Reports WYCC2008



The last 6 weeks of the final preparations/arrangements was in it self very demanding besides the additional complications caused by certain CHESSA executives. We were all ready and Friday arrived with great expectations for all. We arrange a informal farewell get together at the airport before departure.


The dress code was track suits for all players on departure, all players conformed and we looked great and professional on departure. We flew to Singapore, we had a connecting flight to Saigon. On Arrival at Saigon we were met by the Vietnamese Chess organisers and were welcomed and handed a bouquet of flowers. At the airport I was interviewed by the National Television and M Solo and Andrea Hoek were also interviewed.
The bus trip to our Hotel was a 3 hour trip which was an education in itself as the roads were extremely busy and scooters are the main means of transport. The organisers booked us into a different hotel for the 1st night so I had to reorganise our group to fit into the rooms that they had available for us. The following day we departed to our main hotel Cap Saint Jaques. The hotel accommodation, service and food were excellent. At the hotel the organisers arranged volunteer’s to assist us where ever possible which was great.
The opening ceremony was excellent; it was televised live on the national T.V. M. Solo with 3 other players from different countries also took part in the ceremony. Afterwards they had a huge firework display.

The tournament went well with the players and coaches falling into a daily routine. Anton Salverdo assist us with the coaching which was a great help as the coaches were overloaded, each coach was assigned 8 players.

The playing venue was split up into the main venue and adjacent to this venue they had a hall where the U16 Boys and U18 boys and girls played. The main venue was air conditioned with the adjacent hall only having fans. It was not ideal but all players had the same playing conditions.
We entered a team to take part in the talent evening, Sonia Scholtz, Thala girls, the Nel twins and Mikail Mendes took part in a very well performed dancing routine, they finished in 5th place and did us all proud and in the process won 400 Euro’s. Well done!!!
The culture evening was magnificent; it was also televised live on the National T.V.
During the off day we arranged various outings for everyone. We also arranged a scooter bike outing which was a great experience and enjoyed by all.
The closing ceremony was great, even though we are not in contention for medals it was good to be part of the ceremony.
Attached is the coach’s report and mails that I received. I would like to congratulate all the players on there performance you all did us pride with your performance and also your over all behaviour through out the event.
The memories, the Vietnamese people will always be part of us and something special that we will treasure.

Recommendations:

We need continuity each year, so I would strongly recommend that the management team i.e. manager and coaches serve a 2 year cycle as the 1st year a lot of experience is gained which can be used and improved on in the 2nd year. Also in the 2nd year the team that will be taking over for the following year can feed off from the current team. We need to properly plan and implement this for all our management teams for all international events.

The ratio for players / coaches is still a problem. I would suggest that we look at different options with how we coach the players. We can do individual coaching for the stronger players but do group sessions with the weaker players which could be managed better with 2 coaches assigned to the group coaching sessions.
We need to accommodate U8’s at the SAJCCC and look at sending a U8 team.
Lastly I would like to take this opportunity of thanking CHESSA for the opportunity of managing our Junior National Team it was a great experience and privilege. To all the players, parents and accompanying people thanks for making this trip a great success.
Yours Sincerely

Kevin Jurrius

Head of Delegation South Africa




Coaches Report – World Junior Chess Championships, Vietnam 2008
First of all I want to thank South Africa chess for giving me the opportunity to coach the Junior South African team in Vietnam 2008. Vietnamese Chess Federation did an excellent job in organizing the tournament. Everything ran smoothly, was on time and worked well. The opening and closing ceremony was also a treat. Kevin Jurius (manager) did a great job in organizing the South African team. There was a great team atmosphere with lots of laughter, hard work and entertainment.

Thanks to all the coaches that put in a great effort, lots of hard work and good preparation for the games. I would definitely recommend any of the coaches (Paul, Anton and Malcolm) again for an International Event, especially with all the experience and knowledge they gained from this event. I was very impressed with the team of coaches.

The software (chessbase10 and mega database) was a great idea and helped us a lot of the preparation of games. I think this should become a standard to give to all coaches in future International events.
Every coach had 8 players to coach and is doing a little report on each of their players and their best game of the tournament.

Here follows my players that I coached in Vietnam:


Daniel Barrish u/8 boys: With a top score for the South African team with 6,5 out of 11 he is a great talent for the future. Daniel came 21st in the tournament and was very close on making the top 10 where he lost a game in round 10 where he missed a win. Ratingperformance 1465

Problems:


  • Lack Opening knowledge.

  • Too much parent involvement making the coached job harder.

  • Losing winning games and positions due to lack of international experience.

  • Lack of Endgame knowledge.

  • Basic chess missing


Recommendations:


  • Chessbase must definitely be a tool that the coaches and players must use in the future.

  • Opening Repertoire must be set up by each player to make the coaches’ job easier.

