|Alena and Tanuj Still Perfect at World Youth|
|November 14, 2009|
Tanuj was on the cover of the latest CL4k as "Mr.Perfect" and wrote on his blog, Tanuj's Chess Chronicles "Thanks to Chess Life 4 Kids Editor, Glenn (Peterson) for the new moniker." So far the label is sticking! We also have two players standing strong with 2.5/3, Tommy He and David Adelberg. But in this 11-round tournament, no one can be counted out.
Alena Kats (Girls Under 14) and Tanuj Vasudeva (Under 8 Open) both have
perfect 3/3s at the World Youth in Antalya, Turkey, which runs from November 11-23.|
UPDATE: Tanuj remains perfect after four rounds! He's the only American with a perfect score as Alena Kats, unfortunately, lost.
The US team scored 13.5/25 today. See full squad scores below. Follow the action on the official website and chessdom.com. The live game link shows top boards from each section.
