Congrats to BCC's newest master-- Carey Theil

Carey's USCF rating history-- he hits 2205!

The Boylston Chess Club has spawned another USCF Master -- Carey Theil. Carey climbed to 2205 with the help of a strong Boylston Club Championship and a 3-0 showing at our December edition of the Thursday Night Swiss. Impressively, his rating didn't show the dramatic upswing from ~2000 until the beginning of 2007, when the steady climb to master started for Carey. He and Greg Kaden, who accomplished the same feat earlier this year (hitting 2200 smack on the nose!), show that adult experts can still make the journey to master. Congratulations, Carey!
