the Community College of Southern Nevada on West Charleston for what I am going to call a Chess festival!

The Open Section

According to my count, 19 players entered the Open Section of tournament, which would decide who would be the Southern Nevada Champion going to Tonopah later this year for the State Championship match. There was 2 masters, 6 experts, and 11 class players. Among the new or returning faces were Jeff Gallegos (X), Mike Bruns (X), Gordon Barrett (A), Anthony King (B), Chris Petersen (A), Glen Buckendorf (A) from Idaho, Chris Bird (A) from England, and probably some others.

Your reporter wondered at the outset who would win. Would John Brown (X) win his third straight event? Would one of the masters, Peter Walsh or Denis Marrero stomp us all and win? Maybe Tom Thrush (X) would repeat as Tom Brownscombe did for years in a row? Or maybe some "A" upstart would upset the law of averages and gain all the money and glory? The answer to my question, I found out 5 rounds later.

Round One began with the usual carnage of the higher rated guys over the lower rated, except John Trivett (A) held Alex Herrera (X) to a draw minus his horse in a really crazy game and John Currell (A) played very solid in a bishop ending to hold John Brown to a draw. Thrush thought he was losing a piece, but instead he ended up winning one against Walter Henry (A).

In Round Two, Marrero, Walsh, Gallegos, and Bruns all moved to 2/2. Thrush may have had an elegant way to draw against Walsh at about move 35. Bruns was happy about his win over Herrera. Trivett mated Richard Wade (A) in 24 moves with the Evans Gambit, and the accompanying laughter that followed after 4. b4! Brown also won and joined Trivett at 1.5/2.

In Round Three, several of the key players took byes or drew. Marrero moved to 3/3 as Bruns flung his piece against a Scilian Dragon that held firm. Trivett found himself against Brown on Board Two and found the combination that netted an absolutely winning position but absolutely no time left in the sudden death time control to win, so he took the draw. Currell upset Thrush in an K+P ending. Bidari rolled over Barrett in 24 moves, so that left 5 or 6 players, half of them "A" upstarts poised at 2/3.

The fourth round pretty much cleared the air about the whole thing. First of all, the three Johns, Brown, Trivett, and Currell all lost to Gallegos, Bidari, and Bruns respectively, with only the solid Currell losing well into a K+P ending. At one point, your reporter thought it could be drawn. No more "A" upstarts. Marrero probably had a win at about move 46 with e6, but he played f6 and Walsh got his king back in time to take over a key square and win a thrilling rook ending, with both sides promoting passed pawns to queen. Walsh got the first queen check in and it was over. Barrett moved up from the cellar by accepting Peterson's piece to score quickly.

It's almost always in the last rount that things pretty much come to a head. No one single person was running away with the tournament. And we were looking at possible tie here for first place! Walsh and Gallegos were at 3.5/4; Marrero, Bruns, Bidari were at 3/4. Everyone else trailed a point or so behind.

On board one, Gallegos whipped out the Albins Counter Gambit and Walsh held firm for a while and commited a few small inaccuracies. Then there was a tactical sequence leading to Walsh having two minor pieces versus a rook+pawn and as Peter told me later "I played the blunder of the tournament, 28. Nb3??" Jeff mopped up after that with 29. Ne5 threating all kinds of knight forks. Game over. Jeff wins the money, the Southern Nevada Champion's trophy, some Novag Grand Prix points, and the right to go to Tonopah to play for the state championship. Marrero became heir apparent by defeating Bidari in 35 moves with his new found English Opening. Jorge Barrios (X) was having a difficult tournament and against him, Bruns sacced the exchange for a dangerous looking attack. Jorge beat it off with his usual very prophalactic style and although Mike had the pawns for the exchange, his position was untenable for an ending. On the next three boards, the three Johns all lost again! Unusual was Brown putting all of his pieces on the dark squares so that Barrett took the light squares for himself to win. Trivett had a brawl with Thrush and lost. Currell's position was constricted and shattered at the outset, but when it seemed he was about to unravel, he had no time left and so Bird won. King beat Henry in 24 moves and Buckendorf drew with Peterson.

In the prize distribution: Jeff Gallegos took first prize and the trophy with 4.5/5. Denis Marrero won the second place prize with 4/5. Peter Walsh shared third prize with Jorge Barrios, who was the top U2200 at 3.5/4. Gordon Barrett and Mike Bruns shared the U2000 prize with 3/5 And the three Johns? We finished all together at 2/5. We got no prize, but huh, a little glory.

U1800 Section

According to my count, 17 players entered this section, including newcomers, Zack Fahey (UNR), Michael Maguire (C), T Weiske (C), and probably some others. Jim Stuart (D), and Kerry Koenig, (C) returned after more than a year. There was many long games and the competition in this section was tough but the strongest players seem to prevail and dominate this event but there was a surprise in store at the end.

In round one, it went the stronger players won. Most of the games went past 40 moves. One game of note was Mike Cassidy's (D) game against Koenig. Mike's provocative style seem to have the advantage, but he played too fast and lost.

In round two, Francisco Vela (C) had Laymon McGauhey absolutely beaten with a queen for a bishop, but he played a howler that allowed a backrank mate. Chad Badgett played a beautiful game out of the Guocio Piano, saccing a rook for a winning attack in a trap that dates from the 19th century. Cassidy had an amazing attack going but missed the immediately beautiful coup twice and only on the third try did he get Rf6! winning.

In round three, McGauhey and Ramirez pulled away from the pack. Dan Fortney (C) won tactically over J. Narcisi (D) and he with Koenig who beat Badgett in 10 moves!, and some others lagged one point behind. Stuart seemed to have an edge throw his pawns forward but he fell to a kinghunt.

Ramirez and McGauhey drew in 56 moves in round four to go 3.5/4. Koenig took 64 moves to defeat Charles Hatherill (C) in minor piece ending, Charles playing to the bitter end in this key game. Fortney blew away Vela in style.

In the last round, McGauhey won a pawn from Koenig and then played too passively allowing counterplay in the ending. Kerry's 'a' pawn forced Laymon to eject his knight for most of the remaining pawns. The determination to win showed on the player's faces and they played until there was nothing left, both giggled and drew. Fortney's desperate bid to beat Ramirez ended in his defeat. And thru all of this, the third player, the unrated Zack Fahey scored 4 points and joined the winner circle with Jose Ramirez and Laymon McGauhey, all with 4/5. A blitz playoff was held. Laymon took a 2-0 lead over Zack and won the first game against Ramirez. Jose won the second game trying to mate McGauhey's lone king with his bishop and queen with flags hanging. Ramirez had to win 2-0 over Fahey to win but nervous put his queen en prise and Laymon got the U1800 trophy. Ramirez did win the second match game in the best played of the blitz playoff. Zack Fahey also won the 1st U1600. Kerry Koenig won the 2nd U1600 prize with 3.5/5. Of note, Alan Amici played both in the U1800 section and in the one day Junior event! The amazing 9 year old scored a credible 2.5/5.

Junior Section

This one day, five round G/40 is what made this look like a chess festival, with parents and children milling around all over at registration time. 40 children under the age of 19 entered this event and it. Ranen Lardent sported a large rating advantage and dominated this event with 5/5 clean score. Of note, Alan Amici played in this event and in the U1800 Section, taking only two byes! Sixteen(!) trophies were awarded. The list of trophy winners appears below.

I would like to thank the following people for their kind support of this event. Bill Goichberg, Frank Lassus, Allen Magruder, Dan Conver, Ken Sims, Norm Harvey, John Currell and all who participated and contributed to this fine event. Enjoy!
