January Childrens Chess: a primary one comes second

Calvin Patterson one of the youngest players we have had at our events came second in the Primary Section with an excellent score of 4 out of 7.

At his first tournament Calvin distinguished himself scoring 4 out of 7 coming 2nd overall. Whilst Phoebe Patterson a P3 gained 3rd place. Two young players to watch. The primary section had 6 players including the Ulster U10 Champion Honor Parissis who has just returned from playing the London Junior Chess Championship coming 7th out of 87 players in the Under 10 Minor competition. Honor won this tournament only dropping 1/2 point to Andrew Farquharson. Andrew was the draw King managing to draw 4 games. It was good to see some new faces. The format of tournament was all play all 5 rounds followed by a two round swiss with the players points used to pair. So 7 rounds in total.

P5 Winner: Calvin Patterson (P1), 2nd Pheobe Patterson (P3)

P6 Winner Honor Parissis, 2nd Ben  Wilson, 3rd Andrew Farquharson

P7 Winner Sara Kelly
