Chess.com and chesskid.com are sponsoring an online invitational this coming weekend for some of the USA's top juniors in the U12 and U8 divisions. There will be 8 kids in each section and they'll play a round robin at time controls of G/90 + 5 sec increment for the entire game. The games will be played on chess.com and they'll be providing analysis as well. Here's the link.
I'm particularly interested because in the U12 division there are 4 Dallas Chess Club kids (Jeffery Xiong, Jonathan Chiang, Tommy He, and Ruifeng Li) and I've lost to all 4 of them multiple times haha. I always pull for them so it'll be interesting to see how they fare.
I still can't believe how quickly Jeffery Xiong's rating has skyrocketed. Just about 1.5 years ago he was mid 2100's. To gain 250 points in a year and a half, especially at above the master level, is really something else.
