Now Playing: Players continue improvement through the summer
The summer of 2012 saw very active club play, with most of the regular players showing improved playing levels. This was particularly noticed by returning players in the fall, who saw a drop in there competitiveness with players they previously beat.
Particularly noticed was the rapid improvement of (the original College group) players Ray and Sam, and 13 year old Adam Sahar, who earned a 1408 rating after joining the club earlier this year.
Adam has shown even better gains in club play since the Tournament, becoming competitive with all the club's best players, even taking games from some of the top 5 club players.
Besides his enthusiasm, his secrets have included being very coachable, according to club coach Dave Strang, and regular practice between club sessions on his home table with his father, and his Newgy Robot.
