Hi guys, yet anther post about tournament results. Everybody who has participated has done very well recently, and the club members have picked up 5 awards between them.
Firstly the Megafinal results. Angelo, Elliot, James, Josh, Tom, Ben, Nadia and Shazia all managed to qualify and now have the opportunity to play in the Gigafinal which will be held in Reading. This will take all the qualifiers of the Megafinals form the South of the UK and only the top three in each section will have a chance to qualify to the Terafinal, the final battle. Also, Ollie and Sebastian both should be mentioned after gaining three and a half points, only half a point away from qualifying.
Next the Colchester Grand Prix Event. we had 12 players participating; Our prize winners were Ben (1st in the U11s), James (1st
in the U18 Minor with 6/6), Elliot (2nd in the U18 Open), Nadia
(best newcomer) and Shazia (rating prize). Our other players were Zahra,
Gowsithan, Josh, Tom, Angelo, Luxathan and Scott (me). Everybody should be very proud of their results, at both tournaments.
Finally, a chess tip. Never eat too much junk food the day before a chess tournament. I found that out at Colchester, and lets just say I didn't feel the best. I hope to see you all at the club next week.
