KLA Chess at the Jimmy Quon Scholastic


Ely Sanchez, Stetson Beck and John Gulpo all represented KLA at the Jimmy Quon Scholastic  held at the San Diego Chess Club at Balboa Park. This was the very first tournament that KLA chess has competed in and all three students represented KLA well.

All three students entered the tournament unrated and were paired with stoke of the top players in the Novice division.

Stetson finished had tournament line of 1, 1/2, 0, 1/2, 1/2,   for a total of 2.5 points out of a possible 5

John finished with 0, 1, 0, 0, 1 for a total of 2 points

Overall, it was a great experience for our students as we prepare for USCF nationals next spring. Hopefully this will encourage our other students to compete and gain experience as well.
