2017 Harris Edwardes Interclub Competition

The 2017 Harris Edwardes Interclub Competition is now complete, with Southern Suburbs Chess Club teams winning all 3 divisions! This year's competition was one of the largest in recent memory with 10 teams -- 5 from Southern Suburbs Chess Club, 3 from Perth Chess Club, 1 from Metro Chess Club and 1 from Kingsley Junior Chess Club.

Many thanks to Gordon Dunlop for organising yet another successful Harris Interclub Competition which, by virtue of having large numbers of players and the participation of all Perth-based clubs, is always one of the highlights of the CAWA calendar.

Well done to everyone who participated. A summary of the standings and results is provided below.

Division A (Open)

Four teams contested Division A. In the first three rounds, each team played matches against other teams in an all-play-all, with teams earning 1 point for each match won, and half a point for a tied match. If 2 or more teams finished on the same match score, individual game points were used to break the tie. Once the all-play-all was complete, the top two finishing teams played off to determine the overall winner, and the remaining two teams played off for 3rd place.

SSCC A1 reached the final by winning all 3 of their preliminary matches. In Round 3, SSCC A1 defeated Metro A 3-1. The same two teams contested the final, with SSCC A1 this time winning 3.5-0.5. SSCC A2 finished 4th overall, but were competitive in all of their matches and were unlucky not to win at least one match.

Division B (All players rated below 1900 ACF)

Two teams contested Division B. The teams played a series of 4 matches, with the overall winner determined by number of matches won. If at the end of 4 matches the match score were tied, individual game points would be used to determine the winning team. After each round, the order of players was rotated, so that each player played all 4 players of the other team and did not play the same opponent twice.

After the first week of the competition, the match score was 1-1 with SSCC B narrowly ahead on game points. In the second week, SSCC B comprehensively won both matches 3.5-0.5 to win the trophy by 3 matches to 1.

Division C (All players rated below 1500 ACF)

Four teams contested Division C. In the first three rounds, each team played matches against other teams in an all-play-all, with teams earning 1 point for each match won, and half a point for a tied match. If 2 or more teams finished on the same match score, individual game points were used to break the tie. Once the all-play-all was complete, the top two finishing teams played off to determine the overall winner, and the remaining two teams played off for 3rd place.

Division C saw both SSCC teams reach the final. Southern Suburbs C1 won all 3 of their preliminary matches, though may have been fortunate to defeat Perth C in Round 2 -- in that match, with the score at 2-1 to Southern Suburbs, Seb Vearncombe was in some time trouble and down an exchange without compensation against Lindsay Bordas but in the end managed to win to secure a 3-1 result. Southern Suburbs C2 reached the final by defeating Kingsley Juniors in Round 2 and then tying their Round 3 match with the strong Perth C team, thanks to wins by Oliver Nokes and Harry Geronimo. The final result was a win to Southern Suburbs C1, with Southern Suburbs C2 taking 2nd place.
