2017 Southern Suburbs Fischerandom Championship

The 2017 Southern Suburbs Fischerandom Championship was played on Tuesday 27th June and Tuesday 4th July. Eight players participated in a round-robin, with 3 rounds played in the first week and then final 4 rounds played in the second week. The randomised starting positions gave rise to a number of interesting positions with a range of tactical possibilities, and there were many closely-fought games.

The time control was 20 minutes with 10 seconds increment per move.

Congratulations to Edward Calado: 2017 Southern Suburbs Fischerandom Champion.
