Chess Association of Western Australia




2013 Perth Open


Played at North Woodvale Primary School on the 13th & 14th of April.



Held at the Perth Chess Club, on behalf of the Chess Association of Western Australia Inc, the Perth Open attracted an excellent entry of 39 players!

Accelerated pairings for the first two rounds was generally very well received (as it has been in the Perth Club Championship) with less predictable results in the early rounds than usually occurs from normal pairings.

Tristan Boyd finished 1st on 5.5 (drew against Ian Sutton) with Eddy Seah half a point behind in 2nd. Gordon Dunlop and Natalie Maris finished equal 3rd ahead of many higher rated players.

George Carolyn-Unkovich (age 14) had another great weekender again performing over 1900. Sri Krishna Kousel Dharmapuri (age 10) defeated Wolfgang Leonhardt (1878) and Jon Chandler (1797) and drew with David Ellis (1995).

Norbert Muller did a great job organising such a successful tournament with assistance from John Brooke.
