April 2021 EOM: Breaking records!
Years ago our End of the Month Tournament was a small event for our students with some occasional external student. We have seen the event grow so much than we have separated the tournament in 2 shifts, balancing the level in each played game, and this month we reached a record of 48 students! Lot of regulars and lot of first-timers, lot of great games!
Full results of the day available in chess-results:
Group A: 4 players arrived tied to the last round and facing each other. The games Pak Yu-Kainos and Lachlan-Sichen would decide the winner, as all them were the only Group A players with 3 points in the first 4 rounds. Kainos Wong and Sichen Song won their games, and finish first and second due to tie-break. Lachlan Leung got the third place even after losing that decisive game.

Group B: Jasper Leung was the only player with 3.5 points, after beating the Group A siblings Tiia and Sacha in the last 2 rounds. Rosemarie Wang and Randy Wang repeated their second and third place from last month, both of them with 3 points.

Group C: Last month Sastha and Adhavan drew their games and won all their remaining games. This month, Adhavan beat Sastha, but having an early loss made a new tie on the top place unaviodable. Again Sastha got a better tie-break and won the event for second time in a row. Adhavan also repeated a second place and Ayden finished third, also with 4 points. Aldrik and Brandon with 3.5 each, completed the top-5 winners, just a few tie-break points ahead of Jonathan and Aadit.
