World Youth Championships latest

Suffolk players Justin Tan and Adam Taylor are finding life tough in the Under 18 Open section of the World Youth Championships in Greece.   After four rounds, Justin is on 2½ points and Adam is on 2.

Justin is yet to play an opponent who is higher-rated than him, having lost in Round 3 to a lower-rated player from Iran.   However, if he can win the next few rounds, he should have an opportunity to challenge the top seeds in this eleven-round event.   Today he plays an untitled Georgian opponent.

Adam has won both his games with White, but has lost his two Black games.   Today he faces a lower-rated opponent from Armenia.

Live games can be viewed from 13.00 GMT daily (except tomorrow Friday, which is a rest day) here.   Justin’s game is on today’s live boards.
