The Christmas Open



2019 Christmas Open


The 2019 Christmas Open was played on 30th November and 1st December at North Woodvale Primary School (Perth Chess Club).

A large number of our regular weekender participants were either travelling or had overriding commitments this weekend. While the field of 11 players was smaller than hoped, all players seemed to enjoy their weekend. The competition was of a high standard with all players having to work hard for their wins.

Congratulations to the winner, FM Tristan Boyd (6.0/6), and to all other prize winners.
