Thanks to team members from Argo and Richards High Schools, Evanston Chess Club had an extra-large Bronze section at our September three-round event. Guest Master NM Mariano Acosta scored 2.5 and shared first place honors in the top (Gold) section with Daniel Bronfeyn. NM Ken Wallach, Bill Smythe and Josh Finkelstein each had 2 points for second place.

In the Silver section, Edward Zhang's 3.0 score earned a clear first. Michael Cordero and Tom Bareket (rating jump of 122 points) were right behind him with 2.5 points. Adrian Villacorta and Adina Bianchi tied for the Bronze section first with 3.0 scores, Christopher Brown took second with 2.5 points.

We are very grateful to the Levy Activity Center for moving us to a larger, quieter space that comfortably accommodates all three of our sections.
