Durham Junior championships 2013

The Durham Junior championships 2013 took place at  Coxhoe Village Hall on Saturday 11th May 2013.

The under 9 tournament was well attended with 12 children fighting for the top spot.

Harry Wilson from the Darlington chess club was in action, pictured below

Harry finished on 5/6 which secured him second place.

First place went to Bobby Green with a perfect 6/6.

Another Darlington faithful Aidan Garner also attended and won the under 11 title.
 As the over 9s had a smaller pool they finished before the under 9s and were treated to a simultaneous match with the oganiser Malolaprasath thittanimuttam Sundaramadhavan aka 'Malola'.
 Some games were closer than others
 as Malola made some deliberate bad moves to lead the games into tactical puzzle like positions.

 All the kids enjoyed themselves.
