I think this is wrong. Michael is still in UAE, playing in the World Youths. He has byes in rounds 1 and 2 at Hastings.

Don't think Daniel was playing in Al Ain, Sean, just there observing and possibly coaching. Wasn't he coming back today? So he could be in Hastings for the first rd tomorrow.

I guess he might have applied for byes in advance as 'travel insurance' ..(!)

You're correct about Daniel, and he is already in Hastings, ready to play in round 1. However, Michael is still in UAE and won't be in Hastings until round 3..

It's a shame that Simon Williams is now not in the draw, as he always provides great entertainment !

Ah - sorry Sean - you're quite right, I hadn't noticed it was Michael you were talking about, not Daniel. Anyway, here's hoping they both go well in the tournament.

in case anyone is curious.

Simon Knott's easy draw with White on top board has to be the least surprising "first round surprise" result imaginable - see his White draws with Howell, Eduoard, etc in previous years at Hastings.

Just a random question about consistency from one tournament to the next:

At the London Classic Open I asked for a half point bye in round 6. I made this request after 3 rounds. I was the 28th seed and only on 2/3 so hardly a massive threat to come first. My request was deemed reasonable by the arbiters, but ultimately declined by the powers that be, and I was told I would be defaulted for that round. Many half point byes were meanwhile granted to players who aren't GMs.

However, here at Hastings a GM has been granted half point byes for both rounds one and two. Are these matters decided by the whim of the organiser?

Keith Arkell >here at Hastings a GM has been granted half point byes for both rounds one and two. Are these matters decided by the whim of the organiser?<

Usually the organiser, but he may delegate to the chief arbiter. Nick Pert is recovering (we hope) from ill health. I regard it as rather valiant that he is trying to make it back from Ireland for the third round.
GMs often receive start money in events. If they don't appear for a round, without a very good reason, then they can expect to be penalised. I have no idea why you wanted the half point bye in round 6 of the LCC and thus cannot possibly usefully comment.

Most (all?) round 1 games are available from the pairings section of the website. Games pgn at the top of the screen allows you to download.

I think it depends on a number of things, including:-

- the published rules of the event in question
- whether a player is in receipt of conditions
- the amount of notice given
- the reason for the bye request

One then has to take a holistic view based on all of the facts.

I would hope that two players in the same event with the same circumstances would get the same answer. Of course, that answer might vary in a different event because the rules / conditions may well be different.
