The last match was very enjoyable, quite close, and was accompanied by some coaching as Agnieszka and I reviewed games on Zoom as they finished.
I have now agreed a further date for Manchester Juniors vs Edmonton Juniors
When: Sunday 14th June 2020
5.00p.m. for 6.00p.m. start
Boards: Twenty but we have the organisation to accommodate most children who are interested.
Registration: Become a chess.com user; join the Manchester Junior Chess team on chess.com; advise me that you would like to play.
Time schedules: Ten minutes plus five seconds
Strength: chess.com will match opponents in board order. Edmonton had children in the range 600 up to 1700 using chess.com ratings (they will only use these so you need to play some games to get your grade up).
I am also agreeing details for a match Manchester Junior Chess against St Petersburg Junior Chess through our contacts from last year. I hope this will be in late June, more news to follow, and a match vs a School in Rybnik, Poland.
