Brogan Powlesland didn’t make the cut to join the ACC Summer Cup on Mondays, but participated in the inaugural Auckland Chess Weekend (ACW) event at ACC and won it, collecting a nice ACW T-shirt! The next event will be in May (see the ACW section on our website for details).
Don’t forget to enter the George Trundle round-robin event, which will be held from the 12th to the 21st of April during the school holidays at ACC. It’s a rare chance to play with equal players in one of the four rating groups. Only 40 seats are available.
The time control being used is the same as in FIDE Olympiads and New Zealand Congress. One classical game per day.
