Mega Chess Champion
Imagine how thrilled we were to hear that Misha, Year 6, came first the U12 section of the second Megafinal of the 2020 UK Chess Challenge at the weekend. Misha, along with 190 other competitors, took part in this big national annual competition which was played online this year for the very first time in its history.
Misha’s success is all the more commendable as playing online chess is hugely different to playing face-to-face in a competition and takes an awful lot of getting used to. In addition to adapting superbly to remote learning at school, Misha has busied himself with keeping up his chess practice, which has certainly paid off.
Misha is through to the Gigafinal next Saturday and we are looking forward to hearing how he gets on. Good luck from all at Lochinver House, we are incredibly proud of you!
