R. J. Shield Finals
To qualify for the R. J. Shield finals in Melbourne you need to accumulate 15 points over five tournaments. Last year we had 25 qualifiers, who had a great time competing at the finals, learning more skills and tactics while meeting other chess minded children. How many players will reach the magic 15 points this year?
