2009 ACT Junior Championship

Earlier this week Allen Setiabudi became the 2009 ACT Junior Chess Champion, after defeating Alana Chibnall in a playoff. They had both scored 7.5/9, along with Justin Chow, although the ACT Junior Chess League rules only include the top 2 players on tie-break in the playoff match.
What is interesting about Allen's title win, is that it comes after he tied for first in 2008 ACT Championship, meaning he was the 'all-ages' champion before he was a junior champion. Indeed, if Justin Chow had won this years junior, he would have achieved the same distinction as also finished first in last years ACT Championship.
52 players took part on this 3 day, 9 round event, and the full results can be seen here.
