I shellacked Magnus (well, 9-year-old Magnus, at least)

Magnus age 9 is the bane of my existence. I beat him maybe once out of ever 15 games. I can usually outplay him into the late middle game, but almost inevitably I can't come up with a plan and I end up blundering or allowing him to achieve equality. Last night, though, I beat him soundly with Black in the Ruy Lopez, and I had to share.

Two more weeks and I've beaten him at age 9.5. If I can keep up this pace, I'll be a grandmaster by April (that's how it works, right?).

Thanks! I’m trying to beat age 10 now. I almost eked out a draw in another Ruy Lopez, but ended up in a lost king and pawn endgame.

Me too, but ten y.o. is tougher.
