Crowthorne Win the Premier Precision Cup!

The Premier Precision Cup is the Berkshire Chess Association grade handicapped knockout competition, in which the grading difference between the two sides is used to determine the score required to win the match.

The final between Maidenhead and Crowthorne took place on June 18th, and the grading difference meant that Crowthorne needed to win by a minimum of 3.5 to 2.5 to win the match. Crowthorne managed to score exactly 3.5 points (see scorecard) and are thus this year’s winners of the PP Cup! Despite the 5 draws, each game was hard fought, with the result of game and match in doubt until the last game had finished.
