1421 Giovannilandian Chess Championship

BG8umA0.png?1

The 1421 edition of the Giovannilandian Chess Championship has started today! Some background information can be found in this recent news post, but in summary it's one of the largest and most famous tournaments in the entire country, with thousands of fans coming every year. The tournament is taking place in Sonserina, a city in Varevenna Province that is also the national capital of chess.

In the opening ceremony, Prime Minister Amore Gil Albrecht visited the tournament venue and gave a short statement: "I hope that the 1421 edition of our national Chess Championship can be as successful as the previous ones ever since 1354, when the tournament first started and I was still a child. Good luck to all the players, who have already proved their chess skills in province-level competitions, and will certainly show them again in the national championship! May the best chess player win, and may we hopefully see some rising chess talents. For Giovanniland!"

Following the Prime Minister's speech, each player showed up carrying a flag of their province as the crowd cheered for each of them. Finally, in the last major event of the day, the groups for the championship's group stage were announced. The 36 players were drawn into six groups of six, by selecting one player from the six ranked pots, to which players were allocated according to their rankings: 1st-6th best into the first pot, 7th-12th into the second, and so on. The groups are listed in the table below, together with the schedule of matches. The schedule and brackets were also revealed and is shown after the table.

"So, here are the results from all the matches played yesterday and today!" said Vanessa. "I'll start talking about Group A, which was the only group to have all matches result in draws in Matchday 1. Barbara Erwaide-Albuquerque drew with Arthur Koymkabé de Silva, which was expected due to their similar ratings, however the lower-rated Zilda Varynebarr Schmidt and Amanda Girveandre del Valle were some of the main upsets of the day as they managed to draw with the two Grandmasters of the group. In contrast, Group B was the only group to have no draws, and the matches there were mostly normal according to ratings, except for Cynthia Valkyrie-Liangzhou defeating the higher rated Miriam Caetano-Aguamyr. Group C also had most of its matches go as expected, with two wins and one draw." Vanessa stopped for a bit and sipped a cup of coffee.

She continued: "However, if the three first groups went mostly as expected, the three last ones were full of upsets. In Group D, the defending champion Lavinia Paschoal-Harveyn was only able to draw the untitled player Erasmo Jacques-Antenor, while the other Grandmaster of the group besides Lavinia, Guillermo Uryth-Amorim, wasn't lucky either as they lost to lower-rated Armando Gogmos Vieira. In Group E, Grandmaster Roberto Nyima Hatyanunik's draw against CM Theodoro Ximenes-Virya was also an upset, just like Grandmaster Rodolfo Lavrendal Higashi's draw against CM Sergio Upandhya-Zarya in Group F. Other matches went more as expected, and this marks the end of my comments about the matches."

Carlos Nakamura-Edristyn then presented the rankings:

Carlos said: "In the rankings, to be honest, we can't really see much as it's only the first day—a player in first place in their group due to only one win could turn out to be last by the time the group stage ends. If someone doesn't remember how places are calculated, it's simple: a win in a chess match gives one point, a draw gives half a point, and a loss gives none. The usual tiebreakers are: higher number of wins, lower number of losses, head-to-head score and finally ELO rating. Because we're on the first matchday and all the first three tiebreakers still result in a tie, players are listed by higher rating. Anyways, that is all for today! The players will now rest for a day and then play their next matches on June 20th and 21st, which means our next Chess Report will be in three days. Stay tuned!"

Vanessa started presenting the results: "Eighteen matches were played yesterday, just like on the first matchday, in which the competitors played two matches between each other—one as Black and one as White—in order to even out the results, and then the results added up to earn the final score: two wins or one win and one draw lead to 1-0 for the better player, while two draws or one win for each lead to a 1/2-1/2 points draw. Anyways, now talking about the results themselves. Group A was able to get past its drawish first matchday with two wins and one draw today, going as expected according to chess ratings. In this group, all players still have good chances since the first matchday was solely composed of draws. However, Group B was more interesting, with a big upset in the match between Grandmaster Milton Arruda-Kandray and Candidate Master Tania Uryth-Andolina that resulted in a draw. This means that Tania and Vania Garvandell-Edristyn—who drew against Cynthia Valkyrie-Liangzhou—were able to recover from the previous day's loss. However, Miriam Caetano-Aguamyr, who lost against the youngest tournament member Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk, is now in jeopardy and must earn good results in the next few matches if they want to have a chance at winning the Championship."

