Silicon Valley Challenge on March 15

The Sun Chess Club will host the 4th Silicon Valley Challenge on March 15 in northeastern San Jose. This event is organized by my high school student Charles Sun. I will be there are well to provide assistance during registration and make sure that Charles doesn't mess up. Check out the crosstables for last year's event in Saratoga. Can we match 62 players, including 3 masters?

This tournament is highly recommended to my students, particularly those rated below 2000. I am planning to play just to have fun. If I have time between rounds or at the end of the day, I can go over some games with my students. Unfortunately, I know that some of you will be busy at MathCounts competition, but the rest of my students are encouraged to come on down!
