Thirty-three chess players from throughout Kansas came to the Karpov Chess School in Lindsborg to compete in the 10th annual Lindsborg Open.   The Lindsborg Open has been called the Kansas Christmas tournament because of its close proximity to Christmas.

Purdy, Oxford, Kansas tied for 2nd place with 4.0 points, each.   Gabriel and Hannah Purdy are both members of the well-known Purdy Home School chess team that often competes and wins scholastic chess team events.  Tom Brownscombe directed the event.
