Congrats to the Winners of the June Free Online Summer Chess Camp

It is my pleasure to announce the Grand Prize winners for the June edition of the DCM Free Online Summer Chess Camp 2023. Hours of work and dedication definitely improved their chess and that is an awesome award in itself.  Additionally, the top point earners will receive an autographed copy of GM Vinay Bhat’s new book, How I Became a Chess Grandmaster. I’ll be sending the winners an email soon to work out the logistic but for now, I simply would like to say congratulations! We’re lucky to have you as part of the Daily Chess Musings community.
