UTD Student Wins Major Tournament in Budapest
Texas (Oct. 22, 2003) - Dmitry Schneider, an 18-year-old freshman at The University of Texas at Dallas
(UTD), won the First Saturday Grandmaster Tournament earlier this month in Budapest,
Hungary. Schneider lost only one game in the entire 11-day competition -- to the second place
finisher, International Master (IM) Peter Horvath of Hungary -- and finished with a final score of
7 1/2 - 3 1/2.
The Budapest win was Schneiders second first-place finish in an international competition. Last summer, he won the Pan-American Junior Chess Championship held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he received his first grandmaster norm. Scheider is a winner of the prestigious Samford Fellowship, awarded each year to the most promising young player in the United States.
Schneider is a business administration major at UTD from New City, N. Y.
