    I am friends with Adam Raoff on facebook, who is one of the arbiters from the London chess classic and the recent Candidates tournament. He posted this game played by 7 year old called Haolin Zhao against a 70 year old player only named as Bynnersley. I think you'll agree, this kid has got SKILLS!! 😲😲😲

    That is astounding, that a 7 yo would know the opening so well besides the hooker at the end!

    Now I feel better that my only win in the Rhyl Congress was against a 7 year old 🙂.

    Thanks for that one! Looked like a Fischer attack didn't it?

    Never trust a 7 year old with a hooker.

    Doesn't that involve Bc4 at some stage? Not sure myself as i don't play e4 or the sicilian. I think this illustrates a little theory of mine quite well.. If you are playing someone who should beat you (whether that be by rating or experience or whatever..) go for an opening with opposite side castling. White started with an extra tempo and ended with one still in tact! 😀

    Yeah I guess he did tend to play the f1 bishop to c4 even when the bc1 went to e3 first. Yugoslav with the white pawns on e4, f3, g4 is what triggered the memory. Fischer - "Pry open the kings rook file, sac, sac, mate" or something close to that.
