Darwin Yang is in the clear lead for the Boys Under 12 section of the World Youth (Oct.20-31, Vung Tau, Vietnam) with 5.5/6. You can now watch live games of the top boards and check for complete pgn files.


Despite a round four loss, Simone Liao has climbed back to the top boards of the Girls Under 10 with 5/6.


Hannah Liu lost her sixth round game and now stands on 4.5/6, the same score as David Adelberg in the Boys Under 12 and Alena Kats in the Girls Under 14.

Many American players are still in medal contention with 4-4.5/6. Check out full details on the 28-player U.S. squad. October 25 is a rest day,so games will resume on 10/26 at 3:00 PM local time (3 AM  on 10/26 for us.) Judging from accounts from the parents, the rest day will be much appreciated: there are many complaints about poor playing conditions and excessive heat (broken ACs) in the playing hall.
