5335 young people traveled to Nashville, TN to play in the fifth edition of SuperNationals, making it the biggest rated chess tournament in history. The US Chess Scoop spoke to a wide range of participants including the High School Champion, Atulya Shetty, captain of the High School Championship team Edward R Murrow, Aleksander Ostrovskiy, and members of the K-8 Championship team, Masterman. Luke Harmon-Vellotti and John Hughes, also tied for second place, appear as well.
We also talked to Pobo Efekoro and Rochelle Ballantyne from the documentary Brooklyn Castle and a budding film-maker who even turned the camera on us. Anjana Murali talked about her camps to promote women in chess and FM Elliott Liu about game analysis for chess.com.
