“It was a crazy day with unstable Internet service and change of procedures. They did not allow anyone but the players to enter the playing hall until after the rounds started. The new zero tolerance rule by FIDE is being enforced. I am being cautious and get there 15 minutes before the round start time.” From Tanuj Vasudeva’s Chess Chronicles BLOG

PLAYING STRONG – The following players have won 3 out of 4:

Winston Zeng (Under 8 Open), Samritha Palakollu (Under 8 Girls), Jarod Pamatmat (Under 12 Open), WCM Sarah Chiang (Under 12 Girls), David Adelberg (Under 14 Open), Anna Matlin (Under 14 Girls), Alena Kats (Under 14 Girls) and WFM Abby Marshall (Under 18 Girls).

We wish our players the best!  Keep up the good work!
