Fellow BCF Scholastic players,

We continue to have excellent success with our Scholastic tournaments. Not only did we get 22 players, but we welcomed a new player, Pratik Venkatesan, to our midst. There were plenty enough players to fill both 14 & Under and 8 & Under groups.

Ethan Chan, the highest rated 14 & Under player, made it handily to 1st place with a 3.5 score. The triumph in the 8 & Under Section went once again to the 4-0 winner Shouri Mosaliganti. We expect he'll be breaking into the ranks of the A & B Scholastic players in due time.

Next month is a special event, the BCF Spiegel Cup Qualifier combined with our regular October Scholastic. There will be five rated Sections altogether.

See you next month over the board.