  • Maybe look at another international tournament like Dubai Open as a warm-up tournament for the players.

  • Preparation must start much earlier on openings and endgames.

  • A syllabus that can be used throughout South Africa to get all the players on the same level and know the basics.

Thanks for Kevin Jurius for organizing an excellent tour and making it a very enjoyable tour.

The trip to Vietnam was lengthy and exhausting. The trip started early Friday morning and end Saturday afternoon. Players rest before attending the opening ceremony on Sunday evening.

1St round was challenge with the heat wave reaching 35deg C.A lot of players under-perform as they wear out.

Amra was the first and only one to score in that round.

2Nd round players had promising positions but could not convert it to an advantage.Jeena+Tlale T open their account.
3Rd round saw Solo+Tlale S opening their account. The players now got used to the weather and the high level of competition.

4Th round, due to double round and lack of rest led to a dismal result to most South-Africans.Nel+Naidu open their accounts and Solo+Tlale S each drew.


5Th round. This round was particular good towards the older kids. Spectacular wins from Solo+Naidu against opponents rated 2100&1900 respectively Tlale also won easily.The other players failed to their seasoned opponents.
6Th round Weather cooled because of plenty rain. A social&talent evening followed by a day off awaits the players.1st casualty is Solo followed by Naidu. The females shared their excitement with their opponents, except for Amra that grind a rook+minor piece ending to win on time.

7Th round A lot off South-Africans are paired.Jeena played confidently which was rewarded with a win against Tlale T.Most of the players played to fast which led to negative results. Their performance could possibly be link to the break they had.S Nel won a hard fought game.Naidu+Solo+S Tlale+Amra lost badly.A sad day for chess in the South-African camp.

8Th round Here a bye came in handy for Naidu as he celebrate the Hindu religous holiday Tlale also benefit from a bye. The rest i'm afraid all came second.

9Th round South-africa seems to suffer from a black colour complex. The black pieces failed to find a suitable defense against white's attack. Exception is T Amra who won brilliantly in an offence positions Tlale also won in record time; could CHESTER be the reason?


10&11Th round saw no upsetsRd4 .If you stronger than your opponent you win. Most players suffered from chess fatigue and conceded draws or lost.
The game I choose is that of M Solo and Getz of Norway with a rating of 2176.

GENERAL

The following important observations were experienced and therefore I would like to use this opportunity to recommend the following issues to CHESSA.



  • Most of the players were under prepared for World Cup level. (Especially openings)

  • Overall lack of endgame technique and patience. They move too fast in good endgame positions and misses the essence of the position.

  • A lot of the players are used to 60/60 games in S.A. during which they don`t have enough time in the endgame.

  • Lack of sustained concentration. They focus for 60 min. maximum and then their thoughts wander and they walk around in playing  hall, watching other games instead of concentrating on their own.

  • Lack of mental and physical fitness. They can`t maintain their best form for 11 tough rounds and 11 days.

  • I strongly recommend that players must have a laptop or chess file with a detailed opening repertoire for top level chess with solid lines against stronger opposition and aggressive lines for must win situations. Coaches can then check and rectify.

  • Players must not only fulfill the normal selection criteria but must also adhere to a minimum standard. (Like athletics for example) They should pass certain workshops, exams consisting of important tactics, endgame play,middlegame ideas etc.

  • Players should be identified 12 months prior to the tournament and coached via workshops at least once a month to improve their playing ability.

  • Participation in longer tournaments for example S A open 11 rounds is important.
  • Please feel free at any time to contact me regarding any chess related queries.


Thanks

Anton Goosen

 

 

 




COACH’S REPORT - PAUL MCAVOY

OVERVIEW


The opportunity to once again represent South Africa at this event was a challenge which I relished. Having been closely involved with the selection of the players for international participation this year, it was a group with which I felt a certain affinity; this despite the fact that I was an unknown quantity to many of the group, having coached only a few of the more experienced players in the past. I would like to thank CHESSA for putting their trust in me once again.

Open 10

Andre displayed an understandable degree of inexperience at this, his first international event. He showed a willingness to learn and understand which does give cause for optimism that he would fare better were he to qualify in the future.

His level of preparation before the event was satisfactory. He has a basic understanding of the lines he is playing, although his grasp of positional concepts is shaky at times. In both games he won he was in an inferior position, which shows that much work awaits if Andre wishes to be competitive next time round. Andre must seek greater self-discipline during testing games as part of his improvement plan.

Although the above paints a bleak picture, Andre always approached his sessions with me in an enthusiastic manner. This meant that the coaching was constructive throughout. Andre has significant scope for growth given his achievements to date. He will without question remain a factor within his age group in South Africa, as evidenced by his victory (given below) over a compatriot in Round 8.
