2022 ACT Teams Championship

 After a break of 2 years, the ACT Teams Championship returned for 2022. Once again it was a 7 round Rapid (15m+5s) and 12 teams took part (well 11 + a scratch team to avoid the bye). A number of teams took their chess seriously, a few teams took their outfits seriously, and at least one team did both! 

The winning team was King Charles III, which consisted of CM Hui Li, Charles Huang, Larry Cheng and Jerry Cheng. They finished half a point ahead of The Wise Guys, who did in fact win the prize for Best Dressed Teams. In third place was Bishop's Monarchy, which like KCIII was a junior heavy team.

Tuggeranong Chess Club won the Larko Cup for the best official Club team, beating the Canberra Chess Club on countback.

The event was enjoyed by all who took part, and will almost certainly run next year, with a bigger turnout expected.