She continued: "Group C had two draws and one win, the win happening on the match between Grandmaster Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa and Vitor Yorbal-Allamand for the former. This means that Vitor has lost twice in a row and is not in a good position, but all other members of the group are more or less fine. A similar situation happens in Group D with Ivete Trieste-Belchior, who lost another match, in a group that was the only one of the day to not have any draws. Group D also saw the rebounding of the defending champion Lavinia Paschoal-Harveyn, who won yesterday after an upset in Matchday 1 that resulted in her drawing her lower-rated opponent. Meanwhile, Group E was similar to Matchday 1's Group A, having all of its three matches resulting in a draw, including two upsets in which Grandmasters Giovanni Amdo-Gyamtso and Roberto Nyima Hatyanunik drew against their opponents. Finally, Group F featured a match between two of the tournament's under-20 members, Rodolfo Lavrendal Higashi and Aurelio Vindamir Orpheus, which resulted in a draw. Other matches in that group went as expected, with now twice-defeated Sebastian Glendurianth in jeopardy of being eliminated if they don't have good results in the next matches. Now, we'll present the rankings!"

Carlos then presented the rankings "In the previous Chess Report I said we couldn't really see much as it was only the first day. Now, with two matchdays finished, the bigger picture begins to unfold, and we can already see who is on the route of advancing to the knockout phase, and who could possibly be eliminated. Still, it's too early to tell for sure—there are still three matchdays left. Anyways, the players will now rest for a day and then play their next matches on June 23st and 24nd, which means our Chess Report has ended and the next one will be in three days. Stay tuned for more news about the Giovannilandian Chess Championship!"

Vanessa started commenting on the results: "Matchday 3 saw a higher amount of wins and a lower amount of draws compared to the previous two matchdays. No group had its matches only result in draws, while Groups B and D did have all of their matches result in wins for either side. Anyways, we're doing something different today, and commenting on the reverse order in relation to that of the previous Chess Reports. Starting with Group F—this group saw two wins and one draw, which went fairly as expected if we take a look at ratings, with the two grandmasters reaffirming their strong position in the group by winning their matches. However, Group E saw some upsets today, such as the draw between Grandmaster Roberto Nyima Hatyanunik and Ricardo Kharventhin-Derval, with a difference of 400 points between their ratings. Furthermore, still in the same group, the lower-rated Theodoro Ximenes-Virya was able to defeat Ulysses Anairyth-Sousa. Going on to Group E, this was one of the two groups to not have any draws as I said earlier. Matches went mostly as predicted, except for the upset when Armando Gogmos Vieira defeated the higher-rated Demetrio Carvalho Qwarnyi."

She stopped for a while and then continued: "Meanwhile, just like in Group E, Group C was also full of upsets today. Both grandmasters of the group, Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa and Julieta Quintana-Altadia, were not able to win against their lower-rated opponents, instead only managing to draw. Finally, Group A saw a match called by some as the biggest upset of the tournament so far—Grandmaster Catia Thuryn-Garavand's defeat against Candidate Master Arthur Koymkabé de Silva, with a difference of 248 points, beating the previously biggest upset, a match between Guillermo Uryth-Amorim (2541) and Armando Gogmos Vieira (2296) that resulted in a win for the latter despite being 245 rating points lower. However, today's match was even more surprising as Catia could not win in either game that composes a tournament match, meaning that she lost both with white and black pieces. And finally, did you notice I skipped Group B? That is because all matches there went as expected, so there's not really much to comment. Moving on, my colleague will present the updated rankings!"

