Husbands eases to chess title

Orlando Husbands of The Lodge School is the 2012 Barbados Rapid Chess Champion.

He won an exciting event held at the Sugar Cane Mall, Roebuck Street, St. Michael over the last weekend. Rapid Chess is played with each player having 30 minutes to complete their game and can lead to some fast paced and exciting finishes.

Husbands was joint leader of the tournament up to round four with his fellow schoolmate Yutien Poon as they had swept all before them to be on top with four points from four games.
