2nd Michael Uriely Tournament

“On 7th May this year Antoine Divet competed in the 2nd Michael Uriely Memorial Tournament at Westminster School together with other children from the Wallace Chess Elite & Talent Squad.

Antoine performed magnificently with 5/5. Antoine has worked very hard on his chess over the past year in the Elite Squad and reading books at home and now the results are showing. He is a good example of how hard work pays off. One rarely wins a tournament without some luck, and his game against fellow Elite Squad member Owen could have gone the other way when Owen got a big attack from the opening. However Antoine stayed calm and took his chances when they came. I think one of the secrets of Antoine’s success is his calm personality which enables him to stay cool under pressure.”
