The Sunset Knights at Temple Emanu-El

Six of our Knights played at the 2nd Annual Emanu-El tournament hosted at Temple Emanu-El off Central Park East. This tournament was only open to players rated over 1100 and featured a slower version of the normal weekend tournament game. Our kids played hard in the relaxed and quiet playing hall and enjoyed the free lunch and plentiful snacks generously provided by the temple's community. Congrats to medal winners Jeremy Zhang and Jomin Zhang.
