Fremont Scholastic Chess Championship a Success

March 25, 2019

FremontChess.com held it’s annual Scholastic Chess Championship on March 16th and 17th at the Learning Bee Learning Center in Fremont, California.   Nearly fifty children participated in the event to share their passion for chess while competing for the title of Fremont Chess Champion.

The tournament which was a combined effort between US Chess Mates and the Torres Chess and Music Academy had an entry fee of only $20 thanks to the generous sponsorship of Grace Wong (Director of the Learning Bee Learning Center) and Joe Lonsdale (The Head Coach for Mission San Jose Elementary School Chess Team).

The K-1 section provided Fremont’s newest chess players a stage to show off their impressive skills on. And impress they did! Pranavi Pramod and Suhas Indukuri led the way with 3.5/4. Other players who performed admirably are Karanveer Singh Saran, Davin Lazar Vinod, Eayon Hsu and Emmett Zhao.

The largest and most competitive was grades 2-4. Joshua Huang won first place with 4.5/5 followed closely Dhruv Sheth with 4/5. From a tournament director’s standpoint, this group was a pleasure to watch. There was at least one interesting game to watch every round. It was wonderful to see so much up and coming talent.

The 5-8’th grade featured many excellent players but none played as well as eighth-grader Arjun Ganesan who achieved the only perfect score in the entire tournament. Second place went to Hemanth Kumar Merugu whose only loss was to Arjun. I have no doubt that all of the competitors in this section are destined for great things in Middle School, High School and beyond.

As the organizer for the Fremont Scholastic Chess Championship, I want to take one more moment to thank all the players, chess parents and sponsors for making this tournament possible. As a Fremont native, it was a special privilege for me to serve Fremont’s up and coming chess stars.

The Fremont Scholastic Chess Championship is a Swiss style tournament (a non-eliminating tournament format which features a set number of rounds of competition, each competitor does not play every other. Competitors play opponents with a similar running score, but not the same opponent more than once.) All participants will be broken into age appropriate sections (Kindergarten (G/30), grades 1-4 (G/30) & grades 5-12 Section (G/60) and the winner is the competitor with the highest aggregate points earned after five rounds. Impressive trophies will be awarded to the top 10 in each section, top school team per section, and the top boy & girl in each grade. All other players will receive medals for participating. 

I strongly encourage any and all scholastic players in Fremont and its neighboring cities to come and join the tournament. It’s not only competitive and fun, but it’s a place where players can meet new people, make new friends, and gain a lot of experience.

For all those interested in attending, kindly visit FremontChess.com. Because of generous donations from longtime chess coach Joe Lonsdale and Learning Bee Director Grace Wong, the entry fee is only $20! As usual, please make sure that your child has a current United States Chess Federation membership . For ease of processing, you can join or renew your child’s USCF membership on the tournament application. 

I hope to see you all on March 16th and 17th at the spacious Learning Bee Learning Center which is located at

Chris Torres
