Much like some of the earliest youth championship events (for example, see 1995 WYCC(1) sections whose sections were held at either São Lourenço or Guarapuava in Brazil), the dates and cities of the tournament locales were split again during this series for the event bids.

Other similar youth championships are detailed below:

World Youth Championship U16 (Girl's) (2016) and World Youth Championship U18 (2016) (women's/open sections of WYCC, some games including U18, U16 and U14) - held at Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia from September 22nd until October 3rd.

World Junior Championship (2016) and World Junior Championship (Girls) (2016) (both were at KIIT University at Bhubaneswar from August 7th until the 22nd)

Previous: World Youth Championship (2012) and World Youth Championship (Girls) (2012) (events from 2013, 2014 and 2015 have not yet been thoroughly uploaded to an event page as of yet)

Official site: (2016 World Youth Chess Championship)

  WorstPlayerEver: Picture of Aisha, she seems to be 8 years old. Is she playing in the same tournament as Pragga?

Oct-28-16  notyetagm: Wow, Pragga missed a wicked tactical sequence early in the game against Kumar and lost two pawns, later losing the game!

16 ♘c3xd5!! by Kumar is just crushing.

Oct-28-16  fisayo123: This is horrible. All the sections are all clustered together.

Not the fault of cg. When you go at the official site, it's just a hopeless mess. Can't remember I've seen anything like it. Except cg itself perhaps: editing here is truly hopeless also.

If you can find any standings....

  alexmagnus: Nikhil Kumar won the B12 section with a round to spare.
Premium Chessgames Member <All the sections are all clustered together.> That has come to our attention; we're trying to sort it out. Meanwhile you've got the games.

  Tabanus: Oops, I just requested no leaderboard. has crosstables for all six sections. One can see who belongs to which section, but... with 700 or so players I think its too much work.
