CSC at the World Chess Championships- Round 9

For Round 9 CSC invited pupils from St Joachim's Primary in Newham, Miles Coverdale Primary in Hammersmith and St Mary's Catholic School all the way from Newcastle! The distances our chess pupils are willing to go to witness the biggest chess event around is a credit to their dedication to chess.

Its Nil -Nil for Newham vs Hammermsith!

This game just got serious...

Keep up the chess playing and these pupils from Miles Coverdale Primary may get to sit in those Champion seats themselves one day.

World Champion Magnus Carlsen and the Challenger Fabiano Caruana weren't the only two titled chess players there that day, CSC pupils had the good fortune to be tutored by none other than International Master Ali Mortazavi!
