National Elementary Chess Championship: Part 2

May 9, 2010

Day Two of the 2010 Bert Lerner National Elementary Chess Championship is complete.  California has several chess players who have a good chance to be crowned Nation Champion. In the K-5 Championship section, Allan Beilin is in first place with a perfect score. In the K-3 Championship section, California’s Tanuj Vasudeva  and Aaron Householder  are both 5/5. Finaly, in the K-1 Championship section, Luke Zhao is only a half game back with 4.5/5. Also worth noting is the fact that Mission San Jose Elementary School is currently the second place team in the K-1 Championship section.  This is an incredible accomplishment given the fact that they only have four team members while the first place and third place teams have 9 and 8 participants respectively.  Should Mission San Jose Elementary stage a successful comeback, it will be their second National Championship title in two years.

National Elementary Chess Championship

May 8, 2010

   The 2010 Bert Lerner National Elementary Chess Championship began on 5/7/2010. The best young chess players in the United states have gathered in Atlanta, Georgia to fulfill dreams of becoming a National Chess Champion. Well over 50 of Northern California’s top scholastic chess players have concluded their first day in the 2010  Bert Lerner National Elementary Chess Championship.  Mission San Jose Elementary School students  Amit Sant, Mihir Bhuptani, John Chan and Luke Zhao all have perfect scores thus far. This is not surprising as Mission San Jose Elementary School won the National Elementary Chess Championship in 2009. I will continue to provide games and updates from the 2010 USCF National Elementary Chess Championship during this eventful weekend.
