Youth chess players face off for fun and prizes The Third Annual Milton Youth Chess Tournament held March 4 at Milton library drew an enthusiastic crowd of players and parents from throughout Sussex County. After four rounds of intense competition, priz- es were awarded to the three top-scoring participants in each division. "This year's tournament con- tinued a great chess trend. We drew many new players from outside the Milton Youth Chess Club. Many beginners that had not played for long joined us and learned about the game's com- petitive side," said Ryan McCrea, tournament director. "The tour- nament atmosphere was focused but friendly. The parents and supporters of the players who also attended the tournament made for a lighter atmosphere." After four rounds and tiebreak- ers, three winners emerged from the chaos in each section. In the Beginners Division, Ansh Batra took top prize with 3.5 points, only ceding a draw to fourth-place James Haley. Jose Saez, Grace Challman and James Haley, all having 3 points after four rounds, went into some rapid chess, and eventually Saez emerged with second and Chall- man third. In the Advanced Division, which included players who were comfortable recording their moves and playing with a chess clock, Pranay Sanwal defeated the other five players to win with a perfect 5-0 score. Ayush Batra beat James Blair in a rapid tiebreak game to take second, while Blair took third. The play- ers from Lewes, Milton, Laurel and Georgetown were pleased with the prizes which included digital chess clocks and full chess sets with travel bags. The Milton Youth Chess Club meets from 6 to 7:30 p.m. the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month during the school year at the Milton Public Library. Membership in the club is free and open to all players ages 5 to 18.
