District Chess Championship U8

Julian Petzke (2nd from left) among the runner ups (2nd places) in the District Chess Championship 2016

Julian, my younger son, just played a good tounament and with 6 out of 7 points he finished 2nd. Only 1 buchholtz point was the distance to the 1st place. Anyway. Well done!

Time control was 75 minutes for 40 moves and 15 minutes for the rest of the game. This is an eternity for such young kids. And probably halve the games were already finished after 30 minutes. Julian was among the ones that took their time which was probably a good part of his success.

Now he is qualified for the U8 Chess championship of Saxony.
