From Peter Turner:-
Evening Ben, yes we have your entry - thanks, currently you are 2nd seed.
Clive, not sure if Matthew has arranged the sunshine but it is probably on his 'to do list'.

Re: World Schools Chess Championships 2012

Well done everyone involved, following the excellent reports and photographs was the next best thing to acually being there. I'm sure the youngsters (and parents) will have learned a great deal from this experience.

Re: World Schools Chess Championships 2012

Latest from Hillary:- Well – all but two results are in. On our best day yet we can report 9 wins and 5 draws so far. That places Akito Oyama and Callaghan McCarty-Snead on 4 points and Joshua Altman on 3½. Wins were earned by Akito, Callaghan, Jake Liang (in a quick tactical game), Luke Remus-El...

Re: World Schools Chess Championships 2012

The England Team seem to be sharing a marvellous experience in Romania, not just the chess but also social interaction with other youngsters from around the world. The latest posting on the ECF website is a photograph and if anyone were to ask, "Why did we send a team?" then I'd say, "read the repor...
