I like the three sections idea.

Just curious:
According to Wiki, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Sevian)
"Samuel Sevian (born December 26, 2000 Corning NY) is an American Chess prodigy. On December 5, 2010, he became the youngest National Master in USCF history with a rating of 2206 at the age of 9 years, 11 months and 9 days."

Again, according to Wiki,
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Awonder_Liang)
"Awonder Liang (born April 9, 2003)"
So Awonder seems to miss the window to beat the record to be the youngest Master.

(Don't get me wrong. I love this kid. )

That's a mistake in Sevian's Wiki. He became a USCF master on December 19, 2010, as stated in 'Earlier career' section & also his USCF record. So the record is 9 years, 11 month and 23 days. Awonder still has the chance.
