Micah and Tov Fisher-Kirshner blitz it out for the first place trophy after tying in the 1994 Young PeopleĀ“s Tournament. Under the old rules of the tournament before 1994 Tov would have won on tie-breaks. Under the new rules a biltz match would break any ties. Micah won. Many years later they still played each other for that same trophy. :0)

Chess is Forever!

OTHER SCHOLASTIC EVENTS: This link will take you to some tournaments that I do not list due to their being outside the greater Bay Area or are listed as scholastic, but have adult sections. The ones I list are generally in the greater Bay Area or a major youth State or National
