Today is the closing day of the 2017 Bury St Edmunds Chess Congress at The Apex Centre in Bury. It has been a great event with 170 players of all standards - including England's No. 1 - Grand Master Matthew Sadler.
At the end of day one, Suffolk's leading juniors were:
Open Section: Alex Sheerin 1.5/3
Major (U170 grade): Adam John 1/3
Inter (U145 grade): Tom Roy 1/3
Minor (U120 grade): Rowan Kent 1.5/3
Congratulations to these players and all the other Suffolk Juniors - this is a really tough tournament to enter - how many juniors have played in the same hall as the British Number 1?
