End of Year Bullet Championship

On April 28, 2023, the Hart House Chess Club hosted its annual Bullet Championship to crown the best player at 1+1 bullet at the Club.

CM Koosha Jaferian and WIM Yunshan Li went 17/20. Koosha perhaps is the most well known bullet player with a lichess bullet rating of 2801! Yunshan, at the time of the event, was the highest rated active U of T chess player.

Juniors Isaak Huh and Ande Li took tied third with 12/20.

IM Nicholas Vettese, NM Jim Zhao, and WFM Cindy Qiao rounded out the top-6.

Thanks for coming, and congrats to all winners!
