Christ Church Chess Star
Posted on 28th Jan, 2017
Ivan Chetverikov, in Year 3, scored a notable success by winning the Oxfordshire County U-9 Trials held at Cumnor School this month.
In a field of 52 keen chess players, Ivan won all six games to finish in clear first place.
To top off this outstanding achievement, Ivan then went on to compete in the U-11 Trials against boys and girls two years older than him, ending up on 5/6 and only losing to the eventual winner. Ivan is the captain of the school's U-9 team, which is currently battling in the league to try and regain the county championship which Christ Church won in 2015.
