Eastern Team Championships, 2013

IMG_0132The Yale Chess Club sent three teams to compete in the Eastern Team Championships on October 18-20, in Stamford, Connecticut this year. In a crowded 35 team field, with 20 rated higher than Yale’s strongest, every one of our teams came away with a money prize–Bulldogs A and B each nabbed $200 for placing 2nd in the U1800 class, and Bulldogs C won $250 for placing 2nd in the U1600 class. Impressive performance! And a special congratulations to Melina Sanchez, who won $100 as the tournament’s best Alternate. For the full tournament results, click here.
