The Inner West Chess Challenge 15 has finished and we broke a record for the most number of entries received. 331 players started the tournament in Round 1! As usual, our major tournaments are long and arduous events, so congratulations to the 311 players who endured the marathon chess day and survived until the end of the eighth and final round.
Top seed Paul Russell was the only player to finish on a perfect score of 8/8, and he entertained us with some a-Paul-ling jokes in his victory speech!
Thank you once again to the Latvian Society Club for providing an excellent venue, to all of the Sydney Academy of Chess arbiters, our canteen helpers, and to all of the parents for their efforts and support by driving their children to and from Strathfield.
