2015 Southern Suburbs Open

The 2015 Southern Suburbs Open began on Tuesday 17th February and concluded on Tuesday 31st March. The tournament was run as a 7 round ACF-rated Swiss, with 1 round per week. The time control was 60 minutes initial time, with an increment of 15 seconds per move.

This was the first tournament held at Southern Suburbs Chess Club, and it attracted a field of 27 players, with several strong local players in the top half of the draw. It was pleasing to see plenty of new faces, and also to see several junior players participating.

Congratulations to the winner, Ihsan Ferozkohi, and the runner-up, Adam Kelly. Both players finished some distance ahead of the rest of the field. Adam was away for Round 1 and had to take a half-point bye, but then won his next three games to get to 3.5/4, a half-point behind Ihsan. The Round 5 game between Ihsan and Adam ended in a draw, which meant that Ihsan was able to maintain his narrow lead. This turned out to be just enough, as both players won all of their remaining games.
