The Polish Chess Championships are taking place in Warsaw from March 25 to April 2, with 15-year-old grand master Jan-Krzysztof Duda one of the favourites.

Jan-Krzysztof Duda from Krakow, southern Poland, achieved his GM title in 2013 at the age of 15 years and 21 days, becoming the second youngest grandmaster in the world after China's Wei Yi and is being tipped as a potential challenger for the world title in the future.

Duda has got off to a great start at the championships, winning two and drawing the third of his marches so far.

Also taking part in the men's competition is Radoslaw Wojtaszek, who was a second to Viswanathan Anand when he lost his world championship crown to Magnus Carlsen last November.

The winners of the men's and women's titles will represent Poland at this year's Chess Olympiad in Norway. (pg)
