Namibia Chess: Junior Championships 2013 Held

Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) 2013

Hi everyone,
The 2013 National Junior Closed Chess Championships provided excitement and a thrilling battle of the minds as 53 youngsters from all over the country went head-to-head at Academia Secondary School in the capital over the weekend. A National Champion was crowned for each age group during the three-day long tournament. Pre-tournament favourite Julian Isaaks (photo) lived up to his billing by winning the Open U20 section followed by William Kamberipa in second place and Willem Louw in third.

Uatjiri Hewicke was victorious in the Under 8 section, ending half a point ahead the promising Isabelle Els from Pro-ed Academy, while Aldo Horn won the U10 section with an unbeaten score of 7/7.

Windhoek Afrikaanse Privaatskool's Iwann du Toit topped the U12 section, as Mubasen /Hochobeb clinched the U14 title.

The U16 contest saw former Namibian Women's Chess Champion Nicola Tjaronda dominate her rivals and score an amazing 7/7 to claim the title in that category.

Immanuel Gariseb continued his run of always taking home a prize at local chess competitions when he won the U18 section.
