Hi all

I had a question from a chess.com friend asking if I could find out the time control of the Perth Open......

Anyone able to assist me in answering this question?

The Perth Chess Club link to the entry form is broken.....

Yes real funny Jono - I didn't realize that you cared :)

There are about 150 WA chessplayers on the active ACF rating list. There are 274 chess players on the CAWA junior rating list.

Metro chess club has about 50 players in its club ch'ship, 50 players in its Respini tournament, 30 players in the Metro open.

Perth Chess Club has increased membership in the last year and had 32 players in its club championship, 30 players in the Mary Thomson cup and about 25 players compete in non-rated tournaments.

There are 6 weekenders in Perth - the Perth Open is the only one with this format and it attracted more players than the other weekenders.

CAWA organises other events - currently the Huntingdale tournament has a 10 player round robin with an average ACF rating of just over 2000.

I played in one once long ago where because of strange time constraints the first round ended up being 90 mins with all the rest being 60, and acceleration for the first round only (because of the 90 mins thing). Odd tournament that one; I came second and met the winner in round one which was drawn.
