TCA Novice Tournament 2022 – U7, U9, U11 and U18 results
The Chess Academy hosted The 14th Annual TCA Novice Tournament 2022 – an event for our talented beginners in chess to experience what it means to participate in a sports competition. The tournament was reserved for players without previous participation in officially reported championships.
As a way of stimulating the presence of women in our different pedagogical processes, highlighting the triumphs of Chloe Lau (Under-18), Kayley Ho (Under-11), Elise Kelly (Under-9) and Megan Lee (Under-7). Chloe Lau, who turned 10 a few days ago, showed her talent against rivals who were older and experienced.
Hayden Kung led much of the Under-7 category, with 5 wins in the first 5 games, but lost the final one against Colt Ellison, in a vibrant game, which defined first place for Ellison. The champion only lost, in the second round, against Andrew Liu, the third in the final standings.
Kingsley Chan demonstrated his chess potential, winning the Under-9 category, ahead of Edward Shi and Max Pak, a student from our TCA class in the BHS group. Kinsley had to do his best to beat Karis Huang, one of the most outstanding women in the category, in the last round.
Victor Xing won the Under-11 category, with a perfect score after 6 victories in the same number of games. In Sub-18 the first position went to Alyssa Lam, with 4 points.
We hope to continue counting on her presence in our educational processes and events at The Chess Academy!
