2008 Aussie Junior Chess Championships

Also kicking off today is the 2008 Australian Junior Chess Championships in the Cranbrook School in Sydney. I've just had a quick look at the list of entries and I'm afraid I'm not too familiar with most of those names. I see Wallis, Ikeda, Schon and that's about it. Some other big names I expected to see aren't there. Still, it could be a tough fight.

One name I spotted, though, is Nikita Ayvazyan. The kid was our special guest yesterday at the "Hyde Park Chess Club" in Sydney. Poor Nikita scared most of our members. No one likes to be embarassed by a kid, especially those sporting a Russian accent! But I was game: won 1, drawn one.

Good luck to all players.