Carlos started speaking as the rankings appeared in the screen: "One more matchday has passed, and we can see the bigger picture unfolding as I said in the last Chess Report. In order to remind everyone, in the Giovannilandian Chess Championship the top two of each group and the four best 3rd-placed players advance to the knock-out stage. In Group A, the four top players seem still capable of entering the knockout phase if things go well for them—but Amanda Girveandre del Valle and Zilda Varynebarr Schmidt are trailing behind and must fight back if they want to advance. As for Group B, Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk has built a clear lead and has almost surely guaranteed a spot in the next phase, but not much can be said for the rest, as only one point separates the 3rd player from the last."

He sipped a cup of coffee before continuing: "Meanwhile, in Group C, we can see five of the six players still aiming for the coveted spots, but Vitor Yorbal-Allamand has been all but eliminated, not even able to fight for a 3rd place spot, because the currently 3rd-placed player Clarissa Queiroz Froulyansk has a better win rate. The same can be said for Sebastian Glendurianth and Candidate Master Ivete Trieste-Belchior in Groups F and D respectively, groups in which the other players have close point differences and still have fair chances. Finally, for Group E, it seems that every player could still qualify, although some must hope that their possible 3rd-place ranking is better than in other groups. This happens due to the highest rate of drawn matches out of any group of the tournament—only three out of nine matches haven't resulted in draws. Anyways, this is it for our Chess Report of the day. Our chess players will play the Matchday 4 during the weekend (June 26th and 27th), so stay tuned to watch their games live and see another edition of this report once they end!"

"Hey there Giovanniland, guess what time it is? Yes, it is 5 PM on a Sunday, but also time for another Chess Report! I am your host Vanessa Desniowynsk, and together with my colleague Carlos Nakamura-Edristyn, I'll present the match results and group standings for the games that happened during June 26th and 27th for Matchday 4 of the Giovannilandian Chess Championship, as the group stage soon draws to a close.

Vanessa started commenting on the results: "So, remember when I said Matchday 3 had a lower amount of draws compared to the other matchdays? Well, I'll have to correct myself now. Matchday 4 beat its predecessor by only having a total of three draws on all 18 matches! Furthermore, four of the six groups had all of their matches result in wins for either side, about which we will talk now. Onto the actual results: Group A was probably the only group that went totally as expected if we look at ELO ratings. In this group, Grandmaster Catia Thuryn-Garavand was able to recover after last matchday's upset, while former group leader Candidate Master Arthur Koymkabé de Silva did not hold on to their position as they lost to Grandmaster Antonio Sonsyrenne-Wilsim. Meanwhile, Group C had some upsets, as neither grandmaster in this group could defeat their lower-ranked opponent, something that also happened in Group E, in which Grandmaster Giovanni Amdo-Gyamtso drew with International Master Ulysses Anairyth-Sousa. Otherwise, the other matches of these groups also went as expected."

"However, the upsets I mentioned above were nowhere close to what happened in Groups B, D and F, in which all top-ranked grandmasters of these groups lost to their lower-ranked opponents—Grandmasters Milton Arruda-Kandray, Lavinia Paschoal-Harveyn, and Jurandir Delchiaro lost to International Masters Miriam Caetano-Aguamyr, Demetrio Carvalho Qwarnyi and Aurelio Vindamir Orpheus respectively. This comes off as a surprising upset for many chess commenters and viewers, since it includes a former champion and the current defending one. Furthermore, these groups also featured Candidate Masters Tania Uryth-Andolina and Sergio Upandhya-Zarya losing to lower-ranked Vania Garvandell-Edristyn and Sebastian Glendurianth respectively, but those were all the interesting results today, since the other matches had expected results. Therefore, my colleague Carlos will now present the results!"

