Junior adventures

Noah and Rose travelled up to Nottingham for the National Junior Chess Championships on 5th January. A highly competitive 3 day FIDE event with a packed schedule including ongoing training and analysis with FIDE trainers and titled coaches; the pair from Bexhill had a fantastic weekend.

Noah was in the U10s and came away with 3.5 points, Rose was in the U14 section and finished the weekend on 2.5 points.

On Saturday night, the organisers hosted 4 simul games which Rose took part in; selecting to play against IM Lorin D’Costa, coach for the England Women’s Team and a challenge she had been looking forward to for 3 years.

She was very happy to be the last player in the hall, battling for 2 hours 45 mins and coming away with a draw.

Rose also won a training prize of £50

Both of our juniors are looking forward to next year already. A highly recommended weekend.
