Many Leicestershire Juniors took part in the recent online UK Chess challenge, several qualifying for the gigafinals, and a select few making it through to the prestigious Terafinal stage. The finals were played over the weekend of the 5th and 6th of September, featuring most of the strongest junior players in the country. Amongst several excellent performances by members of the club I thought I should mention
Sasha Kerbel – scored 7.5 points in the U18 Terafinal 14th place overall
Lindsay Pyun – scored 6.5 points in the U12 Terafinal 5th highest girl
Sophie Mehta – scored 6 points in the U10 Terafinal, 10th highest girl.
Well done everyone who took part, I am sure we will have even more players in the Terafinals in years to come!