Color key:

 Color  Meaning
  Player has guaranteed qualification to knockout phase
  Player achieves at least 3rd place; can be eliminated if doesn't finish among the four best 3rd-placed
  Player still in the fight for the qualification; can be eliminated if finishes outside top 3 of their group
  Player already eliminated from advancing

Carlos then started talking: "Anyways, I present the rankings after Matchday 4! You will notice they have some special colors, whose meanings can be seen in the color key above, indicating the status of players regarding qualification to the knockout phase. In order to remind everyone, in the Giovannilandian Chess Championship the top two of each group and the four best 3rd-placed players advance to the knock-out stage. We'll start talking about Group B, which features the only player that has completely avoided elimination—Grandmaster Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk—who is also the only to have won every single match so far. Grandmaster Milton Arruda-Kandray from the same group is also in a good place, but should aim to win the upcoming match against Gustavo if they don't want to be relegated to 3rd place and rely on other 3rd-placed in the case International Master Miriam Caetano-Aguamyr wins their last match. Group B is also the only group to have only one already eliminated player, as 4th place Cynthia Valkyrie-Liangzhou and 5th place Vania Garvandell-Edristyn are still in the fight to achieve one of the four best 3rd place spots."

He sips some tea before speaking to the viewers again: "Moving on, we have Groups A and C, which all have the same amount of players in each category: one guaranteed to have at least 3rd place, three still in the fight for qualification, and two eliminated. Group D has a similar distribution, except that there is one more player with the light-green classification and one less with the yellow one, and features some interesting rankings: not only Armando Gogmos Vieira at the top, but also defending champion Lavinia Paschoal-Harveyn at the risk of being eliminated. Finally, Groups E and F have the exact same rankings by points, but some differences in the distribution of wins, draws, and losses, which means they have a different number of players in each category. Group E has three players with guaranteed 3rd place at the least, and the other three already eliminated. This is due to the fact that, if 3rd place Roberto Nyima Hatyanunik loses and 4th place Ulysses Anairyth-Sousa wins, they would have the exact same statistics and then Roberto would win due to a higher ELO rating. But that is not true for Group E: if the same happens with 3rd place Aurelio Vindamir Orpheus and 4th place Pietro Maldonado-Violetshire, Pietro would knock Aurelio out of the top 3 due to a higher amount of wins."

He concludes: "Anyways, this is it for our Chess Report of the day. Our chess players will play the Matchday 5 during June 29th and 30th, so stay tuned to watch their games live, including the interesting matches between the two Grandmasters of each group!"

Vanessa started talking as the results appeared on the screen: "Look what do we have here! There isn't a nicer way to ending the group stage other than not only matches between the grandmasters of each group, but also lots of interesting results and upsets. So, leaving the more interesting matches for last, we have Group C first—there were two draws and one win in this group, whose matches went more or less as expected. The same happened in Group E, except that there were two wins and one draw; and Group F, in which no match resulted in a draw. Moving onto Groups A, B and D—all of them had some interesting matches, such as the lower-ranked grandmasters defeating the higher-ranked ones. This includes Grandmaster Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk, who defeated Grandmaster Milton Arruda-Kandray and continued his win streak that encompasses all of the tournament so far. Perhaps more eye-catching, though, was the fact that defending champion Grandmaster Lavinia Paschoal-Harveyn lost to Grandmaster Guillermo Uryth-Amorim, meaning that Lavinia has now lost twice in a row and has been... eliminated from the tournament! You will see more about that right now, when my colleague Carlos presents the rankings and qualified players.

Qualified Players:

A CM Arthur Koymkabé de Silva 2 1/2 2 1 2 ranked by ELO points:

B Vania Garvandell-Edristyn   2 1/2  2 1 2
E  GM Roberto Nyima Hatyanunik  2 1/2 1 3 1 ranked by number of wins

Carlos then started presenting the rankings: "Here are the final group stage results, as this part of the competition has now ended! Sixteen players have qualified, of which nine are Grandmasters (out of 12 in the competition), three are International Masters (out of seven), two are Candidate Masters (out of eight), and the other two are players with no title (out of nine). Some unexpected results were, for example, Amanda Girveandre del Valle recovering from early lost matches in Group A and ending up advancing instead of Grandmaster Catia Thuryn-Garavand. For Group B, it is worth noting that the first place, Grandmaster Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk, has double the points of the second place, Grandmaster Milton Arruda-Kandray, cementing his achievement of being the only player in the tournament to not have drawn or lost any matches. Funnily enough, Milton barely made it in due to having a higher rating than 3rd placed Vania Garvandell-Edristynwho then also missed qualifying by having a good third place finish due to having a lower rating than Group A's Arthur Koymkabé de Silva."

