English Primary Schools Rapidplay Sat 9th Feb - Results
We have had an invite to the English Prmary Schools Rapidplay in Liverpool on Sat 9th Feb. We have 8 signed up - Ethan Lancaster, Lucy Lowe, Alex Hollingworth, Lawrence Moustafa, William Hardman-Elliott, James Cooper, Leon Li and Sithun Da Silva
Update - In the end we had 6, unfortunately Alex was poorly and Leon had transport issues. 200 children turned up from all over the country for the event.
Well done to Ethan Lancaster who managed 4 out of 5 to claim 2nd prize in U11B section.
Lawrence, Lucy and William all performed really well to score 3 out of 5 and Sithun in only his 2nd competition played well to score 2.5, only losing 1 game
James Cooper went along for the experience and found it tough going but managed a win in round 5 to send him home happy and more determined than ever for future events.
The next event will be the Megafinal qualifier at Ashotn on Sat 23rd March.
Xmas Competition Results
Great fun at the latest Chess competition at Broadoak Community Centre in Ashton. Around 60 players played across 2 competitions in the Christmas event
Leon Li took 2nd place overall with 5pts out of 6
William Hardman-Elliott took 3rd place also with 5pts out of 6
Alex Hollingworth took 4th place with 4.5 out of 6 and would have won had he beat the overall winner in the last round. He was winning and she found an excellent winning move to deprive him.
Sithun Da Silva had an fabulous debut winning best newcomer prize with 4 out of 6
Everyone else performed admirably.
Ayaan unfortunately missed round 1 due to being late which was a shame as he won in rounds 2 to 5 but lost out in the final round.
Lucy Lowe had a mixed day to finish on 3.
Patrick Shaw started well winning 3 out of 4 and then losing the last two.
Likewise Austin had a good start but also lost his last two
Otis had a wobble mid competition but came good in rounds 5 and 6 to finish with 3.5
Nathan Li played in the senior event and scored his best score with 2.5 out of 5.
