2012-05-30 : US Top Kids to Participate in Online Invitational                                                                 
16 of the U.S.A.'s top young chess talents will be participating in two new invitational competitions on June 8-10: the Chesskid.com U.S. under-12 Invitational and the Chesskid.com U.S. under-8 Invitational.

The matches will be covered via internet streaming video , with a child audience in mind, by IM David Pruess, Expert David Petty, and IM Daniel Rensch.

Us Online InvitationalThe two 8-player sections will each be played in a round robin format-- each player plays each other player one time-- with the pairings known weeks in advance. There is a boom coming in the quality of young chess players in the U.S., but for the moment there are few or no opportunities for the youngest talents to practice playing in such "closed" tournaments, where you face only strong players, and know all your opponents in advance.

Such events are both good for a player's development, and extremely common at professional levels, so it's high time that younger American players have a chance to play in them. The response was extremely positive, as almost all the top eligible players decided to participate.
