Main Event III

4/26

Our third Main Event chess match was held between FM Kapil Chandran and FM Yoon-Young Kim. Both players are extremely talented and strong players. NM Ian Harris and NM Andrew Ryba commentated on the action over the two hour period. After the first two games, it was Chandran that took an early lead, winning both of the rapid games to give him a 6-0 lead going into the blitz portion of the match. Despite this nearly insurmountable lead, Kim continued to fight hard and each game was extremely entertaining. The final score was Chandran 9.5 – 2.5 Kim.

Congratulations to Kapil, our Main Event III Champion!
