We certainly need some positive and uplifting news in the world of chess.

Rheyansh (FIDE 1698) is flying the flag for Australia and is coming =1st with 5/5 in the U8 Open section of this 11 round tournament, part of the World Cadets.

His starting rank was 4/153 players and next round he is due to play a slightly higher rated player from Russia, Roman Shogdzhiev. This is like some real-life ‘Searching for Bobby Fischer’ drama! 

Games begin at a convenient 9:15pm for Australian viewers in the eastern states:…-2022-u8/5/1/1
