Wow! Great news from a world-class event, submitted by the World Champion!
Thk you very much, Alex!

I have tried to arrange the final standing in right order here:

1. Mustafa Durdyev 30, TUR
2. Ron King 29 , BAR
3. Tom Watson 24, SCO
4. Bagtiyar Durdyev 23, TUR
5. Shane McCosker 22, NIR
6. James Grant 20, SCO
7. Joe Sloan 20, SCO
8. Paraahat Durdyev ??, TUR
9. Myles Hannigan 19, NIR
10. Colin Young ??, SCO
11. ???
12. Danny Oliphant 18, SCI
13. Charles McKenna 17, NIR
14. Brian Lucas 15, ENG
15. Tommy Canning 15, IRL
16. Frank Bednall 13, ENG

I believe this is:

1. The first tournament Ron King did not win in two or maybe three years,
2. The strongest event this year so far, even stronger then the US nationals

To me it shows:
1. The race for the WCDF Qualifier is still open, now more then ever before.
2. The Qualifier will certainly be the best tournament this year.

I want to congratulate Mustafa, who already won the British Freestyle Open in 2003. Now he won his first major 3 move tournament, ahead of a world-class field, showing that the future of draughts/checkers will be younger and not centered around the anglophone countries anymore.

Also I sent a special congratulation to Shane McCosker, who "only" finished 3rd at the last Junior World Chamionship in Prague.
He proved that he indeed is master.
Now you see how good the event in Prague 2005 was on the top of the Junior event, and imagine, he only finished third. How strong would the others have been ?

I can't wait fo the games and for the games, reports and final standings of the Qualifier that is under way now.

Mustafa is now the new man in the yellow jersey for this event, but with Borghetti, Docherty, Rawle Williams, Jim Morrison, Richard Beckwith and Rawle Allicock in the field it looks mighty hard to win for anybody...

Postby tommyc on Thu Jul 27, 2006 10:28 am

I guess you would have to say Ron King was unlucky in the Brit Masters ,troubled with the wrong travel arrangements ,moving house and losing the 1st game to Charlie Mc Kenna to say he was annoyed when it came to the last round and Charlie by a strange twist was playing Mustapha who duly offered him a draw in game 2 Charlie accepted not knowing that Ron now cannot catch Mustapha not to mention the 35 minute time clock penalty against King when playing Tom Watson......It just wasnt gonna be his Ty. Taking nothing away from Mustapha he was a worty winner on the day....Congrats to him.

All in all tho the Ty ran smoothly apart from the odd lil hick-up.There was a few items that need tidying up, like the player with the white side not always noting the game etc...one suggestion i would make re this would be that the referee/controller be charged with ensuring (in as far as is possible) that this be checked upon at regular intervals.This would save any later dispute or disruption in the playing arena.

Finally a fantastic Ty. for 19 yr old Shane MC Cosker in his 1st Major Ty.... he certainly gave a fine performance as did young Bashim Durdyev.

Not only was Ron King unlucky in the British Open according to what tommyc said, but also it seems he was up against the entire Durdyev family. Mustafa won 12 points off Bashim, Paraahat, and Bagtiyar. Bagtiyar won 8 points from Bashim and Paraahat, and Paraahat won 4 points from Bashim.

There isn't very much refs can do to stop this from happening but it

Those who were not there should not throw the first stone!

I met the Durdyevs in Prague, and their games were definately not arranged, as then Baghtiyar would have been tied with Jim Morrison.

I believe that it is simply hard to win against your older brother, so it does not work, especially if you want it too much as you r trailing him...
In Prague Baghtiyar lost their second game, because the pressure was very tense, but both games were hard fought.

And another observation:
Baghtiyar seems to play better then Mustafa at the Qualifiers, even if Mustafa had a very succesfull "warming-up". Maybe this is also explainable by a psychological influence.
At the QT they played 2-2, although this only helped Ron King to further widen the gap, so your argumentation vanishes like ice in the sunshine if you just look deeper!

Anyway:

I don't think you just blame them because they r brothers and a threat to the established forces ?
I met them and I think you r completely wrong!
Of course they r ambitious and proud of their family, but they also want their own individual success. Like any younger brother wants to be better then his older brother.
But this can also be a psycological burden sometimes...

Nothing moves faster then light, except bad rumours!!

British Open

Postby liam stephens on Fri Jul 28, 2006 7:49 pm

Irrespective of the British Open results, surely the critics must now concede that the adoption of the "points per game" system in 3 move tournaments was a faulty policy, and reduces the proceedings of such events to the level of a lottery. The time is ripe for the governing bodies to re-introduce "round scoring" in 3 move events. That would be a vast improvement, and is the system already in use for the US Nationals. It is also the system adopted on games sites such as Kurnik and BrainKing.

With such a handicap to overcome, it is amazing how Ron King managed to catch up to within a single point of the winner.

Does any one know the outcome of the GA meeting of the WCDF - what decisions were reached etc.
I was hoping to learn if our European partners had been encouraged to adopt the 3 move restriction at least for their national tourneys and if they had adopted a more generous time limit approaching that of 30 moves per hour.

Yes, well said. In 3 moves restriction style there is no such object as game, but ballott ! In my strong opinion, an ideal scoring and the only fair system is - scoring per ballott.

All ballotts are uneven anyway, although with different scope - it is already lottery. Scoring per game only increases the "lottery factor" !

Objection!

We don't know the ballots the players had.
Maybe Mustafa had to overcome the handicap?
How do you know that Ron King had the "worse" ballots ?
So this example does not prove anything.
