A chess prodigy that i have notice, and i belive could be the next Fischer. Born Dec. 26, 2000, in New York, he is believed to be the youngest chess player to attain an expert's level rating (2001).

He achived this feat at 8 years old 2 month. And not even a year later he has brought his rating form 2001 to 2123. Plus he created himself a FIDE rating and is now rated 2119 in FIDE. Making him the highest rated 9 and under player in the world and if that wasnt inuff he just turned 9 a few days ago.

Ther is a big chance that this kid will become the youngest Nation Master in the history of the USA. Surpassing Nicholas Nip (9 year old and 11 months).

He also earned a spot on the 2009 and 2010 All-America Chess Team.

For additional information, i create a wikipedia page.
