SDCC JULY SCHOLASTIC TOURNAMENT
Today’s July Scholastic went very smooth with 54 participants. We decided to have a smaller scale event this time and limited registration to 50-54 entries. The tournament has been rated: http://www.uschess.org/msa/XtblMain.php?202307306442.0.
The OPEN section was the smallest with only 10 participants including brand new to in-person chess, Michael Huang. Michael previously played online USCF rated events only. The top 3 finishers were: Fausto Borquez, Nathan Trieu, and Hiro Uchiyama (won on tie breaks, as he had the same score as Saanvi Sheoran and Michael Huang).
