Fellow BCF Scholastic players,Something truly extraordinary happened on Sunday at the BCF August Scholastics. In the 8 & Under Section, because a brother and sister tied with 4-0 scores, we had a SEVEN-WAY tie for 3rd Place! That was a boatload of medals to give out.

Thanks to the 20 players who came and increased the attendance from last month. We had quite a few new players appear, and two of them, Nathan and Alfred, took 2nd and 3rd Places in the 14 & Under Section behind the up-and-coming Champion Kaustubh Kislay. In the 8 & Under, new player Harry Tan was one among the big group of 3rd Place medalists.

14 & Under:
1st: Kaustubh Kislay
2nd: Nathan Klempf
3rd: Alfred Greisen
8 & Under:
1st-2nd (tied with 4-0 scores): Santhosh Ayyappan, Anushka Ayyappan
3rd (tied): Kartheban Yoganandam, Theerthan Yoganandam, Fuzail Basheeryasmin, Eilam Kuo. Jaswant Ambati, Harry Tan, Johanna Greisen

We hope to see many of you at the New England Open.
See you over the board back at the BCF Scholastics on September 22.
