Boylston Chess: Legends of Chess - Leonid Stein - Report

 Legends of Chess:  Leonid Stein

Fellow BCF Players,

Eastern MA had an action-packed weekend on the day we ran LOC Stein, but we still came away with 26 players and had just barely enough to run the two advertised Sections.

We still had a massive tie in the small Open Section. My thanks to Rayhan Riaz for playing an excellent side game with me - it is really hard to play kids in case you were unaware - and to Jiayun Liu for volunteering to play a side game with Dennis Kalloor.

Special recognition should be given to Sophia Rosenholtz who won the U1900 Section and came very close to passing her father Jeremy in rating. That day is coming.

1st: Brian Salomon
2nd (tied): Karthik Padmanabhan, Andrew The, Matthew Meredith, Timothy Bromley

1st: Sophia Rosenholtz
2nd (tied): Sritan Devineni, Leonard Sweeney-Barrett

Come on back next Saturday 12/15 for the Tornado!
See you over the (windswept) board.
