World Junior Championship (1997)

"Tal Shaked has won the 1997 World Junior Championship. Moreover, he won the rank of Grandmaster for his excellent performance.

The 19-year-old sharpshooter of Tucson, Ariz., scored 9 1/2-3 1/2 in the title tournament for players under 20, held in Zagan, Poland, from July 13 to 28. That put him into a tie with Vigen Mirumian, an International Master from Armenia, but Shaked earned the championship on tiebreak points."

Robert Byrne in The New York Times, August 19, 1997, Section C, p. 7.
