2015 National High School Championships kick off tomorrow in Columbus, Ohio (April 10-12). The festivities began with bughouse, which A. Sun and J. Wang won.
The blitz, also held on Thursday, was a precursor to the strength of the Main Event with IM Akshat Chandra of "Quest to GM" tying for first with Christopher Wu. Advance entries include a roster of super strong youth stars, such as Arthur Shen, Josh Colas, Justus Williams, Edward Song and Kesav Viswanadha.
