Week 5 – A Three Horse Race

Team Standings

After nine rounds of the North American Corporate Chess League’s fourth season, longtime frontrunner Google tops the leaderboard with 28.5 points.  With three rounds remaining, Deloitte and the Susquehanna International Group, only 1 point behind at 27.5 team points, will fight for the season 4 championship.

Jane Street (24.5), Qualcomm (24), Ernst & Young (23), Capital One (23), DRW (23), IBM (22), and Peak6 Investments (22) round out the top 10 in the team standings.  The top four scores from each company form a team’s score, meaning that a few close games can affect the entire leaderboard.

Individual Standings

At the sole lead of the individual standings is FM Benjamin Moon (2355) of Deloitte with 8 points out of 9.  Three strong masters are just behind him at 7.5 points – Nan Zhao (2316) of SIG, Kola Adeyemi (2236) of Google, and Christopher Yang (2290) of Jane Street.

With many team and individual prizes and such tight competition, there is everything to play for in the final 2 weeks!
