The Hong Kong Under-14 Team landed in the middle of the table, scoring 50% in their match points, in the inaugural Asian Under-14 Nationals Cup.

Iran won gold, China A Silver and Malaysia Bronze.

All the Hong Kong team members fought hard, learnt much from playing against many stronger players, and built up great team spirit in the process.

Hong Kong Chess Federation Limited, as the only official chess organisation body in Hong Kong, will provide opportunities for young players, who have proven themselves in HKCFL tournaments, to represent Hong Kong in FIDE-official events.

This experience will hopefully encourage these youngsters to compete in more high quality international tournaments, and aspiring them fight for Hong Kong in events such as the Chess Olympiad.

Hong Kong Under-14 Team Scored First Team Victory


The Hong Kong Under-14 Team scored their first playing victory in Round 4 of the Asian Nationals Cup Under-14 Team Tournament, that is underway in Jiaxing, China. They beat Maldives A 4-0.

Despite tough competition, the team spirit is high, with constructive and fun analysing sessions after each round.

This afternoon, the team will be competing at the Blitz Team Tournament.

The event will last until 12-Nov-16.

The inaugural Asian Nationals Cup Under-14 Team Tournament is currently underway in Jiaxing, China. It will be a 9-Round event, lasting until 12-Nov-16.

Hong Kong is one of the 15 teams competing in this FIDE tournament. Our team consists of five of our most promising juniors: James Kwong Wing-Ki, Oliver Yau, Gerald Xu Jiarong, Mike Tsoi and Ernest Cheung. KK Chan, the HKCFL Vice-President, is the Team Captain.
In the 1st round, despite being more than 400 rating points lower than the opposing Malaysian team, James obtained a draw on Board 1, against FM Wong Yinn Long, who is nearly 600 rating points higher.
Hong Kong will be facing Mongolia in Round 2.
Being the official body of chess organisation in Hong Kong, HKCFL is able to give opportunities for our most promising young players to compete in FIDE events and to develop their skills. The competition is stiff, but it is excellent for the young players to open their eyes and experience the level of chess at an international level. Hopefully this will aspire them to work hard at their chess and take to a new level.
