Fide master, Cailin Chetty once again proved his talent when he participated at the South African Junior Closed Chess Championships in Bloemfontein, recently. The Montford lad, who always makes the right moves in the game of chess, has done his family proud and is certainly on the path to success.
The tournament was an 11 round one with Cailin winning seven games and drawing four games. This gave him a score of 9 out of 11, making it quite the achievement. The energetic Star College pupil has won gold and has also become the 2016 under 14 chess champion in South Africa.
Cailin qualifies to participate at the Commonwealth Games Championship in Sri Lanka, African Youth Chess Championship in PE and the World Youth Chess Championship in Russia. He is currently also holding the position of African Schools Chess Champion. His goal is to someday be a grandmaster.
