Somerset Junior Chess Grand Prix & Finals

Last Sunday was the last in the series of tournaments for the Somerset Junior Chess Grand Prix.  It was a little mix of emotions this year having missed one tournament due to sickness and snow cancelling another.  Nathanael knew this tournament was a tight competition amongst the stronger players.

This time it was held in Twerton, Bath where there are a lot of additional players that join the tournament from the chess hub of Bath!  Competition was strong with some long games.  Nathanael came out with 2 wins out of the 6 which meant he came 5th overall in the tournament for the year.

Unfortunately he missed out on gaining one of the top places to gain a place in the final……or did he?

It turns out one of the top four could not make the final so Nathanael has now been invited to take part in the finals on the 30th June 2019 at Millfield.  He plays 3 games against the top player first then depending on the result will play the loser or winner of the other game.

Congratulations Nathanael on making it the final again this year.
