Week 5 Report – Teaneck

2019 Week 5 Teaneck

Our hottest days of summer 2019 are here. In addition to 100-degree weather, we got a 100% fully packed camp. The majority of our campers are returning children, but we are happy to welcome our new campers. Congratulations to JADEN PARMAR and ACHYUT MANOJ, who were the Best Students in their chess groups, and GLYNNTON BUCKLEY, who teamed up with SONYA GOYAL to win the rated division of Blitz-Bughouse!

 

Impressive results for newcomers!

 

In noteworthy fashion, ACHYUT MANOJ continued his triumph and managed to get two more awards: the Problem Solving Prize and, with ANAHIT MELKUMOV, he won the unrated division in Blitz-Bughouse!

 

This week we concentrated on strategies and practiced the Scandinavian Defense. JACOB POLLARD was named as the best Scandinavian Simul Performer and RAYMOND WANG got the overall Simul Survival Award!
