National K-12 Chess Championship 2011, Day 1

November 19, 2011

The first day of the National K-12 Chess Championship is in the books and more than half the field of players can no longer contend for a National Championship. Two California six-year-olds are still in contention to bring home the ultimate prize. Both Rishith Susarla and Milind Maiti scored a perfect two wins out of two rounds. Tomorrow they will play three games and need three wins to keep their dreams alive. If they can manage to stay undefeated through day two, Milind and Rishith will need to win two more games on Sunday. Based on my experiences with Milind Maiti and Rishith Susarla, I feel it is very likely that one or both of them will remain undefeated through the three grueling days.

National K-12 Championship: Day 3

December 13, 2010

Congratulations are in order for three Torres Chess and Music Academy students from Northern California who attended the 2010 USCF National K-12 Chess Championship in Florida from December 10-12. Milind Maiti, Chenyi Zhao and Ben Rood traveled across the country to this tournament less than one week after competing in the Calchess Grade Level Chess Championship in Stockton, California.
   All three of these amazing kids played admirably and finished the National K-12 Championship with more wins than losses. Milind Maiti tied for third in the Kindergarten section with a score of 5.5/7.  Chenyi Zhao tied for 26th in the first grade section with a score of 4/7. Also in the first grade section, Ben Rood tied for 9th with a score of 5/7.

National K-12 Championship: Milind Maiti is Perfect After Two Days

December 12, 2010

Milind Maiti has a perfect record after two days of intense games at the 2010 United States Chess Federation National K-12  Championship. Thus far,  Milind has defeated all challengers including the impressive Atreya Vaidya and Maggie Ni. Tomorrow morning, in round 6, Milind Maiti will face the only other undefeated kindergartener. Should Milind Maiti defeat Stephen Gerald Barrick, he will only need a draw in round seven to become a National Chess Champion.

Milind Maiti is a kindergartener who attends Collins Elementary School in Cupertino, California. On Tuesdays, Milind Maiti attends the Collins Chess Club under the direction of Chris Torres.
