Wexford CHESS 'New Ross' CHESS results (Feb. 2014)

Children from throughout county gathered at Brandon House Hotel, New Ross, last Saturday for 1st Primary Schools chess event of the year. Event Director Eamonn Barrett delighted with large turnout of 85 and high standard of play. He congratulated Gorey CBS on, yet again, winning Best School Award.
This was individual, as opposed to team, competition with each player playing 7 games. As is standard in chess players get 1 for win, 0.5 for draw (or stalemate) and 0 for loss.
