The Sixth Teesside Megafinal: Results

The Sixth Teesside Delancey UK Schools' Chess Challenge Megafinal took place yesterday at Yarm School's magnificent Princess Alexandra Auditorium.

We sold out of all the 150 places a week and a half before the closing date.

All five sections featured big battles for the main titles and is was great to see all of the players playing their part in making the day such a fabulous celebration of chess, whether or not they became champions.

Thank you to everyone who supported the event, including, of course, the magnificent control team of Johannes Grundman, Catherine Lloyd, Richard Harris and Mike Pointon
