CHESS CHAMPS… Members of the Westfield Chess Club proudly display the medals they received during the recent Westfield Summer Scholastic Chess Tournament held at the Y. Pictured, left to right, are: Tim Woods, Ben Baron, Adam MCcloskey and Melvin Diep.
WESTFIELD — The Westfield Summer Scholastic Chess Tournament, presented by the Westfield Chess Club, took place at the Westfield Y on June 18.
The preliminary event was divided into two sections with a younger and older group. Among the winners in the younger group was John Lanzano of Westfield, who placed fourth for a bronze medal.
In the older group, Ben Baron won all six games of the round robin to capture the gold medal. Melvin Diep captured second place for a silver medal. Tim Woods won two games for a third place finish and the bronze medal, while Adam MCcloskey finished fourth for a bronze medal. All are from Westfield.
The top two finishers of the older and younger group played a round robin to decide the overall cham pion. The participants included Ben
Baron, Lavi Blumberg, Daniel Calandri and Melvin Diep.
In hardfought games, Melvin surged into the lead with victories over Lavi and Daniel. Daniel lost his queen but managed to pull a checkmate with two rooks and a bishop to pin Ben in the latter’s first loss of the event.
This result set up a showdown between Melvin and Ben. Melvin won the exchange but overlooked an attack on his queen and Ben finished with a victory to tie Melvin for first place in the finals. Daniel and Lavi tied for third in the finals.
Todd Lunna, President of the Westfield Chess Club and Life Chess Master, directed the event, where all the players won medals. For information about the club, please call Mr. Lunna at (732) 9467379.
