FIDE World Schools Chess Championship – Round 6

The FIDE World Schools Championship held at the Dusit Thani Beach Resort in Pattaya, Thailand from 7-14 May 2015 has entered the decisive phase.

After six rounds of play, with the social nite and blitz championships over, three tense single round games will determine the 2015 winners and perhaps also show us new big talents in chess.

Of the leaders in girls championships, Lela Budagova (Azerbaijan) leads U-7 girls with 5.5/6, Munkhzul Davaakhuu (Mongolia) is runaway leader in U-7 girls with 6/6, Cai Boheng (China) has half point more in U-11 girls with 5.5/6, Annagozel Mekanova (Turkmenistan) and Kylen Joy Mordido in U-13 girls jointly have 5/6, Irina Barbaeva (Russia) in U-5 girls also has 5/6, and Shania Mae Mendoza (Philippines) in U-17 girls is clear leader with 5.5/6.
