Katz wins in Sardinia

Alanna Katz (1850) gave the boys a lesson last Saturday in Sardinia, defeating the chess ambassador Mike Mcduffie, veteran John Mauer, and Pat Patterson to win the 3 round swiss event. Great job Alanna! This tournament saw the return of John Mauer (2044), who was once a near master and Jamestown City Champion,and who played for many years at the Queen City chess club. Mauer, Don Hoak (1799), and Patterson (1690) tied for 2nd-4th. Mcduffie, Austin Kossow, Ryan and Nathan Palmisano, and Carl Raymore all tied for the u1500 prize. In the scholastic section we had a good turnout with 11 entries! Pioneer Middle school 5th grader Chris Darling went 9-0 to win 1st. Its time for this kid to move up! John Osborne, Sam Tillinghast, and newcomer Francis Kilcoyne from Hornell tied for 2nd with 7.5.