"Moving on to Groups C and D, these groups have a similarity in the fact that both of their top two players each have the exact same stats. In Group C, it was the rating that decided the placement—unlike in Group D, where the head-to-head result played a more important role. Group D is also worth mentioning due to the fact Vanessa already mentioned, the elimination of the defending champion after two upsets. It's something we haven't seen in a while!", he exclaimed and then continued speaking. "Group E was one of the groups that only sent two of its players to the round of 16, due to the fact its third-placed player, Grandmaster Roberto Nyima Hatyanunik, had the worst finish compared to his counterparts in other groups. While in Group F, the players expected to qualify did indeed achieve a spot on the knockout stage, such as former champion Grandmaster Jurandir Delchiaro. Finally, we take a look at the comparison of third-place finishes of each group—we can see it was pretty close, with number of wins and even ELO rating needing to be used since a lot of players had the same amount of points. Now, I present the long-awaited knockout stage brackets! Let's take a look at the upcoming matches."

PrOwsQi.jpg

"Here we can see each side of the bracket. One side looks a tad stronger, with five Grandmasters, two International Masters, and one Candidate Master; while the other contains one less Grandmaster and one less International Master, with those places being filled by the two players with no title that qualified for this stage. There are several matches between grandmasters, as well as some other matches with a stronger side if we go by rating, but with an unclear result given that some of the lower-ranked qualified players have successfully pulled upsets in the group stage. Anyways, that's it for our Chess Report of the day. Watch the remaining chess players play these matches on the July 2nd and 3rd, and stay tuned for another Chess Report in three days!"

"Hello there to all viewers in Giovanniland and elsewhere! Welcome to another edition of the Giovannilandian Chess Report! In this program, myself (Vanessa Desniowynsk) and my colleague Carlos Nakamura-Edristyn will continue to present information about the Giovannilandian Chess Championship—and this is a special report since the first matches of the knockout phase happened yesterday and today. I'll present the match results, while Carlos will talk about the updated bracket and upcoming matches. Let's start!"

GM Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa, 2675

GM Jurandir Delchiaro, 2787
3 - 0
GM Julieta Quintana-Altadia, 2576

Vanessa then started talking as the screen showed the results: "Before I go into the results themselves, I think it's good to explain the way the overall knockout stage works. So, unlike in the group stage where only two games happened in each match, the round of 16 had four games for each match—and in the upcoming quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals it will only increase, with 6, 8 and 10 respectively. The number of games is always even so players can have equal chances by playing with the white and black pieces. These four games are of the classical variety, taking longer to be finished. However, if the total of points reached by both players is equal (all draws, one win for each and two draws, or two wins for each), the players then break the tie by playing rapid games, which have a faster time control. Two of these games happen, unless the players also draw—then more rapid games are played until one wins, i.e. sudden death. Note that, if one of the players reaches a total of points that is impossible for the other to overcome in the four main games, the remaining ones will not be played—and that is why you see some scores whose total points result in 3 and not 4 if added together."

She sipped a cup of coffee before continuing: "Anyways, now let's talk about the actual results. Four matches happened in each side of the bracket and were all equally interesting. In the first match, Grandmasters Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa and Antonio Sonsyrenne-Wilsim won two games each and went to a tiebreak, in which Carlos won one rapid game and the other was drawn, thus giving the quarter-finals spot to Carlos. The second match was played between Grandmaster Giovanni Amdo-Gyamtso and Candidate Master Arthur Koymkabé de Silva—Giovanni won two games and the other was drawn, so not even all four games were needed and Giovanni won the overall match. Moving on, we had another duel of Grandmasters, this time Milton Arruda-Kandray and Guillermo Uryth-Amorim. In a surprising upset, Guillermo was able to eliminate Milton from the competition after an initial draw and a fierce tiebreaker, whose two rapid games were won by Guillermo, even though he had a disadvantage 160 ELO points. Finally, to close off the first side of the bracket, there was a match between International Masters Aurelio Vindamir Orpheus and Demetrio Carvalho Qwarnyi, with the latter winning three games and drawing the other one, thus advancing into the quarter-finals."

