Interschool Chess Tournament

Here is a report from our Chess mentor, Stewart Good, on a recent interschool chess tournament.

The P6&7 tournament this week included 18 school and club teams: 16 Edinburgh, 1 Linlithgow, 1 Dunbar.

Dalry beat James Gillespie’s, drew with St. George’s but lost to 4 other teams (3 were composite).

Captain Struan on board 1, had some close games against good opponents, but did not manage to score. He showed maturity, persisting without becoming upset.

Adhi, Adam and Fabio all scored 2 wins, including bouncing back from losses to win in a later round.This was the best tournament result yet for Adam and Fabio.

The final event is also for teams, on Sunday 4 March.
