School National Tournaments – Sivaram Excels

Posted: 12/10/2015 by Ian in Club News

Several club members participated in the recent interschool national chess champs held in Palmerston North. Teams from Hamilton Boys High, Fairfield Intermediate, and Hukanui primary took part in their  respective divisions. Placings were 4th = (of 10) for HBHS, 5th= (of 12) for Fairfield, and 6th= (of 12) for Hukanui. Special mention to Sivaram who managed 6 points out of a possible 7 on board 3. As his score was five wins and 2 draws, he managed to come through without a single loss. Even though this was a team event,  individual commendations for Waikato players go to the following

Board 3 HBHS  Sivaram Monoharan 6/7 1st equal
Board 4 HBHS  Deo Krishman 4/7 4th
Board 3 Fairfield Eushin Kang 5.5/ 7 1st equal
Board 4 Fairfield Tiara Mayo 4.5/7 3rd equal
