Manchester Junior Chess Online 4NCL and Junior 4NCL October - December 2020.

Manchester Junior Chess

4NCL and Junior 4NCL

October – December 2020

 

 Manchester entered a number of teams in the 4NCL and Junior 4NCL

including our own Manticores and club teams from Bolton & Worsley and

Urmston.

 Manchester Junior Chess entered five teams (nearly thirty children) in the

Junior 4NCL and three teams in the 4NCL (seventeen children).

 Children were drawn from a range of MCF clubs including:

 

1. Heywood

2. Bolton

3. Worsley

4. Three C’s

 In the 4NCL our final positions were:

 

Manchester Junior A team 3 rd in Division 4

Manchester Junior B team 8 th in Division 4

Manchester Junior C team 8 th in Division 5

 

There were six divisions. While the B and C Teams found life challenging (they

usually had an average 400 grading point difference) everyone scored and I saw no

games in which we looked as if we had stumbled into the wrong room.

 In the J4NCL our final positions were:

 

Manchester Junior A 2 nd in Division 1

Manchester Junior B 1 st in Division 3 In the finals.

Manchester Junior C 2 nd in Division 3

Manchester Junior D 49 th in Division 4

Manchester Junior E 55 th in Division 4

 

J4NCL played 10 plus 15; 4NCL played 45 plus 10.

Big Congratulations to all the children and thanks to their parents.

NEXT SEASON STARTS IN JANUARY AND I THINK WE COULD ADD ANOTHER

TEAM IN EACH TOURNAMENT. For the J4NCL, children with grades around

100 to 140 would find it an interesting challenge. For the 4NCL a similar range,

but children who want to play Standard rather than Rapidplay. I am particularly

interested in children with grades over 160 and we could compete in a higher

division.

Finally I attach a game  http://view.chessbase.com/cbreader/2020/11/20/Game633916812.html  between Freddie W. against Petra Fink Nunn (2042). Freddie

lost (probably his opponent had stronger seconds) but for an eleven year old facing a

very challenging match he answered most of the problems set for him from move 2
