GENICHESK. TAVRIA. This year, two eight-year-old chess players managed to beat grandmasters. This is reported by The Guardian.

In the Swiss Burgdorfer Stadthaus-Open, eight-year-old Ashwath Kaushik (he is 8 years and 6 months old) beat 37-year-old grandmaster Jacek Stopa from Poland. Their game lasted for three hours. A few days ago, another eight-year-old boy Leonid Ivanovic (8 years and 11 months old) from Serbia also won against 59-year-old Bulgarian Milko Popchev.

Ashwath Kaushik eventually became the youngest chess player to beat a grandmaster.

"It's a very exciting feeling and amazing to be able to beat my first grandmaster on the board and it's in classical [chess] so I feel very proud of myself," said Kaushik.

Chess.com reports that there is now a significant increase in the number of outstanding chess players among young children.

"The competitive chess world 'has recently been witnessing a surge in children scoring extraordinary results at an even earlier age, perhaps propelled by the pandemic and a rating system lagging behind in keeping pace with their rise in strength,' is stated in the article."
