  1. 16th Chess Olympiad: Tel Aviv 1964
    *under construction*

    Australia's first chess olympiad!

    [Australian games only]


    For the first time Australia will be represented in a top international chess competition after a team leaves on October 31 for the 16th World Chess Olympiad in Tel Aviv, Israel.

    The competition will take place between November 3 and 23.

    The Australian team of six players will be led by the captain and manager, Garry Koshnitsky.

    Mr. Koshnitsky is Australian chess master and several times Australian champion.

    Other members of the team are: John Hanks, Australian master and a leading Victorian player; W. Geus, Victorian champion; Phil Viner, N.S.W. country champion, and two Sydney teenage chess champions, Max Fuller and Trevor Hay.

    The 19-year-old Max Fuller, a former Australian junior champion, is City of Sydney champion, and Trevor Hay, also 19 and another former Australian junior champion, is the only Sydney player who beat the Russian grandmaster, Alexander Kotov on his recent Australian tour.

    Israel will be the host to 48 countries, including Russia, the strongest team in the world.

    U.S.A. is expected to be a strong challenger, as its team includes the "world genius of chess", Bobby Fischer.

    Contributions from numerous chess supporters from all parts of Australia have helped pay costs.

    Substantial help has also been provided by Israel as host nation.

  4. 1871 New South Wales vs South Australia


    THE long-pending match by electric telegraph between the chess amateurs of New South Wales and those of South Australia, and which has excited a large share of interest in colonial chess circles for several months past, was commenced on Wednesday, the 24th instant, the Queen's Birthday.

    By the rules under which the match was played, and which have appeared in our columns, each colony was represented by a team of seven players, each pair of players having to play a separate game.

    The New South Wales men were - Rev. J. Pendrill and Messrs. F. J. Gibbes, C. G. Heydon, John M'Rae, Mark Russell, Thomas I. Ryan, and Robert Smith, with Messrs. James Buckland and William Crane, junior, as emergency men.

    The South Australian players were Messrs. A. H. Beyer, W. J. Fullarton, R. B. Hale, John Mann, W. D. Scott, R. M. Steele, junior, and S. Tyrrell. Mr. H. J. Thwaites had been selected as one of the Adelaide champions, but was compelled to withdraw through ill-health, and his place was taken by Mr. Hale.

    The South Australians were ably represented in Sydney by P. B. Walker, Esq., the honorary secretary of the Darlinghurst Chess Association, and assistant-superintendent of telegraphs ; whilst the same kind office was performed in Adelaide for the players of this colony by Charles Todd, Esq., President of the Adelaide Chess Club and Postmaster-General for the colony of South Australia.

    The telegraphing of the moves - at all times a trying and difficult task - was in the present match rendered especially so, in consequence of the unsettled state of the weather throughout the colony, and the enormous length of wire through which it was necessary to transmit the moves.

    It was calculated that each move travelled 1500 miles; and had to be repeated, thus making a total distance of 3000 miles.

    The moves were telegraphed at the Sydney office, by Mr. W. Wilson, the senior operator, and with such accuracy and success that we believe not a single error occurred throughout the whole day at the Sydney end.

    Our players assembled shortly after 10 a.m., and were paired by lot as follows :-

    Board No.1 Gibbes v. Steele

    Board No.2 Pendrill v. Mann

    Board No.3 Smith v. Fullarton

    Board No.4 Heydon v. Hale

    Board No.5 Russell v. Scott

    Board No.6 M'Rae v. Beyer

    Board No.7 Ryan v. Tyrrell

    Sydney had first move at boards 1, 3, and 5 ; Adelaide having the move at the other boards.

    - Australian Town and Country Journal (NSW) issue Saturday 27 May 1871




    THIS highly-interesting match was resumed shortly before 7 p.m. on Friday, the 2nd instant, and brought to a conclusion at a quarter-past 6 o'clock on Saturday morning.

