Apart from the top 3 performers in the tournament mentioned earlier, Veer delivered an impressive performance by securing 7th place with 5 points out of 7. He came remarkably close to winning, almost securing victories against the 2nd and 4th players in highly intense matches.

First Happy Pawn tournament for Aiden from the Red Knight chess club! Not only did he secure the 2nd position in the U10 category, but he also claimed the 10th spot overall in the tournament. Aiden exhibited a strong performance throughout, with his only defeats coming from the top players.
