East Region Swiss!

For every West there has got to be an East right?

Few months ago there was the West Region Swiss. Now, it’s only fair if we have on in the East too. This year, 30 chess warriors gathered at the North York Central Library Concourse to participate in the CMA rated tournament. Isn't it a great sight to see everyone gathered in the library room to play chess?

Our filled Tournament hall

Girl power :D
There were three separate categories for the tournament: Grade 3 and under, Grade 6 and under, and Open. The tournament was CMA rated, and you can find the official results here.

Special congratulations to the winners:
Grade 3 and Under:

1. Sivan Xu
2. Joey Qiao
3. Christian Choi

Grade 6 and Under:

1. Evan Wong
2. Pirathapan Ahilan
3. Cindy Qiao


1. Yi Deng
2. Kayton Yan
3. Joshua Pavusthy

As always, participation and enjoyment is far more important than the competition result. So congrats to all participants! Winning prizes is nice, and don't forget there's always next time :)

Every CITL tournament promises to be exciting. This time, we have implemented food in the tournament process! Don’t want to find places to eat? We serve it right in our tournament hall (outside the playing hall, of course). It is both convenient and delicious.

Once again, we are fortunate to have received generous donations at the event. Thank you to all who have supported us at the event. Whether it's by donating some of your pocket change, taking pictures at the event, or simply participating, you has made CITL tournaments bigger and better.

If you missed this awesome event, you can make sure you won't by follow our updates on Facebook, our website and our blog!

Until the next CITL event :)
