Sydney Academy of Chess
Level 1, 30A George Street, Burwood (2 minutes walk from Burwood Station)
We had 17 players in the last Inner West Sunday Fun Tournament of the year held on 1st December, 2013.
4 players tied for first place with 7 points out of 9 (prizewinners below). Arbiter Ellen managed to fit in 9 rounds due to the speedy play of the competitors. A reminder to all the players that chess is not a race - it is more important to play good moves on the board than to be ahead on the clock!
