Maritime Open 2014 (Fredericton)  October 10/11–13, 2014
Winner: Adam Dorrance.
View the CFC Cross Table.

Report from Fred McKim (16 October 2014):
The Maritime Open this past weekend attracted 28 participants to St Thomas University in Fredericton.
This year may have been a passing of the torch as 16 year old Adam Dorrance from Annapolis Valley, NS took first place with a score of 5.5 out of 6. The field included a stunning total of 6 master players. Adam is not new to success as he tied for 1st two years ago (but lost on tie-breaks) and finished ½ point out last year. At the youth level, he was the Canadian U-14 National Champion in 2013, and has had numerous successful results at the National Chess Challenge. Next year he will be able to try and defend on his home turf, as the event will be in Halifax.
Tied for 2nd / 3rd place prizes were former champions, Elias Oussedik (Moncton) and Robert Hamilton (Fredericton).
Other prize winners included Sam Song (14 & under), George Hensel (Under 1800), Scott King (Under 1600), Leo Cui (Under 1400), Alexandre LeBlanc (12 & under), Cynthia Cui (Female), Brandon MacDonald & Thomas Myatt (18 & under).
Participants came from NB (Fredericton 13, Saint John 4, Moncton 4), Nova Scotia (6), and Prince Edward Island (1).
I'm hoping to make it out to Halifax next year for what should be another great event.

Greg Johnson (d. 8 June 2014):   
The Nova Scotia Chess Association would like to express condolences to the family of Greg Johnson. From Eskasoni, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Greg was an avid, active chess enthusiast who played recreationally right up to the day of his passing. Most recently he played in the 2013 Cape Breton Open tournament.
Obituary
JOHNSON, Gregory Urban -- Greg Johnson joyfully ascended to the spirit world on June 8, 2014, at 8:27 a.m. He was a dedicated member of the Baha'i Faith, of which he spoke passionately.
Born in Chapel Island, he was the son of Margaret (Johnson) Morris and Edward Paul.
His family knew he was gifted because he spoke Mi'kmaq when he was six months old. People would come from all around to see the baby who could speak his language fluently. He worked hard all his life. As a youth he and his brother, Ernest, cut lumber, fished and hunted with their grandfather, Noel. He went to the Maritime School of Social Work and was a social services officer for all of the reserves of mainland Nova Scotia. He was one of the founding members of the Union of Nova Scotia Indians and Mi'kmaq Family Services. Greg had his practitioners license in NLP and compassionately worked with people who had been through traumatic experiences. He was a self-taught electrician and he set up radio stations on native reserves throughout Eastern Canada. He worked for the Eskasoni Band in numerous departments and was instrumental in major developments throughout the community. Greg especially enjoyed telling stories to friends, family and guests. He was a recreational pilot who loved to fly. He liked to metal detect, pan for gold, play chess, carve, go camping, and he loved to study the history and language of the Mi'kmaq people.
Greg is survived by his wife Linda Gray; his children, Margie, Rosie (Clarence), Mary Belle, Greg Jr., Jared and Quanah; his brothers, Ernest (Miney) Johnson, Cameron Paul, Membertou), Peter Paul, Eskasoni; his sisters, Katherine Sorbey (Listiguj), Loretta Sylliboy, Eskasoni; his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Greg was predeceased by his first wife Cecelia May Johnson and his sister Catherine Googoo, Membertou.
Visitation will take place today (Tuesday, June 10, 2014), starting at 9 a.m. onward in the Baha'i Center, Eskasoni. Funeral service to take place 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 11 at the Baha'i Center. Online condolences may be sent to our web page at www.chantfuneralhome.com.

