The Bi-Cultural Day School chess team took an impressive third place overall in the NECA (National Educational Chess Association) Chess Tournament, held February 5 at Stamford’s Italian Center. Team members Nathan Tadiashvilli, Gabriel Haron and Eric Kwalwasser were among 75 students hoping to shout out “checkmate.” In addition to their team win, Tadiashvilli placed third and Haron placed fourth in the tournament’s primary open division. This follows the team’s fourth place win at the 32nd NECA Chess Tournament on December 11 at the King School in which 72 students participated. In that tournament, Kwalwasser raised high the first place trophy in the primary novice division, while Tadiashvilli placed first and Haron placed sixth in the primary open division.
