10-year old Anita Somton returned today from the European Youth Championships where she finished on 4½ points from nine games. This was a slightly disappointing result, as she was on 4/6 before finishing with two losses and a draw.
Nevertheless, to finish midway in such a strong event is no disgrace. It must have been extremely tiring for one so young to have to play nine long games over the 10-day period.
No doubt she will bounce back with some good games in the League – she is due to play at Bury tomorrow!
