Chess Association of Western Australia



2012 State Allegro Championship

Played at the Moresby Street Centre, Kensington on the 20th of May 2012



We continued our trend of small fields with only 14 players. Still, it was a nice pleasant Sunday afternoon and most people seemed to enjoy themselves. One who didn’t was Boyd McCamon who was so disappointed with his score after 5 rounds that he withdrew.

Marc Vlietstra and Michael Horstmann had a close struggle all day and finished well ahead of the rest of the field. Marc rode the advantage that he gained by beating Michael in round 3 all the way to the title. He did stumble somewhat in the last round, drawing with George Carolin-Unkovich, but Michael was unable to beat Ihsan Ferozkohi and draw level. Congratulations to Marc for becoming 2012 WA Allegro Champion!

There was an intense battle for third place, with Jose Madriaga just taking the honors. Ihsan Ferozkohi did not do himself justice this time, being rocked by early losses to Aileen Fisher and Adam Kelly (good results for them, not so much for Ihsan).
