Justin goes home

Justin Tan (2446) recently returned to Australia to take part in the 2016 Australian Chess Championships, held in Melbourne from 2 to 12 January.

Seeded fourth, Justin finished in equal fourth place.   He had a disappointing start, scoring only 2/5, but finished strongly with four wins and two draws.   His score of 7/11 was a point and a half behind the eventual winner and joint top seed, IM Kanan Izzat (2480).

Justin is now back in the UK, having spent a few days with family and friends.   He will be playing in the Tradewise Gibraltar Masters, which starts next Monday (25th).

He plans to return to Australia in August, before starting university in Edinburgh in September.
