2009 United States Junior Open

Chess Championship

Milwaukee, WI

The event was a resounding success with 158 participants from all over the country competing for the Under 11, Under 15, and Under 21 national titles. The Under 21 section had the added bonus of a $450 first prize and a qualification spot in next year's US Junior Closed Invitational Event (The 2009 US Junior Open kicked off today, watch next post for results).

Results:

The U11 section was won by Milwaukee/Waukesha local Brady Harder with a perfect 5/5. His rating has skyrocketed since his first USCF rating of 1282 in November 2008, to 1604 after the US Junior Open. A 322 point gain in 8 months, not too shabby if you ask me. Brady has been working with local Master and WI State Champion Erik Santarius for the past few months.

The U15 section was taken by new Wisconsin resident Marc Christian Nazario who also went 5/5. On an interesting side note Joel Banawa (Junior Closed Participant) was good childhood friends with Marc in the Philippines. They got to see each other for the first time since Joel moved to the US.

The U21 section was a tight race until the very last round, when the dust cleared Eric Rosen from Illinois and Kevin Bu from Minnesota we tied for first place with 4.5/5. Although the $450 first prize was split equally, the trophy and most importantly the spot in the 2010 Junior Closed was won by Eric Rosen after an Armageddon game.
