2013 Australian Womens Masters

Sometimes important tournaments get off to small starts. The Australian Womens Masters, which is currently happening at the Melbourne Chess Club, may turn out to be one such tournament. Organised by Gary Bekker and Jamie Kenmure, the tournament is a 8 player round robin, consisting of some of the more active female players in the country. Top seed is Katherine Jarek, while Alana Chibnall, Megan Setiabudi, Sarah Anton and Leteisha Simmonds would all be familiar names to those who play on the weekend chess circuit.
With 1 round to play Katherine Jarek is in the lead with 5/6, while Leteisha Simmonds may also be on that score (depending on the result of her round 6 game). Alana Chibnall is on 4.5, and plays Simmonds in the final round.

Probably the only time the Melbourne Chess Club has had any women visit for decades!
David Beaumont is a 'bit of a woman' but he doesn't count!
