Greenfield Pupils' success at Chess Tournament

Success for pupils at local Chess Competition

Two pupils from Greenfield School participated in the Delancy Chess Mega Final at Tormead School, Guildford last week. Both Rutwik (Yr 6) and Vikram (Yr 2) thoroughly enjoyed themselves at this exciting event. 

Vikram was taking part in his first competitive tournament.  For his 6 matches he was drawn against some of the higher seeded players, but was successful in winning 3 games, losing 2 but drawing his last game to accumulate 3.5points.  Unfortunately missing the cut for the next round by half a point.

Rutwik won 4 of his 6 games, being in the top 4 at one point and on course for the 'top of the 2' trophy.  Unfortunately, he lost his 2 games after very close fought matches.  However, by winning 4 games he accrued enough points to qualify for the Giga Final at Twickenham in July.

Congratulations to both boys.
