Delancey UK Schools Chess Challenge 2018

And the winner is...

Sidharth Panicker (Year 10) has regained the title as Gosford Hill’s Delancey Chess Tournament winner 2018 with the last match culminating in a rivalrous encounter with his brother Advaith Panicker (Year 8).

Approx. 40,000 children from over 1,200 schools take part in the challenge. The event starts with a 7 week tournament in school, qualifying students then attend the local Oxfordshire Meg afinal. Students who qualify from the Megafinal can then go on to the Southern or Northern regional Gi gafinals, with the National Terafinal deciding the winner in the summer. Students who attended the Megafinal were Sidharth Panicker, Advaith Panicker, Max Moss, Adam Jenner, Idris Tanvir and Freya Page-McFadyen. I am pleased to announce that Advaith Panicker has successfully qualified for the Gigafinal.

All players in this year’s tournament were treated to a visit from County Chess Master & English Chess Federation Coach, Carl Portman (sporting his combat attire). Carl brought some progressive chess move ideas to the table and demonstrated ‘a random mix of fun and punchy stuff for all students to get involved in’.
