JUNIOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP ONLINE

2nd Round

Still a couple of matches to be completed but the result of the round so far is Josh Dickson J11 (880) with white winning against Rishi Vijayakumar J10 (1570)e!
This is a fantastic result by Josh and hopefully sign`s of improvement from Josh in such a short space of time. Ramit won both his games against Haoqi who seems to be stuck improvement wise. Hopefully once he starts playing OTB again we can change that! Still waiting for new junior Sean Lewis to start his campaign and see how good he is.

——————————————————-

First round completed and no major shock results as Rishi & Josh both won their two matches!

Early days yet and Ramit Kanodia has still to enter the fray!
