With the ACT COVID lockdown meaning that the ACT Under 14/Under 16 Championships could not be held, the ACT Junior Chess League decided to try running this event in a free online format on Lichess using FIDE (international) online tournament regulations, which required players to appear on Zoom during their games. Being online, the event was not officially rated.

Congratulations to Joshua Liang who is our ACT Under 16 Champion with a perfect score (7/7) and to Minchen Yang, who is our ACT Under 14 Champion. Congratulations also to all of our winners and placegetters. Once current restrictions have eased, we will retrieve the tournament trophies from their current place of residence and post them to recipients.

1st & Under 16 Champion - Joshua Liang 7/7 
2nd - Masaki Horikawa 5/7
3rd - Richard Ji 5/7

Under 14 Champion - Minchen Yang 5.5/7
Best Girl - Shivani Sundar 3.5/7

Rating Group A - Kevin Wong 5/7
Rating Group B - Reyansh Ahuja 4.5/7
Best Unrated - Pranav Kiran 4/7

Full Standings can be found at the end of this email.

Thanks to the thirty-two players who took part in this event. 

My particular thanks to Chief Arbiter Shaun Press who brought to the event considerable experience derived from his involvement with international online tournaments. Thanks also to my daughter Saffron who gave up her weekend to be an arbiter.

This event proved to be one of most challenging I have organised to date. Whilst some coped well with playing under online tournament conditions and rules, others struggled to meet the required playing conditionsAlthough we probably wouldn't organise another ACT junior title tournament in this format, we will run a few friendly (non-Zoom) weekend events for juniors on the ACT Junior Chess League Lichess group (https://lichess.org/team/act-junior-chess-league). To join this group, you need to sign up for a free Lichess account and also demonstrate that you are an ACT junior chess player when applying to join the group (you can include a message when applying to join the group), otherwise your request will be declined.

Thanks,

Kate
