Honorable mentions to our 2 young players, Ashwath Kaushik who played in the U8, and Sreekarthika Velmurugan in GU10 for dominating in all 3 time controls and emerging as champions!

It was a great tournament experience for all, with many learning points for the players – and we can only get better and stronger in more upcoming events. Shoutout to GM Thomas Luther who lent coaching support and imparted invaluable knowledge to the players throughout the tournament. Massive thank you to the parents as well, for enabling our young warriors to play in the tournament, and we hope they continue to progress in their chess journey.
