December 17, 2014
New York teams shined at the K-12 National Championships in Orlando, Florida, winning in 11 out of the 13 sections. There were also a large number of perfect 7-0 results. 

The Magnus Carlsen simul ended in a 10-1 victory for the World Champion. GM Irina Krush will report on that and continue where she left off from her last piece in a CLO article coming later this week. See detailed results here and MSA rated report here.
