We normally don’t post much about students or friends who win tournaments, but once in a while we adjust. Today we are very proud to quickly introduce a special 3rd grader presented by Coach Levon Altounian: Nathan Thomas! He loves chess, always solves puzzles and often works with his brother who plays in higher groups. His current rating of 1485 USCF is admirable for a 3rd grader.


We do hope this is just the beginning. (Side note): How many Chess Apps can he fit into that shiny new Ipod he got?
