Jude Takes on the World!

Fantastic news for KCC!

The remarkable Jude Shearsby has been selected to play as England's sole representative in the World U-10 Online Rapid Championships in December. Jude faces an initial 7 Round Continental Qualifier (10 mins + 3 secs) against the cream of Europe's junior chess players. There are just 3 places up for grabs in the Final 16 Knockout Tournament (15 mins + 10 secs), where the European qualifiers will be joined by another 3 from each of Africa, Asia and the Americas, plus the top four rated U-10s from the October FIDE list.

Jude is already a veteran of over the board European Age Group Championships in Latvia and Slovakia, and now joins his fellow KCC mighty atom, Billy, in participating at World level. 

Good luck Jude, from everyone at KCC. To say we are proud of you is an understatement!
