Bobby_Cheng_2010.jpgThe 2013 Australian Open Chess Championships took place from 2-13 January at the Norths Chess Club in Cammeray.

The competition was an 11-round Swiss with over 100 players taking part and the winner was 15-year old Bobby Cheng (pictured).

Bobby is the youngest ever player to win the Australian Open title!

The former under-12 World Champion scored a tremendous 9½/11, beating GM Igor Khenkin (2659 Elo) along the way.

The time control was 90 minutes for 40 moves, followed by 30 minutes for remaining moves, with an increment of 30 seconds per move from the start.

    whatbecause

    The 30 second increment operates the whole game, players get an extra 30 minutes at move 40. Bobby achieved his second (I think) IM norm in this tournament with TRP over 2700.

    Chess.com is to be congratulated for putting this event in the news. Incredibly, Chessbase has ignored this event entirely in spite of a German GM playing in it!! I think that that sums up Chessbase as a company: selfish, ignorant and insular.

    Bobby Cheng won 3[!] awards actually. He won the Australian Open [classic time control] , the Australian Open lightning [held as a rest day in the classic] and the best junior[!] player. He was also tired from travelling from a chess event in New Zealand, so he had to concede a 1/2 point bye in round one!

    I read on a chess forum that Cheng's Tournament Performance rating was astonishing - about 2770!!!!!!!!

    He has the chess world at his feet. His only barrier, surely, to being a 2700 FIDE GM is whether other things in life such as school infringe upon that. That's a decision that only he can make.

    What an achievement!
