For the second time in a row, we had over 50 people at our tournament! Today, we had 52 participants split into 13 sections!
My player of the tournament goes to Bryan Andrei, who won Section 2 in a long and interesting game against his fellow ICA student in a strategic endgame.
An honorable mention goes to Liam Shah, who won all three of his games in Section 9. In one of his games, despite being even in material during the middle game, Liam was able to create a forced checkmate.
One to watch out for is Andrew Cerami, who won all three of his games in Section 6! After only starting to play in October of last year, Andrew was able to not only amass a rating of over 700, but he was able to comfortably win today against higher rated opposition.
Congratulations to Stephen Hrop who went undefeated, winning Section 1 with a 3-0 score!
Just a reminder: No quads on April 16th! Next tournaments are on April 23:
