Gregory, Billy and Ajay 'challenge' for top prizes

At the weekend, Gregory competed in the Challenger section of the Wightlink Isle of Wight Chess Congress, an adult tournament rated by the English Chess Federation. He scored a fantastic 4.5/5 to win the tournament outright, receiving a beautiful glass trophy and the £75 first prize for his efforts.

Then on Sunday, Billy and Ajay competed in the Coventry Chess Academy Rapidplay. Ajay played in the Junior section and scored a fine 3.5/5 which included a draw against a member of the England national junior team. Billy played in the Master's section and scored a very creditable 2.5/5 in a section which included British chess legend International Master John Cooper who also presented both boys with their prizes at the tournament's end.
