The 2015 Southern Suburbs Allegro Championship (15 minutes per player) was a 9 round Swiss tournament played over 2 consecutive club nights: Tuesday 14th April and Tuesday 21st April. Twenty-two players participated.
As often happens in tournaments with quicker time controls, several players achieved good results against more highly rated opponents. Dennis Holland (1927) won his game against Ihsan Ferozkohi (2222), but was held to draws in his games with Colin Koehler (1597) and Allan Natividad (1583). Andrey Lugovskoy (1477) drew with David Ellis (1957), while our youngest club member, 8-year-old Andrew Walker, had one of his best tournaments, defeating Alan Fardoe (1665) and Jon Prunty (1418).
