April 29, 2014
JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Arthur Guo, a second-grade student in Daphne Hamrick's Creek View Elementary School class, began chess tournament competitions two years ago, and was named a "First Grade National Co-Champion" in 2012.

He tied for second place in the national competition in 2013. Today, Guo is ranked No. 1 among players 7 and younger in the United States.

He will represent the U.S. in the World Youth Championship in South Africa in September. Because his United States Chess Federation rating tops 1800 prior to his eighth birthday, Guo will be selected to join the 2015 All-American Chess Team. He will be honored at the 2014 National K-12 Championship in Orlando in December.
