The 1st Team move to within 2 points (with 2 matches remaining) of retaining the Premier title following this convincing victory.

The Perth 800 International Chess Festival took place on January 29-31.  I made the number of players from the club present to be 14 –  apologies if I missed anyone!  Pride of place must go to Tiger Cub Sam Gregory who shared second place in the Challengers event, and first team member  Clement Sreeves won the junior prize in the International Open.
