With the knowledge that no over the board matches could take place this year, the MCA decided it should still have an award this season and came up with the brilliant idea of a Chess (Pools) Panel to assess the results of all the matches played. 

The MCA Chess Pools Panel used a series of Zoom Conferencing Sessions to thoroughly analyse the results of all the potential games over the whole season. The Individual Team line-ups were based on the previous seasons Squads and the panel used the sophisticated  AlphaZero Program and Stockfish 13 engine to make their final judgments.

In the end it was no surprise to see Atticus 2 come out on top once again.

The Silver Rook Trophy will be presented to the Club at the MCA AGM scheduled for late June at Aigburth Cricket Club.
