Three keep perfect record
Three Barbadians have perfect records after the third round of games in the eighth CARIFTA Chess Championships in Curaçao yesterday.
Kyle Sandiford, in his first outing in the Under-20 Open category, and Under-12 girls Hannah Wilson and Savannah Corrigan maintained their winning streak in another commendable effort by Barbados at the Hilton Curaçao.
The Bajans ended the round with 11 wins, two draws and eight defeats as the competition intensified among the more than 180 participants from a record 11 countries.
Sandiford, the national Under-20 champion and last year’s CARIFTA Under-16 Open silver medallist, was poised to play Pierre Chang of Suriname in a fourth-round top-of-the-table clash in the evening session.
Wilson, last year’s CARIFTA Under-10 gold medallist and the national Under-10 female champion, and Corrigan, a CARFITA first-timer and national Under-12 female champion, were also set to face each other in another top-of-the-table encounter. (BCF)
