Chess success!

Chess successes for Kishore.


Kishore represented Tower Road Academy in the Lincolnshire Junior Chess Team called the 'Yellow Bellied Knights'. which is in Division 11 of the Junior Four Nations League (J4NCL) and they came first. Kishore gave the best performance of the team with a 4.5 points out of 5.


The event took place at Hinckley Island Hotel. All the other teams are from big clubs (some have over 150 junior members!) and many have grandmaster coaching sessions every week. The Yellow Bellied Knights are a group of 4 children (aged 14, 13, 10 and 8) who have become friends at tournaments that they have played in around Lincolnshire and so they thought they'd enter as a team. NO club backing and NO professional coaching!! 


In their first season they won the Division 11 with 4 wins and one draw out of 5 rounds.


Since this tournament win they have gone on to play again and again the result was a win.


The team will now move up to Division 1 . Excellent! Well done Kishore and your team. Keep going!
