Brentwood Open 1st March

We had over 100 children from Year 1 to Year 12 take part in the 5th Brentwood Open on Sunday. Brentwood School were generous supporters of the event and great hosts.

The top section was internationally rated with the bottom section for ungraded younger players so there was something for everyone. Full details will appear at www.britishchess.co.uk

14 CJCC players took part, featuring in all 4 sections. It was particularly nice to see some in their first individual tournament.

Three of our debutants in the U11 Minor - Yashas, Shrishti and Hugo - came joint 3rd with 4/6. Hugo won my Player of the Day trophy for his score (he is only in Year 1) and attitude.

In the top section Olga also got 4 points, only losing to the players who finished 1st and 2nd.

The whole tournament took place in a great spirit of competitive enjoyment which was a credit to the players and to everyone involved with the smooth running of the event.
