Magnus Carlsen Educational Chess Set, new product direct from the manufacturer. In association with Magnus Carlsen & Play Magnus.
Congratulation to William Stoppani who won the u-11 group of the Norwich Delancey Schools Mega Final held in Norwich on the 2nd May.
He won his first five games, which meant that he was the only player to go into the sixth and final round with more than four points – so he had effectively won his age group before the sixth round games took place!
Although William lost the final game and commented – “I was not careful enough when sacrificing my queen!” – the game was exciting with just 1 minute left on the clock.
William now heads to the Giga Final in Manchester. Two years ago, he arrived in the sixth round of the Manchester Giga Final with 4.5 points and had he won that game then he would have been crowned champion. Best of luck for this year William!
