Gigafinal 2014

The Northern Gigafinal took place in Manchester on Saturday 5th July and Sunday 6th July. The U10 boys and girls played on the Saturday. The 10s and over played on the Sunday. A total of 6 rounds were played. In each round players received 30 minutes on the clock to play all their moves.

Section winners earned the title Ultimo (Boys) or Ultima (Girls) and qualified for the national Terafinal in August. Tie-break rules are used to determine the title of Ultimo/a. Those coming second or third qualified for the Challengers competition which runs alongside the Terafinal. Those scoring 3½ or more who didn't qualify for the Terafinal/Challengers are invited to a plate competition from which they may be selected to represent England at the European Schools tournament.
