Victor Shen, 12-year-old Candidate Master

brother at last summer's KCC chess party.

Candidate Master Victor Shen, who recently turned 12, has been making steady progress of late, so that his coach, NM Scott Massey, expects him to break into master territory some time this year. At the club last night, Scott showed us two of Victor's recent games (played in Westfield Chess Club Action Quads) where he demonstrates his ability to create a mating attack even against a strong master such as Peter Radomskyj (see diagram below). We look forward to seeing more of Victor's games in the future.
