First Grader Cooper S. took 1st place in the K-1 section at last weekend’s St. Anne’s tournament. Congrats Cooper!
The scholastic tournament season is still going, with a few more regional events in the coming weeks, including one in nearby Shoreline this upcoming weekend. These would be good opportunities to qualify for the WA State Chess Championships held in Tacoma over Spring Break. Players who scored 3 or more points in any single regional tournament this year are qualified for State (Kindergarteners may qualify with fewer points in some cases), but anyone can play at the I Love Chess Too side-tournament. To look up your student’s qualification status, refer to the qualifiers’ list.
Go Team Bryant! The Bryant Chess Club strongly encourages its members to participate in tournaments. Think of it like playing a sport: the weekly sessions are practices and scrimmages. Tournaments are where you put your skills and sportsmanship to the test in a gameday setting. Our students enjoy the healthy competition and camaraderie of supporting each other as a Team. Check back here regularly for a list of local tournaments.
5 game Swiss format
Qualifying for State
Team Bryant competed at the Washington State Elementary Chess Championships in Spokane on Saturday, April 25. Students qualified for State by earning 3 or more points at regional tournaments throughout the year. This year Alex G., Max G., Jackson H., Nick H., Murrow L., Olympia L., Ethan M., Axel P., Cooper S., Angela U. and Beck S., represented Bryant at the biggest tournament of the year. The 1st-3rd grade team took 13th place behind a tough field of competitors from across Washington. Alex, Cooper, Murrow, and Nick also took home individual trophies. Please congratulate the entire Bryant Chess Club for their incredible enthusiasm and participation this year!
