Our own home grown Caissa players Miguel Angel and Mei Jing will represent Hong Kong at the World Youth Chess Championship 2013 (17-29 December) in the Under 8 category.
Unfortunately there are no other players representing Hong Kong in the other age categories and it is therefore up to Miguel Angel and Mei Jing to leave a positive impression of chess in Hong Kong.
Form of the day, mental mindset, physical status and some luck are important influencing factors but if all come together well, some points will surely be scored.
Miguel Angel, Hong Kong National Blitz Champion U8 2012, Open Dutch Youth Champion U8 2013, ESF Schools Champion Lower Primary (2012, 2013) and for several years a top 5 finalist in his age group in the Hong Kong National Championships will benefit from the fact he is one of the older players in Under 8.
Mei Jing, number 5 in the World Youth School Championship U7 girls, ESF Schools Lower Primary 2nd place (2013) and best girl in her age group several years in a row in the Hong Kong National Championships is in good form but will have to overcome she is likely among the youngest in the U8 category.
We will not be aiming too high, have fun, but definitely do our best.
