Anita’s heading for Greece

As this will be the last posting for ten days, it’s a good opportunity to wish 9-year old Anita Somton the best of luck in the forthcoming WORLD SCHOOLS CHESS CHAMPIONSHIPS.

Anita and her father Somton leave next Monday for a ten-day trip to Halkidiki in Greece that will involve nine daily games of up to five hours duration.   Anita is one of a 48-member squad of England players.   Playing in the Under 9 Girls section, Anita will be facing strong opponents from countries that include Kazakhstan, Turkey, Romania, India, Slovenia and Azerbaijan.

Anita is a member of the Bury Knights Junior Chess Club, which has awarded a grant of £250 to assist with travel and accommodation costs.

I will be on holiday until 10 May, so there will be no more postings until then.
