Junior Club end of term tournament

Term 1 finished for the juniors this week with the conclusion of our T1 Tournament, which was held over two nights and comprised 7 rounds with a 5 minute time control. Devin Direen was the clear winner with a perfect 7 points and collected the gold medal. Orlando Liu came second with 5.5 to win the silver medal, half a point ahead of Tumaka Martin who took out the bronze. Congratulations to all who participated. Term 2 chess starts for juniors on 3rd May.

Meanwhile in the seniors, Round 3 of the Kingston Memorial tournament saw Andy Hicks score a upset win over much higher rated Gordon Lyall, while Levi Paxton continued his unbeaten streak with a win over Geoffrey Gunawan. At the half-way stage he leads, a point ahead of Andy, Geoffrey and David Scott. Current results here.

Next week will be a fun night of Fischer-Random.
