IMG_20141025_170633Sarah Peng winning GP in 2014

(Sarah, we need a new photo of you!)

Congratulations to Sarah Peng, the winner of the 2017 Seneca Hill Grand Prix! With only a CMA and CFC rating of approximately 1500, this ninth grader was able to win against many players in this tournament higher rated than herself.
Sarah is a very talented chess player. She rarely plays in open tournaments and doesn’t even have a private chess teacher. However, she does attend the Seneca Hill Chess Club from a young age of 7.  When asked about the club, Sarah describes it as a “cool club” that helped develop her critical thinking and self-improvement. It also served as a stress reliever and a good opportunity to develop her social skills and make friends. The Seneca Hill Chess promotes chess as an intellectual pursuit and engaging, fun activity for students from kindergarten to Grade 12. The club’s goals align with Sarah’s expectations of chess, which is to learn and, most importantly, have fun. On her free time, Sarah listens to EDM and classical music, and plays instruments such as the trombone and the piano.

Tournament fee paid is non refundable.*

Regardless of reason, it is transferable to the same player’s next Seneca Hill GP tournament in the same school year, provided a withdrawal notification email reaches us by 6:00 p.m. the night before the tournament, except Greater Toronto Junior CC, by 6:00 p.m. on February 24.

You will receive a confirmation. Otherwise the player will be considered a no show. The player’s fee paid will be forfeited for no show. No show player may be paired for the first round.

Please try to inform us even after 6:00 p.m. to avoid pairing up with an opponent. If a player doesn’t show up at the start time of the first round, the clock will be started. The game will be rated. The forfeit time is 25 minutes. A forfeit player will be withdrawn from the tournament.

*With the exception of the last Seneca Hill GP Tournament of the year. There will be a refund minus $10 and any bursaries used and $10 for the free T-shirt.
