In addition to Parker, Maine scholastic player Matthew Fishbein, also from Cape Elizabeth, holds a national top-100 spot on the twelve-year-old list. Fishbein (USCF 1782) is listed as the 62nd strongest twelve-year-old in the United States on the June 2010 list. Based on his strong results in recent tournaments, Fishbein should climb even higher on the July 2010 list.


I'm happy I could make a contribution for such a worthy cause.

Congratulations Wesley
