9-year old Hatchie Robinson, Jr. is Bahamas' newest star!


Having a parent who plays chess is almost always a big boost for a budding chess star. Bahamas has had a history of chess-playing families going all the way back to FIDE representative Warren Seymour, who's daughter represented the Bahamas in international youth events many years ago.  Another family has recognized the virtues of chess and it appears that another player will be vying for household bragging rights. Nine-year old Hatchie Robinson, Jr. is one of Bahamas top juniors and recently won a section prize in a recent tournament. Junior's father is one of Bahamas top players and with the help of the Bahamian Chess Federation (BCF), hopes to provide exposure for Junior's development.  Harold Munnings, Jr. of the BCF hopes that Junior will be able to play throughout the Caribbean as well as the U.S.
