Euan McDougall competed at the NZ Chess Congress for two weeks in mid-January. This is the longest running annual chess event (and sporting competition) in the world.
Euan took the Under 20 champion in the NZ Junior Chess Championship, losing just one game. Games lasted 3-5 hours or longer, and Euan competed against 19 other players. He is keen to return in 2021 and hopes to do better in the Open and Blitz events against all ages.
