Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-28-06  Cecil Brown: This is FM Richard Britton, sometime Hull top board. http://grading.bcfservices.org.uk/g...

It's not his fault as he wasn't even involved in the match shown below, but his club have withdrawn from the Woodhouse Cup in a strop.

The bone of contention was the Hull board order in the Hull A vs Wakefield A match on 29/10/2005 shown below.

29/10/2005 Hull A 4.5 3.5 Wakefield A
COOPER JG 183 1 0 BABENKO S 191
CULKIN SJ 163 0 1 SHAW P 184
GARDINER EF 166 0.5 0.5 DENISON DM 165
ATKINSON JW 172 0 1 CUARESMA B 156
STEPHENSON DW 142 0 1 SENIOR PM 147
WESTRA RD 177 1 0 TOULSON DV 127
HAILSTONE CJ 166 1 0 SKINNER S 126
BYCROFT JG 175 1 0 TINKER CR 117

Most leagues have a rule stating that you have to play a team in order of strength, the YCA is just the same.

It has to be said that Hull's board order in this match was dodgy. Hull's second and third highest rated players were on board 6 & 8 ?! They both enjoyed 50 point + grading advantages and both won.

Instead of awarding boards 6,7 and 8 to Wakefield straight away the league controller actualy bothered to email the Hull captain and ask for an explanation.

He got no reply.

I think boards six, seven and eight were then awarded to Wakefield giving them the match.

Hull then threw a hissy fit and refused to play their last three matches last season.

The issue came up at the YCA AGM, I wasn't there and I don't know what happened.

But after about three weeks of rumours and speculation it has been announced that Hull have withdrawn from the Woodhouse Cup.

Bunch of cry babies.

  pawn to QB4: Well said Cecil. Their decision to withdraw had no connection with the fact that - after Hull had won this league about 10 times on the trot - York and Sheffield had been wiping them out in recent years. Who needs Topalov and Kramnik anyway, we can have a good controversy at home.