    The final result of the match was as follows :

    BOARD 1) F. J. Gibbes (Sydney) won of R. M. Steele (Adelaide)

    BOARD 2) Rev. J. Pendrill (Sydney) won of John Mann (Adelaide)

    BOARD 3) R. Smith (Sydney) drew with W. J. Fullarton suc. by Steele (Adelaide)

    BOARD 4) C. G. Heydon (Sydney) won of Hale (Adelaide)

    BOARD 5) M. Russell (Sydney) won of W. D. Scott (Adelaide)

    BOARD 6) J. M'Rae (Sydney) lost to A. H. Beyer (Adelaide)

    BOARD 7) T. I. Ryan (Sydney) won of S. Tyrrell (Adelaide)

    New South Wales thus scoring five games, South Australia one, and one being drawn.

    The New South Wales players being Messrs. Crane, Gibbs, Heydon, M'Rea, Russell, Smith, and Wallach ; their Victorîan opponents being Messrs. Burns, Fisher, Goldsmith, Phillips, Sedgefield, Stanley, and Stephen.

    F. H. Dangar, Esq., of Sydney, acted as Victorian representative at this end, whilst the same office on behalf of New South Wales was performed by R. K. Hammond, Esq., of Melbourne.

    The duty of recording the time in Sydney was entrusted to Mr. J. M. Smith, of George-street, watchmaker, who provided stop-watches for the occasion.

    The match resulted in favour of the Victorian amateurs, who scored 3 games to their opponent's 1. The 3 remaining games being drawn.

  6. 1872 New South Wales vs Queensland


    This interesting contest was commenced on Monday [1st January]

    The players assembled at the Telegraph Office shortly after 10 o'clock, but play did not commence until 11 o'clock.

    Unfortunately, after a few moves had been telegraphed on each side, the players were informed of the unwelcome news that the line was interrupted, and play was not resumed until 2:30 pm after which it was continued until 6 pm, when, according to agreement, the players adjourned for refreshment.

    They again assembled at the Telegraph Office at 7:30 pm, but owing to a severe thunderstorm at Murrurundi no further progress could be made with the match, therefore at 9 o'clock the players dispersed.

    THE Fourth Intercolonial Chess Match, played under the auspices of the Chess Association of New South Wales, was commenced on New Year's Day, at the Electric Telegraph Office, Sydney.

    The match was played between seven representatives of New South Wales and an equal number of champions on behalf of Queensland, under similar rules to the last Victorian match, except that the time was extended to two hours for twenty instead of thirty moves.

    The players selected to do battle on behalf of New South Wales were Messrs. V. Brown, W. Crane, jun., F. J. Gibbes, C. G. Heydon, Thomas Lea, John M'Rae, and R. Smith; whilst Queensland was championed by Messrs. Adams, Bourne. F. O. Darvall, E. Deighton, Dixon, and J. F. Schofield. [& Francis]

    Mr. Charles S. Mein of Brisbane, acted as representative of this colony, the arduous duties belonging to which office he discharged with great satisfaction and zeal.

    Mr. Julius Lippman of Sydney, acted in a similar responsible position on behalf of the younger colony, and from his strict though courteous attention to the interests of the colony which he represented, contributed in no small measure to the pleasure arising from the contest.

    Mr. Wallach acted as timekeeper, and assistant representative.

    On drawing for opponents, the players found them selves matched as follows :


    Board No.1, Mr. T. Lea v Mr. Francis
    Board No.2, Mr. W. Crane, junr v Mr. Schofield

  11. 1875 Goldsmith-Fisher Match

    Mr. C. M. Fisher has arranged a match with one of the crack Victorian players.

    Through Mr. P. D. Phillips, the president of the club, Mr. Fisher sent a challenge to play a set match with the strongest Melbourne player.

    The gauntlet thrown down was promptly taken up by Mr. L. Goldsmith, the holder of the Challenge Cup, who may, perhaps, be considered the champion of the colony.

    The terms are as follows:-

    The player who first wins five games to receive the stakes, £20 a side. Play to commence Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock, and to be continued every day, except Saturday and Sunday, at the same hour, until the match is finished.

