Some of the special moments from the 10th annual SPF National Open for Boys and Girls in San Mateo, California. This is the strongest SPFNO ever, with more than 400 registered players, 12 qualifying spots for the 2015 World Youth Championships, and over $100,000 in chess scholarships, prizes, and trophies.
BIG BIG thanks to all the parents, coaches, sponsors, volunteers, supporters for making this a fantastic event! We will be back at the same venue on the same weekend next year! Contracts have been signed and more sponsors will be lined up to support our bright young stars.
All pictures will be posted right here by Wednesday.
