South Australian Championship 2023

January 31

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until March 28, 2023

This is one of our most important events for the year!

It attracts ten of the best players in the State as they battle it out over nine gruelling weeks of round robin chess. It has the special unique feature, found nowhere else in the world – the Sulik Challenge!

Frank Sulik was an exceptionally talented chess player who won our State Championship nine times (check our Honours List on this website to see for yourself)! When he passed, his loved ones and relatives generously donated $10,000 and a trophy. Both the $10,000 and trophy will be given to the the first person to win the SA Chess Champion title 5 times, starting in 2011.

The SA Championship is the qualifying tournament for the $10,000 Sulik prize.
