Jr. vs Jr. form the 2009 Waukesha Memorial

This is the 3rd round clash: Nolan Hendrickson vs Alexander Velikanov, with annotations by Nolan.Alexander Velikanov (left) [the #6 rated 11 year old in the nation] vs Nolan Hendrickson [the #86 rated 15 year old in the nation] . Nolan has increased his rating in every tournament he has played in. (Except for one where he finished even)


  1. Perhaps black should have played 10…Bxf3.

  2. Yeah Bxf3 makes sense although White gets a strong attack following Rxf3.
