2012 Kingsley Open


The first Grand Prix event for 2012 - the Kingsley Open (6 rounds) was played over the weekend on 18th & 19th of February at the Moresby Street Centre in Kensington.

Though the turnout of 16 was disappointing, we did have a few new faces, which is always a good thing.

Tristan Boyd was playing in his first tournament for some time but, if he was worried about being rusty, it did not show in the results. Tristan played seeds 2 through 6, plus George Carolin-Unkovich, and only conceded one draw to David Ellis, in the last round.

Marc Vlietstra kept Tristan honest, winning every game apart from his Round 4 loss to the eventual winner.

Two of our new faces, Jose Madriaga and George France, won rating prizes and hopefully we will see them again, in future tournaments.

I would like to thank Gordon Dunlop, for taking over the DOP duties for a few hours on Saturday afternoon, so that I could return home and look after my Junior Club. Fortunately, there was not much for me to do in this tournament, as I slept most of Sunday.
