Week 3 Chess Camp Report: Bob “The Horse” Kicked OUT of Chess CAMP!!!!
After being caught cheating in a chess game the officially unofficial mascot of the International Chess Academy’s Scholastic camp has been removed from the camp by owner Diana Tulman. Though multiple phone calls to the camp on behalf of Bob’s mommy attempted to stop the inevitable ultimately Bob’s days at the camp were checkmated.
Of course seeing as all this only happened in our official chess camp chess song entitled, “This game is your game,” none of it should really make much real world difference. Bob “The Horse” will never be kicked out.
For week three we had New Orleans own David Webster win first in his tournament section, with Josh Lerman taking second, and Phillip Blumin snatching third. In section three Daniel Khaitov took first with Alan Stolyarov second, and Greg Volynsky third.
