British Rapidplay

Well done to the four Kent Juniors who travelled up to Leeds over the Halloween weekend to take part in the British Rapidplay tournament.

Charlie Metcalfe and Saahil Bansal both played in the U11 trial qualifier on the Saturday and and Charlie played in the U12 event on the Sunday.Jacob and Mikey Watson both played in the main tournament.

Jacob played in the intermediate section (U145) and also got 6½/11 which secured him a grading prize and also a half-norm for the national junior chess squad. Mikey played in the major (U170) section and got 6½/11 points with some good wins against higher graded adults.
