A long, long, final round. In an 80 minute game, Jaden had less than a minute on the clock at the end of his match. Although the team lost this round, they should be very proud their performance. With 3 draws across the top 3 boards against the competition's silver medallists, and a very narrow loss on board 4 against a very strong opponent, the team can be very proud of their efforts today. We also won every single reserves match over the weekend - very well done.
The result in the final round is shown in the attached link.
There will be a full report here later this week with another 'find the chess piece' photo of the team.
Well played Bury Knights!!!
In a tough 4th round, the Bury Knights secured a solid draw against a good side. Jaden drew against a higher rated player, Adam secured a really good win, Tom brought some points home with a draw, while Rowan lost his game. Amy won her substitute game.
And now onto the fifth and final round. Can we get another win?
Results of the 4th round at the links below.
This was the scene this morning at breakfast time in Telford. We have had more snow overnight and all is white. Jaden, Adam, Tom, Amy & a camera shy Rowan have now started the forth round as we look to build on a strong end to the first day. The success last night has led to a tough forth round with a battle expected.
After 3 tough rounds we are pleased to say that we have got a loss, a draw and a win. We progressed every round leading up to a win. First we played Sleepless knights 1 it was a great game but we lost 1.5 to 2.5.Adam John board two said it was a tough battle we just missed some great moves. The results for game one. Jaden Jermy 1 Adam John 0.5 Tom Roy 0 Amy John 0 Rowan Kent 1( as reserve).
Round 2 we played Welsh Dragons Red we had a great round drawing 2-2 with a higher average team. Jaden Jermy said it was a very unlucky to draw the game as we should of won but i was pleased with my win against another strong junior. The results from game two Jaden Jermy 1 Adam John 1 Tom Roy 0 (but had a fantastic game and didn't deserve to lose).Rowan Kent 0 Amy John 1(with a nice win)(as reserve)
One good thing to point out Tom and Jaden were the last two to finish !
Round 3 we played Chess in schools Community 1 Rowan Kent said i had a roaring game in reserves swinging back and forward all the way until the end with a ladder checkmate. We had a excellent round with a 2.5 to 1.5 win. The results from round 3 Jaden Jermy 1 Adam John 0.5 Tom Roy 0 Amy John 1 Rowan Kent 1( as reserve)
Overall Jaden Jermy 3 out of 3 playing strong players on board 1
Adam John 2 out of 3 unbeaten
Rowan Kent 2 out of 3 two reserves played
Amy John 2 out of 3 one reserve played
Tom Roy 0 out of 3 very unlucky but says he is going to win all the games tomorrow
