With only four players, the high school team won the K12 Open. It was extremely competitive. DSA won 1st place on tiebreaks, making them Super Championship Champions. Congratulations to Andres Bermudez, Santiago Munoz, Christian Rodriguez, and Luca Sepulveda!
DSA Senior Santiago Munoz played the tournament of his life. Munoz won five of six games, even though he was out-rated in most of his games, and he had a last round draw versus the top board (almost 2300 in rating). It is estimated that he will gain around 200 rating points. Santiago also won a $500 scholarship for being the Top 12th grader. Congratulations, Santiago!
The K8 team also won 1st place in the Open with a huge last round, winning the tournament by a full two points. We are looking forward to this K8 team filling the role of our K12 team once they graduate this May. Congratulations to Giuliano Chizzolini, Matteo Russionello, Valentina Bermudez, and Lucas Gil-Estiz. Lucas played an excellent tournament with big wins even when he was out-rated by hundreds of points. It was a great feat for these players to win this section since there were only four of them!
Our K5 team had just 3 players, but still placed and won a trophy for 5th place. Congratulations to Lucas Martinez, Simon Gil-Estiz, and Jesus Bermudez!
