Cheston Gunawan ’12 took 11th place out of 100 11th grade participants in the 2010 National Championships for Chess at the Disney Coronado Hotel in Orlando, Florida.

Gunawan lost in the last round after being ranked as the fourth seed going into the seven round tournament, which took place from Dec. 10 to Dec. 12. In the final match, he felt that he lost his edge.

“Normally, I do really well in these kinds of tournaments so I was disappointed,” Gunawan said.
