Plenty of quality Schools Chess at Methodist College

Enjoying the game

Plenty of chess the secondary schools had 14 good players all looking to beat the previous champion Kevin Robbin. Playing a 7 round swiss.

With 8 players in the Primary section we played a 6 round swiss and a fun Battle Chess tournament again of 6 rounds. With a chess Puzzle competition running at the same time. A good afternoon of chess and hard thinking....
