Spanish Chess Championship—Day 1

The 2013 Spanish Chess Championship kicked off today just down the road in Salobreña. Of the 140 participants, our son started the event ranked 2nd in the sub-10 category. At the end of the day, he had won his first two games and took over the 1st place position in the rankings. Although they don’t let parents into the room where the kids are playing, the first 30 tables are electronic and broadcast their games live on the internet. The problem is that viewing them requires Java, which is incompatible with most tablets like the iPads.
