Mick Germaine 2024 - prize ceremony

Many congratulations to our club players who did really well at the Germaine cup 2024! We came 5th (Foxes led by Murray) and 6th (Badgers led by Jacopo).

Individual players games went as follows:

Murray – played superbly throughout, won a board prize, a future champion!!

Eldho – strong performance, showed agile gameplay in Kings Indian, genuine expertise!

Jacopo – bravely led his team, holding a superb draw (Queen versus Rook) to allow his team win in last round

Sean – confident play throughout, stylish

Rugile – she enjoys crushing her opponents

Andrew – the surprise package, winning so many games…..

Sam – stylish and aggressive, helping his team win matches

Julien – board prize, impressive first tournament!

Katie – all smiles as she took her opponents pieces….

Balu – fantastic wins, strong player

Pearse – found his feet quickly, very quick play, great confidence

Many thanks to Rugile’s Dad and Bibin (Eldho’s Dad) for acting as Team managers. Thanks also to John Delaney, Philip and Mariada for arranging everything. Our club has a fantastic group of parent volunteers, a credit to our area!

It is so clear that our junior club has a wealth of chess talent. We have 50 active players in our junior club. We were well represented by our players today! Imagine if 39 more of our juniors got to play in these Leinster wide competitions !!

(Note to parents: so, we must try to run a competition in Dublin 15 to help all our juniors play in these types of short time control events. They are ready…..!!)
