Andrei Deviatkin

The 2011 Doeberl Cup took place on 21st-25th April at the Hellenic Club in Canberra, Australia. This is the longest running weekend chess event in Australia and is held over Easter each year attracting a field of over 200 players.

This year the Premier tournament was played over 9 rounds and boasted 68 participants. In addition, Major and Minor events for the lower rated players also took place. The total prize fund amounted to $17,850, with $4,000 reserved for the winner of the Premier section.

Andrei Deviatkin scored a pivotal victory against the fellow Grandmaster David Arutinian in the last round and secured a clear first place with 7.5 points. Deviatkin’s earlier co-leader, GM Dejan Bojkov of Bulgaria, drew with the local GM David Smerdon and remained on the second place, where he was joined by GM Sune Berg Hansen.

The Sydney International Open begins in following a rest day after the Doeberl Cup. There are two 9-round tournaments across the 5-day period, the Open which allows all players to enter or the Sydney International Challengers which is designed for players rated under 2000.
