CalChess Grade Level Championship

November 22, 2009

This weekend I am enjoying my duties as a coach at the CalChess Grade Level Championship in Stockton. I will be posting tournament crosstables, games and photos both nights of the tournament. This blogger is extremely grateful that Calchess President Tom Langland performed the chief tournament director duties.

Below is a very instructional game played by  Srinath Goli (Mission San Jose Elementary School) who demonstrated to his opponent why masters prefer 4. c3 rather than 4. O-O in the  Italian Game. This game is a real gem and is the best performance I have seen from Srinath to date.
