On Saturday July 29th children from the Boys and Girls club of Greater Richmond. The 4 contestants were Christopher Collins, Anton Wilson, Iyana Scroggins, and London Rise. The play format was a Quad. This is an everyone plays everyone setting.
Here, 12 year old Head Coach for Boushall Middle School, Giovonnie Pearson watches the board as an assistant referee. G-Man as he is called is ensuring that the game is recorded and that if a piece is touched and the player wants to make a claim, there will be no disputes.
After 2 rounds of grueling battle Alton has 1.5, Christopher has 1.5, Iyana has 1, and London has 0. What’s always good recovery food after a couple games of tournament chess? That’s right ……… Pizza
When the battle is done, Alton and Christopher are tied for 1st, Iyana get’s second and London takes 3rd!
