    i just love the last line of this so i had to post it.

    Hikaru Nakamura leads New York Open under-2200 section

    Hikaru Nakamura, who just became the youngest chess master in US chess history, won his first three games in the New York Open in the under-2200 section to take the lead.

    All three of the opponents whom Hikaru defeated were rated around 2150. His opponents were Jerry Mc Clinton rated 2144, William W P Perez rated 2131 and Joel P Chu rated 2192.

    Hikaru Nakamura became the youngest rated chess master in US history in a tournament at the Marshall Chess Club on February 26. Because the February 1 rating list was used to determine entries into the New York Open, he was allowed to play in the Under-2200 section using his old rating of 2044.

    Hikaru Nakamura is 10 years, 3 months old. He has only been playing chess for 11 years.
