Revesby Club Tournament - 16th August1997


Following on from the previous NSW tournament where I reported a spate of non-arrivals, this tournament surpassed that milestone with a total of five no shows. And there were a few unannounced shows as well, with a total of 93 players eventually making it to the starting blocks.

The Revesby Workers Club is definitely a superior venue, as they don't charge hire space for tournaments, on the understanding players will avail themselves of their facilities. And their facilities are great, with extremely reasonably priced meals, cheap drinks and pokies that I'm told pay well.

Having said that, interstaters should start planning to come to Sydney for the long weekend of October, as the famous Revesby Workers Club is going to be the venue for this year's NSW Championships.

The tournament ran very smoothly. John Holgate's loss of 18 points in Masters has led to the situation where Australia no longer has any player rated over 2000. Ann Drew paid us a visit all the way from Toowoomba, and picked up 93 ratings points for her efforts. A dark horse for next weekend? I achieved a personal milestone of finally cracking 1000 games, a feat already performed by Barker, Kane, Wright and McGiffen. Jan Serisier broke through for a long-awaited tournament win in B Division, Christine Small continued her consistency in C, while in D the extremely keen Ram Mohe, from the Central Coast club had a convincing win and gained 100 points in the process.

Here are results, and stats on popular demand:
