5-MINUTE CHAMPIONSHIP JUNIOR
Well we had 10 juniors in this event, with the bookies split on who would win on the night. Charvi Kanodia J15 was odds on according to her brother Ramit! But then Ramit J10 has the most experience and a good first grade! Then there are the Akula brothers, Krish J10 & Rishabh J12. Of course you could never right off Anish Chaudhuri J11. To further complicate matters 7 year old Haoqi Zang had an outside chance to win or at least have a say in who does! And then there was the new kid on the block in speedy Max.
Congratulations to Ramit Kanodia for becoming the Castlehill Junior 5-Minute Champion 2017-18 with a perfect 9 out of 9! Krish Akula & Anish Chaudhuri finishes runners-up on 6.5 points.
All juniors seemed to enjoy the tournament. While they were playing you could have heard a pin drop! I think they all wanted to win this one and get their name on the trophy!
Thanks to everyone that took part and once again well done Ramit!
