Junior Lightning

Prior to the adult club's lightning competition the juniors got in on the act with their own frenetic brand of 10-second chess - actually I'm being slightly unfair as there were plenty of decent quality games...

Ben H took an early lead with 2/2 and had a strong position against Maya before she recovered to win. Next it was Harry's turn to take the lead with 3/3 but then he fell to Ben C and the lead changed again! Finally only Justin and Darcey remained on 4/4 - I paired them together for the title but at the end of the evening their position was equal so a draw resulted and a joint win for both of them!

Both received book prizes, thanks to the generosity of Horsham club members. Well done to all who took part.
