Midway through the World Cadet Championships in Santiago, Spain, the the U.S. team is looking great, both in their Two Sigma jackets, and on the scoreboards. In the Open Under 12, Americans are doing particularly well. Americans will play on boards 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7 in round five. Nico Chasin leads the section with a perfect 5-0, including a round five victory against top seed and team-mate, Christopher Yoo.

Kirk Ghazarian is right behind with 4.5/5.
