I know this kid who may be the next Bobby Fischer. He's virulently Anti-Semitic. Oh, and he's a decent chess player too.
The girl this post was about, Carissa Yip, is currently playing in the World Youth Championships. She's playing in the girls under 10 section & was ranked #19 (out of 142) before the start. After 8 rounds (3 more to go) she has 6 points. 1st place has 7, 2nd-5th places have 6.5, & there's a whole crowd at 6 (8 players!) but there are 3 rounds to go.
