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.
