National Elementary Chess Championship: Round 4 Update

California’s Ben Rood and Milind Maiti remain undefeated after four rounds of competition at the 2011 National Elementary Chess Championships. First grader Ben Rood is the highest rated player in the k-1 section with a rating above 1600! Kindergartener Milind Maiti, who is likely the best player his age in the United States, easily defeated a 1500 rated player in round 4. Both of the young combatants were confident and happy going into round 5.
