2020 Top Dog Challenge


This year’s Top Dog Challenge once again featured CCFC’s four master level instructors battling head to head in classical and blitz matches. The players included top seeded and 2019 Top Dog Champion NM Arslan Otchiyev, 2018 Champion NM Ian Harris, NM Andrew Ryba (playing remotely) and NM Ryan Young.

NM Andrew Ryba proved to be the best prepared of the group, scoring 2.5/3 in the classical portion of the match to create a nearly insurmountable lead going into the blitz. After scoring 2.5/3 in the first three blitz games, Ryba clinched overall victory to become the 2020 Top Dog Champion!
