  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!
