  • Shawn Rodrigue-Lemieux in Texas

    Shawn is now a student at the University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley on a chess scholarship. He played this weekend in the Texas Collegiate Super Finals, in which he finished with 3/4 (two draws). He beat a GM and drew an IM.

    It appears that Maili-Jade Ouellet is attending the same school. She scored 1/1 in the event.

    Always good to hear about Shawn and its a great way for him to continue his education. Two of Canada's best on chess scholarships. I also know of Razvan Preotu. Are there any other Canadian chessplayers attending universities in Texas?

      Many Canadian players studied in Texas on chess scholarships. Kovalyov, Hansen, Calugar. Some of them graduated.

        Shawn will be playing in the World Junior from September 21 to October 1 in Mexico City. With 14 GMs, there are good norm chances. Johnathan Han is the only other Canadian. Svitlana Demchenko is the lone female for Canada.
