Battle of the Sexes 2022 - Round 7

Feb 01, 2022

John Saunders reports: Round seven of the #GibChess Battle of Sexes, held at Gibraltar’s Garrison Library on Monday 31 January, resulted in a 6-4 victory for Team Sabino with the black pieces, increasing their overall score to 37-33 – a lead of four points. But, once again, it could have been very different if Team Pia had taken all the chances offered in what was a particularly tense and hard-fought round.

Before play started the event was honoured to be visited by the Governor of Gibraltar, His Excellency Sir David Steel, and Mrs Edwina Haynes, Honorary Consul of Georgia both who took a great interest in proceedings and spoke to players and officials before play got underway.
