Galway come second in National Club Championship

Galway Chess Club came second in the National Club Championship, held in Dublin on the weekend of 26-28 April. In fact we came first equal with two other teams (Elm Mount and Ennis), winning four matches and losing one. Although we beat both Elm Mount and Ennis (who didn’t play each other), the tie-break system used was game points scored, and in this we came second, just losing out to Elm Mount because they played much weaker teams than we did.  Our team consisted of Anand Kumar S, Maryna PetrenkoPete Morriss, Diego Pereiro Rodriguez, Brian Gallagher, and Alex Drimbarean. Our match results were:

Round 1: Galway 3½ – Elm Mount 2½

Round 2: Galway 4 – UCD 2

Round 3: Galway 5½ – Ennis ½

Round 4: Galway 2 – Malahide 4

Round 5: Galway 3½ – Gonzaga 2½
