The 2007 U.S. Junior Open Chess Championship was held from June 22-24, 2007 in Tampa Florida. The event had 118 young and talented players from all around the United States. The tournament ended with Co-Champions, Brian Goldstein and Edward Lu. Congratulations to both of them for a wonderful result. Here is the official article about it:

It is interesting to note that I actually personally know Brian Goldstein. He is a very talented player from Florida. I would not be suprised to see him make the National Master level (2200 USCF) in the near future.

 

The US Junior is always a great event and you should really try to take advantage of your youth and play in one of these events before you become too old. It is always fun to compete against the best young talents of the US. This is one of the regrets that I have. I never had a chance to play in an event like this because I started chess at such a late age (16 to be exact).

 

If any of our chess.com members have ever participated in a big Juniors event like this please comment back and let us know of your experiences.
