Although EAGLE Chess Academy's second tournament wasn't as heavily attended as the first, it still proved to be as exciting as ever. On Saturday, September 8, 2007 the fourth and final round ended in a 5-way tie. However, a few rounds of speed chess quickly determined the tournament winners. Many young chess players were in attendance and two proved to be great contenders.
