The 8th Cheshire Tournament was held on 12th February 2005 at Ashdene Primary School, Wilmslow.
It was sponsored by Kisekigo.
33 players, including a large and successful team from Liverpool, attended the Cheshire Tournament which had been moved from Crewe to Wilmslow at short notice. This was because of the Chess Congress being cancelled, but Ashdene Primary School proved a good replacement. Winner of the open section was Toby Manning (3 dan Leicester); second was Tony Atkins (3 dan Bracknell). Winner of the handicap section was Jonathan Tims (8 kyu Liverpool) on 5/5; he beat club mate George Leach (2 kyu) in the final. Also on 4/5 were Chris Burke (6 kyu Liverpool) and David Biddulph (30 kyu Stockport). Neil Leavesley (25 kyu Liverpool) was best youth player with 3/5. 10x10 winner was 16-year old Andrea Sullivan (14 kyu Liverpool) with 7/10.
