Sona Irish Youth Super Cup 2018

The competition is sponsored by Sona Vitamin, Armenian Chess Club and Irish Chess Union .

20 Oct 2018, Opening ceremony and first day.

Sona Irish Youth Super Cup is underway in Dublin today!

Organisers have thought of everything to make a perfect tournament. Comfortable venue in Talbot hotel was set up with digital boards and clocks for all players in all categories, these went online in round 2 and you can follow them on here.

Before games, our sponsors Sona Vitamin organised video interviews with players, which will be up online shortly. We have also got newly qualified arbiter Neal Kirby to join Ivan Baburin in running the tournament. It is very good to see this as it would ensure better supervision of youth tournaments and make it comfortable to young players (with parents out of the way 😊). Each player got a small gift bag from Aylien in appreciation of taking part in this event.

There were few games postponed in round one and two, which will be played later. In U12, unfortunately Con Kirby could not play, and his place was taken by Carl Morrison. After round two there were few surprises, and overall the quality of the games was very high, and it is too early to call it results.

We will continue to give you update throughout the tournament - stay tune!
