NM Ryo Chen from Texas won the first-ever ChessKid Youth Speed Chess Championship on Saturday, July 25. Ryo triumphed against seven other incredibly talented 10-and-under youth players in this eight-player knockout event.

His opponent in the finals, FM Marco Materia from France, scored several wins but couldn't compete against Ryo's remarkable positional skills, a rarity in one so young.

FM Mike Klein (AKA FunMasterMike) recounts the full finals in detail on ChessKid.com, including this majestic positional effort.
