West of England Junior Chess Championships

Well done to all those Kent Juniors who travelled down to Swindon to participate in the West of England Junior Chess Championships on the 22nd and 23rd February.

Kent was represented across all the age groups, from the beginners and U8 championship through to the U16 Major section.

The best result of the weekend was achieved by Jacob Watson, who scored an excellent 5½ out of 6 in the U12 Challengers, winning the section outright.

Michael Green also did very well in the U16 Major section and got the Grading prize. Girinath Haridas, Jessica Wen  and Jackson Wen also competed in the older sections.  

Playing some quality games in the U12 Championship section were Anantha Anilkumar, Francesco Bernadini, Mikey Watson, Emily Green, Ximan Mao and Guarav Kocher.  

Kent was represented in the U10 section by Freddie Nunn and Rajeiv Ratesan, and in the U9 by  Ranesh Ratesan and Navienaah Haridas.  They all played very well. There was a special mention for Navienaah at prize giving for her tactical gameplay and she received the controller prize. 

In the U8s, Robert Akeya-Price, had a superb result with 4 ½ out of 6, and secured joint 2nd place.  Radha Ratnesan also did very well and was rewarded by jointly winning the best girl prize.

See http://www.englishchess.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/WiltshireWoEPrizes14.pdf for a link to the prizegiving. (note: a number of our Kent players are being shown as Surrey!)

My First Chess Tournament - by Roving Reporter Jamie Owen

Below is an article written by Jamie Owen (year 4 - St Thomas's, Sevenoaks) describing his first ever KJCA tournament:

I was in the U9 group in which there were 38 boys and girls from all parts of Kent. The helpful organisers showed us where to play the games. We had to play using the clock but that was easy to pick up. The played time of the game varied a lot. I lost the first two matches so it made me play harder because I wanted to win some matches. I felt worried when I came to the room where we play chess at my third match but I won! I then felt more confident and won the next three matches. In the end I came seventh. I was very pleased with my result. I recommend it to other children because it was really fun.
