Interview with Zierk in Greece

The round-by-round video reports from the World Youth in Greece have been a real pleasure to watch. Check out a 45 second interview with Bay Area representative FM Steven Zierk at the end of the round 4 video below. Thanks to the Bulgarian chess news website Chessdom for all of the media available online.

why does Cameron keep getting paired with fellow U.S. players??

Jon Zierk said...

Incredibly, the US has 5 of the top 17 players in that section (and 6 of top 24) at this point, so it is inevitable with the continuing great play that some will meet. Since it is an individual and not team tourney, I believe country is not a factor in pairing --- pure Swiss.

I guess really bad luck.
