IM Arthur Calugar won the 2010 U-16 North American Youth Chess championship with 6/7 and tied 1st-2nd with Nikolay Noritsyn in the 2010 Winter Super Challenge. In 2011, he tied for 3rd-5th in the Canadian Youth U-18 chess championship with 4.5/7 and tied for 1st-2nd in the Hart House 2011 Reading week open.


He once played for the University of Texas, Dallas(3) team, but joined around the same time as free-agents Bator Sambuev and Thomas Roussel-Roozmon (they do not live close enough to Toronto's suburban area) signed on to the Toronto Dragons(4) team, which includes Nikolay Noritsyn, Gergely Szabo, Kaiqi Yang, Michael Song, Shiyam Thavandiran, Raja Panjwani and Razvan Preotu for play after 2016.
