The 2012 GTCL Cup took place on June 25, 2012 at Annex Chess Club, Toronto.
Twelve teams took part, competing for prizes in two categories, the traditional Club Championship (elite teams representing a chess club in the GTA) and a new Open Competition category (pickup teams with an average rating under 1800). Check the GTCL Cup announcement page for tournament format, etc.
The Club Championship was won – once again – by the Chess Academy, while the Open Competition ended in a tie between Hamilton and the CCC Commandos – both on match points and on board points. The decision was to award the prize to the CCC Commandos since the players are GTCL members. Check the complete results on the 2012 GTCL Cup Teams Results cross-table.
