Aryeh Lieb Shlionsky Pan American Champion!
Wins Title in Colombia!
Well isn’t that an impressive sounding article headline!
Our very own ICA student Aryeh Lieb Shlionsky conquered the Americas for his age group winning the under 8 category at the recently held Pan American Chess Festival in Colombia. Aryeh Lieb was the only representative from the United States in his group and scored eight out of a possible nine points while going up against the other best fifty-one youngsters among north and south America.
Besides doing classes at ICA, Aryeh Lieb also studies with his older brother Aaron as well as privately with ICA coach Gregory Markzon.
Speaking of which Aaron also played at this tournament and finished seventh overall out of seventy-three players in the Under 14 category. Aaron ended up with six out of nine points.
Congratulations to the Shlionsky family for representing themselves, the country and of course most importantly the “International” Chess Academy on a very international level.
