Watch out - there's an 8-year old girl about!

Regulars will recall, a few days ago, reading about Anita Somton's call-up to an England team.   Still only 8 years old, she now plays league chess for the Bury St Edmunds 'E' team in the Bury Area League (Division 3).

Yesterday she faced another girl, 13-year old Alba Saenz de Villaverde, who plays for the Bury 'F' team.   Both Anita (59) and Alba (76) received their first long-play grades from the ECF in January.

In the game that follows, Alba certainly made a few errors.   But as you'll see, Anita capitalised on these mistakes and swamped Alba with a deluge of central pawns.   The finish is particularly impressive.   Be afraid.  Be very afraid!
