Congratulations again to Rishi Vijayakumar J9 on finishing equal 2nd (3 way tie) on 5½ points and qualifying for the “TERAFINALS GRAND FINAL” for under 10`s! The final takes place at Blenhelm Palace OTB on Sat & Sun 9th-10th Oct 21. (Still subject to “Fair Play” rules and checks)
In a very strong field of 50 players, Rishi showed everybody else what we already know; he can play chess a little bit! It was such a strong field that Rishi`s grade was the lowest of the first 18 player finishers.
He played: 7 matches: Won 5; Dwn 1; Lost 1 = 5½ points.
Castlehill Chess Club Dundee is so lucky to have so many good juniors, especially during these tough times. Rishi is our top junior and boy has he come on during this pandemic!
We wish him well in the “GRAND FINAL” and I am sure some of us will keep an eye out on the day(s)!
