2014 Fullerton city chess championship Tournament Results (detailed)

The trophies awarded are listed below.  Because we have had to merge grades to make a good tournament, not every grade had three trophy winners. Obviously, when only two show up in a single grade, they will not get two trophies.  Rather, how they finished in the tournament and within their grade decided what trophy they received. For example, if someone finished third in a tour-nament that had three grades (K,1 and 2, or 6,7,and 8) they got a third grade trophy for their own grade.

The colors below indicate each tournament group (section).  Some of the grades (3d, and 4&5) were broken into two sections, and the winners and second placers in each played off for first place and third place, respectively.

* Owen not only won the kindergaten trophy, but he actually tied for first in the k-1st-2nd tournament! Not bad for the shortest (by far) tournament participant!

** William Chwa is the 2014 FULLERTON SCHOLASTIC CHESS CHAMPION.  Congratulations!!  And fourth-grader Denny Lee’s 2nd place finish in the super-champ flight was also pretty impressive - good show!!
