US Junior Girls Championships Underway!

CmCvX6yWgAAlQOgThe US Junior Girls Championship is currently underway in Manchester, NH. One of the lowest rated players in the competition, Emily Nguyen, is currently leading with 4/5. (The ratings listed on the official site are FIDE ratings.) Alice Dong won the round robin blitz tournament, which preceded the main event.

Here is a key victory of Emily’s over Annie Wang.
