Abbey Wins Overall School Prize at Chess

26 Feb 18
Bury St Edmunds Chess Congress

Congratulations to R Kent, M Pommier, G Pommier and T Pommier who took part in the Bury St Edmunds chess congress on Sunday 18 February.

R Kent won the Under 9 section with 6 out of 6, whilst T Pommier came second equal with 4 out of 6.

In the Under 11 section G Pommier finished with 4 out of 6, equal second place girl and M Pommier got 2.5/6.

Their combined score of 16.5/24 was enough for The Abbey to win the overall schools prize. Results are below:

Woodbridge School:       16.5 pts
King’s Cambridge:          13.0 pts
St Edmund’s ‘A’:             12.0 pts
St Edmund’s ‘B’:             11.5 pts
Perse, Cambridge:           9.0 pts
Haslingfield Primary:      3.5 pts

Worth bearing in mind that if you picked the best performances from all the other teams and rolled them into one team, Woodbridge would still have won.

R Kent also seems to have jointly won the ‘Bury Area Chess Trophy’ by virtue of getting 6/6, shared with 2 other children who also got 6/6 in other sections.