"That's not all, though! There was also the other side of the bracket, with four other matches, and its first match was played between International Master Clarissa Queiroz Froulyansk and Amanda Girveandre del Valle. This was another upset from today's matches, with three draws at first, and only in the last game was Amanda able to win against Clarissa and thus earn a quarter-finals spot. She will meet the winner of the other match that resulted in a upset today, Grandmaster Rodolfo Lavrendal Higashi versus Candidate Master Theodoro Ximenes-Virya, in which the latter won a closely-fought tiebreaker despite having nearly 300 less ELO points. But if the two first matches of this side of the bracket were pretty close, the two others were pretty far from it. Grandmasters Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk and Jurandir Delchiaro both decisively won against their opponents Armando Gogmos Vieira and Grandmaster Julieta Quintana-Altadia respectively, with a final score of 3-0 in both matches, meaning that not even all four games had to be played."

Carlos was then given the floor: "And now, we can see the bracket in full, with the names of the eight players that advanced to the quarter-finals! Comparing the title distribution of players in the round of 16 and now, five out of nine Grandmasters advanced, while the other three were all equally divided into the remaining categories: one International Master (formerly three), one Candidate Master (formerly two), and one player with no title (formerly two as well). In the bracket itself we can see some interesting matches. For example, the upcoming duel of Grandmasters between Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk and Jurandir Delchiaro—the player with an uninterrupted win streak of six matches so far, and the player with the highest ELO rating not only of the tournament but also of Giovanniland as a whole. Another interesting match will be Amanda Girveandre del Valle versus Candidate Master Theodoro Ximenes-Virya, which will ensure that at least one non-Grandmaster appears in the semifinals. Anyways, that's it for our Chess Report of the day. Watch the remaining chess players play the quarter-finals matches on the July 5th and 6th, and stay tuned for another Chess Report in three days!"

"Hey there Giovanniland, and welcome to the latest edition of the Giovannilandian Chess Report! I am your main host Vanessa Desniowynsk, and here is my colleague Carlos Nakamura-Edristyn that presents this report together with me. We'll continue to present information about the Giovannilandian Chess Championship until it finishes—and today we have some interesting information about the quarterfinals that took place yesterday and today. I'll present the match results as usual, while Carlos will talk about the updated bracket and upcoming matches. Without further ado, let's start!"

GM Giovanni Amdo-Gyamtso, 2678

GM Jurandir Delchiaro, 2787
3 (6) - 3 (5) 
GM Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk, 2601

Vanessa started talking about the results: "Here are the results of the four matches played as part of the quarterfinals! All of them started on July 5, but the two matches that needed tiebreakers were only finished on the following day. Before I talk about details of each match, I'll remind everyone of the overall knockout stage works. Unlike in the group stage, where only two games happen in each match, the number of games per match increases as we go further—round of 16 had four, quarterfinals had six, semifinals will have eight, and the grand finals and 3rd place match will have ten. These are classical style games which take longer, but if a draw happens the players switch to rapid game tiebreakers, which are initially two but may need as many as possible until the tie is broken."

She continued: "Anyways, moving on to the actual results. In the first side of the bracket, three Grandmasters and one International Masters played their matches. Grandmasters Giovanni Amdo-Gyamtso and Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa played a close match, which was expected given that they only have a difference of three ELO points in their rating. Giovanni initially won one game and drew other three, but Carlos then turned the tables and won the two final games to achieve a spot on the semifinals. The other match was played between Grandmaster Guillermo Uryth-Amorim and International Master Demetrio Carvalho Qwarnyi. Guillermo easily won, drawing the two initial games and then winning all others."

