CT TTA players earn personal best USATT ratings

(UPDATED JULY 30) CT TTA's most recent youth TT student, 14 year old Adam Sahar, has made great progress in less than a year and a half as a regular player at Fairfield and Bethany TTCs, reaching the U-1900 finals at a recent large NY tournament and earning a 1722 rating in the process.

(UPDATE: Adam reached 1881 at his next tournament, with wins over 3 1800+ rated  including the club's owner, 1889 rated NY Times Crossword editor Will Shortz.)

Local club players aren't surprised, since Adam has also scored club match wins over a number of our 1900 and 2000+ level players in recent weeks, including a first ever duece in the 7th win over his Coach, 2070 rated Dave Strang in late June 2013. 

  Samuel Medina, who started a few years ago as a local College student has also recently reached his best rating ever, at 1768. (UPDATE: Sam is now 1817)

And long time 2100+ level player Adis Medunjanin broke through the 2200 barrier for the first time, and earned the 3rd highest rating among active CT. players with a recent NJ tournament result including a win over a 2300+ player, boosting Adis to a career best 2213 rating.

Congratulations to all our improving local players.
