ACS Chess Championships
Held at St Michael’s Grammar School
Monday 22 May 2017
What a great competition today!
The final round showdown between St Leonard’s and Westbourne had everyone on the edge of their seats. St Leonard’s were half a point ahead before the final round, so a 3-3 draw was enough for them, while Westbourne needed 3.5 points to come first. The bottom 4 boards split 2-2 and Boards 1 and 2 went right down to the wire. Very late in the piece, on Board 2 St Leonard’s appeared to have things their way, although Westbourne was doing their best to be resourceful. So it didn’t seem at all likely that Westbourne would be able to muster the additional 1.5 points they required. But suddenly as time ran short St Leonard’s worked out their endgame and won. Simultaneously Westbourne’s player 2 resources bore fruit and she also won. Westbourne had won 4-2 to steal the championship.
Thank you to St Michael’s for hosting the event and for the wonderful hospitality.
