HOME OF U.S. CHAMPIONSHIP CHESS & THE COUNTRY’S TOP PLAYERS
On Sunday, IM Daniel Naroditsky went clutch to win his final game of the 2013 U.S. Junior Closed Championship proving, once again, that slow and steady wins the race.
IM Daniel Naroditsky and FM Luke Harmon-Vellotti are tied for first with one round to go, but FM Sam Sevian lurks just a half point behind the leaders.
Naroditsky entered as the tournament’s highest-rated player and has played like it. As the last player standing without a loss, his approach to the tournament has been systematic.
FM Luke Harmon-Vellotti is back in clear first with 4.5/6, after the other co-leaders heading into round 6, IM Daniel Naroditsky and Robert Perez, failed to win.
Today marks the players’ rest day, and seven of the ten players still sit within a point of each other, now with three tied atop the standings at 3.5/5 points.
