At the Secondary Chess Inter-School held at Saint Stephen’s College last week, Somerset’s streak of victories was halted. In a close last round battle, King’s Christian College overcame our top team and won gold in Premier.

Somerset’s Team 1 and 2 won overall silver and bronze respectively.

In the Premier, Charlie Liu had a great result, winning individual gold on Board 3 with 6/7. Oliver Yang also scored 6/7 (only loss was to Charlie). Kabilan Manuneedhi and Byron Morris also did well with 6/7, but just missed out on individual gold for their boards.

In A Division, notable performances from Somerset included: Kei Naito (5.5/7 and = fourth), Abhinay Panda (5/7, = sixth), Ethan Chant (4.5/7), Aditya Naik (4.5/7) and Michael Dobroskok (4.5/7).
