A total of 92 children played in the Bury St Edmunds Junior Chess Congress today.
There were four sections: Under 18, Under 11, Under 9 and ‘My First Tournament’. The latter section was an innovation, designed to attract children who otherwise might be afraid to play in an age-group section, where there are usually some strong players.
The following won trophies and are pictured below:
Under 9 – Amy John (Bury Knights)
Under 11 – Arnav Srivastava (Cambridge)
Under 14 – Gavith Dharmasena (Cambridge) – best u14 in the u18 section
Under 18 – Karthik Saravanan (Gt Yarmouth)
My First Tournament – – Ben Palmer (Ipswich Junior)
A more detailed report will follow in a couple of days’ time.
