Report by Russell Horton:

It was a good weekend for indoors sports – with heavy rain outside Kevin Hendrey was creating his own storm against the reign of 3 time junior champion Alastair Dyer. Kevin played Alastair in the first round and scored an upset win when his kingside pawns resisted attack and then got mobile. Kevin went on to finish day 1 in the lead with 3/3 after wins over Marcus Bretag and Vincent Horton. The second day saw the weather improve and Alastair’s fortunes improved with Kevin settling for a draw in an endgame against Mason Carter (which was lost under longer time controls). Then finally Lawrence Bretag defeated Kevin in the last round to allow Alastair to sneak into the lead as 2010 Junior Champion with 4/5. Kevin finished 2nd with 3.5/5. Vincent and Mason took out the minor titles of U16 and U14 respectively.

The U12 event was a one-sided affair with Oscar Brown taking a clean sweep in the small round robin. Lenard Lange finished 2nd and claimed U10 title, while Yuvini Perera claimed the U10 Girls.

The tournament was fun. A small field actually created quite a casual environment so everyone, regardless of the result, had fun. Alastair got 7.5 Vincent got 6 Marcus got 5.5 and I got 5, in the blitz.

Burnie Chess Club site says the following was the correct result of the U18 Blitz:

1st Alastair Dyer 7/10
2nd Vincent Horton 6/10
3rd Marcus Bretag 5.5/10
4th Lawrence Bretag 5/10
5th Mason Carter 4.5/10
6th Kevin Hendrey 2/10

For some reason the version sent to me in SP was all garbled, so I've deleted it after seeing Saragossa's post. Looks like a very competitive blitz tournament anyways.
