Playing in the European Youth Championships in Montenegro this week, 9-year old Anita Somton was a pawn ahead in her first game, and a knight and a pawn ahead in her second game. But she lost both games because she tried to exchange queens.
This was the first game:
After five rounds, Anita is on two points. Manningtree's Adam C Taylor, playing in the Under 16 Open, is on 1½ points.
Tomorrow is a rest day; the final four rounds commence on Saturday, finishing on Tuesday.
