Bundaberg Fun Weekender Chess Tournament

13/14 February 2010

There was a great weekend of chess at the Bundaberg Fun Weekender Chess Tournament held at the Central State School on the weekend of 13/14 February

With six top players with a Chess Rating of over 1000 in the Tournament, competition was keen with the final results not known until the last round of the six round tournament.

The first division was won by John Harris (Bundaberg)(a former Queensland Champion) with a score of 5.5 games out of 6. He was closely followed by Keith Jenkins (Gladstone) with 5 games out of 6. Third place in this division was shared jointly with both Phil Mulholland (Bundaberg) and Brian Marinovic (Bundaberg) both with 4 games out of 6.

The second division was won by Aishwarya Preshy (Bundaberg) with a score of 3.5 games out of 6. Aishwarya is no doubt the top female chess player in Bundaberg. Equal second place was shared by Timothy Harris (Bundaberg), Cathy Farrelly (Gladstone) and Gary Lutz (Bundaberg)

Director of Play for the day, Bundaberg Chess Club Secretary Allan Menham said it was a first class tournament. Having the three Presidents of the Gladstone, Bundaberg and Maryborough Clubs competing made the day very special. Interest in chess in the area is steadily increasing.

A similar event will be held in February next year
