Ten rounds are now in the books at the 2009 World Junior Chess Championship taking place in Argentina, and U.S. players GM-elect Ray Robson and GM-elect Alex Lenderman are moving up the leader board.

In rounds 9 and 10, Robson faced two 2600+ players, drawing with Russia's GM Dmitry Andreikin and defeating GM David Howell from England. Lenderman defeated the untitled but 2477-rated Mongolian player Bayarsaikhan Gundavaa in round 9, and also won against Italy's IM Daniele Vocaturo in round 10. He has a tough task for round 11, however, being paired with GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave from France, who at 2718 is the highest-rated player in the tournament.

Both Ray and Alex now have 7.0 points, tied for 4th-9th place. Three rounds remain in the event, which ends November 4.

The official site is largely in Spanish, but there is also an English-language site with much information.
