Chess Association of Western Australia




2014 Perth Open


Played at North Woodvale Primary School on the 15th & 16th of February.



It was a delight to be part of the Perth Open with several players making the trip up from Albany and Mt.Barker and a visitor from New Zealand.

Out of the 29 competitors taking part we had the W.A Champion Tristan Boyd, W.A.Reserves Champion Gordon Dunlop, W.A.Womens Champion Aileen Fisher, W.A.Country Champion Jayden Williams and Australian Under 16 Champion George Carolin-Unkovich.

Two minor incidents, one, with a player short on time making an illegal move and the other a phone going off. Players need to learn not to play the Telstra Gambit because it never wins.

Thank you for making this a smooth running ,enjoyable tournament.
