45 chessplayers gathered at Radnor Elementary School to battle it out in the August Burn chess tournament, the final event of the summer.
For the second straight tournament, Joshua Hagerty of Simmons Elementary won the K-3 section with an undefeated 4-0 score.Â Perhaps Josh will be moving up to the K-8 section in later tournaments, as he seems to need more of a challenge! In the K-8, Tommy Guo from Penn Wynne Elementary went 4-0 to win his first tournament after several top-5 finishes.Â Steven Chen of Ithan Elementary went 3.5-.5 to win second place, gaining over 200 rating points in the process. Once again, the Open section was dominated by IM Bryan Smith.
