The inaugural Maroondah Festival Chess Championship was played on Sunday, 20th February 2005 under overcast skies as the eighteen participants enjoyed the open air environment at Croydon Park.

We were pleased to welcome a number of visiting players on the day, from as far afield as Werribee and Healesville, including James Bonning (a regular poster on Chess Chat).  Lots of "walk-ups" introduced themselves during the competition and we expect to see many new faces at Croydon Chess over coming weeks ... including several players rated ~2000.

Format was a 5-round Allegro, Swiss pairings, 15 minutes per player, no increment.

Results:

  • Open - Winner: Gary Bekker 4/5 (on tie-break)
  • Open - Runner Up: Stephen Frost 4/5 (on tie-break)
  • Under 18 - Winner: Jared Frost 3/5
  • Under 18 - Runner Up: Jay Maccarron 2/5
  • Under 12 - Winner: Jamie Yung 3/5
  • Under 12 - Runner Up: Jared Christensen 2/5
