We had a great time at the tournament! It was such a beautiful day. We had a lot of great chess (and, yes, a lot of not-so-great chess). I'm always impressed by how quiet and intense the kids get. I was also delighted to see all the kids playing handball together between rounds. :)

Thank you to all the players, parents, and volunteers. Special thanks to Rick Mayfield, principal at Pacheco for being a great host!  

We had decisive results in the Rated section seeing Lyric Roberts in the lead with 5.0 points followed by Joey Ruddell with 4.0 points. It was great to see a few newcomers - thanks to all the players who took a risk to play in the rated section. Also thank you for knowing how to checkmate with a queen and king vs. king!

We had a number of last-round upsets in the non-rated section that changed results significantly. We had a tie for 1st place between Max Waldorf and Austin Koonvirarak. We had a 5-way tie for 2nd place! Though tie-breakers somehow allowed us to assign trophies the scores definitely show how close it was.

Keep an eye out on the site for information about the next tournament!
