Metro Chess Club METROPOLITAN CHESS CLUB
(Established since 1959)



Robert (Bob) Pilgrim Open

The Metropolitan Chess Club celebrated its 40th anniversary in 1999 with a 7 round swiss tournament. This format proved popular and attracted 33 players.

Originally titled the Metro Open, this event (as part of Metro's 60th anniversary) will now be known as the Robert (Bob) Pilgrim Open in recognition of the outstanding contribution made by Bob Pilgrim for the Metropolitan Chess Club.

First with 6.5/7 was a Midland Club member, Timo Farber. Equal second on 5/7 were David Ellis, Leon Taylor and Andrew Kuklinski.

The success of this competition prompted the Club to establish this tournament as a regular feature on our calendar commencing mid May. The tournament was named the Metro Open in 2000 because it may include CAWA members outside our Club.

The Robert (Bob) Pilgrim Open has attracted increasing numbers since the first tournament in 1999 when 33 players participated, but since our clubrooms have a physical limit to the number of participants, our own members have the first choice of entering. If the maximum limit has not been reached, entry is opened to CAWA members.



2021 Robert (Bob) Pilgrim Open

Format for this years event is a 6 Round Swiss with a time limit of 70 min + 30 sec increment per move. Round Draws, Standings & Cross Table generated by Vega - www.vegachess.com (copy licensed to: Metropolitan Chess Club - AUS)
