US Chess Crosstable of this event

In Quad 1, Aaron Spencer took the top spot, sweeping the competition for a perfect 3.0/3. MECA Secretary Wyatt Hendrix was a point off the lead, finishing with 2.0/3. Tristan Cousineau and Jason Davis of New Hampshire tied for third in the quad with 0.5/3.

In Quad 2, Eli Slaughter demonstrated his might yet again by going a perfect 3.0/3 as well. Maine's 2020 Rockefeller representative, Miles Kaplan, scored well at 2.0/3, and Maine's 2020 Barber representative, Declan Thomas, scored 1.0/3. Newcomer Jacob Watson of Portland, in his first tournament, rounded out the crosstable scoreless.

Many thanks to tournament organizer Declan Thomas, and to Mathnasium of Portland, for hosting this event and doing its part to keep over-the-board play safe and alive in Maine! Hopefully we'll see another Mathnasium tournament soon!
