1st.=:Jeeva, Ian, Zach, Denis
Ratings (U1500): Udani & Chamath
Junior: John
Women's: Ella

Unfortunately, Eddy was called away on urgent private business and couldn't complete the tournament. He was leading the race when he left - and the bookies had him at long odds-on.

Sincere thanks to LCC for another Launceston Cup. Thanks also to Zach and John for arbiter duties. It was a pleasure to DOP.

Congrats to Jeeva on winning the lightning and all the co-winners of the Cup; commiserations to Eddy.

When I was doing seedings for the Tas Champs I noticed Jeeva had a very high online quick rating so I am not as surprised by this result as some may be; impressive all the same.
