Chess Association of Western Australia

2019 South of the River Open

The 2019 South of the River Open (5 rounds) was played from 10 July to 7 August.


The inaugural South of the River Open wrapped up at the Bull Creek Community Centre on the 7th of August. This trial tournament was well attended with 17 players enjoying a new venue, kindly provided through support from the City of Melville.

The final round saw Dominador Andador beat Edward Calado to win the tournament on Direct Encounter. A tense match wrapped up nicely as Dom’s knight exploded onto g6 and precipitate a collapse in Eddie’s position. Congratulations to other winners Merson King taking out the U/1700 and Yung Fu Leong winning the U/1350.

Report kindly provided by the organiser Ian McAteer.
