CM Engman winner of SUMMERHEAT III, The New ASSU Prodigy Viktor Alvarsson Takes Second Place



CM Engman winner of SUMMERHEAT III; both playing and bein tournament director at the same time! Well done ASSU Boy.

But the big performance is ASSU:S own prodigy Viktor Alvarsson, who came second with 5 out of 7.


ASSU:s player Med student Viktor Alvarsson scored 5/7 earning him a fantastic performance around 2000 in ELO and a lot of new elo points.

Alvarsson goes from one matter of solving chess problems to wining both the rating prize and finishing second after Engman.

With his result this season he has probably played himself into the first ASSU 1: team in a very short matter of time.

Sharing third place is ASSU:s newest member Dr. Michael Piwowar from Poland (havent played since he was a young man in Poland at age 16, with a 1700 rating at the time), with a good score, 4,5/ 7 and Isak Ersholt 4,5. Piwowar took a FIDE Norm at 1900 as well! Congratulations. The Tournament was indeed an international event with 5 different nations representative (Chile, Poland, Iran, Sweden and Finland)!

Isak also made a strong tournament and finishing with 4,5 point only loosing to Engman and a + 1830 performance.

SK Rockaden Umeås Mikael Forsberg started in a very high tempo, playing great  inspiring chess, with wins against Schack 64 Lars-Göran Carlsson and ASSU:s Magnus Stenius (who arranged a lot of the tournament during play and did not perform in his usual rating span), he was at the top board in round 6, in a good position at the board, before falling for the queen king fork trap.
