2022 CAWA Perth Open
The 2022 CAWA Perth Open was played on 12th and 13th February. A number of SSCC members participated in this event. The longer time control (60 minutes + 30 seconds per move) and the advertised prize fund of $2,400 were successful in attracting a large field of 43 players, with all rating divisions being well represented. The tournament benefited from the participation of GM Temur Kuybokarov, who is to be congratulated for winning the tournament with a score of 6.0/6.
For a full report on this tournament, see the CAWA website.
The changes made to the running of the Perth Open in 2022 may be just the first steps in a process that CAWA hopes will raise significantly the profile of this tournament. With continued support, the tournament may evolve into a major event on the Australian chess calendar. I thank the players, the CAWA Council, and everyone who contributed to the success of the 2022 Perth Open.
