Traditional and very popular Rookies Cup took place today in Box Hill Chess Club.
More than 50 players took part and one of them made welcome return to tournament chess.Michael Woodhams three times represented Australia in Chess Olympiad 1974,1976,1978
In Nice (1974) he won silver medal on board four scoring 15,5 points from 18 games (86,1%)-fantastic result!
I had a quick chat with Mr,Woodhams and looks like he will be playing chess more often! Good news for chess in the country!
