Round 6 (Nov 23)

Olivier Kenta Chiku-Ratte

Our U12 boys, Olivier Kenta Chiku-Ratte and Michael Song, are world beaters! Kenta got a draw and Michael won, so they’re both at 5.0/6. Kenta is still ranked 1st in the section, with the best tie-break, and Michael is tied for 6th.

Meanwhile, in U10 Open, Yuanchen Zhang is in a massive tie for 2nd with 5.0/6 (=7th on tie-break).

Through five rounds, Montreal’s Olivier Kenta Chiku-Ratte is still leading the Canadian team, and his U-12 Open section, with 4.5/5, having given up just one draw, in round 5. His U-12 teammate Michael Song from North York is in 8th place in the same section with 4.0/5. Michael is also undefeated, with a record of 3-0-2, .

Three other Canadian players have 4.0/5: Luke Pulfer from Surrey BC in the U8 Open (9th), Yuanchen Zhang from Markham ON in the U10 Open (11th), and Richard Wang from Edmonton AB in U-14 Open (9th).

Canadian Youth Team Preparing for Brazil


Liza Orlova (U18 Girls), Myriam Roy (U16 Girls), and Sergey Noritsyn (U8 Open) are among 40 Canadian players headed to Brazil for the 2011 WYCC


2011 WYCC starts November 17

The tournament is under way! Check results.

Canada is sending a forty-player contingent (with five or six players participating in some of the age and gender categories) to the 2011 World Youth Chess Championships in Brazil.

See the complete list of Canadian team members, below.

This year’s Canadian team coaches are Nikolay Noritsyn, Andrew Peredun, and Mikhail Egorov; head of delegation is Andrew Giblon; assistant head of delegation is Gary Gladstone; and CFC youth co-ordinator is Patrick McDonald.

IM Nikolay Noritsyn

WYCC is an annual world chess championship for youth under 18, with boys’ and girls’ U8, U10, U12, U14, U16, and U18 categories. It takes place this year from November 17 to 27 in Caldas Novas, a hydrothermal resort town in Brazil. The event was last in Brazil sixteen years ago, in 1995, albeit under a different name. (The tournament was previously known as the World Children’s Cup, and still earlier, the Cadet Championships.)

The big news from last year’s WYCC was Jason Cao winning gold for Canada in U10 Open. Jason placed third at this year’s CYCC (he’s now playing in U12 Open) but he has decided not to join the Canadian WYCC team in Brazil.

Canada has several strong entrants in this year’s World Youth Championship, particularly in the U12 Open section, where Olivier Kenta Chiku-Ratte, Michael Song, and Razvan Preotu are initially ranked 8th, 12th, and 22nd.

Olivier Kenta Chiku-Ratte

The 2011 Canadian Youth Chess Championship – held in Richmond Hill this July, just before the Canadian Open – was a mandatory qualifying event for WYCC participants. Check MonRoi’s pictures from the 2011 CYCC.

Good luck to all our Canadian players in Brazil!
