Top 10 contest winners


In celebration of MyChessGuru's 5th anniversary, we introduced monthly 'Top 10' contest for students starting in March 2014. Ranking is based on USCF rating improvement during the month. We use 'MCG Index' to measure improvement. Congratulations to all winners and their coaches.
