Bexhill juniors took a team of nine players to the Worth Grand Prix, everyone had a fantastic day and played some great chess.
In the U8’s we had Timmy Nguyen who scored an incredible 5/6 coming second!
We’re looking forward to seeing how he performs in the U8 championship this weekend!
In the U10’s we had Jaxson Foster and Noah Pearson both in their second ever tournament!
Jaxson in fact played Noah in the second round. He won and finished on two points.
Noah played the person who ended up winning the tournament in round 1 and was winning but made an unfortunate error under time pressure and lost but still managed to score 2 points.
In the U12’s we had Samuel Merchant, Harry Morter and Rose Burgess.
Harry won 3 points from 5 rounds and then got a draw in round 6 giving him a total of 3.5 points coming 5th and qualifying for the under twelves minor section at the London championships, as did Rose who got 3.5 points as well and the top girl trophy!
