Tony Sturges ANZAC Day Memorial Thematic Competition and Blitz!

Come along to the second annual Tony Sturges Memorial and try your luck against some new crazy openings, and then stick around for a fast and furious blitz competition.

Thematic Memorial:

This is a competition like no other, 7 rounds, 15 minutes each, no increment, and each rounds starts from a different opening position

Blitz competition:

7 rounds, 3 minutes with a 2 second increment, and each round starts from the normal starting position

It’s all about having some fun at the chess board in the name of one of the HICC’s most passionate coaches, and raising some money for chess across the state.
