Feb 27, 2012 by Haraldur R Karlsson
Last weekend three members of the Knight Raiders played in the US g/15 Championship (each player has 15 minutes for the game). All three preformed extremely well. The following news release comes from Paul Truong:
Grandmaster Georg Meier went 6-0 to win the 2012 US g/15 Championship! The event was held on the campus of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.
In October 2011, Meier won the SPICE Cup Blitz Championship and finished 2nd in the SPICE Cup A group, the highest rated International Invitational round robin tournament in U.S. history.
In November 2011, he helped his German National Team win their first ever European Team Championship. In December 2011, Meier helped the Knight Raiders qualify for their third straight Final Four appearance.
On March 30 - April 1, he will lead the Knight Raiders in their Final Four title defense in Washington, DC.
Tech senior Zachary Haskin (Wichita Falls, TX) and freshman Trey Modlin (Ohio) tied for first in the United States g/15 Championship, under 2000 section. They both scored 4 points in 6 games.
Congratulations to Georg, Zach, and Trey!
