HBHS Chess Team Win in Waikato Open Chess Tournament

This past weekend a number of HBHS juniors participated in the B section of the Waikato Open Chess Tournament. This is the section in which most Adult Chess Club members would participate. Although their opponents generally had a lot more experience than our boys, the HBHS contingent showed good skill and plenty of willingness to learn.  Ben Wright and Max Stephens (pictured, right) were placed joint 2nd in their rating category. Eushin Kang (in action, right) had a very successful tournament winning his category prize, winning the William Lynn Cup for the Best Club Junior and sharing overall First place in the B section.  Congratulations to all our players!
