Posted: 5/24/2009

The New Jersey Junior Championship, held on May 8&9 2009 at Brookdale Community College, saw a tight race in the quest to represent the state of New Jersey as the Denker (men’s) and Polgar (women’s) representatives for New Jersey. ICA student Robert Elliot (1034) was an upset winner in the Reserve Section (U1400) finishing third, ahead of much stronger opponents. The staff and instructors at the ICA are very proud of him. Other ICA students who turned in respectable performances in the Open Section were Eyal Koren (6th) Alexander Katz (7th), Jeyeth Mayur (12th), Arjun Mayur (14th), Ethan Kline (15th) and Nicholas Katz (17th, rated 1374) who showed that he is a determined, up-and-coming member of the ICA family by taking on the “big guns” and playing up to the Open Section.

 

In the Reserve Section (U1400), ICA students of note where Sebastian Spitz (8th), Eric Kong (13th) and Joshua Katz (879), who finished 23rd in a field of 31 with 2/5 points against strong opponents.

 

This year’s New Jersey delegate for the Denker competition is Andrew Ng, and for the Polgar Anna Matlin. Congratulations to all from the ICA family for their performance.
