Whoever is responsible, keep up the good work. Thought it would be difficult for you Sarah since I believe you are still in the UK but the reports seem to credit you as your name is at the end of the two posted.

Thanks for pointing that out. I don't know why my name was on either of the posts, I can take NO credit for either of them... I only supplied the photo. I sent an email to have it changed so the proper person gets credit.

Its great to see so many playing, for many it will be their first experience of international competition, nerves will have played a large part in first round results and also experience of such competitions. I am sure all players will benefit from the experience and it is nice to see the new policies in action. The fact the second round results were much better than the first is of course good but the most important factor is that it should be a positive experience for all the players, through which they can learn and come back stronger. They can then use the experience as a building block for when they attend a similar event next time, and also in their day to day chess.

In my opinion the fact that we have sent a large team to this tournament is a step in the right direction, the fact their second round results were so much better that the first partly shows how quickly these kids learn when given the opportunity :( (they all keep beating me)

I believe Hillary Altman is responsible for the reports! There will be some on my blog too: http://www.chevanneschessacademy.com/category/blog/ (and there's another adorable photo of Callaghan!) but I was behind with the results, so only round 2 pairings are up. Was coaching fo 12 hours yesterday so was a tad busy! Will update soon!

From ECF website:-
Round 3 final results are in – we earned a total 9 wins for England, and one 4hr long, hard-won draw by Anna Purvis, the youngest girl playing under 13. Imogen Camp also earned her 1st win for Wales. She says ” I set up a trap for my Romanian opponent and she fell for it. She thought it was a swap, but she lost a knight.” Jeff Tomy and Callaghan McCarty-Snead both aced their under 7 games, giving Callaghan our team lead with 2½ out of 3. Other winners are Joshua Altman, Max Elliott (‘My first international win!’ – Max), Yang-Jian Zhou, Eleanor Hapeshi, Akito Oyama and Samuel McConnell.

Joseph Dalton also won – and was impromptu host to an ambassadorial exchange: his Pakistani competitor offered him a coin prior to the outset of their game, 1/100 of a rupee, for goodwill and perhaps a bit of a wink, and Joseph responded equivalently (he thinks) with 50 pence! Joseph went on to defeat and later befriend him!

- Hillary Altman

Keep up the good work, Hillary. Your daily reports offer so much more than the bare results and game scores on the official wscc website. Best wishes to all.
Daily extracts from both are going up on the Chess notice-board at school. And both James and Joseph have provided 'games of the day' for my after-school chess clubs this week.

This is super! This tournament - where so many children have gone to play - is going to inspire a lot of children back home and also give valuable experience to those attending.

When the children return, they will strengthen chess at a grassroots level for all the children/adults, that they then play.

From an organisational point of view, there were some who were worried that we would not be able to send so many children and it would be difficult to manage. It does appear 'overall', that we do seem to have managed it rather well.

Well done to Phil and Jim and to all the coaches/parents/children out there flying the flag! We are all very impressed back home and good luck for the rest of the tournament!

PS The smiley photos on the front page of the ECF website are brilliant - keep them coming in and can we have some more team photos?
