Malitis Memorial Final Round!

posted 26 Aug 2013, 15:23 by Melbourne Chess Club   [ updated 26 Aug 2013, 15:41 by simon dale ]
A big final round in the Malitis memorial saw at least one upset, with Jack Puccini taking a Grand Prix double-pointer in defeating Malcolm Pyke. Jack moves within striking range of winning the Open section of the Grand Prix, sitting 1.5 points behind Malcolm with 4 tournaments left to play. Tom Kalisch capped off a positive return to tournament chess at the MCC beating unrated Tej Shah with black on board 4, to take him to 4.5/7. Ray Yang continued his impressive rise up the ranks securing a draw with black against Peter Fry, and Anthony Hain moved into 4th place in the u/1800 section of the Grand Prix with a win over Richard McCart. We had a few more submissions for the brilliancy prize, which you can see below. The winner will be posted on the 2013 brilliancy page and hopefully annotated by the victor!
