Chess Success

Local chess International Grandmaster John Emms played against 40 students in total from across the Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge area. He did not lose a game and drew only four games. Both Anja and Isabel put up a very brave and long fight. John Emms was so impressed by Isabel’s play that he awarded her a book prize.
