National HS: Livestream Starts Tonight!

Three rounds are in the books at the 2019 National High School Championships in Schaumburg, IL, and round four is currently underway.

Chief TD Glenn Panner Opens Saturday’s Play

Fifteen perfect scores remain in the Championship, a number that will surely be winnowed down by the end of the day’s play. Some of those fifteen have had to win multiple upset victories, including Joseph Truelson, a 2140 rated player from Washington who has defeated Ben Li (2476) and Justin Paul (2337) on his way to the top boards.

Truelson drew New York’s Brandon Nydick in the fourth round.
