ACT Junior Championship

 The 2023 ACT Junior Championship finished with a win by Dev Raichura, who scored an impressive 7/8. He only lost to last years champion Phong Huynh, but won all his other games. Olamide Fasakin was 2nd, with Masaki Horikwa winning the third place trophy on countback.

Although a number of older juniors skipped the event, it was still an impressive win for Raichura. The other significant thing about his win, is at the age of 8 years old, I am almost certain he would be the youngest winner of the ACT Junior Championship. He has also scored a number of wins over strong Canberra players in club events, so I expect his rating to jump up in the near future.
