Cool! Both Michael Auger and Adarsh Jayakumar have a chance to tie for first in this event. And so does a Missouri player well-known to Chicagoans, seventh-grader (!!) Kevin Cao.
Kristopher Meekins of Ohio leads the event with a perfect 6-0, one full point ahead of the field. But he's playing #1 seed Shinsaku Usesugi of Maryland. So good chances for the 5-1 players!