Finally, she paused for a bit while the screen switched to the other results: "In the second side of the bracket, the matches had results way closer than those of the first one. The match between Candidate Master Theodoro Ximenes-Virya and Amanda Girveandre del Valle had three wins for each side, resulting in a tiebreaker in which Amanda upset the match by winning both rapid games. Therefore, Amanda is the only non-Grandmaster player remaining in the tournament. Meanwhile, a duel of Grandmasters happened between Jurandir Delchiaro and Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk—the player with the highest ELO rating of the tournament, and the player with an uninterrupted win streak of six matches before the match—and was closely watched by thousands of spectators. In an unparalleled feat within this tournament so far, Jurandir and Gustavo not only drew all six classical games, but also drew 10 rapid games before concluding the tiebreaker, despite a large difference in ELO rating. Jurandir was able to win the eleventh rapid game and thus advance to the semifinals."

Carlos was then given the floor and started to present the updated bracket: "Four players have been eliminated in the quarterfinals, and four players remain! Here in the bracket we can easily see who has advanced and who will play with who. Let's compare the the title distribution of players between the quarterfinals and now. Firstly, three out of five Grandmasters advanced, which was the highest that could happen since two Grandmaster-only matches happened yesterday and today. Secondly, the only International Master and Candidate Master that had qualified to the quarterfinals were also eliminated. However, the only one player with no title managed to stay, meaning that there is one non-Grandmaster in the semifinals, something that doesn't happen often. The semifinals will feature one duel of Grandmasters, namely between Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa and Guillermo Uryth Amorim, while in the other side of the bracket Amanda Girveandre del Valle meets Jurandir Delchiaro. Anyways, that is all for today—the remaining players will now rest for a day, and then play the semifinal matches on the July 8th and 9th. Our Chess Report will have another edition soon after that, so stay tuned!"

"Good afternoon to the viewers from Giovanniland and elsewhere! We are just starting our Chess Report that happens every three days, and today we will cover the results of the Giovannilandian Chess Championship's Semifinals. I am your host Vanessa Desniowynsk and together with my colleague Carlos Nakamura-Edristyn, I'll present the match results and brackets, as well as some highlights from the weekend. Without further ado, let's start!

  GM Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa, 2675  
4 (1/2) - 4 (1 1/2)
GM Guillermo Uryth-Amorim, 2541

GM Jurandir Delchiaro, 2787
5 1/2 - 1/2
  
Amanda Girveandre del Valle, 2301  

"Here are the results from the two the matches played yesterday and today!" said Vanessa. "We can see that they have pretty different results, and I'll talk about them in detail. On one side of the bracket, there was a duel of Grandmasters between Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa and Guillermo Uryth-Amorim. Like all semifinal matches in the Championship's recent history, they played eight classical games; four on each day. Carlos won the first two, followed by three draws, a point at which spectators said it was unlikely for Guillermo to come back. However, he managed to win the following game, draw the penultimate one, and win the last one, ending the eight games with four points for each. The rapid game tiebreakers resulted in a draw at first, but Guillermo also won the latter one and thus advanced to the finals.

She then commented on the other game: "In the other side of the bracket, a match between Grandmaster Jurandir Delchiaro and Amanda Girveandre del Valle was played, with a ELO rating difference of nearly 500 points. Therefore, it was unsurprising to see that Jurandir easily won the match, drawing only one game and winning five others. The fact he snatched this early win meant that not all games needed to be played. Jurandir then earned the other spot on the finals, while Amanda will play the 3rd place match. Now, onto the updated bracket!"

Carlos then talked about the updated bracket: "After the semifinals, we await for the last set of matches starting in two days. Two Grandmasters out of the three competing in the semifinals won their matches and thus earned a spot on the grand final. These two players are Guillermo Uryth-Amorim, a seventeen year old rising star in Giovannilandian chess that even managed to defeat the defending champion Lavinia Paschoal-Harveyn during the group stage; and Jurandir Delchiaro, three times former champion and the player with the highest rating in this tournament. Meanwhile, on the battle for the 3rd place, Grandmaster Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa and Amanda Girveandre del Valle will have a chance to rebound from their semifinal losses, in a match that has a fair ELO rating advantage for Carlos, but still one worth seeing, given the fact that Amanda has achieved some upsets during this tournament. Both matches will contain 10 classical-style games and then rapid game tiebreakers if needed, with five games on each day in order to give the competitors some rest. Anyways, that is all we have to present for today! I am sure you are all awaiting for the last two matches of the tournament, and so are we, so don't forget to watch them! And stay tuned for the final edition of our special Chess Report, live from 5 to 6 PM at July 12."

