Just a couple of rounds remain in the 2010 World Juniors in Poland and Russia's GM Dmritry Andreikin appears to have the title all stitched up. He leads on 9 points from GM Jon Ludvig Hammer of Norway who has seven and a half.
Of course, there's actually a lone Aussie in the Juniors section, Sherab, while sister Emma and fellow Canberran Tamzin Oliver are both in the Girls'. After eleven games, Sherab has only 4 points. Disappointing perhaps, but one of his points included a win over 2277-rated Maarten Larmuseau.
