Thanks Andrew, that's great for the juniors attending the EU Youth event. Calum was one of the coaches when we were at the Junior World Championships in Slovenia and he was a fabulous coach for the juniors there Smile

Yes, as Linda says, Calum is brilliant at connecting with rapidly improving young Scottish juniors as are all of the online CS coaching team.

Totally agree. But, of course, this is in addition to the many chess club members out there who coach and support juniors, at all levels, in chess clubs (and schools) all over Scotland. :ymapplause:

Kai is having a great tournament. Lying 0.5 off the lead. He has a difficult one today though playing a 1837 who is the other person on the same points as Kai.

Good luck to all. Let's finish off the last couple of games in style!
