6th October 2021 — Thirteen-year-old Nina was joined at the national championships by younger brother Max, having both qualified online over the summer. Max scored 2.5 out of 5 in the U12 competition and Nina scored 3.5 out of 5 in the U14s, finishing 3rd overall and taking the U14 girls’ title.

Brentwood School Chess Coach, Robin Slade, said: “Nina and Max both played very well, outperforming their rankings which is especially impressive when you consider they were both playing one year above their age.”
