Congratulations to Arizona's Representatives to the Denker and Polgar tournaments.
Congratulations to David Adelberg who won the K-12 section of the 2008 Arizona Scholastic Chess Championship with 5.5 points, to Ben Marmont whose 5 points earned him the right to be Arizona's Representative to the Arnold Denker Tournament of Champions and to Sayaka Foley who was tied with Ben Marmont at 5 points and earned the right to represent Arizona in the Susan Polgar Tournament of Champions for High School girls. Sayaka Foley, however, was also invited to participate in her tournament by Susan Polgar and therefore Arizona may send an additional representative to play in the Polgar tournament. The first alternate for the Polgar tournament is Amanda Mateer.
