This tournament took place with 21 entrants, and was won with a picket fence by Archit Kannan!
We'd like to thank everyone who participated - and especially the parents and those who travelled a long way to attend (including from Ballarat!). There is plenty of room for more players at our next event on May 20th.

The results have been posted on the website - see http://nobleparkchess.org.au/ClubTournaments/2018T2AprilKnightsCup/index.html . This month we had U8, U10 and U12 age sections, with the following prizes awarded (based on cumulative score tiebreak - which had to be used to break a threefold tie for the U12 section, with three players scoring 5/7!):


1st Aaron Alphonso (3/7)

2nd Darline Augustine (2/7)

3rd Yuvin De Silva (2/7)


1st Archit Kannan (7/7) - and first overall, having secured this with a round to spare.

2nd Cunmeng Wang (4/7)

3rd Justin Goodison (4/7)


1st Matthew Arthur (5/7)

2nd Jackie Li (5/7)

3rd Sunny Zhu (5/7)
