2021 ACTJCL Summer Swiss

 Fred Litchfield has won the 2021 ACTJCL Summer Swiss, with a score of 6/7. He had 5 wins, 1 draw, and one half point bye (while filming an upcoming appearance on Mastermind!). His draw was with Harry Press, who finished 2nd on 5.5 (4 wins, 2 days draws and a half point bye). In equal third on 4.5 were Malik Amer, Nick Beare and Lachlan Ho (who was the best junior player).

The event was organised by Kate Woodley on behalf of the ACT Junior Chess League, and was intended as both a serious event for adult players, and the opportunity for junior plays to play opponents they might not normally face. There were a number of good performances by the junior contingent, with both Shriya Karthik and Hunter Sanchez winning their rating groups.

Full results can be found here, and the page also includes a link to the tournament bulletins, which are free to download.
