Junior Master™

Chess Power Junior Master™ Title

Junior Master™ is a title awarded by Chess Power to players under the age of 18 who win a major national Chess Power event such as the Champions Trophy or Chess Power National Finals or achieve over 1850 rating points. The Junior Master™ title is difficult to achieve and quite prestigous. When a player achieves the Junior Master™ Title, they are awarded with a framed certificate recognising the title in a special ceremony.

From then on, the initials JM appears before their name in all Chess Power events and also online. The new Junior Master™ is also invited to special events such as simultaneous exhibitions, exclusive strong tournaments and also enters the Chess Power Hall of Fame™.
