CJCC members have now enjoyed two online tournaments – one at www.chesskid.com and one at www.lichess.org
Last week George won our inaugural event at www.chesskid.com . He won two very close games with Xander and Luoke to finish on 100%. 20 children took part.
This week 30 children entered our tournament at www.lichessorg . Seb (VaultingShark) was our runaway winner but it was close for second. Bertie (JauntyCrocodile) just pipped Samuel (PureFranticPawn). Seb lives in Paris so becomes our first international winner.
We will alternate tournaments each week between the two sites (www.chesskid.com being more suitable for the younger players, www.lichess.org better for the older ones).
On our return to lichess on 12th May, we will (by popular request) have a Crazyhouse Tournament – where captured pieces join your army. This is the online solo version of Exchange Chess. More sensible chess before that on www.chesskid.com next week.
This Saturday (2nd May), CJCC host a tournament at www.lichess.org open to all Essex Juniors graded below 60 – those relatively inexperienced in tournament play.
