    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.

    Wow, that would be strange no wouldn't it.

    Impressive how he is that good at that age.

    Goes to show, practise makes perfect.
