France is the early leader

It is the experienced French team who lead after four rounds of the Junior Championship. They are undefeated and have a tremendous IMP ratio of 4.313. They are pursued by several of the other fancied teams, Israel, Norway, the holders Italy, and the Netherlands. Our Turkish hosts are performing well, and are tied with Denmark in sixth place.

The three debutants in the Championship, England, Scotland and Wales, are finding it a testing experience, as they all languish at the wrong end of the table.
