I have already mentioned the fantastic London Chess Festival, held last weekend in glorious sunshine. One of the highlights was a Blitz challenge match between chess prodigies 12 year old Shreyas Royal, playing in Trafalgar Square and 10 year old Tani Adewumi playing from his home in New York

Both players were fantastic, Shreyas undoubtedly had more pressure, with a noisy crowd urging him on, in fact he declined a draw by repetition to give the thousands watching a more exciting game

Here is our Game of the Week

 White:  Royal, Shreyas      Black:  Adewumi, Tani
