Second Place in Harlem, First in our Hearts!
The Sunset Knights won Second Place in the Rookie and Reserve sections at the Chess-in-the-Schools tournament in Harlem. Here's a highlight from round 3, Jeremy's win against a 7th grader from the Manhattan Center For Science and Mathematics. Jeremy (playing White) takes advantage of his opponent's unsafe king to launch a creative king-side attack by kicking black's f6 knight with his g-pawn. After Jeremy's queen check on h5, Black is forced to lose material and get mated.
