The TSS chess squad hosted Nudgee College last Friday. Despite it being the Gold Coast Show Day holiday, the turnout for TSS was strong.
The two schools were closely matched and many games went for well over an hour. With the help of some forfeits in the lower divisions, the overall results were: TSS won 7 divisions and NC won 3 divisions.
The Senior Team played very well, narrowly defeating Nudgee 5 – 3. Heaven Elishav on Board 1 of the Senior Team was awarded player of the round for his win. The Premier Team fought very well but in the end only Taisei Fujii was able to overcome his opponent on Board 2 and the team went down 2 – 6.
The team looks forward to the final round of the GPS chess season this Friday against Anglican Church Grammar School when all schools travel to Nudgee College.
