The 2022 Harris Interclub Competition was held at Southern Suburbs Chess Club (Leeming Primary School) on Sundays 21st and 28th August.|
This year's events was a great Harris/Edwardes tournament enjoyed by all. Maybe a record number of 64 players for the 64-square game!
Seven different clubs competed - maybe another record - thanks to Southern Suburbs, Perth, UWA, Kingsley, Warwick, Academy and Bunbury.
All games will be ACF rated (hopefully in the September ratings list) which should see many players gain a rating for the first time.
Congratulations to Southern Suburbs for claiming back the Harris Shield from UWA in a tense final won on the bottom two boards.
Also congratulations to Perth for a clean sweep with both teams in the final in Division B (won by Perth B) and also taking out Division C in a final against Southern Suburbs.
Special mention for upsets goes to our young ladies Anoushka Gupta (ACF 881), who beat Gavin Soutar (1900), and unrated Yasmina Cavosie-Pletsch, who beat Bekzod Rasulov (1548).
