Chess at Eton College
Reading School V's Eton College
Reading School’s chess team (consisting of Matthew Wadsworth, Peter Isaksen, Nikhil Kadambadi, Alex Vanlint, Shaan Mohan and Akshay Velraj) continued their successful season by winning 4-2 at Eton College on Tuesday 27 February . The highlight of the match was undoubtedly Akshay’s checkmate in less than 5 minutes, although the overall victory was not secured until almost 2 hours later. This impressive performance means that the Reading School moves to the next round of the National Schools’ Championship, which will see them play against Abingdon School on Friday 23 March, with the hope of improving on last year’s 3rd place position nationally.
