Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-19-13  DoctorD: No kibitzing for one of the brightest talents in the Midwest in the 1970s?

  GrahamClayton: Seems like another player who couldn't quite translate junior success into adult success. Chellstorp is now living in Las Vegas, NV and appears not to play chess at all.

For chess success probably. For personal success, maybe not pursuing chess full time was the best move he ever made.

May-30-14  ChessViking: Don't forget that Craig won the US Closed Junior Championship with a perfect score!
