Caissa Has New Hong Kong Champion Blitz Chess Under 8 Years Old

May 26th, 2012

On what started as a rainy Saturday 26 May 2012, the Hong Kong Chess Federation organized its first youth Blitz tournament in three age groups: under 18, under 11 and under 8 years old.

In the category under 8 Caissa’s Miguel Angel Garceran Wang played an excellent tournament and pushed the competition, including top seed like Marco King Buet Ching, Peter Daiyang Zhao and Ben Jabal, off the board after 6 rounds and 6 wins. Perhaps the knowledge he was already number 1 and champion no matter the result of the last round took away the necessary adrenaline to beat his last opponent as well – but with 6 out of 7 Miguel Angel proved to be a special talent!

The final ranking after 7 rounds.
