Sunday Children’s Chess Tournament held on 30 May 2010

Fifteen children competed in the Sunday Children’s Chess Tournament held at the Central School on 30 May.

Top placegetter for the day was Nathanael Tomlinson from Maryborough with 6.5 games out of 7. Second placegetter was Matthew Riggs of Bundaberg with 6 games out of 7. Third place was gained by Brandon Lowe of Maryborough with 5 games out of 7.

There were many upsets with the younger players often defeating the older players. This shows how the School Chess Clubs and the Sunday Tournaments are steadily improving the younger childrens playing ability.

In the section for players born between 1999 and 2004, three players tied for first place with 4 games out of 7 each. They were Timothy Harris, Keiran Wallwork and Allen Preshy, all from Bundaberg.

Many of the players will be competing in the Wide Bay North School Teams Championships at Shalom College on Monday 1 June.
