22nd West London Junior Championship

14.07.2007

This was the last event for the summer term and as the turn up surprisingly was quite good children were divided in two groups: U6 and U8 and above.

U8 and above:

Rupert Glover (4/5) was in the lead up to the end and even his last round loss against Joshua Crook, who came second, did not make any difference, as he won the tournament by progressive score. Ben Murphy and Louis Norris gained 3.5 points. Ben won the bronze medal by decisive progressive score. Ellie Baldwin was the best girl.

U6: Arian Amiri scored a brilliant 5/5 and thus won the gold medal. Vivek Thakrar came second with 4/5 and Declan Thompson 3rd with 3.5 points. The only girl, Sabrina Anwer, came 4th with 3 points! Well done all!

21st WLJCC Championship

This was the last tournament for the spring term and unexpectedly 17 children turned up, of whom only 8 had signed up in advance, which made the organisation for the tournament more difficult.

Guy Cranmer managed to win his first 4 games by late "Scholar's Mate", but his last round against William Winterbotham was not so lucky. William knew how Guy has won his previous games and paid attention to Guy's opening trick, and just after the opening moves William checkmated his opponent. Children showed a good fighting spirit and some of them learnt that age difference doesn't count but the knowledge. Well done all!

20th WLJCC Championship

Due to a half-term break many children were away, however, 5 boys turned up and played a round-robin tournament.

Guy Cranmer was a first time winner and Ralph Hankins came second after his third attempt. Adam Lomas had a winning position against Guy and could have claimed draw but decided to play on for a win and eventually lost on time.

In the third round Luke Barry missed a checkmated in one move against Guy, who proved to have strong nerves and determination.

17th WLJCC Championship 2006

For the first time Ben Murphy shared 1st place with Elis Vandyck. Although Elis lost his last game (against Ben), he was ahead by progressive score, so by thus Elis won the tournament but decided to give the gold medal to Ben. A hard but a very kind decision indeed! Rupert Glover won his first bronze medal, note that Rupert has been a regular member of the club for a less than a year.

It was nice to see new faces in the tournament. About 8 children had their first appearance at WLJCC event.
