Fisherwick Floored in Slugfest

Five games, five decisive results and not even a single draw offer in sight.

That was the story as South Belfast rivals Fisherwick and Queen’s went blow for blow in the biggest slugfest Division 1 chess has seen this season. Both teams were at full strength and desperate to gain an ascendancy over the other in their bids to prove who's boss.

The formula behind such high profile matches usually produces dynamite. Table topping competition, club rivalry and individual reputations are put right under the microscope with every performance and result magnified.
