I just want to make the genral chess community aware that two Ranges chess club members - Ethan Lim and Denise Lim - are currently competing in this tournament in the U8 and U10 age group divisions respectively. The game time is 2 hours and it is a 9 round event. They are the only Aussies there!

It is held in Vietnam, with players from AUS, BRU, INA, IND, IRI, MAS, PHI, RUS, SIN, VIE competing.

Ethan is scoring 3.5/7 and Denise is 3/7, both currently mid-pack out of a field of 28. We are tremendously proud of the pair!

After the final 9th round of the ASEAN All-Age Tournament
in Hue,Vietnam, Ethan came 15th out of 28 with a score of
4.5 out of 9 and Denise came 26th out of 29 with a score of
3 out of 9. This is an great performance against the best in
their age groups among South East Asian nations!:clap:

They and their mum are back now. One funny incident: At breakfast, an AUSTRALIA label was on their table, so they sat down at that table. Someone else, on looking at them (they are Australian chinese), decided to move the label to another table, presumably waiting for the 'real' Aussies to turn up. So Denise went and got the label and returned it to its correct spot!

Beng held in Vietnam, I assume there were many locals there as well.:)
