Scottish Chess Championships Results

The 2015 Scottish chess championship was held in Edinburgh between the 11th and 19th of July. The only prize winner from Bon Accord was Hamish Olson who shared the under 2200 grading prize. Hamish and Jonathan Edwards were both in contention for the title of Scottish champion until they lost in the penultimate round to International Master Roddy McKay and Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard respectively. Notable games from Bon Accord players included Neil Irving getting a draw against International Master Mark Orr (and overlooking a mate in 3), and Carl Milton playing a very strange game in which he checkmated his opponent twice (for details see Andy Howie’s blog here).

Final scores (out of 9) for Bon Accord players were as follows:

  • Hamish Olson 5.5
  • Jonathan Edwards 5
  • Carl Milton 4.5
  • Richard Jennings 4.5
  • Neil Irving 4
  • Callum Smith 4
  • Leston D’Costa 3.5
  • Euan Gray 3
  • Stuthi Hegde 2
