QMGS v King Edwards Five Ways

Last Friday saw the first team in action against King Edwards Five Ways. It was another tough fixture for the first team, with all boards being very equally matched. In the end the it was another close loss for the first team, who eventually lost 4 games to 2. Well done to Sarvesh and Karthick for winning their games. Commiserations to Fahim Nasiri who lost his first game in the Birmingham Junior chess league for five years. (if my records can be trusted, but believe me it's been a long time!) Although disappointed Fahim was philosophical and will doubtlessly use defeat as means to improve rather than waste time with negativity and making excuses.

QMGS v Wolverhampton

After a heavy defeat to a very impressive Bishop Vessey's team the year sevens bounced back with a win against Wolverhampton Grammar. After an hour of chess consisting of two games per player QM eventually won 8 games to 4. Well done to Sulaimn Shafiq for winning both his games in his debut performance and to Piotr and Sujjan for both winning and drawing in their games.

The fourth team were also in action against Wolverhampton and eventually lost 4.5 games to 7.5 games. Well done to Vincent, Amanraj, Gabriel and Arjun who all managed to win a game.
