This term the boys and girls of chess club have been engaged in a battle to crown Albany Hills chess champion. After weeks of friendly but determined competition it came to a final showdown on Wednesday between Oscar from 5/6 CR and Harry from 4SS. In normal life both Oscar and Harry are very mild mannered and unassuming but all that changes when there is a chess board in front of them. It was game on from the minute the chess pieces were set up. Neither boy gave an inch but gradually it was Harry who wore Oscar down with his aggressive, no holds barred play. Both boys took their defeat and victory in good style. Congratulations to Harry as the 2013 Albany Hills Chess Champion. Congratulations to everyone who took part and enjoyed themselves in the process.
