Day Two of the 2010 Bert Lerner National Elementary Chess Championship is complete. California has several chess players who have a good chance to be crowned Nation Champion. In the K-5 Championship section, Allan Beilin is in first place with a perfect score. In the K-3 Championship section, California’s Tanuj Vasudeva and Aaron Householder are both 5/5. Finaly, in the K-1 Championship section, Luke Zhao is only a half game back with 4.5/5. Also worth noting is the fact that Mission San Jose Elementary School is currently the second place team in the K-1 Championship section. This is an incredible accomplishment given the fact that they only have four team members while the first place and third place teams have 9 and 8 participants respectively. Should Mission San Jose Elementary stage a successful comeback, it will be their second National Championship title in two years.
