Jai won the event outright with 5/6, with talented Juniors Lachlan Wang and Max Phillips close behind on 4.5 points, followed by Tyson Walker and Michael D’Arcy on 4 points. We are going to miss Tyson on Wednesday nights from now on as he has moved to Ipswich. Good luck there Tyson and come back whenever you can! And a big thank-you to Kerry Corker for running this event so well too!

PS Some great games were played on the weekend at the Darling Downs Open won jointly by GM Moulthun Ly and GM David Smerdon with 6.5/7. Former Redcliffe Champion IM Brodie McClymont won a very interesting R5 game against IM Alex Wohl and then lost a very close game against GM David Smerdon’s French Defence in R6. Both are worth playing over at :
