ORLANDO CHESS HOUSE
October 3, 2018
We combined some chess ideas (Lars) with some creative ideas (Jen), and here is the result: The one-of-a-kind 2019 wall calendar.
Every month features a famous chess tactic from the classics. A good reminder to us chess players and coaches that studying the classics is The Shortcut. To understanding chess.
Andrew Xing got his long-expected breakthrough at Autumn Open in Orlando, winning the U1700 section with almost perfect score.
Andrew started with 4/4 wins, defeating his opponents with great confidence. In the last round he faced his sister Amy Xing who also had an amazing tournament and finished on a clear 2nd place. Congratulations guys!
Bach played his best tournament so far, reaching a decent 2350 performance at Florida State Championship!
Playing in the top section, Bach started out by defeating a 2249 opponent, and then continued the solid play throughout the tournament. The crown of Bach's performance was his draw against GM Finegold (2567) in the final round.
Ten year old Bach is no upstart in chess. He is already a serious player, and he showed some vast potential already in July, winning the U2100 Southern Open.
Congratulations Bach! Final standings ...
