Two of our Chess Gaja students played fantastic chess in the T H ROGERS TOURNAMENT held on April 23, 2022, in Houston, Texas, USA. The tournament had multiple sections, and we have the results in this article!

Nivaan scored 3/4 in the tournament in the 100 K-12 1240-1740 G/40 section, and the loss was against the runner up of the tournament Pratham Uchila(1562).

Nivaan’s performance increased his rating from 1255 to 1370. Nivaan has been rapidly improving and only recently he had gained 182 rating points in another event!

Notably, one of the drawn matches was against the tournament’s winner Micheal Zeng.
