More tournaments, more success

It feels as if the Young Stars program is producing fantastic result after fantastic result, and that might just be the case. We published not too long ago a piece on Sam’s and Jeffery’s performances in their recent events, as well as Awonder’s fabulous result in the Continental Championship.

Jeffery has made the headlines yet again. A fabulous result in the 45th Capablanca Memorial, held in Havana, Cuba, this month granted him the first place in the Premier section of the tournament and another 13 rating points to his name.
