2019 ACT Championship 8th-11th March 2019

The 2019 ACT Championship is on next weekend (8th-11th March). This FIDE Rated event is open to residents of the ACT and surrounding areas. It will be a 7 round tournament, with the first round played on Friday evening, and then 2 rounds a day on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Canberra Day holiday). The venue is Campbell High School, Trealor Crescent, Ainslie (next to the War Memorial), with the first round starting at 7:30 pm on the Friday evening. Entry fee is $65 ($45 concessions). Entries are being managed by ACTCA President Cam Cunningham, and you can contact him at
I would recommend anyone who has the time over the weekend to give it a go. If my trip to Guam has demonstrated anything, turning up to a tournament can yield some surprising results! It also provides a good opportunity for some serious, internationally rated chess, as well as being a good warm up for the Doeberl Cup.
