He lost the first round and tied the next three rounds (which is called a draw.)
He moved up this year from the Kindergarten/1st grade division to playing opponents all the way up to 8th grade. He is currently in 2nd grade.
Each draw counts as a 1/2 of a point so he ended up with 1.5 points for the tournament. The points add up throughout the year and figure into a player's over all ranking.
He was excited to get a ribbon and happy to tie three of his rounds considering the harder competition!
Way to go Lil' Expert.
