Final Standings, Concord-Carlisle SCS 2017-2018, 11-18-2017

Fellow SCS Chess Players,

After a disappointing turnout at my first SCS event back in September, I’m pleased beyond measure to have rebounded so abundantly, with 25 players participating, at the Concord-Carlisle SCS. Although it was tight for the 14U Section, we eked out enough to get three separate Sections. I’m especially happy to report that this is the best attended Club SCS so far in the 2017-2018 season.

Isaac Gordon in 11U and Alexander Tran in 8U both extended their massive SCS Point leads. They may be virtually unstoppable at this point.

Winners:

14U

1st – Henry Booth
2nd – Ian Van Hulle
3rd – Lucas Kamon

11U

1st – Holden Chalfant
2nd – Sritan Devineni
3rd – Isaac Gordon

8U

1st – Alexander Tran
2nd – Rami Klemencic
3rd – Justin Sun

Our next two tournaments are in 2018: Sundays 3/25 and 6/10. And I am directing the two remaining Club SCS at Boylston CF on Sunday 1/21/2018 and at Chess Empire Kids in Wakefield on Sunday 2/25/2018.

See you all soon over the board. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Final Standings, Concord-Carlisle Scholastic March G/30 d5 – 03-12-2017

Fellow Concord-Carlisle players,

Brrr! This was not the most fun tournament to run on a bitter cold March weekend. The heater in the building broke over the cold weekend, leaving us stranded with no heat or hot water. After suffering through three rounds all bundled up (most of us), we finally gave up on our planned fourth Round.

Despite this contingency, we still had a great time. Thanks in abundance to Yuval, Daniel, and Alexander for helping to organize all these tournaments over the past few years (they will be out of the country the next academic year), and thanks to Steve Frymer for helping to direct.

Winners:

Over Age 11:

Henry Booth (1st)
Lucas Kamon (2nd)
Dylan Jiang (3rd)
Matthew Loose, Daniel Erlich-Herzog, Naor Wiesel (medals)

Age 11 & Under:

Jacob Snell (1st)
Sritan Devineni (2nd)
Tristan Pritchard (3rd)
Caden Obrien, Hari Palaniyappan, John Fullerton (medals)

This ends the tournament season for Concord-Carlisle. However, I still have two more tournaments to direct, one on 4/1/17 in Burlington (no fooling!), and one on 4/29/17 in Brockton. Check out details at masschess.org

, and please note down the dates.See you over the board in what I hope will be a warmer building next time.
