Chess Association of Western Australia



2010 State Allegro Championship

Played at Legacy House on the 23rd of May 2010



There were 22 players in the WA Allegro Championship, which was enough for a good tournament. We started late, not for the usual reasons, but because I slept in and nearly got there too late.

The tournament was dominated by Michael Horstmann, Michael Wilkins and Thomas Donaldson who finished 2 points clear of the rest. In the end, Michael Horstmann won his third WA Allegro title, though he assured me that he had a little bit of luck along the way.

One unusual feature was the lack of ties amongst the rating prizes. Eugene Konovalov and Guy Booth were narrow winners of their divisions, Bernard Laugery continued his domination of the lower ranks, and George Carolin-Unkovich easily won the Junior prize.

By the way, if you check out the final standings, it looks like Behrouz Ghorbanian and Daniel D’Angelo entered but did not turn up to play. This is not so, and their inclusion was due to some confusion on my part. At least, no one received a free point because of this.
