12 players came together at the 2015 Australian Othello Nationals in Melbourne. This was the 20th anniversary of the Australian Nationals, and it was good to see the tournament return to its birthplace.
Matt Vinar went undefeated in the preliminary 5 rounds and then went on to defeat Phil Cairns in the final with a score of 47-17.
