SAE - St. Michael's Saturday, February 25

Quite a mix at this event with 23 entrants (9 new to tournament chess) from 16 different schools. After their draw in round 5, ex-St Michael's pupil Ben Vandersluis and Berkshire's top under 9 player, Roy Zhang, were both unbeaten on 5½ out of 6. Not for the first time sthis season, the trophy would be decided by a 5 minute blitz game. Although ahead on material and position, Ben had used up too much time, and the prize went to Roy.

The minor trophy, for the best result for a player graded under 500, also had to be decided in a quick-fire playoff, with Andrew Poile emerging as the winner.
