Weibel School started Wednesday. Chess doesn't start until September 21. I was thrilled to see a number of Weibel players this weekend in the Labor Day Kids Championship and the three/two day State Championships being held in Union City over this Labor Day weekend. We had a fine showing in the Kids Tournament.
Charlene Kwok cleaned up with five wins to take first place in the Under 600 Division. The second place winner in that section only received three points. Tied for the second place was another Weibel player Kevin Xu. Ojas Parhar took home a sixth place trophy. Weibel won the Team trophy.
In the Under 300 Division Stanley Kwok won the first place trophy with four points. Four other players had four points, but Stanley had the best tie breaks.
Other Weibel players in the Kids event were Vivaan Parhar and Amruth Settipali.
I will not know how well our players in the various section of the Open State Championship, which is mostly adults and our two coaches, GM Enrico Sevillano and Frisco DelRosario faired until Monday evening.
