Central Coast January Open 11 rounds


A 'small' open - so to speak, a sort of reinstatement of 1999's Summer Cup attracted new players and some who hadn't been for a long while, as well as some support from the other chess clubs in the area.

The January Chess Open Tournament was won by current Wyong Cup holder John Curtis of Narara with a perfect score of 11 from 11 games played in this fast-chess (five minutes a side) tournament. Second was current District Champion John Nutter of Gosford (9 points).

Best Newcomer was 12 year old Kurt Marley from Kanwal who was awarded the Summer Cup.

The tournament of fast chess hosted by the Central Coast Leagues Chess Club attracted players from Mingara; Ettalong and Toukley Chess Clubs playing ten minute games.

1st - John Curtis
2nd - John Nutter
