ACT Under 10's Championship 2007

Congratulations to Bevan Lee, Lucinda Flood and Niranjan Gupte for finishing equal first in the ACT Under 10's Championship. It was a close tournament with half a point separating the top 6 players.
The level of chess was quite high, and before the start of the tournament I felt that any one of the top 8 seeds could win it. In the end the performance that impressed me most was by 9th seed Lucinda Flood. She managed to come back from some dire positions to not only save games, but also win games that I thought were simply lost.
Full results from the event are here. Thanks must go to the organising team headed by Rebekah Gupte, not only for putting the event on, but for getting the results up so quickly.
