The 8th Silicon Valley Challenge which is hosted by y the Sun Chess Club will be coming this Sunday! The event will be held at Susan’s Dance Studio in NE San Jose.

This year takes on a little more importance since Charles graduated from Saratoga High School and will begin classes at UC Berkeley next month. Over four years, a total of 350 players participated in 11 events, with an impressive peak of 62. Charles generously treats his players to free snacks and drinks, which may help explain why many come back each year.