"Hello there to all viewers in Giovanniland and elsewhere! Welcome to another edition of the Giovannilandian Chess Report! In this program, myself (Vanessa Desniowynsk) and my colleague Carlos Nakamura-Edristyn will continue to present information about the Giovannilandian Chess Championship, namely the 3rd place match and the final. I'll present the match results, while Carlos will talk about the final results and overall ranking of players. Let's start!"

3rd Place Match   

  GM Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa, 2675  
6 - 4
Amanda Girveandre del Valle, 2301 

Final

GM Jurandir Delchiaro, 2787
5 (2) - 5 (3)
  
GM Guillermo Uryth-Amorim, 2541 

"Here are the results from the two matches played yesterday and today!" said Vanessa. "Just like in the semifinals, in which there were also two matches, they had different results. However, the final and 3rd place match were composed of 10 games each, unlike the semifinals with 8. Firstly, I'll talk about the 3rd place match. In this match, Carlos Neuryanth de Sousa played against Amanda Girveandre del Valle, both coming from a loss in the semifinals. In the last report Carlos said that this would be "a match that has a fair ELO rating advantage for Carlos, but still one worth seeing, given the fact that Amanda has achieved some upsets during this tournament." It was indeed a match worth watching, with a very close result—Amanda initially won two games, followed by one Carlos win and four draws. However, Carlos was able to turn the tables towards the end of the match, winning the last three games and thus earning 3rd place in the competition. Still, this was a very good finish for Amanda as well, as she never got past the group stage in almost all championships she played—her best result before was a round of 16 finish in 1417. Meanwhile, for Carlos, 3rd place was also the best result, as his debut in the 1420 tournament was ended by that year's champion Lavinia Paschoal-Harveyn on the quarter finals."

She then commented on the other game: "Meanwhile, the final was played between two Grandmasters. Jurandir Delchiaro had a higher rating and was regarded as the favorite to win the match, especially due to being a three times former champion. However, the other player Guillermo Uryth-Amorim defeated higher ranked players such as defeat the defending champion Lavinia Paschoal-Harveyn during the group stage, so his performance could not be underestimated. In a very close match, the ten classical games played during the July 11th and 12th resulted in three wins for each site, and four other draws. Therefore, a rapid game tiebreaker was needed to find the 1421 Champion. After four draws, Guillermo was able to win the fifth game, thus winning the match and the tournament. This was Guillermo's debut, and a very successful one, as no other champion in the tournament's history has won in the same year as their debutexcept, of course, for the winner of the 1st championship Thais Antenor-Verdi. For Jurandir, however, he wasn't able to add another championship wins to his tally that includes the 1405, 1413 and 1414 championships, with his 2nd place finish equalling the previous year, in which he lost to Lavinia.

36 CM Ivete Trieste-Belchior D 0 0 0 5

Carlos then presented the final ranking of all players: "With the tournament coming to an end, we can finally present the final ranking! Firstly, it's worth noting some important details. For the players who advanced to the knockout stage, their wins, draws and losses on this part of the competition are also added to their record—and note that matches decided in tiebreakers are counted as draws. Therefore it was possible for some players to end the tournament undefeated, for example Gustavo Takeda-Bwaryk, who lost his quarterfinal match against Jurandir Delchiaro after a close tiebreaker. Secondly, there were some interesting features of this ranking. One of them is the fact that the winner, Guillermo Uryth-Amorim, has half a point less than the runner-up Jurandir Delchiaro, due to their previous matches' results. The highest number of points was achieved by Jurandir, with seven points, while the lowest goes to Candidate Master Ivete Trieste-Belchior, who did not win or draw any game, something not seen in a championship since 1396. This is all for today, although the leaderboard is publicly available for anyone who wants to search it to find out about more specific records. Unfortunately, the end of the competition also means that our Chess Report has come to an end, but fret not! We will resume our normal program about sports in Giovanniland and the world, and perhaps soon cover other national championships of other sports. See you!"
