It was a hotly contested conclusion to the chess project as the players fought a tough chess game. After watching the final part of the 'Grass Arena' drama, about chess champion John Heaney, the board was set in preparation for the showdown!.
The ultimate winner was Bernard, who adopted a strong attacking philosophy to his game. His opponent, Robert, attempted desperately to defend, but Bernard's use of rampaging castles supported closely by the queen, proved too much for Robert's defence, which crumbled quickly after sacrificing his queen earlier in the game.
This concluded the project with Bernard collecting his prize.
