House Chess Tournament

House Chess Tournament

The first Kingswood Community College House Chess Tournament took place in the school on Friday morning.

There was a fantastic level of participation with 64 total competitors on the day as the tournament got underway. All matches were played fairly and began and ended with a handshake. Within an hour, 64 had became 32. There was some extremely competitive matches, with great jubilation and heartbreak upon their ends. Unfortunately due to time constraints, matches had a 10 minute chess clock timer and stalemates were to be decided by a coin flip.

As the group grew smaller, it was clear that the final would be extremely close. When it came down to the finals, the tension was palpable.
