Congratulations to 11 year old Ben Shoykhet, SPICE Junior Team Member, (and his coach / supporter IMs Irene Kharisma Sukandar / Eric Rosen) for finishing in a tie for 6th place in his 1st ever National Elementary School Championship with 5.5 / 7. What is even more impressive is he started with 0.5 / 2, then won the last 5 straight games!
