The final round of the Crowborough Junior Chess Championship was an exciting end of season tribute to all our players. Henry our defending champion needed to win his final game and hope that long term leader Lucy slipped up and lost her final game. Both players had tough games against Reece and Theo who as expected did not make it easy for the leading pair. Reece despite some friendly moans to Gill about his massive upfloat played superbly against Henry, liquidating a good middlegame into a winning endgame and when Henry’s clock fell Reece was about to capture Henry’s only passed pawn and leave himeself with an easy Bishop and 3 pawns vs 4 pawns ending.
