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!  

A ten player all-play-all chess tournament featuring seven young International Masters and three Grandmasters. The money will be used to fund the venue, the accommodation costs of the players and appearance fees for the Grandmasters.

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.
