1. Dragon chess players did very well in K-3 Non-rated and rated U900 section. But the performance in 4-8 is unsatisfied even though we got the first place team trophy. It is very rare the majority of top five or six players in 4-8 Non-rated section are non-Dragon players. Several of our top players in this age range moved to rated sections recently.

2. Karthik, Vishnu, and Kushal won all five games and earned a perfect score.
