Over holiday break a couple of our Friday Night students, Matthew and Suzie Erdenebileg, went to Las Vegas to play in the Annual North American Open.

This is the biggest cash tournament in North America (besides the World Open) attracting 800 chess players .

Matthew and Suzie played together as a team in the mixed doubles competition, each team pairing one male and one female.

 Out of the 70 teams competing, Matthew, and Suzie scored clear first beating out all  800 players and taking home $2,000!

Matthew also won 1st in his section Under 1500. Taking home a big prize for himself as well!

 The Berkeley Chess School would like to offer a huge congratulations to Matthew and Suzie.

 Keep up the great work and don’t spend it all in one place!
