Bury Junior Congress

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.
