Elijah Hadikusumo takes out prestigious chess tournament '2024 Byron Capital Darling Downs Open' Division Title

One of the biggest and most prestigious all ages chess tournaments took place over the weekend in Toowoomba and a number of keen little Somerset legends made the trip! Brushing shoulders with Master players from around the world, as well as keen chess players of all ages from all over Australia, a number of our Somerset little masters played their hearts out with some absolutely amazing results.

Our very own Elijah Hadikusumo got an incredible 6.5/7 in the Minor Division; taking overall 1st place out of 130 players! Incredible result and one to put down in the Somerset history books.....

Also great results from Alisa Lai, William Lai, Jeremy Zhang to finish with winning records. Well done everyone!
