India at WESPAC 2017

Final results are out from the WESPAC (erstwhile World Scrabble Cup) in Kenya, and the new World Champion is none other than our own Akshay Bhandarkar!

A hearty congratulations to the WESPA Champion Akshay Bhandarkar! May not have been playing on team India this time but he has done India proud! Really amazing performance, keeping his concentration on till the very end.

Team India – great performances by all 3 Sherwin, Ranga and Goutham. Far exceeded expectations I think with all 3 finishing in the top 20, Sherwin finishing at number 10! Proud to say that all 3 comfortably earned the bonus prize of Rs.10,000 put up by SAI for finishing in the top 50.

Ranga started an amazing 1st 2 days, keeping at the top 2 spots at end of day 2 and had the full India scrabble community drawn to following the championships! Had a really bad 3rd day but I think he fought back well to finish at 16th place. Goutham also a very steady run to finish 20th. Sherwin again finishing strong to end at 10th position. Congratulations all of you!

Akshay, it was really amazing to see you take the Championship – we always knew you had the potential but it takes a lot of preparation and concentration to actually pull it off – too good!!!

A proud moment for India!
