GP5 at Sevenoaks School on Sunday 17th February

Just a reminder that the KJCA GP5 tournament is this coming Sunday 17th February at Sevenoaks School, High St, Sevenoaks TN13 1HU

It would be great to see our young chess players to the event and hope that it will be a fun day of chess and meeting up with friends.

Please register as soon as you can at:  http://www.kjca.org/event/192

Please note some of the arrangements we have made with the school:

We have use of the Solefields car park, which is in Solefields Road, opposite the entrance to the school. There are 60 spaces.  Once parked, there is an underpass to walk across to the school buildings and Block D which is where our tournament and parents area will be.  
Please do not use any other areas/spaces in the school complex to park your cars. KJCA will have parking attendants on hand to help out and ensure that we are using the correct part of the school grounds. 

In between the chess rounds, please remember that parents and carers have responsibility for their children. Primary aged children should not be left alone, unless you have agreed direct responsibility of another adult or parent, and please ensure that you know where they are and that they are playing safely at all times.

The school has asked that there are no footballs or ball games allowed in case of any damage.  

It is great that we have a venue such as Sevenoaks School for our tournament.  
t is a large and prestigious school and there are always a lot of different events and activities going on, as well as some school boarders and young people on site.  Please ensure that everyone treats all facilities with respect and do not allow the children to wander into other areas of the school. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday

Opening move for Shreyas at round seven of the World Championships

Kent junior player, Shreyas Royal, was honoured to be asked to take the opening ceremonial move at round seven of the World Championship match between defending champion, Magnus Carlsen, and challenger, Fabiano Caruana.

The World Championship is the pinnacle of top level world chess and the event is currently being held at The College in Holborn, London. 

It is an intense battle of twelve standard play games over three weeks and then, if still equal, the match will go to rapidplay, blitz and eventually armageddon to decide who will be the world's top chess player for the next two years.

The two Super Grandmaster players are very close in grade and, so far, all the games have been extremely close with lots of tension and have resulted in draws.

As round seven began, Shreyas made the first ceremonial move for Magnus. Then, before the serious business of an intense chess match began, Shreyas was also delighted to get a large smile and a high-five from the defending champion.

When asked about the day, Shreyas said:

"It was a dream come true for me to be there and get lots of picture with Magnus and Fabiano at such an amazing event.  I also sat with GM Judit Polgar and IM Anna Rudolf to do some live commentary which was excellent.

"I met lots of other top players, arbiters, media and learned about the whole event and, of course, played a few games of chess.  It was a great experience and thanks to all for arranging".
