                Photos at the 2018 Canadian Junior CC. Beautiful rolling trophy for the winner in the Invitational section.

                Today is already day 3. How time flies....

                We have close to 150 players participating in this year championship. We aim to improve and make next year tournament a bigger and better one if we win the bid. We had about 100 players in 2017.

                Give us feedback on how we perform at info@elevatemychess.com. We would love to hear from you on how we can improve and make it worthwhile for you to play in our tournaments.

                With IA Danny Goldenberg and assistant Mikhail Egorov in our team, we are in safe hands as far as on the operation side.

                Cheers for Chess in Canada

                  Time flies and we are the 2nd last day of the tournament. Tomorrow is the last day of the tournament.

                  I spent many hours to talk to the parents about their feedback. Many excellent feedback and we definitely will take them into account into our future tournament.

                  Thanks to all who spent the time talking to me. We feel very encouraged and appreciate your feedback very much/

                  Why do we do that ? Simply because we care about your feedback and want to make and improve our tournament to reach another higher level.

                  Good luck to everyone in their last two rounds tomorrow.

                        A summary of the tournament coming with the full results in the next 1-2 days.

                        FM Shawn Rodrigue-Lemiuex from Quebec became 2018 Canadian Junior Champion after beating FM Mark Plotkin over 4 playoff games. Both achieved 7/9 in the round robin. Sherry Tan from BC won the Top Girls in the Invitational section thereby become the official player for Canada to the WJCC next month.

                        All the best to both of the official player to WJCC in Turkey next month

                        Congratulations to all the winners

                        The play off games ( U1800 and Invitational ) to decide the winner was broadcast live. There were more than 1700 views on our live games during the tournament.
