Most influential chess player in history?

Mikhail Tal, the 8th World Champion (1960–1961), was born on this day in 1936.

Did you know that the “Magician from Riga” held the record for the longest unbeaten streak in top-level chess history, with 95 games, until Ding Liren’s streak of 100 games in 2017?

Thank you everyone on a fantastic journey for this year’s club championship!

We knew last year’s champion Miodrag was the main candidate for the seventh title of our very prestigious competition but he did have a big task to beat our top junior Nolan (this year fourth place junior under 10 category in Australia). 

Our best junior in this tournament Mason did his best tournament ever reaching 5 points which put him in the group of very experienced players sharing 4th place in the whole tournament.

We in Dandenong Junior Chess Centre are extremely proud of their results. 

This year we have seen a lot of previous members returning to our club to compete in the club championship. Having 40+ participants in the last two competitions makes us confident that we are doing a good job at strengthening chess in our local area.
