British Champs 2023

I've been trying to find and follow the progress of Devon juniors in this year's Championships, but please email me if I've missed anyone.

I spotted Luke Honey and Reece Whittington having a go in the strong 9-round Major Open, scoring 5 and 3.5 respectively.  A tough week in the office!  (For context, the winner was an International Master who scored 7/9.)

Reece and Luke then took part in the U1900 Rapidplay, which was won by Luke with 5.5/6 -- very well done! 

Pengxiao Zhu scored an unbeaten 6/7 points in the U14 to finish clear second, half a point behind the winner.  Well done indeed!  He's young enough to have another go next year.

Jack Wills took part in the U16s, scoring 2.5/6.

Former Devon Junior Freddie Sugden took part in the U1750 afternoon tournament, and is planning to run an event in Devon in the coming season.
