Awonder Liang - 9 years, 3 months, 20 days beat GM Larry Kaufman this weekend.
Kaufman was awarded the GM title by winning the World Senior Open rather than by the traditional route of earning three GM norms in tournaments and a rating over 2500. But he is still a GM and an outstanding player and openings expert.
What an outstanding performance for a 9 y.o.
That was a great game! Thanks for posting it!
Wonderful story. Inspiring. Thanks for sharing it (and the game).
Why not take the pawn on b2? 20 ... Qb2?
What's the kid's rating?
Awonder Liang - which country?
USCF rating is 2115.
18. ... Bxe5! gave the white no chances. Very strange game for a grandmaster...
what am I missing 18...Bxe5 19 NxBe5 and it is at least complex. 19...RxNe5 20 Qd1+ etc.
FM Liang won the World Under 8 title in 2011...
I believe he finished 6th in the World Under 10s in 2012.
Awonder's brother is named Adream.
You know, thiswas posted six months ago.
Awonder has a chance to also become the youngest USCF Master in history. Right now he is only 11 rating points short. I believe he will be playing this weekend in St. Louis. With a good tournament he could break that record as well.
Very close now. Win over NM Eric Santarius in round 4 didn't hurt him.
Awonder is five points short and will be playing this Saturday at the State Action Championships in Fitchburg.
Am I correct in hearing he has made NM?
