The US Chess Scoop headed to the Marshall Chess Club during the start of the 95th Club Championship. Features GM Pascal Charbonneau, FM Asa Hoffman, Marshall manager Dr. Marcus Fenner, former club champ FM Brian Hulse and 13-year-old NM Justus Williams.
Another youngster, 12-year-old Christopher Wu currently leads the event with 4.5/5. Christopher was ranked under 2200 prior to the event, but has already defeated three masters and is set to shatter the milestone! He will face GM Mikheil Kekelidze in round six on Saturday, October 29th. Christopher is also the 2011 K-6 National Champion.
The Club Championship is held over two weekends- look for news on final results on CLO and see full crosstables and pairings on marshallchessclub.org.
