It’s not the most favorite tournament of the ICA student body for nothing, and it’s no coincidence that that appeal transferred to a rousing success for many ICA individuals, and of course our very own ICA Team #3. The Team, which was comprised of ICA coach Eugene Sokolovsky, Gregory Gabovich, Timothy Hoang, and Ethan Klein claimed top honors as the best team with an average rating under 1800 points.

Adult Classes Now Being Offered
Dear parents, Throughout the years we have always had a steady flow of slightly embarrassed parents asking if we offered adult classes. From what we understood there were plenty of moms and dads who didn’t know chess but wanted to learn (or in many cases vastly improve their rudimentary skill) in order to better communicate and spend time with their children.
