Back when I was playing OK and maybe 27 years old, I played a junior named HermanBauer from MillValley, in the HarborPointOpen. He was maybe 6'2" and 180lbs., served me right off the map (0 and 5), and was nothing like the juniors who I'd played in the previous tourneys.
Yes, those juniors do indeed exist. OTOH, he was also the only junior to make it to the 3rd round of A/Open in that tournament, a pretty big draw A. I left after that match to lick my wounds, and did not pedal back the next day to see how he would have done.
