Willis Lo wins 2012 ACT Junior Championship

Congratulations to Willis Lo, who is this years ACT Junior Champion. Starting the 9 round tournament with 7.5/8, Lo established an unbeatable lead, and could even afford a last round loss to top seed Wenlin Yin, remaining half a point ahead of the field. Harry Press, Michael Kethro and Wenlin Yin finished tied for second on 7/9, while Megan Setiabudi won the ACT Girls title with her score of 6.5.
The tournament attracted 51 players, with most of the leading ACT junior players taking part. There were a number of good performances from lower rated players (as is usually the case in junior events),  with Donghoon Shin scoring the biggest rating increase, while Ryan Turner and Benn Tamsett (in his first tournament) finishing amongst the players on 5/9.
