This year the Cambridge County Chess Championship was held at the New England Complex, Lincoln Road, Peterborough, on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th November. Stamford Chess Club was well-represented at this annual standard play event, with four of our players making up the 32 places available.
Players had 70 minutes + 15 seconds per move-made thinking time. Matches were hard fought but by competition’s end there were some very good results to report. Richard Stokes won second prize in the ECF Under-140 grading section with 3/5. Juniors Scott Merriman and Nicholas Lees won 20 pounds each with 2.5/5. David Lees finished sixth equal with 3/5. Well done to all involved.
Stamford players are hoping that the good results will be reflected in higher gradings and look forward to the next opportunity to play competitively.
The official results were as follows:
