Chess Tournament Awards
Our autumn tournament was very well attended with over 40 boys signing up to take part from Years 2 to 6. Medals were awarded for the best performing boy in each year and trophies were presented to the winners and runners up at Under 9 and Under 11.
Medal winners for Best in Year were as follows:
Year 6 = Alex Pearce
Year 5 = Téo Rybak
Year 4 = Samuel Tschiesche
Year 3 = Hou Ning Zhu (Kida)
Year 2 = Peter Babcock
The top four places in the tournament saw a tie on 6/7 and so a tiebreak on progressive scores was used. This determined the trophy winners. The Best Under 9 was Hou Ning Zhu, with Josh Sharma as Runner Up. The Best Under 11 was Téo Rybak with Sam Jeffery coming second.
Mr Richard Hogg, Teacher said;
“Very well done to all who took part. We hope that our termly tournaments encourage the boys to get into and improve their chess.”
