This is one of the most important competition for kindergarten kids that are into chess. It is similar to the National School Chess Championship where you played with opponents of the same age. In this competition, you will know where one stands compared to kids their age. Of course, there are exception cases where one may under-perform.... just like HIM!!!
Everyone was so confident that he will be among the top 5 and so when he didn't, everyone was very surprised. But then again, he is just a little kid who has his swings. He was so not himself in this competition. He was not able to focus on the games at all and only managed to win 3 out of 6 games. With this score, he was ranked 20 out of 35 players.
But nevertheless, he was still given a merit medal for his effort.
