Over 2100 players are competing at the 2007 National Elementary School Chess Championships in Nashville, Tennessee. The K-6 Blitz tournament was won by Sam Silberman, a full point and a half ahead of his nearest competitors. In the K-3 Blitz championship, there was a two-way tie between Jackson Chen and Benjamin Moon. The top spot went to Jackson on tiebreak points.

In the K-6 Championship section of the main tournament, after four rounds there are five players with perfect 4-0 records: Ryan Moon, Nathan Vogt, Sam Silberman, William Lugar III, and David Kogan.

In the team competition, there is a tight race going on. The top three teams thus far, all from New York, are within one point of each other. Horace Mann School leads with 12 points, followed by Hunter College Campus School (11.5 points) and I.S. 318 (11 points).
