February Open, Saturday, Feb 22, 2014

Presented by Tampa Chess Centre and Yes2Chess.com

Our Yes2Chess Open on February 22 was a barnburner! Our newest student, 11-year-old Ojas Kalia, secured a share of 1st place before the final round! Ojas was upended in round 4 by the return to chess of the swashbuckling Chong Oh Kim. Chong’s Gangnam Style is the most enterprising I have seen since that Coach Mike guy! (I swear Chong has hacked our Warbook!) Not to be outdone, the resilient Lixin Zheng, who has the Swiss gambit heart of a lion, defeated Attila Sonkoly in the final round to achieve a three-way tie for 1st with Kalia & Kim. Lixin had lost in round 1 to Russell Scott, while Kim missed a winning tactic in round 2 to Sonkoly. Ojas & Lixin are like hungry dogs when it comes to learning chess. Ojas’ hard work has paid off as Ojas has gained a whopping 286 rating points since he joined Yes2Chess a month ago. AT THAT RATE ($1.75 per rating point), for $1,000, we can help him become an expert, & for another $1,000 he may become a Grandmaster! LOL.
