Last Saturday, a few of our students participated in the Nationwide Scholastic Championship II Online Chess Tournament. Matthew and Sophia participated in the K-4th section. Both players performed very well. Sophia participated in her very first-rated event and picked up her first win in the second round! Sophia now has an official rating of 464. She earned a total of 1 point in the tournament. Matthew finished in eleventh place and picked up three wins and a draw, reaching 3.5 points. Matthew had the highest finish amongst Kindergartners in the K-4th section. Matthew now has a rating of 803. Kudos to both students for earning wins and increasing the online quick rating. Our next tournament will take place on June 26th, 2021, at 10:00 am CST via lichess.org. We have also resumed in-person sessions, and they are going very well! Review and practice are the keys to improving, and we aim to build on our success. We hope to see you all at the next tournament!
