Arved Wasser Memorial Tournament

This competition began in 1973 as a social event (not rated) to be played at Club nights while the WA State Championships and the WA Inter-Club Competition were being conducted.

Originally called the Fixed Opening Tournament, it was renamed in 1998 to honour the passing of regular Club member, Arved Wasser.

The openings selected were �less than usual openings� from world championship games. The time limit being 40 minutes per player.

Due to various circumstances, a different format for the tournament was set in 2005. A seven round Swiss with players given 30 minutes each per game. In line with the previous allocation of prizes, the winner of the tournament is awarded the A division perpetual trophy, and the player with the highest score in the lower half of the ratings list (of participating players) is awarded the B division perpetual trophy.
