McCartney, Balamurugan, Lara, and Kumar Top February TNA Standings

The Charlotte Chess Center hosted the final Tuesday Night Action of the month on February 27, 2024 at the CCC Main/South location. Tuesday Night Action is a weekly tournament held every Tuesday evening in which participants can play one round of USCF-rated chess, following a lecture by FM and CCC founder Peter Giannatos.

The following players won their games this week:

Top: Patrick McCartney, Shravan Dash, and Alan Cai

U1750: Diya Balamurugan, Sattwik Dutta, Trishona Kumar, Julian Parker, Joshua Garber, Benjamin Raz, and Joshua Wakefield

U1300: Satvick Kumar, Brian Lara, Nilai Gummi, Aaron Vargas, Nandhan Gummi, Shlok Kaushik, Renato Aristondo, Druv Balamurugan, Shobhankumar Subramanian, Richard Wesson, and Neal Woodruff

The overall points leader for the month of February in the top section was Patrick McCartney, who scored 3.5/4 and gained 30 rating points in the process. Diya Balamurugan scored a perfect 4/4 in the U1750 section (USCF 1398 -> 1539!) while two players (Brian Lara and Satvick Kumar) went 4/4 in the U1300 section. Congratulations to all four of our section "winners" for TNA February 2024!
