On June 30th, 2021 Abhimanyu Mishra became the youngest chess Grandmaster ever. He achieved this remarkable feat at the age of 12 years, 4 months, and 25 days. Mishra shattered a 19-year-old record held by Sergey Karjakin who earned the prestigious title at the age of 12 years, 7 months and 0 days. Additional he holds many other “youngest ever” titles for United States Expert, United States National Master, and International Master! Featured is Abhimanyu Mishra’s round 9 game from a 10-round tournament in Hungary. Mishra actually earned his final prerequisite (3rd Grandmaster norm) for the Grandmaster title with a round to spare!

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
