House Chess has established itself as part of Michaelmas term's Inter-House Competitions, and this year's tournament was one of the best. The star individual performance was by Ross Tselos of Southwell-Sander's, who won all four of his games on Board 1. But the battle for top spot was really between School House, James's, Franklin's and Austin's, whose teams of three all included at least one School team player and other good players on the lower boards. In the end School House, led by James Beckinsale on Board 1, took the trophy by defeating Southwell-Sander's in the final round, thus winning in all four rounds.

The full results were as follows. (Teams are listed first by total match points and then by game point difference.)

1. School (4, +5)
2. James's (3, +4)
3. Franklin's (2, +4)
4. Austin's (2, +3)
5. Southwell-Sander's (2, 0)
6. Crescent (1.5, -1)
7. O'Doherty's (1.5 -3)
8. Morgan's (1.5, -5)
9. Border's (0.5, -7)

Congratulations to all involved on a fine competition.
