Linton Triumph in East Anglia Championships

The Linton chess club and players have achieved a clean sweep in the East Anglian Championships (covering Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire) by winning all three main events.  I’m sure this has not been achieved by any club before.

Over the weekend of 7/8 March Chris Davison won the individual title and Aarnavh Trivedi won the junior championship.  And on 15 March the Linton Tigers team of Ashley Stewart, Chris Davison, Kevin Clark and Paul Kemp convincingly won the team championship.

We also had success in the supporting events.  Yoav Pilowsky-Bankirer won the other junior award on 7/8 March, the prize for the best junior graded under 170.  And at the team championships the Linton Bears and the Linton Wolves both shared first place in their respective grade-limited events.
