Fedja and I (Andrew Brown) are playing in the World Juniors in Athens, Greece. The tournament started yesterday (2nd) and goes till the 15th. In the first round I played 16-year-old GM Richard Rapport (2605) of Hungary, and I lost. Fedja managed to draw with IM Ulvi Bajarani (2446) from Azerbaijan.
