Last week, BIS Abu Dhabi hosted the Abu Dhabi Schools Chess Open for the second successive year. The competition, a team event, involved 55 players from 6 different schools – Amity, BSAK, Cranleigh, Raha, Repton, and BIS Abu Dhabi.
Such is the popularity and relative strength of chess at BIS Abu Dhabi, that we were able to field three teams (of 5 players) in the competition.
BIS Abu Dhabi’s A and B teams won through to the final, after winning their respective groups. BIS Abu Dhabi C, our third team, finished a creditable 9th place, as this was the first inter-school event for some of the players.
BIS Abu Dhabi A won the final 3-2, in a nail-biting finish that went to the last game. Raha A team were third in the competition.
Well done to our teams:
BIS Abu Dhabi A:
Hyomin B., Hanlei G., Jihoo L., Wonsup S., Owen R.
BIS Abu Dhabi B:
Zirui W., Aditeya A., Andrea B., Tuscan J., Barnabas T.
BIS Abu Dhabi C:
Musa M., Patrick C., Junyeong B., Younes L., Adam J.
In the following month we are scheduled to host a House Chess Competition for all interested students at BIS Abu Dhabi (watch this space!).
