The London Young Masters International Chess Tournament
by Adam Raoof
England has a bunch of young talented chess masters who need this event to become Grandmasters, the next Magnus Carlsen!
The main aim is to give our home nation players (see below for the list of invitees) the chance to qualify as Grandmasters themselves by aiming for a final score of 6.5 or 7/9. We don’t have enough tournament opportunities like this for our young masters, and I hope that this event will be the first in a series of similar tournaments.
