3cs Results in European Cup
Magnificent performance from 3cs in European Cup. 7 games, 4 victories and a final position of 14th out of 36. Many of the best players in the world were playing in the competition in Turkey.
Wow how far has 3cs come since 1979 when it started in Chadderton!
CSC Competition Results
Today we had the first chess competition of the school year at Broadoak Community Centre, Ashton
There was an excellent turnout of 60 children of which we contributed 11 (all boys as it appears a number of the girls were involved with Harvest Church services).
As usual all of the children performed brilliantly, behaved perfectly and all of them seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.
We also had some success.
Jacob Hunt (5 wins out of 6) – 2nd place overall
Lawrence Moustafa (5 wins out of 6) – 3rd place overall.
William Hardman-Elliott (4.5 out of 6) – if he had won his last game he would have won the tournament.
Mustapha Dia and Jack Horsfall (4 out of 6) – Jack’s highest score so far
Ayaan Iltaf and Patrick Shaw (3.5 out of 6) – again both achieved their best scores to date.
Adam Hamer, Ethan Lancaster, Alex Hollingworth and Dylan Crothers (all 3 out of 6).
Thankyou as always to the parents for supporting the event.
Next competition, back to a Saturday,18th November.
European Chess Cup in Turkey
It makes me very proud to play for 3cs chess club and the fact we are one of only two chess clubs to qualify for the European Club Cup in Turkey this week. 3cs from little old Oldham join White Rose to represent England in the event this week. This prestigious event (the equvalent to the Champions League of football) lasts a week. On ratings we are ranked 23rd out of 36 clubs in the event.
