Lowinger Farewell Challenge


This Sunday the CCFC organized a special double round robin tournament as a special farewell to our Scholastic Director Daniel Lowinger. The average rating of the four participants was a fantastic 2370! After three games, no clear leader emerged as all of the players were within a point of each other. NM Nicolas Checa led with 2/3 while National Masters Arslan Otchiyev and Daniel Lowinger were right behind with 1.5/3, followed by NM Kapil Chandran with 1/3. An outstanding run of three victories in the final three rounds by Chandran netted him a narrow first place victory (4/6) over the field.

Finally, we would like to thank Daniel for his commitment and invaluable contributions to CCFC over the past three and a half years and wish him luck in all of his future endeavors!