    One game to be played at each sitting, with a time limit.

    Each player being required to make thirty moves in two hours.

    Mr. Fisher was strongly opposed to playing for money, we are informed, but his opponent would not consent to meet him unless the substantial stake mentioned in the conditions above was attached to the honour of victory.


    For some time past, an exciting chess contest has been carried on at the Melbourne Club between Mr. C. M. Fisher of Sydney and Mr. L. Goldsmith, the well-known Melbourne cricketer.

    The match, which was for £20 a side, was to be decided in favour of the winner by the first five games.

    The Sydney man carried off the laurels of victory after a tough fight, as the subjoined score will show:-

    Mr. Fisher won five games, lost four; Mr. Goldsmith won four games, lost five; Three games were drawn.

  13. 1887 Australian Championship

    The entries for this important event to the chess world of Australia closed in Adelaide on the 10th inst., with 10 nominations for the major tournament, and the same number for the local or minor tournament. The majority of the competitors in this event will secure prizes, as these are seven in number. Although in the major tournament a larger number of competitors was hoped for, the committee may be congratulated on the success of their efforts in bringing together the best chess players in the Australian colonies, New South Wales, Victoria, New Zealand, and South Australia being represented.

    For the first prize, carrying with it the championship of Australia, Mr, Charlick's chance is most esteemed here, and his zeal and services for many years to the cause of chess render him worthy of it. The play of Mr. Esling (the Victorian crack, as the papers here have christened him) is highly thought of, and Messrs, Gossip and Heiman are next in favor. The last-named gentleman has been playing remarkably well of late, and will be very dangerous. It was not to be expected that all the finest players in the colonies would find it possible to take part in the tournament, but the absence of Messrs, Chamier, Crane, and Russell, of New South Wales, and Messrs, Fisher, Burns, and Stanley, of Victoria, so well-known in intercolonial contests, is much regretted, although it is to be hoped that the competitors will not allow this feeling to influence them to the extent of injuriously affecting the play. Messrs, Heiman, Gossip, and Tullidge have already arrived from their respective colonies, and the rest of the Victorian contingent are expected on Monday.

    All the arrangements for play, which commences on Wednesday next, are completed. A large room has been secured in the town-hall, which, however, has this drawback, that it is not well lighted in the day-time. The Governor, Sir William Robinson, will open the proceedings by making the first move at board No, 1.- Argus.

  14. 1888 Australian Championship
    [By Telegraph] (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.)
    MELBOURNE, Friday.
    A large meeting of members of the Melbourne and Victorian chess clubs met at the Thistle Café to-night to welcome the players from the adjacent colonies, and also from Ballarat and Warrnambool, who have come to take part in the Major tourney of the Centennial Chess Congress.

    In consequence of the smallness of the entry, there being only eight in the competition for the Major Tournament for four prizes and the championship of Australia, the committee have resolved to avail themselves of their right to modify the rule in reference to drawn games counting half to each player. They had decided that in case of drawn games the players should be required to play another game, the result of the second game to determine the result of the round.

    Eight competitors then drew, the result being as follows :

    First Round. Higgs v. Stanley, Charlick v. Tullidge, Hay v. Lampe, Brocklebank v. Crane.

    Second Round. Tullidge v. Higgs, Lampe v. Charlick, Crane v. Hay, Stanley v. Brocklebank.

    Third Round. Higgs v. Lampe, Charlick v. Crane, Hay v. Stanley, Brocklebank v. Tullidge.

    Fourth Round. Crane v. Higgs, Stanley v. Charlick, Tullidge v. Hay, Lampe v. Brocklebank.

    Fifth Round. Higgs v. Charlick, Hay v. Brocklebank, Crane v. Stanley, Tullidge v. Lampe.

    Sixth Round. Brocklebank v. Higgs, Charlick v. Hay, Lampe v. Crane, Stanley v. Tullidge.

    Seventh Round. Higgs v. Hay, Crane v. Tullidge, Brocklebank v. Charlick, Lampe v. Stanley.
