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.
The 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.
