Flanagan Brothers conquer New York
At the weekend of April 6th, brothers Odin Flanagan (7) and Dylan Flanagan (5) competed against 30 children from the top chess-playing schools in Brooklyn NY at the 1st Annual Grace Church School and Brooklyn Friends School Chess Tournament, representing Warwick Academy Bermuda. The top 3 players’ scores from each school were combined to get an overall team score. With Odin and Dylan only being a team of two they competed a player down. Despite this, they achieved 1st Place in the under 8 section with a combined score of 5.5 out of 8. They go on to represent Bermuda at the CARIFTA Games to be held in Curacao next weekend, together with a team of 9 other youth players representing Bermuda.
