The 7th MC Cup Qualifiers event for 2012 entertained 58 keen Chess players ranging in age from 4 through to 16 years.

There were 9 girls in the event.

New Rooks Division

We introduced a new Rooks Division for this event. The new division is intended for players that have been playing in a few tournaments but haven't yet reached the top level. The format worked really well with many players experiencing greater success and enjoying playing against kids closer to their own level. 

Chess Power Arbiters

Paul Macdonald was the Chief Arbiter for the day.

Roshan Gallage was the Assistant Arbiter.

Liam Macdonald and Dylan Jenkinson kindly helped in the kitchen for the day serving chocolate fish, bikkies, raro, tea and coffee.

Puzzle Competition

We ran lots of puzzles including the popular Hungry Knight, Fastest Cowboy and Knights Tour Challenge plus a few other puzzles and challenges.

Pawns division - Jacob Barry for beating Shawn Hui in Round 1. Jacob wins 20 Chess Power dollars
