The St Paul's Chess tournament concluded this week with Grade 10 Daniel Oberton defending his title against Grade 9 Steven Cooper.
The tension was thick and the spectators grew in numbers, quietly supporting their favorite player. Steven calculated every move carefully, but it was not enough to break Daniel's defence and perfectly placed pieces and Steven eventually tipped his king in defeat.
Congratulations to Daniel Oberton, the 2007 chess champion. Thank you to all the players who participated, especially to the grade level winners who made the final four so exciting.
