   California has a new chess star and his name is Milind Maiti. On 12/4/2010 Milind won five out of five games in the kindergarten section at the Calchess Grade Level Championship  in Stockton, California. The following weekend, young Mr. Maiti finished with a score of 5.5/7 in the kindergarten section at the USCF National K-12 Championship in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. This performance was good enough to tie for third place in Milind Maiti’s first National Chess Championship. Milind Maiti’s performance in these two tournaments has had the effect of changing the chess vernacular at Collins Elementary School in Cupertino, California. Now when attendees of the Collins Chess Club checkmate one another we say “check Maiti!”
