On Satuday, May 12, Deepak Aaron single-handedly beat the 20 opponents who faced off trying to best a Master level player at home in Washington Park on the weekend of Mother’s Day. After allowing his opponents to choose color in the Tulip Festival the actual carnage began… Deepak 20, Opponents 0. The festival event lasted three hours, from 1:00 – 4:00. Congratulations to the New York State Scholastic Champion who continually gives honor and glory for chessplayers everywhere. Hard work and persistence pay off. Congratulations, Deepak, and all those who challenged our magnificnet champion!!!
Deepak’s simul during the Tulip Festival was a nice turn out in spite of a slow start. He probably played over 45 games! Winning all in spite of having some solid 2000, 1900 and 1800 players was pretty good for Deepak. He wasn’t too well as he was nursing a cole. Probably the open air and the competition cleared his cold away!!!
