The Lidums Cup, held over South Australia’s
Labour Day long weekend, is
Adelaide’s premier weekend event. The
1999 Lidums Cup attracted 42 players,
including a handful of Victorians.GM Darryl Johansen shared first place
with Adelaide’s Srbo Zaric, an International
Master of Correspondence Chess.
His over-the-board appearances have
been rare of late, but this Lidums Cup
performance, which culminated in an
agressive win over Trevor Tao and the
following final round victory show fine
form.