Carlos Jauregui (d. 8 March 2013):   
The Nova Scotia Chess Association would like to express condolences to the family of Carlos Jauregui. Originally from Chile, Carlos moved to Canada in the mid-1970s and for a time lived in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Most recently, he lived for a short period in Dartmouth, NS while visiting his daughter there. During that time he played chess occasionally at the Bluenose Chess Club. For his chess playing, Carlos is perhaps best known for winning a game of chess against Bobby Fischer in 1959 in Santiago.
Obituary
JAUREGUI, Carlos -- 80, died Friday, March 8, 2013, in Milan, Italy. Carlos was a highly respected physicist, university Professor, Chess Master and Translator. In Chile, he worked at the University of Chile until 1974 when he moved to Canada with his wife Nelly and four children. In 1974, he started teaching at the Coast Guard College in Sydney until his retirement in 1993. His passion for chess was unparalleled. He travelled the world representing Chile playing chess tournaments, but his biggest accomplishment in chess came when he beat Bobby Fisher [sic Fischer] in 1959. Carlos was auto-didact and a lifelong learner. He spoke several languages fluently, loved classical music and politics. He was charming, kind and very generous. He shared his knowledge willingly with others and always helped the less fortunate. He was one of a kind and will be sorely missed by us all. Carlos is survived by his daughters, Marie-Claire, Jacqueline and Virginia; his grandchildren, Cristina, Diana, Thomas, Victoria and Richard, and great-grandchildren, Alexander and Daniel. The funeral took place in Milan, Italy Tuesday, March 12.

Active Tournament (Halifax)  September 30, 2012
Note from tournament organizer Chris Felix:

I will be running an active tournament on September 30 at MSVU Rosaria 4th Floor. This tournament will be held in conjunction with the kids NSSCA tournament, and any of the kids attending are welcome to join our group. The event will once again be unrated, so CFC membership is not required.

As we will be in the same room with the NSSCA tournament, note that the noise level may be a bit higher than we're used to. Regardless, I encourage everyone to come out and play some chess!

The entry fee will be $5, and all money collected will be given back as cash prizes for the winners. Registration is between 12:00 and 12:30, and games starting at 12:30.

Time controls will be game in 25 minutes, with no increment or delay.

Format will depend on number of entrants. Most likely it will be a 4 or 5 round swiss, and running roughly till 5pm.

UPEI Fall Quick CHESS Tournament (Charlottetown)  Saturday, September 15, 2012
Note from tournament organizer Fred McKim:

Last reminder for the quick chess tournament this Saturday at UPEI. Each player has 30 minutes per move. If we have enough digital clocks, I am hoping to play with 25 min and a 5 second delay. This would be the first use of delay/incremental time controls in a tournament here in PEI (or perhaps even Atlantic Canada).

At the moment I have 11 confirmed entrants with at least another 3 or 4 ranging from maybe to probable..... Remember $5 entry fee discounts if you pre-register by Friday.

For those younger players, who haven't played in CFC events before, probably a CMA rating of 700-800 would be a starting point for those interested in coming out. We have a good mixture of adults and kids playing.

Tata Steel Chess Tournament 2011 (Wijk aan Zee)  14–30 January 2011
The 73nd Corus Chess tournament will be held from 14 January - 30 January 2011 in Wijk aan Zee.

Quoting from Rob's Chess Blog: (now apparently defunct)

The traditional Corus Chess Tournament in Wijk aan Zee, Netherlands gets a new name. The 73rd edition will be named Tata Steel Chess Tournament and it will take place from Friday January 14 until Sunday January 30, 2011.
The international famous chess festival, also referred to as Wijk, started in 1938 as Hoogovens Schaaktoernooi and when in 2000 Hoogovens and British Steel started to cooperate it continued as Corus Chess Tournament.

World Chess Championship Match (Sofia, Bulgaria)  23 April–12 May 2010
Participants: Veselin Topalov and Vishy Anand. Some details here. As always, TWIC is an excellent resource. The first round takes place 24 April 2010 (opening ceremony on the 21st); the games start at 15:00 local time in Sofia (9:00 am ADT - note that Sofia will be on Summer Time by then). The opening round start date of Saturday, April 24, is a delay of one day from the originally scheduled April 23, since the volcanic ash over Europe caused serious delay in GM Anand's arrival in Sofia. I think the first game begins at 11 a.m. ADT, but the following games will begin at 9 a.m. ADT. The official site is here.

Tuesday, 11 May 2010: GM V. Anand defeated GM V. Topalov in the 12th and final game of the regular games portion of the match. The 12th game win was the first in the match with the black pieces. Congratulatinos to GM Anand on retaining the title of World Chess Champion!
