Nigel Short Simultaneous Chess Match - Bolton School February 2017
Old Boy and grandmaster Nigel Short returned to Bolton School to inspire the current pupils who are chess players. His visit culminated in a simultaneous chess match against 23 pupils from across the Junior and Senior Schools.
Pupils aged 8 to 18 faced the grandmaster, with all of them lasting more than an hour and representatives from all four areas of the School making it past the two hour mark! The last two pupils in play were a Junior Boy and Senior Girl, who fell in quick succession after two and a half hours.
