On the strength of better tiebreak points, Evan Ju has won the 2007 U.S. Cadet (Under 16) Championship, with 7 points in the ten-round event.

Tied at 7 points was Warren Harper, who was awarded second place. At the mid-point of the tournament, Harper had only amassed two points out of a possible five, but then followed with five consecutive wins, including defeating Ju in round nine.

Robert Lau finished close behind, with 6.5 points. The other players were Alec Getz, Thomas Riccardi and Jeffrey Haskel.

Here is the final crosstable. Additional coverage can be found in a Chess Life Online article by WGM Jennifer Shahade.
