Chess World Junior & Girls U-20 titles won by Andreikin and Muzychuk

The quaint Chotowa village.

Hi Everybody,

Have you heard of Chotowa, Czarna in Poland? If you are looking for lush pine-oak forests and a nice cool lagoon then that's the place to go. And, if you went to Chotowa this August from 2-17 then possibly you went there for the World Junior and Girls U-20 Chess Championship!

The Championship has been won by Dmitry Andreikin of Russia and Anna Muzychuk of Slovenia. You can find some great photos and details at the official website of the championship.

There was a tie for the first place in the boys' section between GMs Dmitry and Sanan Sjugirov. Both notched up 10.0/13 points. But Dmitry won on tiebreak points.

In the Girls' section top seed Anna Muzychuk led throughout the tournament and had only one tough call which was during the penultimate round. But she survived that and managed a clear first ahead of Olga Girya and Rout Padmini.
