With 28 registered players and the #1 rated active player in Sri Lanka, the June MC Cup was set to be the biggest challenge yet!
Congratulations go to Sri Lanka's Majuwana Russell who achieved a perfect score, 7 from 7. You can see Majuwana thoroughly enjoyed the tournament and I am sure with less pressure than he is used to, thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday afternoon event. From all the Chess Power team, we appreciate taking time out to support the kids of Auckland at this event.
William Zhang came clear 2nd and yet again won first prize for the top kid at the event, picking up a brand new DGT Easy+ Chess Clock for his efforts.
In 3rd place, there was a 3-way tie between Wayne McDougall, Alphaeus Ang and Michael McKenzie.
The best girl for the day was Sylvia McDougall who looked so happy winning a chess set.
From the team at Chess Power, a special thank you to all the participants and parents who regularly support this event. And thank you to the new-comers who travelled to attend the event for the first time. We hope to see you at the next event and help make it even more successful!
