The 2019 Australian Nationals was a fantastic day, with 14 players coming to Melbourne from around the country, and we even had some international players. Three players from the Mongolian Othello Federation came down to Melbourne and played (they’d been visiting Sydney and came down for the tournament).
Scott Hughes won 5/5 in the pairings and won the final against Matt Vinar. He played fantastically and didn’t drop a game all day.
Ivan Chan, a local Melbournian won the best rookie award, and Sam Milankov again got close to playing in a final with 4/5 wins. Well done to all!
Again, our thanks go to Rob Girardo for organising the venue for our use.
