GM David Howell Simul
GM David Howell returned to Harrow Chess Club for the annual simul where he took on thirty-nine members and guests. To add a twist this year, clocks were used with David having 90 minutes against each opponent’s 60 minutes. This timing meant he had less than two and a half minutes average thinking per game, including walking (running!) between boards. The final result for David was 31 wins, 5 draws, and 3 losses – all on time. A memorable evening which also raised £100 for the Colin Crouch Fund.. PHOTOS
Harrow juniors have qualified for the prestigious Terafinal in September. Akhilan Balasundaram and Austin Ivan both won silver medals in Boys U8 sections at recent Gigafinals; whilst Siena Gurjar became Girls U8 Ultima with a perfect 6/6 score. Congratulations to the three who received their awards from UKSCC director Sarah Longson.
