Scottish Star Junior

An excellent performance by 8-year-old Christopher MacDonald of Stirling and Perth Chess Clubs in the British U-8. Chris' only loss was against the tournament winner (a big name in junior chess!) who leading BCF junior organiser Leonard Barden mentions is second only to Luke McShane in the all time UK rating for age rankings. LB reports that the winner was very impressed with Chris's resistance. LB reckons Chris should now be aimed at higher level events ie adult Minor tournaments progressing eventually to Majors rather than junior events. (Chris's rating should really be 91 BCF (including junior addition) since the organisers don't seem to be using the latest SCA grades).
