Anita qualifies for the Terafinal!

9-year old Anita Somton from Bury St Edmunds is officially the best girl for her age in the northern half of the UK.   (The North/South line runs from the Bristol Channel to Harwich!)

At the Delancey UK Chess Challenge Northern Gigafinal in Manchester today, Anita won her first five games and only needed to draw her sixth and final game to win her Under 9 Girls section.

So for the second year in a row, Anita proceeds to the Terafinal, to be held in Loughborough on 17/18 August.

Also playing at the Gigafinal were Alan John (Under 10 Boys) who scored 3½ points and Luc Wallace (Under 7 Boys) on 3 points.
