Final Standings for the 2020 Childrens Chess Grandprix

With the March Childrens Chess completed we have the final standings for the 2020 Grandprix. The top four of each section usually get invited to Stormont for an award ceremony and Elite Chess Tournament.

For the Grandprix we split the competitions into 3 - the Primary School section, Lower Secondary School (Form 1 to Form 3) and the Upper Secondary School ( Form 4 and above) and there are 2 sections in the puzzle solving - Primary and Secondary.

The event at Stormont has been cancelled. But we hope to organise an award ceremony possibly at Stormont or at an alternative venue at a latter date in the year. If this proves difficult we will organise something with the each pupils schools.

The scores for the tournaments are calculated on the position of the player in their section.

The top 3 scores over the series of the 5 (4 this year as Aprils was cancelled) tournaments are added together to calculate players scores. If players share points they share the prize.
