The Second Annual Austin Chess Club Championships took place this past
weekend (Jan 6-8). Congrats to both Stephen Young and Michael Tunks,
who both played in the U1500 section. Michael, one of our chess club
dads, tied for 2nd place, bringing home a nice check for his efforts.
Stephen, one of our chess club teens, finished just out of the money,
but both players gained quite a few rating points.
The Austin Chess Club Championships is an adult tournament (with a
number of kids participating) which attracted 139 players from all
over Texas, and even New Mexico and Lousiana!
