Adam Sahar & Rich Dewitt lead Fairfield players in rating gains
18 year-old Adam Sahar, a Fairfield TTC player since taking up our sport as a 13 year old, earned a USATT rating of 2162 with a 7-2 record in a recent tournament in Westchester NY. Adam's new national rating places him 3rd among Fairfield TTC players and 5th among all active Connecticut players.
Rich Dewitt, a lifetime player in Fairfield, including 20+ years at the Fairfield TTC since it began, regained the top rating in the state with a 2242 rating, passing Fairfield's #2 state rated Emani McPherson's 2236. Rich's 11-1 match record won him the U-2200 title with his only loss in the U-2300 semi-final.
Adam beat Rich Dewitt 3 games to 2 with a dramatic last point at 11-9 in the final game in one of their many exciting weekly club matches.
The overall level of our regular club players continues to increase, with 8 of our club's top 10 rated players over the USATT 2000 - 'expert' level, 3 of them having crossed that threshold in the last few months.
Congratulations to Adam, Anthony Capasso and Sam Medina for their progress, and to Rich and Emani for leading the state as the #1 & #2 rated players in Connecticut.
