cp4Our club juniors continue to go from strength to strength and turned in a stunning performance today at the NZ Chess Power Nationals

Kaeden Govender (Southwell) won the Junior school division of the with a clean slate score of  9/9, while Michael Lin won the Open (senior school) division with 8.5/9. Both earn the Power Chess Junior Master title as well as gold medals and certificates.  HBHS won the secondary school team event, beating long time holders, Mt Roskill College, by a point. Michael top scored  in that event, too, with 8/9 while the rest of the team all scored 6/9.



Congratulations to the Hamilton Boys High team and coach Graham Nolan on coming third at the national secondary school chess championships. Club stalwarts Max Michaeal Nathaniel and Eushin came clear third behind Macleans and Auckland Grammer. The team lost to Macleans 3-1,  had 2-2 against Auckland Grammer and Mount Roskill, and beat Kings and Avondale, all of which had been seeded in the top six. The result augurs well for next year as all four players will still be at school, and all are making steady improvement in their chess based on club rankings.
