Vinay Sharma wins Sardinia scholastic

Newcomer Vinay Sharma(left) of Niagara Falls, Ontario won the Sardinia scholastic tournament last Saturday. He did it convincingly by winning 11 games and losing none! A fine performance by the 12 year old.

Sam Santora of Kenmore lost only to Vinay to finish 2nd. Todd Thompson and Luke Grisanti tied for 3rd with 7 pts.

Other participants were Zach Madden, Bobby Mahiques, Hunter Witt, Nate and Nick Schiener, Max Peters, Nick Brennan, and James Lyon who played in his first tournament and scored a very respectable 4 pts.

Next tournament Oct. 9th. See you there!


  1. Congratulations, Sam! It is not easy to win 10 out of 11. What I cannot understand is how come you lost 3 points regular and 2 points Q, even after winning 10 points. (I thought regular should not be affected, because time limit was obviously not 30 min or more.)

  2. Congratulations!!! Vinay for 11/11.Keep on strike!
