Gibraltar junior tournament : August 2013

June 2, 2013

I was lucky enough to be able to visit Gibraltar for work to coincide with a couple of days of their Chess Festival organised by Brian Callaghan OBE and directed by GM Stuart Conquest. I stayed at Brian's Caleta Hotel where the tournament is played, and had a few fabulous days, work in the morning, chess in the evening.

Alas, I wasn't able to go in 2013, but, who knows, maybe I shall in 2014 or beyond.

Meanwhile, Stuart tells me that he is running a junior tournament. The dates are August 15-20. If you know of any young players or families who might be interested, please let them know! The link to the Junior website (with full information) is here:


The first day that I was in Gibraltar, the weather was gorgeous, and the main high street a pleasure to stroll down. Several of the shops had chess displays. One, displayed this mate in 3 puzzle which stumped me for a good while.
