About the Doeberl Cup
The Doeberl Cup is the longest running weekend chess event in Australia. Since 1963 it has been held every year in Canberra, Australia. Grandmaster Ian Rogers holds the record for the most number of wins (either outright or on tie-break) with 12.
The Doeberl Cup was named after its primary sponsor, Erich Doeberl. The family tradition of sponsoring the tournament continues today with Rosemarie Doeberl providing support for her father's vision.
