No article yesterday (ran out of time), so there are two today. Here’s the first:
Anita Somton won her first game in the European Youth Championships today. She played an unrated girl from Armenia. The photo shows her before the start of the game.
Tomorrow she plays another unrated girl from Georgia. You can follow her progress here. Georgia is three hours ahead of the UK, so Round 2 starts at 12.00 GMT on Monday.
Entries for the Bury St Edmunds Congress have already exceeded last year’s total of 143. With a maximum entry of 172, you will need to register soon if you want to play, but haven’t entered yet.
