Did you know there are more combinations in chess than all of the atoms in the universe?
The Queen’s Gambit didn’t have a look in when Deele College’s first Chess Tournament got underway on Wednesday afternoon.
40 players took part, including Mr. Flood, Ms. Bonnar, Mr. Shields, Mr. Monaghan and Mr. Hackett.
The teachers played hard but needless to say the students came out on top!)
After 2 hours of mind boggling battles, 16 players were through to the play offs.
The winners were:
1st prize Josh Mc Goldrick 1st year
2nd prize Shaun Campbell 2nd year
3rd prize Patrick Sweeney 6th year
The tournament was organised by Ms. Patrice Gallagher and Chess enthusiast Sean Mc Carroll. A special thank you to Sean for all his hard work in promoting Chess in Deele College.
